Which QD do you like and why?

I like the aerosol Quik Detailer better because I feel that the aerosol has better mist, it is smaller and more controlled, so it works in small areas...

just my .02 cents

The QD aerosol would definately be better for car shows, but for claying and the normal stuff, QD spray would be better. My vote: both have their own purpose.

:iagree: Both have thier specific uses. But right now I have about 3 full bottles( reg size, 1 economy size) so the spray is my QD of choice.

I chose the spray because it seems to simply spray in a larger "burst" and thus lasts longer. Both are great though and have their respective times for use.

it just looks like i get more for my money with the spray.... Let’s do the math,

Quik Detailer pricing and packaging per Meg’s main website (http://www.meguiars.com/estore/product_list.cfm?sectionname=Consumer%20(Meguiar's%20Brand)>Auto%20Paint%20Care>Car%20Maintenance&sectionID=11601) (as of 12/12/07):

pkg, price, volume, $/oz

18oz aerosol, $5.99, 18oz, $0.33/oz

16oz trigger, $6.49, 16oz, $0.41/oz

32oz trigger, $8.69, 32oz, $0.27/oz


The aerosol actually gives you more QD for your money than the smaller trigger spray. The larger trigger sprayer is better still.

I used to steer clear of aerosols because most aerosol products are sold in smaller sizes at higher prices than their trigger spray counterparts. Meguiar’s has turned that upside-down. I’ll certainly be buying aerosol QD again (mostly for convenient “toss in the car and take it with me” use, they don’t leak and are easy to use, for bulk use in the garage I buy #34 in gallons).

I dont like the aerosol b/c its in a metal can. If you drop a plastic bottle or bump the side of the vehicle with a plastic bottle it doesnt matter. Do that with a metal can and youve got a really bad day.

That’s a good point.

I find that with my natural grip on the can I only have to worry about the bottom edge of the can touching the car. A wrap of duct tape can solve that.

I've never used the Aerosol version. Does it work any differently?

Works the same. Spray pattern’s a little different, that’s all.

I like spray for claying and quick dusting after washing before waxing etc. But...may try the aerosol can....I use Hot Shine aerosol as it has the smaller spray pattern so I don't have to clean the wheels up after the spray and it's faster than putting it on an applicator.

That math is a bit faulty because ozs in an aerosol can include the propellant. So without knowing how many oz of propellant there is in a can....well....can't do the math.

Spray- I believe I have more control over how much and where I spray it.

Does not take much anyway plus no pressure gas required (greener?):idea:

Aersol is bad for the environment. Go spray, better control of where you want the product.

I perfer all. A typical detail, I use both.

Aerosol. Jambs, priming, initial soak for clay, and wax removal.

Smaller Bottle. Tight spots, adding QD while claying, vertical surfaces, taking up less space.

Large QD bottle. Refilling small spray bottle.

Same here.

Seems to me that the aerosol version would be more difficult to control on a windy day. The stuff might blow all over the place.

Trigger spray for me.
