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.

i've used it since my car arrived in april works great the applicator that comes with the liquid works pretty well for hand use also and do two thin coats with about 2 hours cure time between, 2 thin coats is way batter than 1 coat with nxt

I used the NXT Paste Wax this past weekend. I really liked the look of the car afterwards. First time I've used a Paste wax though before... damn that was a lot of work.... lol

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.
