i love the NXT. it gives a deep dark shine on my paint. it also makes my blue flakes really pop out.

I went with #26, I love both and use both, but I've used #26 longer and have more of an over all comfort level of what to expect from it, so if I could only have one its #26, other wise its both.:D

#26. Easy on, really easy off. Gives a real clear finish.

I can't decide! I use them both! HAHA I do seem to get a little long protection out of the NXt but that may be just in my head.

Well it looks like NXT is the top dog. I'll have to pick up some of the paste wax.

Haven't used the NXT yet. picked up a can of the 26 the other day, SCHWEEET!! :xyxthumbs

I'll be picking up a can of the NXT this week, look forward to using it since i've read nothing but positive reviews about it.

I switched back to the NXT this past weekend and I was EXTREMELY pleased. This weekend I'm gonna apply some NXT spray wax to really give a boost.

Call me old school, but I have always liked the look of 26, more reflective IMO than NXT. I have topped NXT with 26 with great results on my black car.

NXT because it actually holds up to Phoenix in July.

I like the NXT. I used to use the Gold Class, and I think the NXT gives a better shine.

FYI the comparison is between NXT and M026 from the Professional line. Gold Class is a third and very different wax product. :xyxthumbs Lots of good wax products in the Meguiar's line, aren't there?!

I know. I was just stating that I use NXT, and commenting on it's quality.

I prefer the NXT for it's ease of use and high quality output!

But I prefer Hi-Tech wax on my old 1992 Mitsubishi Galant VR-4. It makes the black metallic color come out better. It might not last as long, but it sure is nice.

Both (in my opinion) serve differently, but make me happy. :)

I loved the Gold Class but then used NXT on my black F250 and black car trailer and it just makes it sooooo smooth looking. So I would say I love them both but NXT is Great!

I love nxt Past wax... It's easy to remove and just rocks on darker colored cars. I've only tried the 26 paste once... managed to sucker my neighbor into letting me borrow a tin he had lying around. 26 was also good just a bit more troublesome to remove in my case.

What's the difference between the paste and liquid version of NXT wax ? (other than the obvious difference :rolleyes: )...I must say I've tried both and to me, the liquid goes on easy and comes off easier in my opinion.

can you put both.

i mean they're both solid waxes.

as for now, i feel the NXT is a little deeper. but who knows i'm still a rookie by large.

Wow.. I put my vote in for #26... this thread has me wanting to get a can of NXT! I have the liquid right now but I really like applying and removing #26.. never had any issues. Something about using pastes just feels right.. if that makes sense. Not that theres anything wrong with the liquids.

I didnt expect a almost 2:1 in favor of the NXT, though. :cool:

NXT paste topped with #26 paste is simply a killer combo!!! NXT is reflective, #26 is wet. Together, they are jaw droppers. And both are excellent products one-by-one too.

I bought NXT and tried it afew times and I really didn't care for it. It was alright but not great. After I "clean" the paint, I apply 2 coats of #26 and I love it. Awsome reflection and smooooth.

26 for its easeof use, and imho the gloss it gives. I feel you can't beat it.

Ravi, you will be pleasantly surprised when you try M26. It's nothing like NXT 2.0. Both are good, but the look is entirely different. It's not just a subtle difference either, it's quite noticeable.

I plan on prepping my black GMC for winter this week. I'll try to get some photo's showing the difference between NXT 2.0 and M26. I'll do the entire truck in NXT 2.0 and then I'll try to get some 50/50 shots as I apply M26 on top.

Of course this will be time, sunlight and weather permitting. It would be much easier to do this in a controlled shop environment, but I'll do my best. Hopefully it works out and I can capture the differences with photos to share with you guys.

I didn't vote since I haven't tried the NXT but I sure like the #26 hi tech yellow wax. Maybe I should try NXT topped w #26 as suggested but I thought I had read that NXT was kind of tricky to use on black. ??

Looking at your avatar, I noticed that I used it on same paint - Ford black - and it was very easy to apply. I did it inside the garage though, and most complaints I've heard from people were applying outside, maybe too hot or too much sun. So I think if you apply it in the shade, when it's not too hot or humid, you should find it fairly easy to buff off. It also is much easier to buff off if you use VERY thin coating...
