What's the best quick wax/detailer to use....

What's the best quick spray wax/detailer to use after washing but between waxings/sealings??

I tried Meguiars Quik Detailer after washing today but wasn't impressed. Don't know what it was supposed to do.

Thanks.

I put a bit of DoDo Juice Red Mist on my 2011 E91's Sapphire Black paint on Wednesday. Even without wax or seal (my car's 4 months old, will get its first seal\wax in a few weeks), the result was fantastic; I can now see the paint's flake. Also, now that it's raining, water beads like crazy--not a bad result for a simple spray-on, wipe-off product.

While I've never used another "quick" product like this before, I'll continue with the DoDo until I stumble accross something better.

Finish Kare 425 (Ultra Slick Anti-Static Poly Wipe Spray Quick Detailer)
Stuff is amazing although relatively unknown. Extremely easy to use too, just wipe on and it will streak-free dry on its own.

I use it after every wash to clean up anything I missed and to give the car some extra gloss.
Supposedly its anti-static properties helps repel dust too.

I just picked up the huge 128oz bottle of it. Very satisfied.

I think I might give this a try come spring, I use the dodo juice born slippy for clay lube and really like it.

you guys can try drivewithpride.com. This company manufactures a product that is a quick detailer/dry wash product but also contains a paint sealant and particles of clay. Every time you wipe down your car you are re-sealing the paint as well as a very light clay. The are also the same company that manufactures tech-shine a very easy to use paint sealant that works on all types of paint, even flat or matte finishes and even wheels. It is applied in the wash process, leaves a great shine and is very fast and easy to use.

Just went to BJ's Wholesale and happened to see they had a package of two large bottles of Meguiars Ultimate Quik Detailer and a bottle of Ultimate Quik Wax for $14. Got it and just did my whole car with the Detailer.

The stuff is absolutely PHENOMENAL and very easy to use. Incredible shine. Looks better than when I finished sealing with the NXT sealant 4 weeks ago.

Consider Prima Hydro. It is a spray sealant that is easy to use and looks fantastic.

I got hooked on Chemical Brothers products and use their quick detail spray if I don't have time for a proper wash.

http://www.chemicalguys.com/Pink_Qui...wac_102_16.htm

Got a bottle to try, going for a gallon as soon as I use it up.

My favorite is Optimum Instant Detailer. I tried this one on recommendation by George (DetailedImage), after being unsatisfied with Poorboys Spray&Gloss (not very glossy), and Meguiar's Ultimate QD (streaky). The quart of concentrate makes a gallon so it's cheap, too!

And, while I didn't like Spray&Gloss, I will say that I do really like Spray&Wipe since I trust it for emergency cleaning like bird bombs. I was hoping S&G would have had the same protection with gloss, but it sort of fell short on both in my judgement. I have a quart reserved for clay lube.

Finish Kare 425 FTW. I 've been using it for a few years now and nothing beats it. Optimum Instant Detailer is my second place quick detailer also.

Optimum Car Wax is pretty durable (among the spray wax I used so far), and easy to apply
