Meguiars Quik wax

Wash the car today, and ended up trying Meguiars QuikWax after running out of time for something more in depth. I actually like how well the QuikWax shined up.

Figured I'd share. Someone else might be on the fence about the spray wax. This could give you an idea. Not claiming to have the cleanest or best shined car out there. I've used the Ice paste wax and think this shined up better.

I've always used Meguiars until I got the Camaro. I switched to Ice for the decals. Just happened to see the wax at the store today and figured I'd try it. I liked the Ice, but even my wife commented how this seemed shinier.

That's for the compliments

I use the same wax as the OP on #230 and it does not mess with the strips. It does not mess up the side gills at all.

Looks good. I tried the Meguiars NXT 2.0 liquid wax on my Wife's HHR SS. I like it. I haven't used it on my Camaro yet because personally I don't think it needs it yet.

Not sure what the difference is. But this was the "Ultimate Quik Wax". Meguiars has 3 spray waxes apparently.

they do have a NXT version but I didn't see it at autozone.
