I'm going to try that new 'Meguiers NXT' polish to see if it makes that big of a difference. It cost enough. $15 a bottle. It is suppose to outshine everything on the market and provide lots of protection from the sun,acid rain,etc...and it's suppose to fill in any swirl marks and minor scratches. So..once I detail the truck tomorrow or Sunday...I'll let you all know how it comes out and if it is worth the cost. If it lives up to it's hype. It sure sells out fast at the stores. I found this bottle hidden behind a bunch of other waxes. Hehehe...I found it!
someones gonna me pissed.

Well it took about 2 hours to wax the truck. And now it looks about the same as just about ever wax/polish I use. BUT this does seem to hide the fine scratches that most others don't hide,and the yellow looks a bit darker. So that is interesting. It was harder to get it off than most others, I think I just put on to much. So I guess only time will tell how it hold up to South Florida heat and rain! Because it is not getting another waxing till October/November. The Collinite 486S that I have been using ,last a long time and produces a great shine and it beads up in the rain for a long time too. The Eagle One, 'Wet One', goes on super easy and comes off easy to and last fairly long...and the last one I have used is Prestone 'Billet Wax'. It is about the same as the Wet One. So,time will tell if this new stuff is worth the $15 a bottle I spent for it. The Collinite is the most expensive...but it is worth it and it is a hard paste wax, all the others are liquids. I just got to wait for the rains to hit and see how well it holds up to the summer heat and rains here. I sure as hell don't want to wax it again till the summer is over if I can avoid it!. So...what all do you use???

I have always been a huge fan of Meguiars products, I've been using their Gold Class wax since it hit the market. When I saw the advertisements for the NXT Generation wax, how could I not give it a try. I was very impressed with the shine and the reflective quality of the wax, and found it even easier to use than the Gold Class [which is saying something]. After about 3 weeks I noticed that rain wasn't beading as much, and became disappointed in the product. They claimed that it was the longest lasting product they have ever made, yet I wasn't finding that to be the case. I emailed them with a poor review of the product's lasting ability [but was still very impressed by the shine] and this was their response

"Dear Valued Customer,

If you are only using beading as an indicator, your assumption that all of the wax protection is gone may be wrong. The NXT is really designed to sheet water off the paint rather than bead it up. This helps get the water off of the paint more efficiently and although it may not appear to have much wax left on it, be assured that the wax will last about two to three months.

I hope that sufficiently answers your question. If you have any more questions, feel free to email me again. Or if you would like to speak with me personally, you can reach me at 1(800) 854-8073 ext. 171. I'll be glad to help you.

Thank you for choosing Meguiar's!

Nathan Foth,

Meguiar's Surface Care Specialist "

Given that, I have continued to happily use NXT wax. As far as wanting a product that will last an entire summer, I've never seen one.

Re: What tire pressure should I actually use?

Basically for any of those "high tech" waxes to work, you have to first use a clay bar to clean the paint surface thoroughly. I've heard that NXT is just about the best store-brand polish available. I use Zaino, which can only be ordered over the internet, www.zainostore.com.
