Still using Turtlewax hybrid hydrophobic wax?

Bought these ages ago.
Tested it on 1/3 of a bonnet as a drying aid then it got left behind as I always reached for my BSD CGV07 drying aid mix.
Last night I did a 2BM wash then it started to rain.
Moved the car into the garage and thought, what the heck, so gave an Autofinesse Tripple hand polish/cleanse.
Then I saw the TW on the shelf and thought AHAAA, clean dry car, perfect opportunity for a dry application.

Very impressed.
Sprayed a few squirts onto a MF applicator pad.
Wiped onto the paint like a thin film of baby oil.
Light buff/wipe.
Came off easy with any tiny damp patches flashing off leaving a streak free slick finish.
Reminds me of an thicker Gtechniq C2V3 which is easier to see where you've got an even application layer.
Hardly used any product.
And I've got 2 bottles of it

Now the hype of the initial Seal n Shine release has died down,
how many are still feeling the love for this.

I use it on everything now, it's almost too easy to use wet or dry.

Used it once on black.

Not great on black tbh, finish was streaky.

However the results on daily driving and rainwater beading has been pretty good!
Actually very impressive.

Just changed to a silver car, so will give it another go on a dry application as the last time was as a drying aid.

Looks great on my black range rover and my black navara, you're using it wrong if it's streaking.

I've used it on a few occasions over winter to maintain my black Mondeo. It's just been used on a clean car not a full decon', easy on easy off. Just what you want in cold weather conditions. Also used the Dry N Shine on clean wet wheels and the wifes car. The wifes car had no visible protection remaining, so is now been protected with the Dry N Shine.
I've still 6 bottles left (stocked up when it was cheap).

I bought 7 and gave a bottle to a friend. Got a bottle for another friend to try as well, but haven't given it to him yet. 5 should last a while. Got a couple of cars to detail soon so may use this as the LSP.
