All they do is test for beading. 99% of everybody thinks beading = protection. Most sealants sheet water. Hell, I sprayed some solvent on a truck the other day to remove some tar and it beaded up when I washed it!

Showtime and anyone else that care to chime in...

I ended up going with Meguiar's ....

I don't have the time to go through the whole process of multiple coats as needed with Zaino.

That being said I stayed away from Meguiar's step 1,2,3 waxes also. (with a new car does one need the step 1 wax?)

I ended up going with their DEEP CRYSTAL car wash, QUIKWAX (shine as you dry), and the QUIK DETAILER (mist&wipe) and picked up their rim cleaner as well.

Do you think going with this will keep the car looking new, or do I have to take the time to do the 3 step process? remembering I have a black Fusion...

with the risk of sounding stupid...

what's involved with putting on the NXT tech wax. How many steps? and conditions needed prior to application?

or is it as simply applying after a wash? Do you use the lotion or paste?

The NXT is a apply after washing wax... It goes on and off so easy! probably the easiest wax I have ever used. I have always been happy with the results.

+1 on the NXT Tech Wax. It is almost a liquid wax. Basically squeeze it out like a ketchup bottle. Very easy to apply and remove. The spray wax seems to work quite well also.

I'm not too big on wax as you dry products. They don't protect that well and don't last too long. Like everybody else said, get some NXT Tech wax. Just remember that a wax doesn't make your car look good, it's the prep that goes before it. On a car this new you shouldn't need any correction steps yet besides claying.

A little tip on removing waxes- Mist on some water as you're wiping it off. It eliminates any streaks and eliminates any hazing.

I use klasse all in one polish followed by several coats of klasse sealer glaze. This stuff is awesome, I find that it lasts much longer than meguiars. It is much more expensive though. I detailed my buddys Roush 360R two weekends ago and I asked him if he wanted me to use klasse or meguiars. I usually end up using meguiars on customers cars because I charge less for it, but he wanted klasse on his car after he saw my car and felt how smooth the paint is after I applied klasse 4 months ago. So I clayed his car and applied klasse, I usually get a little excited to see how nice the results are when I'm done with a car. But this time I was much more excited to be touching such a sexy car.

I've always used Meguiar's Gold Class wax. But I read a good review on Eagle One's Nanowax, and I was amazingly impressed myself. Came in a pump bottle, easy to apply, and great shine.

When you have a new car you want it to look the best.  All...do yourselves a favour and check out "www.meguiarsonline.com".  You will definitely be amazed and satisfied with word detail.  The products are very easy to use and work.  Pay special attention to posts by Mike Phillips.  He is on the Meguiars team and has a passion for his job.  I have a 2006 black Sel and the ooohs and awwws I get are incredible.  It can become overwhelming at first but play around the site and have fun.

Also NXT tech wax I believe is a "cleaner wax." If you put any coats of polish on before the NXT, the NXT will take it right off. Otherwise a fine wax.

You do know that polish is just cleaning the surface of the paint and putting wax or sealant after that step is required don't you? SO there really isn't anything that a wax can take off.
