Megs Ultimate spray wax is excellent on dried cars but I’m still a huge fan of Autoglym Aquawax on a washed & rinsed car. Two jobs in one (dry & wax).

I would add Sonax Brilliant Shine Detailer to your list as well. It's not the nicest in feel, and I can't comment on shine as I haven't used it in a while, but it adds real protection and water behavior that is not really matched in the spray and wipe world of products. Just don't expect it to be smooth, it's definitely a bit grabby in feel.

There's alot of confusion on this thread with spray waxes, QD's, spray sealents and gloss enhancers. Which is understandable seeing as they all do similar jobs and often don't fall into a particular category.

So I'll give my opinion on the products I've used whilst trying to categorise them as best I can.

Spray waxes,

AF glisten:
This is the only product I've used that is specifically labelled as a spray wax.
Haven't used it in quite some time but do remember it being easy to use and definitely made my performance blue ford "glisten"!
I only used this as it's intended to be and spritzed onto dry paint work and spread/buffed with a plush mf.

Gloss enhancers,

Obsession wax enhance:
This is labled as a gloss enhancer but does contain montan wax.....confused.
Only tried this a couple of times
and tbh I didn't get on with it. It flashed off too quickly and became grabby. Still have the bottle sat on the shelf so might try it again some time.

ODK exhibit:
Nice product this. Smells great, goes on smoothly and adds a good gloss. I used this the same way as I used af glisten.

QD's,

This is where I think alot of confusion starts as so many qd's claim to offer cleaning ability, gloss enhancement and protection all in one so why have a separate gloss enhancer or spray wax? More confusion!

Personally I almost never use a qd for cleaning so to avoid damaging my paintwork.

My main use of qd's is as a drying aid and to add a little gloss/protection after washing.

Odk entourage:
Another great smelling product that worked well as a drying aid and left behind a very slick feel to the panel.

Obsession wax flawless:
Not quite slick enough for me but still a good product.

Sonus acrylic spritz:
One of my all time favourites.
Smells of coconut very similar to bsd. Nice and slick, great spray head, gives a sealant like shine.

Sonus carnauba spritz:
Another great qd from sonus.
Similar performance to the above but with a wax like glow.
I remember it smelling very sweet, think it was strawberry.

Meguiars ultimate qd:
Good qd this but didn't wow me.

Wax planet poly gloss:
Another of my favourites.
A little thicker than others and can smear in hot temperatures.
BUT it gives one hell of a gloss!

Sonax bsd:
I've only just recently started using this. It's the thickest qd I've used but not as grabby as I'd expected. Personally I don't think it adds much to the finish but it does bead very nicely.

Spray sealants:

Dj supernatural acrylic spritz:
Really good product. Great finish somewhere between glossy and glass like. Good protection and durability as well.

Sonus acrylic glanz:
Very sharp blingy finish. Can't remember what its water behaviour was like or durability. Probably because I moved onto something else

Cheers.

I used bsd when it first hit the scene years ago, everyone was buying it. Got some recently and just didn’t get on with it. Seemed to dry quick and was a pain to remove. Maybe the paint wasn’t as clean of other products as I thought.

The first few times I used it I was getting spotty results, beading that was crazy in some areas and meh in the others. I found I needed to really buff it in and make sure my towel had decent coverage. I also found having a separate buffing off towel helped, as it's a thick liquid and doesn't spread quite like other QDs that need minimal product.

Try it again, making sure you buff it evenly and thoroughly over the area, and then buff off with a dry clean MF, that seemed to do the trick for me.

One that I was very impressed with was Prima HydroMax. It's a pray sealant and you supposedly have to use it in conjunction with the rest of their Hydro (water-based) products but it was really good.

Use it on wet panels while you dry.

I use BSD in a 50/50 mix with AG Aqua wax as a drying aid and pleased with the results, no issues with the BSD being grabby for me using it this way

You know when you bid on eBay thinking I probably won’t own that?. Just bought some ez car care voodoo limited hybrid detailer for £9.

Any good?
