I heard very good things about it on Audiworld from a well known detailer. It's on my list o things to buy, the list is just too long right now : )SnowbordrWRX said:
Thanks for the heads up.XtOrT said:Used it for the first time today and to my surprise it worked really well. If you use Zaino wax however it does not work. I Zaino'd my front bumper yesterday, and when I washed it today it just beaded with the Mr Clean Auto Dry.
I've never used Zaino, but most waxes are the same in that they bead intensely when first applied. I would expect it to get better over time. The other thing to keep in mind, is to use the thickest stream possible to make sure all the water runs off the car instead of spraying it. Is the nozzle adjustable so you can output a ton of water?XtOrT said:Used it for the first time today and to my surprise it worked really well. If you use Zaino wax however it does not work. I Zaino'd my front bumper yesterday, and when I washed it today it just beaded with the Mr Clean Auto Dry. Every other spot on the car came out great! I was really shocked. If your whole car is Zaino'd I wouldn't recommend it. Also the water pressure isn't that great, but overall a great buy for 20 bucks.
Hmmm..that does suck (not being adjustable). Those wheels are a nightmare, I just use a regular car sponge and it takes forever! The solution for me is going to be a refinishing (black or gunmetal - something dark) so you can't see the brake dust : )XtOrT said:No it is not adjustable, the final spray is like a light misting. You need to hold it about 1-2 feet away to hit the car. I held a good close stream on the bumper and no luck just kept sticking and beading. I'll let ya know next time I wash it, if it is any different. Now if I could find a better way to clean those damn wheels! :lol:
It does use polymers or something in the solution. The question is, if they stay on the car, is it really damaging to the paint at all?4kornrz said:...newest observation...
I washed my car the "normal" way yesterday. I use nothing but microfiber clothes. When I went to dry the car, the towel stuck to the paint like I was trying to dry sandpaper. I dont like that feeling at all.
I wound up washing the car again, then doin' the meguiars 3 step. no more sticky surface.
All in all I think this is a good time saver for the "average car" but I'll never use it again on my black jewel.
