Default Waxaholic question...Meguiar's Ultimate wax

Ok, everyone knows how clean I keep my truck. I also love to wax the beast. Im getting ready to try out some Auto Glym High Definition wax that Ive heard is amazing. Just waiting for a good day to do it.

I have used all kinds of waxes ranging from Turtle Wax (GAYYYYY), Nu Finish, Meguiars, etc... I am a Meguiar's Diehard fan though. That leads me to my question. Is the new line of Meguiar's products any count? I wanna try the Ultimate wax, but $22 for some damn wax is crazy. I hated buying Meguiar's NXT 2.0 for $16 but did because its good stuff. I always used the liquid NXT and just recently picked up the Past NXT on clearance. I applied it on Sara's car and loved it. Has anyone tried the new ultimate wzx? If so, is it better than NXT?

so better than NXT? I talked with STL who done the Auto Glym review and he said that the Auto Glym was awesome and that even two weeks after waxing, his truck still looks banging. Cant wait to use my Auto Glym now. I was just curious about the Ultimate Line

what ive found online:

http://meguiarsonline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=46204

I thought it may be a upgraded NXT, but it says its a whole new formula...interesting

Also, meguiar's forum with alot of the new product reviews:

Really? Should of told me that. I am using the liquid one and that stuff is amazing. The water beads right off and the results is like looking through a mirror. Pure crazy. I too am up for a new type of wax. The wax that you said, can you give us a link on that? I wouldn't mind trying it out.

I clay barred and waxed my wife's car a month ago and water still beads off it. I just washed it again today, but I didn't have time to re-wax it. Tomorrow I will get it done. One of these days I need to do my truck, but first I have to do some body work.

man i just clay barred and waxed with meguiar's Utlimate. Its awesome! well worth it IMO, especially since its only a few bucks more than nxt generation.

a few weeks ago i used a 2 step buff then waxed with nxt generation, looked great. then yesterday i clay-bared it and used the Ultimate. My truck is crazy smooth now, i love it.

----------

both i used were liquid, only way to go. no chunks and crap. the ulitmate is a little hard to see since it drys pretty clear, but the lack of white residue is great

x2 on that! Everything I use for the truck is literally Meguiars but once I found that Auto Glym wax, I was surprised and shocked on how well it looked on the truck. Pics to come up soon on the thread.

it lasts longer than the NXT, but not as long as M21 sealant. The improved formula does just that. Both the waxes give off the same shine, they are both easy to apply and remove. The UW will last a little longer on the paint. That is all.
