Meguiar's Ultimate Quik Wax

Anyone here have any experiences using it? I saw an ad inside a Hagerty magazine and was just wondering if this spray on wax was any good. Looks promising...

I've been using McGuires products for 50 yrs and they are all good. The Ultimate Quck Wax is good, but it is what it is...a quick wax. When you don't have the time or desire to spend a few hours waxing your car, it is a good substitute. I can use this and be done in less than half an hour but it only lasts for a week or two. If you're starting off with a good base of polish and wax, it works really good. I know there are many companies and products that are equal to McGuires, Zaino for one, but I have not found any that are really better that would make me change. For me, McGuires has stood the test of time. Or maybe better put; my cars finishes have stood the test of time using McGuires products. The important thing is to use "something" and use it regularly. If you do the finish will last for years no matter what brand you have chosen to use.

Agree with y2k10camaross, you get a good base down quick wax and detailer sprays can get her sparkling really quick. But you should get that base down. I have used meguiars on my daily cars for years. I am using Zanio on the Camaro, she is a sunny day car.

I use it and the wax is still working 2 months latter. Wash car once a week by hand if not raining and touchless car wash 2 or so times a week to get ride of dust and bugs.

Scratch X and NXT Paste, the combo worked wonders.
