OGP21S is crap, made from beeswax/parrafin wax which does nothing to protect your car.

The new Carnauba P21S with the grey cap is OK, definitely NOT WORTH the $50.

Its a GREAT wax. Durability SUCKS. Not worth the $80 they are asking for it. Every year they have a buy one get one free deal.

Okay, so it's not just me then haha...I've used it just to show off the black and after a wash or so it's not there anymore, but the immediate result is phenomenal!

I don't use p21s to protect the car...That's what I use Klasse for. p21s is just a topper for me.

I know this was aimed towards fminus, but while I'm not a big meguiars user, I found that their new nxt 2.0 is a great sealant, with a close look to a carnuba wax, and their ultimate quick detailer is pretty good too. They have a package at most walmarts that include both of those and more for only 25 bucks which is a steal considering the stuff would cost at least 50 if bought separately.

i agree, i actually think Meguairs are in the top 3 of the detailing products avaliable. The are OTC and provide quality w/o being insanely expensive. I have used and stand by their QDs, car washes, and also waxes. NXT is probably one of the most popular lines from Megs, smells great, very easy to use, very easy to put on and remove( DONT USE TOO MUCH THOUGH** especially if you have the spray wax, its a PITA) lol

Lusso is a GREAT choice in the $30 range, nothing beats it at that price. But there are def better choices. I LOVE Lusso! DD.com is one of the few places that carries it. Use "FMINUS" to get 10% off. The owners name is Phil too, and no I am not affiliated nor get a cut on their sales. He just gave me that code to use and he also said it was okay to share with friends.

If you really like the stuff, get the S100 version. Its the same thing at half the price

Everything from Zymol is OVERPRICED. There are a couple of very nice offering from them.

One of my favorite paste waxes is Z Concourse, but again OVERPRICED.
