    From what I remember, Meguiar's NXT wax is middling.

    I've heard good things about black majic.

    Personally I like griots stuff the best and it rated low on there so I don't know.

    I just claybarred and waxed with the Black Magic. We'll see how well it holds up. So far I'm at least satisfied.

    I bought some Black Magic liquid wax based on this report. Maybe it was too humid, but even though I used the least possible amount for full coverage, it WOULD NOT COME OFF!

    I went through my normal routine: wash, blade, microfiber dry (I clayed and polished before last week's wax), and I applied the wax. Usually when I get done applying, I can start removing on the first panel. It didn't work this time. I had to use three different towels on each panel - when I got the initial haze off, there was this greasy residue left behind, like someone sprayed Armor-All on the paint.

    All of it eventually came off, but it took forever. The shine is good, but not worth the effort. Like I said, maybe I got a bad bottle or applied it in poor conditions (in garage, pretty humid), but I've never had as much trouble waxing a car in my life (and I do it as a part-time job).

    The only way to go....Zaino

    Seriously, anyone interested in serious shine needs to check out Zaino. Sal (owner) is a nice guy from my home town. He has built a little empire without any major marketing support or through Retail stores. The only advertising the guy does is by word of mouth. In my opinion, that says something about his quality. I've used it on all my cars and plan on using it on my brand spanking new STI after one month (heard you should let the paint on new cars age one month prior to waxing). Anyway, spend the money, wait the few days it takes to have it shipped to you and you will never look back.

    It took a LONG time to get Black Magic off, but I KNOW it was too cold to apply. I started late and went into the evening...so I thought it was my fault. Even left some spots on the car I had to wipe the next day because I couldn't see them. But man, it DOES look great.

    Next time, I'm going to buy a random-orbital buffer to wipe the wax.
