Meguiars smell great too. Meguiars is tough work and long wait for hazing. Many ranges which can confuse beginners. But products for trim and bumper is good. 2011 ultimate series will not cause whitening of trim, not yet launch here. Just try DG, I can't beleve the polish can further remove dirt as compare to Meguiars. Waiting time is about 10 min for each polish. The shine is supers, 1st coat already can see the difference between DG n Meguiars.

For off the shelf pdt, go for autoglym n meguire, easily found in ntuc or giant. Pretty good pdt to use. Have Been using for years now.

 

As for dg, have to order frm md himself or get frm his dealer, may have problem getting them.

 

All 3 are quality pdt.

Get certain products from certain brand would be the best bet imo.

that is what i have been doing so far.

 

I may like polishes from Menzerna but like LSP from Dodojuice and wheel cleaners from sonax.

I dont believe one brand can satisfy all your needs.

 

But for Megs LSP, see if you can get your hands on some M16, i used it on my car and lasted for 4months in our weather.

For Meg, if u use utlimate quik Detailer n quik wax, u can apply the whole car ( Glass, trim, bumper....), will not cause whitening of trim. For wax, use NXT 2, will cause whitening. If like to know more, pm me.

Have been using DG almost 3 years since MD distributes them. Having used some of autoglym and meguiar previously, personally I liked DG becos ease of use and the result is better.

Most importantly, MD explained in details how to achieve best result from products via pms, sms or online. [laugh]

Optimum is quite worth to try. Tried it and quite like it.

Autoglym I only use their SRP which is very good in removing and cleaning the surface before I use DG product after that.

I have been using AG's SRP for a few years now. As mentioned, the shine is good but don't last especially in the wet season.

However, when I was looking at earlier photos of my car, the colour seems to have faded slightly.

Is it due the the AG's SRP? Anyone having the same observation?

 

Anyway, just finished the bottle, bought Black Magic liquid wax to try out.

Find that its very hard to wipe off cleanly, even when I apply a thin layer, as compared to AG's SRP.

 

Anyone can recommend a product that is 1 time application with a gloss finish?

Applying wax followed by sealant is simply too time consuming!

I think for wetter season, it will definitely affect the durability of a product. I personal feel that an AIO will give a glossy look after application but just that the durability and shine will not be as good with a LSP apply to it, some of the AIO i tried before are Duragloss #101, #501 and Optimum Poli-Seal. Well, shine and durability comes with some extra effort with the aid of a good product. [thumbsup]

You should try DG501 or Optimum poli-seal. Both are AIO and that 1litre Poli-seal is indeed value for money.

DG stands for Duragloss. It's a brand for car detailing products....

I am using optimum car wax from maddriver. Supposedly able to last 5 months between each waxing but I wax every 3 months.

I love to try out shampoo. Personally I find that Duragloss 902 shampoo , Meguiars Gold Class were good.

Sorry to say that I don't really fancy autoglym stuffs.
