Meguiars Swirl X

I've heard some good things about this wax/swirl remover. I was wondering if anyone else has heard/experienced anything about this product. Opinions?

I've used it on cars I've detailed for customers who haven't requested Zaino. It works well.

Might be a terrible question. Why is this used with a was or polish? Is it a cleaner before waxing?

That was meant to be with a "wax" or polish.

Stuff works bitchen on black cars...Especially if your retarded dealer took an orbital polisher to the car before delivery.

Yeah, I ordered black and should be here in a week or close. Wasn't sure if this product needed to be used after claying and before a wax or polish is applied? Or is it only used if swirl marks are present?

Works really good from past uses on previous cars. Don't get it on anything other than paint, it will not come off of any rubber edging (sunroof, door jams etc.). But, yes, it really works good, especially on darker paints.

I just used it and then followed it up with NXT afterwards. My dogs were barking at their reflections in the car, it came out so clear.

Yeah, it works pretty good. You won't be as happy as a person with a black car who uses it. I've used it then used Mirror Glaze and then NXT and whoo weeee, the car looked wet allll the time. I've only used it on cars with a lot of minor swirls, not a new car.

Ive used the SwirlX, etc., to remove minor blemishes, followed by a good wax/polish.

Its a micro fine polishing compount that works well on a clean car with minor scratches, or buffer swirls etc. Good product, have had great results with it.

My dealer obviously took an orbital my car before delivery. It looked OK, but on closer inspection in the right sunlight there was some obvious micro scratches/swirls. I applied one coat of Meguiars NXT 2.0 with my random orbital and it looks 90% better. I'm thinking I'll try another coat of NXT with my orbital and maybe a swirlbuster PAD before I go to town with the Meguiars SwirlX. I'm gonna get some tho just in case. My trunk lid is noticeably swirled by the dealer's buffer. I'm wondering if they took out a scratch because the hood looks fine.
