Menzerna Paint Refresh (Detail Spray)

Has anyone tried the Menzerna Paint Refresh (detail spray) product? I've recently switched over to Menzerna for my polish and sealant products, and was thinking about trying this stuff in between detail jobs.

Other than this detail spray, what others do folks like the best (and why)? Before switching to Menzerna, I was using the Zaino Z-6 detail spray. It seemed to provide a short-term layer of protection...but wasn't real effective at keeping dust from attaching to the paint.

I realize there are a ton on the market...not sure what the differences are between them all.

Haven't used the paint refresh, but autogeek has some good offers on their BOGO free right not with free shipping for the next couple hours. Some good detailing sprays on there.

Not sure what to get. I'm thinking the blackfire wet diamond spray sealant and their rinseless wash.

Garage List
2010 BMW M3  [4.50]
1999 BMW M3  [0.00]
a few good detail sprays off the top of my head: cg h7, auto finesse finale, sonax brilliant shine, dodo juice red mist, adam's detail spray v2...the list can really go on but there are definitely some higher than others

I just use Optimum No Rinse in a quick detail concentration as a detail spray. Works great at cleaning light dust and leaves behind protection and gloss. It's so economical to use too.

Do you guys use quick detailers and spray waxes in different ways? I usually only use either as a drying aid or on a freshly washed car.

^ 9 times out of 10 I only use the detailer spray after a car wash (and after it's been dried). Just to give it some protection and help bring the shine out. Every now and then if the car gets dirty after a drive in the rain, I'll use a little detail spray down on the lower half of the car and the rear to get the overspray grime from the wet road off. I try to keep that to a minimum though for swirl/scratch reasons. Only when I'm desperate (road trip w/no hose available)

So I bought these two earlier as I was in a rush and the free shipping was about to end.

After I had a little time to google, I'd probably get some different products. The blackfire rinseless is probably twice the price of ONR, dp rinseless and cg eco wash. And since I use a wax on top of a sealant....a spray wax would probably have been a better choice.
