I know there was a previous poll on this but it was a little outdated so i thought i would start a new one

Personally, I love the look of Supreme Shine Protectant, but before SSP came out i used a combination of M40 and Natural Shine

My wife and I like everything about #40. From the durability, to the smell, how long the product lasts. also the sheen it gives everything.

Supreme Shine, with Natural Shine a close second. Those are the only Meguiar's protectants I have tried so far. :D

Voted for M40, it my favorite from Megs line. It cleans and conditions in one step, and doesn't leave greasy and sticky residue, or too much gloss...
another favorite is 1z Einszett Cockpit premium. Cleans and protects, and leaves absolutely NO GLOSS...

I like Natural Shine. It has a very classy slight sheen, not glossy and garish.

I used to use Hyper Dressing, but after trying M40, I'm sticking with it. M40 all the time.

What, no votes for Armor All? :lolol:

JK, I like Supreme Shine the best, but M40 and Natural Shine are nice too.

I actually LOL'd when you mentioned Harmor All :chuckle1.

I'm a big fan of Hyper Dressing 4:1, but have yet to try M40. Will be adding a gallon to my list of supplies when I stop by the PBE to try it out :xyxthumbs. I hear good things...!

I used to use Armor All. Then I switched to Supreme Shine and I was like, Wow, this is so much better! No artificial shine, and it doesn't turn my dash into a dust magnet. Needless to say, I have since given my Armor All protectant away. :dp:

Hmmm… it's hard to pick a favorite.
I like using a little of ALL. M40 on rubber mats and sills (slipperyness), QID or NSP on dashes, QID on pedals, m40, SSP, or NSP on the rest of the panels.

I can't find any gold class or NXT protectant.

Natural Shine. Nice smell, not greasy and not too glossy. It makes the vinyl look like it looked when the car left the factory.

M40. Don't like the smell, but love the way it works.

I tried that product once and I didnt really like it. It left the surface fairly greasy and oily even after multiple wipedowns with a cotton towel. Wasnt a fan of that cheap shine either.

It made me appreciate Meguiars dressings, my two main interior protectants are Natural Shine and M40 Vinyl/Rubber Cleaner Conditioner.

I was sold on M40 when I read this review:

Meguiar's #40 Vinyl & Rubber Cleaner Conditioner Review! (http://meguiarsonline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=21686&highlight=m40+review)

I wonder if the vinyl dashboards that are made today really need any UV protection. Just a question.

I personally prefer a matte, factory-new look on my interior vinyl and plastic; hence the product I prefer in Meguiar's line is Quik Interior Detailer. I switch off between QID and 1Z Cockpit Premium, depending on my mood. I think I may prefer the latter, but QID is a close second and is more economical. If I need a bit more cleaning power, then I use M40. I do not want more gloss or sheen than what I get from M40.

Bought Natyral Shine for the first time and used it this weekend. Product looks to be good but the spray bottle *****. I got spitting and streaming instead of spraying. Had to squirt it into rag then apply.
For me, this product won't be bought again because of poorly designed spray mechanism. It's the little things that seperate good from great.

The sprayer head and bottle design have been re designed for 2010.

Even though we still use #40 the majority of the time.. I am becoming a big fan of ultimate protectorant. It seems that it is very long lasting on interiors.

I only have three, M40, Natural Shine, and Ultimate Protectant (which I just got). I first did my interior vinyl with M40 a few weeks ago and it still looks like the day I applied it. The smell didn't bother me, but... I tried Natural Shine, and I love the smell! And it did a good job too. So far, I have only used UP on the black metal pillars on my exterior, and it works fantastic.

And then yesterday I used M40 with one of these http://www.autodetailingsolutions.net/tda3.html on my tires, and wow! Light cleaning and so easy to apply! (Now that it is motorcycle season, I have a semi-garage queen so the wheels were only slightly soiled). But it may not hold up to water as well as the Endurance High-Gloss Tire Gel. I'll have to see.

M40 smells is AWFUL! I like the shine and the non greasy but cant stand the smell. They need to make it smell like NXT, or just a clean smell. Not cheap leather.

I could not live without Supreme Shine - I love the way it works and it smells so good. I could not find it this summer because they were always out of it and was about to order on line when finally they got some in at Auto Zone. I also bought it in the wipes just so I would have extras for the next time I ran out!

Usually I prefer to use Supreme Shine Protect and NXT Generation Tech Protect. Both are really nice and great performance. Proper one and give best result, both are my favourite and mostly prefer to use these first.

I'm an M40 fan as well, but usually for the exterior. Hyper Dressing wins for me inside the car.

I like Megs WBD and QID from the Detailers Line for interiors.

I like the totally natural look like it came from the factory, I use Meguiar's Interior QD.
I have convonced all but 1 of my detaling clients to go with the natural look.. I still have 1 client who insists on a shiny dashboard and door panels.. for her car, I use the NXT protectant.
