Meguiar's Ultimate Quik Wax

Although it has wax in the name there is none within. It is a polymer sealant that you mist on, wipe in, and wipe off. This is to be done on a clean vehicle unlike quick detailers that mostly clean (light dust, fingerprints, etc.) and add a little shine. This is Meguiar's version of Dura Gloss Aquawax, another spray & wipe sealant.

I got a freebie on this so I gave it a go on my White Pearl RAV4. Using two microfiber towels I started by folding them both into quarters so as to have multiple clean surfaces. First you mist the towel you are going to apply it with. Mist that towel for the next several surfaces until it becomes slightly damp from wiping in the product.

After that mist some on the paint, wipe it in, then wipe it off with the other mf towel. It flashes almost immediately so wiping it off can be done directly after wiping it on. Simple, eh? Oh, works on wheels as well.

In all honesty I didn't have high hopes for an over the counter Meg's product but I was dead wrong! This is one hell of a nice sealant! The look, depth, and shine are indeed very very good. I used it on trim and mirrors with no staining at all and the same excellent results. The Pearl flake jumped out rather than being muted by the product as some do. Meguiar says it does have some fillers in it to hide minor marring so it is possible that using it constantly could mute flake but I don't know that. I've applied it twice one day apart and the pearl flake screams to be seen....need shades in the sun for sure.

Over the next day or so the finish gets slicker and slicker until it feels like running your finger along a silk scarf. The 'look' also deepens. I like it and I am impressed.

Retail price is about ten bucks a pop but so little is used (great mist sprayer) that one bottle will do an Accord multiple times. I'm guessing here but at least 6 times and perhaps as many as 12. Once the application towel is saturated you can just wipe it over headlights, mirrors, and the like without spraying at all.

I did see it on Amazon for $6.99 with free shipping for a $25 (or more) expenditure.

All in all it sure worked well for me, I recommend it without reservation.

PS To avoid any accusations I have no affiliation with Meguiar or any product vendor/manufacturer for that matter......... Just my 2¢ worth above.

I started using this early last year, and I just spray it on the car or truck after I wash it, and dry the whole car. I have got great results with it. I bought it to replace my Dura Gloss Aquawax one weekend when it ran out. I tipicly hate Megs quick detailers but from advice from others on my detail forum I tried it.

Thanks RTexasF. Will def' look into this Meguiars Ultimate Quik Wax (sealant), as I have become preferential to the sealant's longevity/protection vs. wax's depth/"wetness" alone. . .

Could an actual wax be used to top this product, if so desired? All the vehicles in my stable are dark(er) colors, so wax tends to give a better appearance (to me) compared to sealants.

So, you just mist/spray it on a freshly washed, still wet vehicle., and then dry if off using MF/terry towels? I assume an absorber type synthetic chamois couldn't be used? Do you have to buff/rub-in lightly while drying the vehicle? I need to look into this, it'd save a good bit of time on some quick wash-&-wax sessions!

I've been using it religiously ever since it came out. It smells good, is extremely easy to work with, gives great results, and it lasts for quite some time. It's also convenient because you apply it essentially the same way that you do any ordinary detailing spray.

Great stuff for sure.

I have not used it on a wet vehicle and it is not mentioned on Meguiar's forums (that I can find by searching) being used that way. With that in mind I cannot say if that is a correct application or not......my gut says no. A dry clean vehicle will yield the best results in my opinion considering my limited usage of the product & following instructions. Use microfiber towels to apply and remove. The absorber is strictly for removing water and is designed purely to absorb, not to spread a product such as this about the surface.

I still think Aqua Wax is a better product and it is cheaper (per ounce) when purchased in the larger sizes available. For an over the counter product this is as good as it gets while keeping cost per ounce in mind. Out of your "regular" stuff? Go get this, you won't be disappointed.

From what 08coupe says this works on a clean & wet car. Try it on your own to see if you like it used in that fashion. I have not done so but it works for him so try it.

Quik Wax and Ultimate Quik Wax are two different products.

Yes, by all means but the next day. My preference would be Optimum spray wax 24 hours after the Meguiar's product was applied. The two will make a statement as to the look and also have some longevity but choose your own product.

Thank you. Yes I do like to write a lot when it has some purpose or impact. Sometimes I just like to slap people upside the head when they are being dorky! Not so this time though. Just a good over the counter product that I stumbled across by accident.

huh might have to give it a shot, I have the quick detailer product and have used that for years, doesn't last to long but it was nice when first applied especially after a wash which is recommended, has a nice smell too lol ...

Just wondering if this would help my scenario where the paint feels very rough, no silky smooth feel to it anymore, or would a trip to a good detail place be a better solution? I know price wise this is no comparison but just curious if this stuff would work well with my case to bring back at least some of the smoothness i am missing ...

Clay is the answer for the first step after a hand wash.
