    Well I bought most of this stuff earlier today besides the quickshine, stoner glass cleaner, and air freshner stuff.

    #1 Meguires Gold Class car wash 5/5
    Anyways I cant belive how AWESOME it is, I added 3 cap fulls and it was almost TOO foamy, super slick too, the bucket staied foamy the entire time I was amazed, totally worth the extra few bucks over the other stuff out there I have tried Turtlewax, Eagle1, Simoniz, The pink cheaper meguires, none even COMPARE. If you havent tried this stuff giver a shot it kicks ass. :pimp: :thumb: Here are some pics of it:

    (bucket you see there WAS the rinse bucket, the blue is the wash, you can see how potent and foamy this stuff is just by that)

    #2 Eagle 1 Nano-Wax...spray version. 2.5/5
    I thought it was a wax-as-u-dry but found out you simply spray it on after you wash/dry your car. Anyways its cool because it shines up the plastic moulding and protects it and buffs out of glass (overspray)...BUT I honestly couldnt tell a visual diffrence after applying it, the car did feel smoother and seems to repel water really good but thats about it. Deff not getting it again...just because I am NOT too lazy to use proper waxes, I thought this would just be good to bring out the shine/depth between waxes and after washes...which it did not.
    ...BUT If you are lazy im sure its great stuff for protecting the paint interms of how easy it is. :dunno:

    #3 Meguires Hot-Rims (wheel cleaner) 4/5
    It works good, I usually just use soap&water and wash my wheels but I just sprayed them then hosed like instructions, worked pretty damn good, not quite as good as soap, water and a mitt but it did clean the back of the wheel's and hard to get spots very well...BUT it did leave runmarks/streaks on my rotors...not bad stuff Ill use it like every 2nd or 3rd wash prob when the wheels get dirty.

    #4 Mothers Chrome Polish 4.5/5
    Awesome stuff for sure. Its fairly liquidy and goes on super easy, you rub it on then let it haze (go on to next wheel, then come back) but what really got me is how easy it came off...friggin amazing, NO effort what-so-ever just one wipe and its completly off doesnt leave black residue either...so sweet! Seems to protect/shine well but I have never used a chome specific polish before, I have used aluminum mag and chrome polish which is a mess. Deff like it and will use it again! :pimp2: :thumb:

    [size=12pt]#5 Meguires Hotshine (Tire Spray) 5/5 (aresol)
    I love this stuff IN ARESOL FORM...but...I was almost out of the aresol can and saw the bottle there which had quite a bit more in it for cheaper then the can does. So what the hell, I got it. I hate it, it works great but the sprayer sucks ass :nonono:, it says you can adjust the width which I did but the spraying is so un-even and crappy when you do that. Gonna retrun it for the aresol can version, and stick to it for sure its awesome, and I have tried lots of tire-shines. The main reason I love it so much is the adjustable size sprayer, I dont get any residue on my car or wheels. :thumb:

    (this has a thin coat of the best smelling stuff ever, the hotshine tire spray aresol version. it lasts for ever it seems and does NOT fly off at all!)



    Also if you guys hate cleaning glass that Stoners Invisible Glass with a Glass Microfibre works awesome! Doesnt leave any greasy streaks. :thumb:


    Anyways if you guys find this intresting ill continue to do this when I try new products. :dancing6:

    have you had a chance to try the quickshine? i like it a lot it does a pretty good job i think but i havent tried any other qd to compare it too. i might have to pick me up some of that hotshine. i dont use any tire shines currently but i have heard lots of good things about it.

    if you can get SprayWay glass cleaner it beats the stoner Invisible Glass stuff hands down and cost about half as much ;) looks like some very good soap, real uhhhh soapy :) i dont like the spray on waxes either... they seem kinda weak. simple green by the gallon is less expensive than the wheel cleaner and mixed fairly strong (about 3 parts water to 1 part SG) will give the same results. of course, you might want to stay with the hand washing on the wheels... its worth it to know they are "clean". and you know how i feel about metal polish, once you get your hands on some Flitz you throw everything else away ;D

    I have never used a tire shine before but i have known people who have and after a short amount of driving the dust sticks to the tires and they look even worse. Is this true with meg hotshine? If so ill just stick to cleaning them.

    Yes im 1/2 way thru my bottle.

    Where can I get this sprayway? Also for the $4.95 this mothers was and local its deff nice. So easy to remove it after applying it, it comes off as easy as rubbing your finger across dust (no joke).

    No this stuff kicks ass you will love it. I dont notice anything sticking to them at all. It doesnt fly off. Make sure you get the stuff in the Aresol can!

    Great report Matt. I love practical feedback.

    You've convinced me to try that tire shine, once my dupont stuff is gone.

    I gotta try that soap too. :thumb:

    Yeah I've wanted to get that. Use that inbetween waxing, once you DRY you car after washing it? just apply all over quick thin layer with a microfibre (or can you spray on a wet car then dry it)? Then use a quick detailer when your car gets dity inbetween washes? Thats what I was hoping out of this eagle1 but it isnt that good it works but it doesnt inrich the shine or look at all...I didnt feel like ordering online but next order might have to give that stuff a shot?

    Yeah man you will love'em both and can pick them easily up locally make sure you get the shine in the black can.

    I use megs nxt wash and the gold class wash as well. Works great, you try the turtle wax ice or megs nxt yet? Thats what I use and I get "great wax job" from all the shops I deliver parts to from all the guys there. Dupont teflon stuff works real good too, very shiny and slippery.
