Maguiar's NXT wax paste or spray?

So I wanted to put a nice sealant on my car and decided to just go to Pep Boys and use the Meguiar's NXT wax. It comes in both a paste and a liquid. I would rather go with the liquid as it would be easier to apply and quicker, but will I get the same result using the liquid as using the paste?

I have used the NXT spray wax and find it to be a good value; easy to apply and provides a nice shine after a wash.

I think our experts will probably say that the paste will provide a bit more depth of shine, and perhaps longer lasting, so it's a trade off, but personally I like the spray.

But it's also good to note that wax is not a true "sealant," if a sealant is your goal then a different category of products should be considered

Ive used the NXT liquid just as a quick get by and ill say yes it goes on and comes off easy, shine is nice. But it wears quickly, a cpl washes and it seems to be gone.

There is better stuff out there... It can't be layered either because it has micro abrasives.

I've used the liquid for a long time and enjoyed it. I recently picked up a tub of the paste at big lots for cheap and I found it pretty difficult to apply in a thin layer which made removal pretty rough.

probably better of going with the liquid. for the time you save by buffing off the paste you can apply twice as often. :-)
