    I decided that my car could look a lot better after having settled for the various add-ons you get at the drive-thru washers. I live in an apartment and thus don't have anywhere to wash my car myself. So, after the latest trip through the washer, I brought it home to cool overnight. I started off using the Meguiar's clay bar over my entire car to get all the contaminants off. Highly recommend doing so before waxing. I then set about applying the wax to my car using the foam pad provided with the wax. Though the instructions said you could wipe it off as soon as you applied it, I found I got better results by letting it set/dry for at least 15 minutes. Be sure you buff it off well with a microfiber cloth, and I'd suggest having at least a couple of them because you run out of clean surface area on the cloths pretty quickly. I had to apply my wax in sunlight, which isn't recommended, but I still got very good results.

    Living in the west suburbs of Chicago, wax durability is extremely important to me. This NXT goes on very easy, and removes with no issues. My only problem with this wax is the durability. On my daily driver that sits outside 24/7/365, this wax lasted only two weeks! I applied two coats, each coat 24 hours after the previous to allow the wax to properly cure and bond to the surface. The paint was properly stripped and prepped prior to applying the NXT. Meguiars is obviously a fantastic company well known for its product lineup, but this is simply not one of their better products, period. I would suggest Collinite 845 before this wax anyday of the week, especially considering that it is cheaper, and is well known to last up to six months (ask me how I know!).

    Comments about Meguiar's NXT Generation Tech Liquid Wax 2.0 (18 oz.):

    I purchased this product as a replacement for my last bottle of Meguiar's Medallion which is no longer available. This is supposedly the next generation replacement. So far, it appears to be at least equal to Medallion, but only time will tell if it is an improvement.

    Comments about Meguiar's NXT Generation Tech Liquid Wax 2.0 (18 oz.):

    So easy to use and months to enjoy the magneficent, marvelous look of your car. Worth all the trouble and effort. I can not afford to ran out of it. You can feel your hands glide as you touch the surface of the car or whatever you use to wax it. Second application is recommended although not necessary. Only when you feel how good it is that you can not stop as you see it really worth everything you can give. I assure you heads turns not only ones but twice or even more and you would be ask what wax you use as well as what brand.

          Comments about Meguiar's NXT Generation Tech Liquid Wax 2.0 (18 oz.):

          Started using this product on my new Honda SUV in 2009. It was so good I tried it on my very old BMW motorcycle. No matter what I had used to wax my bike in the past twenty years, NXT was far and away superior. I had used so called "motorcycle only" waxes in the past. The NXT blew them all away, in terms of shine and actual protection. And, each time I used the product the shine was brighter. Now, when I go to wash off the bike at the end or beginning of the season, that shine comes through automatically. What a pleasure to use this product. It actually lasts a lot longer on cars and motorcycles than you would think. Great product.

              It works as described. I recently purchased a new 17 year old "toy" that had not been washed, much less waxed, in at least 9 years. I was very impressed with the results after using this. I've used Meguiar's products for years, but wasn't familiar with this product. After conducting extensive online research I was sold on this after reading all the rave reviews online.

              Living in the west suburbs of Chicago, wax durability is extremely important to me. This NXT goes on very easy, and removes with no issues. My only problem with this wax is the durability. On my daily driver that sits outside 24/7/365, this wax lasted only two weeks! I applied two coats, each coat 24 hours after the previous to allow the wax to properly cure and bond to the surface. The paint was properly stripped and prepped prior to applying the NXT.
