I've used this product many years back. It does deliver a great temporary finish.

I use it or Megs #34 Final Inspection to go over the car after a wash since I have extremely hard water and the spots form faster than I can dry the car unless it's really cold out.

From an appearance standpoint, it is excellent and pretty close to my Zaino Finale but a lot cheaper. I used it one night to make sure the car was clean before going to the dealer. In my garage it looked good. However, when it was in their bay the next day it looked incredible under the halogens and much better than every other car there. I think if it comes in looking pristine the techs tend to be a little more careful around it.

I will agree though that dust is an issue and in the parking garage at work it seems to find my paint no matter where I park. The black vette next to me rarely has as much dust on it. I need to find out what that guy uses.

You know, I'm not a very diligent person when it comes to car care. I do hand wash my car when it gets dirty though. and I love the look when she's all clean and shiny. she looks stunning even now. after 3 years of ownership, just love the way she looks. that's my motivation to do more. thanks for the posting your results. I got shopping to do.

Thanks for the kind words ,about work..i'm happy to still having a job ( Worldwide economical crisis ! )But??? I'm (we are) victim of a new trend... less of people everywhere ,actualy only a few left with toooooo... much of work,you know people are not cheap is the word these days ! It's even on the wall with the inscription "The new advancement" Right not the,but "their" advancement !?!?
And yes they are making very nice numbers..."their"nice numbers !
They say also...we need to survive,my answer was....me too and every day i'm doing the work of 5 persons and for the same number than before ?!?!
I call it "squeezing lemons" ! Damn this money saving system with the sweat of what they call the good ones (the remaining lemons)! And i'm not alone in this lemon system !
So a person can be also a lemon and soon a lemon without juice , and than it's simple they look after a new lemon with new and fresh juice !
Where will it end.......the evolution of squeezing lemons (persons) personal and sadly i think never again ,because it makes very nice numbers "again" !!! Like i said "their numbers"........
