    I have read many posts recommending carnuba be applied over NXT. Are you saying that layering is to blame?

    Layering is a myth, a waste of time and a waste of money.

    I would just wait until it gets a little dusty/dirty and then re wash the car like normal. That will take care of it.

    What you need to remove the film is water. Quick detailers or just dry wiping are usually not enough.

    Re: Q: How to remove oily film

    Without pictures, I am just speculating, but the first time I polished a car, I noticed what I thought were holograms all over the paint when the sunlight would hit it. I just had not wiped my product off well enough, and it had left streaks all over my paint, its a fairly common rookie paint correcting mistake as the streaks are far more apparent with the super clean paint. This might be the "oily" film you see. Its hard to describe what they looked like, but that might be the issue you are running into. I personally have never encountered a problem with layering waxes, and lord knows I go through some waxes. Obviously, the effect each layer of wax has after the other is diminished greatly. I always use at least two layer of LSP of some kind on my car, never had a problem with it, just like to wax my car. Hope you figure out this "oily" paint thing, I am kinda curious.

    M7 will be very oily if you use too much. The advice against using multiple layers of various LSP's was already given, but I can attest to the fact that if you use a heavy coat of M7 even by itself that will give you the oiliness. You can see it on glass in particular. You can wipe and wipe and wipe and you just end up smearing it around so the streaks go in different directions. The problem is a result of using far too much. Applying M7 is something that demands correct technique. It's a pro- product. The technique has been covered by previous discussion that's searchable. If you want something that is more forgiving in how you apply it, use the NXT by itself, or UW maybe.
