Initial impressions: I opened the container and the smell hit me right away-very tropical. The appearance of the wax is very similar to Meguiars Deep Crystal Paste Wax (which is the only halfway decent burgandy bottle product other than the QD). I had just washed and waxed my car (Meguiars #26) but with all the rain we've had, I figured another coat of wax certainly couldn't hurt, so I grabbed a foam hand applicator and got to work. I could not get over how easy it was to apply-seems to glide on with almost an oily feeling-real slick). I covered my entire car, then buffed off the excess. It came off just as easily as it went on. I don't remember using a wax that was so easy to remove-just wiped right off. I also tested their claim that you don't have to let the wax haze before removing, and it also passed that test. I put some on my black plastic mirrors and it also shined them up real nice. My first overall impressions are very good. Easy on and off with no streaking, even though it was in the mid 40s and near sundown when I used it. The shine is what you would expect from a quality carnuba wax-but it was dusk when I finished, so I will be looking again in the morning. I have a Mercedes SL500 to detail in the morning (it is for sale, btw-1997 40th anniversary edition with 6 spoke 17" wheels and only 11,000 miles on it). I will let y'all know how it turns out.
