I took my car in to ziebarts and they tried selling me on the $400 diamond gloss, and when I said there is no way I'm paying that much today, he told me about this stuff from 3M that he says makes an incredible shine. Anyone know what he's talking about or used it?

I'm a fan of Klasse AIO and SG. I like to top it with Natty's Blue.

For polish, I've been using the Poorboy's SSRs with a PC.

Already mentioned, but check www.autopia.org.

I am sold on the turtle wax ice! Took 30 min for the entire application and removal, even did the plastic trim! I dont even care if it doesnt last long (which it still looks great after 3 days and 2 rains) because its so easy to do. Even comes with its own applicator and microfiber towel.

Check it out:

turtle wax ice isn't bad. it's no substitute for regular polish/wax, but it's good in a pinch, or in hot weather.

harder to see (on a black car) than a cloudy white wax, meaning it's a bit harder to see where you need to buff out.

i think it's billed as a polish too -- doesn't work that well in taking out swirl marks.

I am a big fan of Menzerna products. I haven't used them myself yet but I have seen the results from my cousin detailing his mom's black Lexus.

I am currently using the Turtle Wax Ice.
Zymol is better.

I also use the detailing spray in between waxes and again Zymol is simply better and lasts longer.

If you are going to use the Ice use it as a alternative to waxing if you dont want to spend a chunk of time waxing and buffing.

It is a nice interim product, and does give a nice gloss shine that wont break the bank.

I second this. I just detailed my car on Saturday and did the following:

- Wash with Poorboy's Super Slick & Suds concentrated car wash
- Claybar the whole car using Clay Magic
- Wash again
- Used a PC along with some Sonus SFX-2 Enhanced Swirl Remover to remove those fine swirl marks
-Klasse All In One
-Klasse High Gloss (don't attempt to use this if you don't have a decent buffer. I used this once by hand and it took me 3 hours to remove!)
-P21S Wax.

I do professional detailing on the side and the Klasse AIO along with P21S wax is just amazing. Look into it if you want to keep that paint looking like new. My car has over 40k miles so it's definitely seen some wear and tear.

Here are the results:

[quote=BiG 10]-Klasse High Gloss (don't attempt to use this if you don't have a decent buffer. I used this once by hand and it took me 3 hours to remove!)

Then you did it wrong, most likely put it on too thick.

maybe you put it on too thin....

NXT was super easy to put on. Had good results too.

+3 zymol, lasts q while and smells nice It's a little too soupy for my taste though. Paste wax is honestly the best.

Probably... but I never touched the stuff until I had a buffer. Even application, easy removal.

It's on autopia.org and properautocare.com that for the Klasse Sealant Glaze you really need to put a very thin layer on. I put about a quarter size amount on the pad and I can do about half of the car with that. You're not supposed to see it film when applying it otherwise it's too thick of a coat. The only times I've had problems removing it was when I applied it to thick but a quick spray of quick detailer on the towel gets it right off.

if you guys like klasse you might want to look at www.jeffswerkstatt.com aj.trigger probably one of the best sealants i have used and very easy on an off application. I never really had any issues with klasse comming off. but like it was said, if you use the proper amount and technique you shouldnt have many problems.

Right now werkstatt is my favorite sealant, menzerna is my favorite polish and wax depends on the car. but im liking nattys, nattys blue and souveran.
