    How come that M16 Professional Paste Wax isn't available in the USbut its still for sale elsewhere? Whats the reasoning behind that? Does it have a banned in the usa chemical or something like that? Just curious, Also I LOVE washing my car with the quik detailer then going over it with the ultimate quik wax, It really brings back the shine from the proper waxing? Plus the fact that you can use it in the sunlight is real nice and practical. I just washed mine with the new mirror bright soap and hit it with the detailer and wax after and it looks great

    This thread (and indeed many others of its kind) needs to be updated with products added or updated during the last many years since first posted.

    In one of those really bizarre regulatory quirks, we can not legally sell M16 in the USA but we still make here for export to the rest of the world. Weird, right? Here's the thing - regulations change regularly, usually becoming more and more strict with regard to, well, all kinds of things! If we can alter a product formulation to stay within new regs AND keep the same level of performance that the product had under the old regs, we will do that. But if the new regs mean changing the product to the point that the ONLY similarity between the newly altered product and the original is the name, then we'd rather kill it than deliver a totally different product than what users were used to. M16 is a unique situation in that, changing it to meet the new regs (some dozen or more years ago at this point) would have drastically changed it so we killed it. Except we didn't really kill it because, for some bizarre reason, we can still make it. So we only "killed" it domestically but it lives on internationally.

    Yes, we class NXT Tech Wax 2.0 as a "polish wax".
