Qjuick detailer that lasts?

Looking a quick detailer that gives a good wet look and lasts around 3-4 weeks or longer if possible. Easy to use and streak free is a must. odk entourage im using at the minute and its fantastic . Also used Gtech C2v3 as well. Any others I should be looking at?

Sonax bsd will last that long but I don’t know about a wet look.
Adams will give you the wet look but won’t last.
A lot of people mix them 50/50 to have the best of both worlds.
I think you may struggle to get all what you want from any one detail spray most last a couple of weeks max. Bsd is the only one I have used that lasts longer

Is Adams quick and easy to use? I could live with 2-3 weeks if it doesn't take long to apply. The car is Waxed every 3 months so it's only a top up. Is Adams fussy with what wax it sits on?

Quick detailers DONT LAST...spray waxes and spray sealants DO.

Try opt spray wax...although youll get a houndred of recomendations for sonax bsd which youll probably end up buying.

I dond know...get what you want...lots of options out there.

Adams is lovely to use, very easy but with uk weather it might only last a week. Try a bottle prestige car care are doing free postage this weekend.
As said you will need a spray sealant/wax for the durability that you require. Plenty out there, I think there was a recent thread with suggestions.

Says upto 2 months on the website? Odk entrouge is lasting 4 weeks easy so might be worth staying with it then.

My personal favourite QD is Megs Ulimate Quick Detailer, it's very similar to Sonax BSD though, you can't got wrong with either of them, but 4 weeks maybe pushing it.

The problem with durability with any product is perhaps not so much the product itself, but the dirt on top. If you have a nice garage and you never take your car out, the beading will be fine after 4 weeks, probably longer. But if we are talking about a daily driver, left outside, it is constantly picking up dirt, dust, tar, pollen, tree sap, puddle splashes etc, and it is all of those which are effecting the beading characteristics and making it look as though a product has failed prematurely.

This is only going to be used as a topper as its well Waxed every couple of months so just some extra gloss and beading between washes really. One that doesn't affect the wax underneath if possible?
