Quick detailer to use on CSL + EXO ?

What's the best quick detailer to use on Gtechniq coatings ? As the title states I have Crystal Serum light plus EXO on my car. Originally I planned on not using a QD on the car at all as I didn't think it would be necessary however after a few washes I'm noticing some water marks in all the usual places below mirrors and handles etc.

Even if not a QD is there anything I can use to shift these marks without effecting the coating ?

Try Gtechniq's Quick Detailer, alternatively dilute some C2v3 1:1 - 2:1 (some people have been known to go as far as 5:1 and report good results) (water - C2v3) as a QD.

Tried out the Gtechniq QD today. Its not the easiest QD to use doesn't flash off as well as Chemical Guys V7 which was the last QD I used, quiet grabby and seems just like spraying water on the panel. its not unusable though and I'm happy to use it knowing its designed to be used on the coatings etc. Think I will try out some other options though when this runs out.....

Angelwax QED

I use C2V3 diluted as stated above and it works great. I also use Angelwax QED, with very good results. I use both over Gtechniq C1 crystal lacquer.

ONR to their QD dilution rate -works well for me on my CS + EXov3 coating, and in use if you spray and let dwell for a short period you know your getting the benefit of the ONR lift off of any light soiling that might be there. Doesn't add protection -just cleans which I'm happy with as my coatings do the work.
Have also used C2 diluted down to good results - esp if you want to top up the protection a little.

Ive got the same coatings on mine and have starting using kamikaze overcoat instead of a QD. its a bit pricey but i dont use it every wash so works out ok and goes on so easy wet or dry. works really well as a drying aid and looks great !!

Use it as a drying aid when the cars wet and it works really well like that. Just wipe off with a plush MF and jobs a good un. Its not grabby at all with this method.
