Meguiars NXT Generation Tech Wax 2.0

Meguiars NXT Generation Tech Wax 2.0 paste:

Has any one used this product on their 5th GEN and if so what is your opinion?

I'm thinking of appling it to my 5th GEN(RJT)

Yes, it looks/works fine. Very easy to apply. The only downside, is the shine doesn't last very long.

Use the Meguiars Scratch X first and then apply 2 coats of NXT paste wax. Looks awesome. So far its worked wonders for me.

I have only used the original NXT liquid wax and I think it works great. When I run out of my current bottle, I may try the paste. Do you apply the Scratch X by hand? Have you tried Meguiar's New Car Polish?

I used it by hand, not sure on the Car Polish. Maybe worth a try.

Meguiars makes a synthetic wax, it may be the same thing. I use it on my Harleys and it really performs well. Make sure you use clean micro-fiber cloths. I usually dampen the one I use to apply the wax.

The NXT shines great, and is long lasting. I use it on my Camaro and my Silverado. The Silverado stays outside and I've had NO durability issues. Easy to put on/take off. It even smells nice.

Thanks everyone for the feed back, I'm going to give the NXT GEN 2.0 paste a try and I'll be using 100% cotton applicator and polishing cloth. I've heard too much about microfiber scratching and swirl marks.

The pasted must be more difficult to remove than the liquid NXT because it is really to take off. Maybe I will just stick with the NXT 2.0 liquid instead of the paste.

Used the NXT 2.0 liquid with very good results. Used the applicator that came with it and microfiber to polish off the wax with no swirl marks yet. Have put it throught the process twice so far. I love to feel the butter soft smooth feel of the paint right after.

I've tried it this afternoon and had a question. It says on the bottle to apply then let dry before you take it off. I long should I wait before taking it off (or how do I know its dry?). I waited a few minutes (basically applying on one panel, then on the next one before taking the wax off the first one and so forth...) and it gave very good results, but is it the best way to do it?

As you probably found out, you need a very small amount of the NXT wax...a little goes a long way. As for drying time, it depends on temp, humidity, etc. However, the wipe test works pretty well as talked about on their forums. Simply take your finger and wipe...about a 3-4" section. If there is no haze where you wiped, then start taking it off with your microfiber or terry cloth or cloth diaper or whatever you are using. I've left it on for as long as 6 hours...waxed in the morning, family errands, wiped it off in the afternoon. No problems whatsoever, but the car was in the garage out of direct sunlight.

I use it on my truck because of it's size. It's very easy to use and I feel it's a great product. I do like Zaino better but wouldn't try to persuade you away from the NXT.

I don't care for it. I have never had a wax that was so hard to remove and it dosn't last long at all.

I used the Liquid (but not the foam applicator it came with) got a 100% cotton applicator pad.

Worked fine for me, easy on, easy off and will continue to use it.

I used the NXT Paste on mine last weekend.
It's a good amount of work to put on but was worth it.
Right after I wiped the dried wax of it kinda looked like some of the paint was darker or wet or something but that evened out as it dried fully.
It's some of the best stuff I've used.

I bought a box of the liquid NXT intending to use it with my Ultimate Detailer. I didn't bother to see what the package said about applying with a machine. Has anyone used a power polisher with NXT? How did it go?

After wiping/buffing there were light and dark areas , i thought I missed several places and started to apply more wax. However it seems to have evened out as it cured.

Wax removal was via Zanio Blonde Towels which worked great.

Biggest complaint is the durability. Shine doesnt last very long for a synthetic wax.
