Tested new product today after washing the car(PICS-INSIDE !)

I have washed the ///M3 today with Wolfgang auto bathe this shampoo i use alway's,now i have bought the Meguiar's Ultimate Quick Detailer,and it was a good day to give it a try !( no sun )
After the hand wash ,about 2 hours, i started to spray it on the car(out of the sun) it's a liquid that spray's very easy, and buffed with a microfiber cloth.(about 45 min.)
The result....never......never i have seen a shine like this...the perfect wetlook
I did the wheels also ,and in person the car shine's even more...this stuff is amazing,and very easy to buff on .
The Hydrophobic water beading formula is 100% active after 12 hours,this effect i will see when the car is outside in the rain.
I wanted to take the pics outside in the daylight ,but the rain was already there,i want to keep her clean... therefore pics in the garage.
Highly recommend this product
The pics & link to this very good product v v v v v

your car's exterior looks good. Can you also use this spray as the lube for the clay bar?

I use this to hide my swirls. Luckily my car is going in for a full correction next week. I'm stoked.

Isn't it best to put down a couple of layers of wax first? I never really understood the concept of "Quick Detailers", always thought of them as being used for touch ups. Or to finish off a wax job.

Quick Detailers are usually used to give a quick boost for the existing wax/sealants on the car. Adds slickness and protection temporarily. Still, only meant to supplement the existing wax/sealant.

I only do the full wax treatment like 3 times a year, in between those periods I use a spray detailed to "extend" the wax protection.

The car looks great. It gives a great shine, but it attracts more dust than some others. I recently switched to Adams quick detailer and the shine is still there without the dust attraction. Also there's virtually no streaking unlike the Meguiars, especially in cooler temps.
