    510GUY, if you're looking for an excellent all around product to clean up the Miata on extended road trips, then UWWA is exactly what you want. For those road trips it could replace the NXT Car Wash Soap, UQD and UQW combined. You wouldn't even have to do the water rinse and dry first, just use UWWA with several microfiber towels and you're done. If the car is extremely dirty and you really feel the need to do a water rinse first, we'd suggest swinging by a coin-op wash, give it a quick once over, and then while it's still wet use the UWWA to really clean the finish and leave a nice bit of synthetic protection behind.

    I don't imagine I could get away with calling that the "Iowa Method". Shawn T might object.

    Due to some recent time constraints, I've done this a few times and I love UWWA!!! On a black car this stuff is great!

    When will UWWA be available in a gallon size? Pretty sure there will be demand for it....

    I picked some of this up a week or so ago. I tried it on a section of my blue pontiac and it works very very well! And not to mention, the SMELL is spectacular! The stuff smells like raspberries. Very very pleasant smell, highly recommend it!

    Will this product cause swirls or scratches when all you have to do is spray and wipe a dirty car/SUV??

    It will not cause problems as long as you use it the way it is intended. Just use it heavier than you would a QD.

    When used properly (see Ultimate Wash & Wax Anywhere - Tips & Tricks for more on this) it won't scratch the paint. Of course, there are limits to anything, and just as when you bucket wash an extremely dirty car you hose it with some pressure to knock off the really heavy stuff, you need use that same kind of common sense with UWWA.

    For example, let's say you live in a northern climate where the roads are salted in winter and your car is covered in heavy road salt. It's not practical to hose down the car at home (it's actually common for outside water to be turned off to prevent pipes from breaking) or you live in an apartment complex and simply don't have access to a hose and bucket. The automatic car wash looks like a swirling torture chamber, and the brush at the coin op wash isn't much better (and may actually be worse). So, you go to the coin op place and pressure wash the car, knocking off all the heavy stuff. But the car still looks far from clean. That's fine - it's the perfect time to finish the job with a bottle of UWWA, and finish it safely.

    Or you live in an area where it rains a lot and you don't have access to a hose. Even after a few hundred miles of driving in the rain you can safely clean the car with UWWA, something you wouldn't even consider with a QD spray. Personally, I drove my weekend toy home from Las Vegas in a downpour following SEMA last November. From the LV Convention Center to my house is almost exactly 275 miles, and you can imagine how dirty my car was. But UWWA, and several microfiber towels, safely cleaned the car in no time.

    Re: Ultimate Wash & Wax Anywhere

    Can i use this if my car is wet from watering off chunks of dirt from my car?
    i have been waiting for my car to dry all the time and its "wasting my time"... and yes i also purchased the water magnet but i dont want to risk scratching my new paint w/o the UWWA.
