Default Autoglym HD over NXT, or the reverse?

I'm just having a tough time figuring out which one should be used as an LSP. Should I be putting down Autoglym first or the other? Basically I'm attempting to get a high wet shine with reasonable durability (a month or two would work), but wasn't sure if anyone here knew if one reacted with the other negatively when layered...

Heading into the winter, I'll be doing Collinite 845 for sure as an LSP, but before the fall runs out I'd like to continue using my other waxes/sealants. What do you guys think? Or should I be topping Autoglym with a pure carnauba instead of the NXT?

....personally, I’m not much into the whole “topping” thing these days. I would rather just choose a product that has the characteristics I’m looking for and just use that rather than trying to combine products to get the end result I’m after. ….and with all the great LSP’s available today, that has become more achievable. ….just my two cents.

Anyhow, if you are looking to top one over the other, I would do HD over the NXT. While I haven’t used HD myself, the reviews I have seen typically give the nod to that product in the “looks” department. As for longevity, both should easily last you the “month or two” that you need them to even when used alone. NXT also seems to have some filling ability (intentional or not) so there may be an edge to use that if your finish has a few blemishes. …. if your finish is relatively decent, I would probably just use the HD and be done with it. Don't be afraid to do some experimenting of your own.

I agree with Kean on this. I think otherwise you will find your 845 and HD to perform very similar in looks and with longevity with the ease of use going to 845(if both are applied the same).

Excellent advice, I think the HD is an excellent final product (shine), I understand it doesn't last very long but I can't comment on this since my car is not a DD and always garaged. Very happy with this wax.

I just did a correction on my car and this is the first time I've experimented by using a coat of FMJ, followed by one coat of HD and then two coats of 1Z Einzett Glanz over it and it really brought out the blue flake in the OBP paint. Under halogen it just looks yummy. Excited to take it outside but I need to finish the rest of the panels. Can't wait!

NXT doesn't last long but it does smell great and looks good too.

I put a coat of Meguiar's 26 (carnauba wax) over my Einszett Glanz wax and it hardly did anything. My 3 cents.

I love the Autoglym Extra Gloss Protection, great for new car finish's or if you have just cleaned and claybar'd your car.

Thanks guys for the info! I think In my excitement to use AGHD for the first time I applied it first. In retrospect, it looks like the reverse was the way to go lol...ah well, guess it'll have to wait for the next round of detailing! I'm currently on the hunt in and around Boston for 845 as well as 1Z Einszett Glanz Wax to replace NXT...I'd order them online but I have some free time tomorrow so I was hoping to snag some locally at lunch. Thanks again!

BTW: Did HD first using the recommended steps, then applied NXT, waited 1 hour and buffed. So far it's been lasting through two washes and the current storm up here in New England. That's in 1 month and the beading is still decent! NXT really does last longer if you wait to buff for at least an hour.

You'll love the 1Z, for the price I just haven't used anything as simple and effective to use. Get a very good polish job before and it will compliment it well

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I see 6+ months of beading from my NXT. As said below, you've got to let it cure on the paint before removing it. . .
