Best value for money speed detailers

Hi all, long time no post

Just bought wifey a new black SUV and interested in people's best VFM quick detailer opinions

My car is a pampered baby, and has hours of polishing and waxing love. Her car on the other hand is the everyday workhorse and as a result, isn't shown the same time and affection.
But I won't be able to stand seeing a streaky black motor once its sat on my drive later this week!
I have Autosmart topaz that could keep her shiny without spending hours on it, & I have meguires quick detailer which I rarely use but doesn't last too long.

Demon shine spray on shine maybe at £7 a bottle?
Autosmart if I buy something in bulk maybe?

Basically I want to be able to keep it looking 8/10 within 20-30 minutes!
Hopefully the car will turn up freshly polished, so I can give it a quick once over, 2 coats of fusso & then forget about it for a while and leave lazy Saturdays for my car!
Thanks in advance.

I would just get BSD for eurocar parts, 750ml bottle and fairly cheap when they have those
% off deals
Good durability and fairly frugal to use

Gtechnic c2v3 - dilute 1:4 and use after each wash like you would a QD. Super gloss and good protection. £6 buys you enough for a year.

Have a look at Adams h2o guard and gloss video on you tube just apply it after washing the car no need to dry. Quick detailer and drying aid all in one.

depends on how often you want to do it. adams detail spray will look good and lasts 2 weeks. https://www.prestigecarcareshop.com/...s-detail-spray or wowo's qd which will last 4 weeks but does seem to be streaking a little big on my black metallic at the moment
theres even autoglanz smooth velvet that lasts a good few weeks and looks nice too and a little cheaper https://auto-glanz.co.uk/finishing/smooth-velvet.html

For me it would be:

Adams Detail Spray or Adams Guard & Gloss (to add a little more protection) depending on if applying to a wet or dry car - G&G is applied to a wet car.

Or still a firm favourite of mine Meguires Ultimate Quik Wax.

All of these are great on Black and its difficult to choose between them really just personal preference - i seem to alternate between them after washes.

As others have said, BSD.

I used to use AS Topaz on wifeys shopping trolley and have recently found BSD is similar, but superior all ways round. Its all-surface like Topaz, but easier to use being a spray and appears that it will be a lot more durable than the 2 months or so max i was getting from Topaz. The blingy all-surface shine from BSD is similar to the one you get from Topaz.

When time is tight, BSD really comes into its own as a drying aid and you could also mix it 50: 50 with your meguires quick detailer to make it slicker and easier to use.

Epic beading also !!

Sonax BSD is a great product as an afterwash protection top-up, though there have been mixed reviews on 'ease of application'. Have a search on here for a thread about mixing BSD. There have been many suggestions and something may be in there to suit your requirements.
