I am going give Meguiars NXT paste wax a try.

Ok you guys finally convenced me maybe the new stuff is better then the Gold Class I like so much.

I just bought a tub and next week when I wax my car I will report back.

Meguiars NXT paste vs Meguiars Gold Class paste

$16.99 vs $10.99

Lets see if the extra $6 gets me a better shine.

When I went to the clinic at Meguiar's when they released NXT, we did lots of testing on different cars of all different colors.

We found that NXT was at least equal to or better than Gold Class in creating gloss.

The major benefit of NXT though, is that because it is a polymer sealant, it radically outlasts Gold Class in terms of durability.

Remember, Gold Class was formulated to make the paint look great, but not necessarily to be durable and long-lasting.

NXT is a breakthrough product because it has the strength of #20 Polymer Sealant, but the beauty of Gold Class.

NXT is truly amazing stuff, makes me wonder what other gems they have tucked away in their labs for future release.

Yeah, and what's more, like other polymer products, i.e. Zaino and #20, it leaves the paint incredibly slick.

Why don't you layer the Gold Class over the NXT? I always use one/two layers of NXT, and then two/three layers of S100.

I have used NXT since it came out and would never go back to Gold Class
TIP - When applying apply with a back and forth motion not in circles and for best shine two coats 24 hrs apart. A little goes a long way.

Sorry I didn't update this thread sooner!

Anyway I used the NXT and don't think I will go back to Gold Class. The NXT provides a slightly better shine. But the real benifit in my eyes is it comes off easyer.

With the NXT I can put two coats on in much less time then the Gold Class.

Yeah, NXT sure comes off easy.

Another benefit you'll find is that it lasts a lot longer than Gold Class.

How long have you all been finding NXT to last?

I find Zaino is lasting way better than 6 months, in terms of still being very shiny and beading water up. That may not be the best measure, but it's all I have. Is NXT comparable?

Thinking seriously of switching to NXT...

I havn't had it on long enough to tell. It seems to be holding up slightly better. I usually wax mine every 2-3 months so I never really test longevity.

I too really like NXT paste!! (I dont care for the liquid).
I use Sonus Acrylic Spritz to bring the shine and slickness back after washing.
Or in between washes.
If you use a quick detail spray you can easily go 2 or 3 moths between waxing the car again!!


Just spray one time for ach panal and spread it around, then imediatly take a second buffing towel and buff it off.
NXT and detail spray is a fantastic pair!!

Also be sure and read the quick detailing guide on this forum at the top of the page or below my signature!!
Enjoy!
