    Gold Class Quick Detailer, Gold Class Quick Wax, Perfect Clarity Glass Cleaner

    The other new products in my supply order included Gold Class Quick Detailer, Gold Class Quick Wax, and Perfect Clarity Glass Cleaner.


    Firstly, Gold Class Quick Detailer. I love that the smell reminds me of the other great Gold Class products. The product felt very similar to other quick detailers. However, I didn't find the paint particularly slick afterwards nor did it add THAT much depth compared to Ultimate Quick Detailer. The "feel" of the product seemed a bit different too. Don't get me wrong, I will happily use this product, but I just don't yet see much reason to use this over Ultimate Quick Detailer, when they are about the same price and actually because it's easy to find, Ultimate Quick Detailer will probably be cheaper right now. Another great detailer, just not my favorite YET, I will keep using it and see if that changes.

    Gold Class Quick Wax - Very nice. You can certainly detect the higher natural wax content in this product in both how it applies and the finish it leaves. However, even on my black car, I don't think it's that much better looking than Ultimate Quick Wax, which is of course the more premium product. I suppose on a black car for a show, this might be the better product as people are suggesting, but I find the application/removal the SLIGHTEST bit easier with Ultimate Quick Wax. Furthermore, if a daily driver, many are reporting longer protection with UQW. Therefore, I'd just save Gold Class Quick Wax for a very special occasion on a black car. I will report this! The slickness of Gold Class Quick Wax is VERY nice. I like this product! I think it's a tiny bit harder to remove than UQW and it may not last as long. Otherwise, no reason not to use this!

    Perfect Clarity Glass Cleaner seems to be a great product. If Meguiar's gets this to more resellers than NXT, people will fall in love with it, I hope! The smell is similar to NXT Glass, but not as strong perhaps. This gives me the "mental" idea that Perfect Clarity is very similar to NXT Glass, but the slightest bit weaker. It seems to perform nicely. The product seems to be cheaper than NXT Glass at many retailers. I will likely pay the extra $1.00 for NXT as I love NXT, and I don't want it to be discontinued! It served me great for years and I'm loyal, but Perfect Clarity seems right up there too!


    Overall, it is clear that Meguiar's isn't stopping developments anytime soon! These were all extremely interesting and competent new products. We have a lot more to reach for during our car detailing. These are some of the best products out there, and I am very excited about them!

    One down side, on these particular products, I can't seem to loosen the sprayer. I like to transfer bottles when there is just a splash left to save cabinet space.

    Again, thanks for the review on these products. Sorry about the sprayer issue, but we're doing what we can to address past issues of leakage with certain bottles.

    I just want to follow up. While Ultimate Wash & Wax Anywhere is still the game changer for me, I did warm up to these Gold Class products after more use.

    The Gold Class Quick Wax is good indeed. I probably like it more than UQW, but psychologically feel I'm using something inferior since it's said to not last as long. My issues with use though don't seem so bad now. No issue really. I like it much more than at first.

    I also like Gold Class Quick Detailer more than at first. It feels like putting liquid polish on the car, nourishing the paint, to blacken it. I'm only somewhat cautious on using this since everyone emphasizes the lack of any protection it offers. I wonder if my wax layer is still working fine, if I use Gold Class Quick Detailer?

    Well, there is the follow up. These products kept growing on me. Ultimate Anywhere had just blown me away so much that I was a bit harsh on them that first week. They now only make me nervous as I psychologically worry I'm not using the best protection, when I pull them out.
