    Sort of. We've had Quik Wax around for years but it wasn't necessarily the easiest spray wax to use and it would definitely stain trim. As we mention above, this reformulation is a huge leap forward in technology and yields a much nicer user experience - no staining of trim, very easy wipe off, and it works great while drying the car. Obviously you don't want huge amounts of water on the paint when using it this way, so taking the nozzle off the hose and sheeting the water for a final rinse before drying is highly recommended. But then again, we should all be doing this when drying a car anyway.

    So why would you choose this over UQW? Price alone?

    Price is a major consideration for a lot of people and all they want is an easy to use spray wax, nothing more. This gives that segment of our audience a product they can use with ease and still get excellent results. Real Car Crazy people, like detailing forum members, may want something more and UQW addresses that desire for a more robust product.

    Actually, I find it safe and more joy to keep a product family together and use Ultimate's with Ultimate's, Gold's with Gold's. So it's always nice to have the red bottle range complete.

    Thanks for that feedback! You're not the only one who feels this way, which is why we have rounded out the GoldClass line with the D and spray wax under that sub brand too.

    Will definitely have those too. I have more than 40 Meguiar's products already, and more than 100 LSPs

    Can the spray waxes be used instead of your liquid cleaner wax for a daily driver? Will it last as long and provide the same ease of keeping bird droppings, tree sap, bugs and dirt from sticking to paint or damaging it? Or, is the spray wax to be used more as an in-between maintenance? How do I distinguish between the different spray wax products you sell and which is best for silver paint? Thank you.

    As you suspect, the spray waxes really are more of a maintenance type product rather than a substitute for a proper liquid or paste wax. They're great for increasing the gloss and boosting the protection a bit immediately following a full wash & dry between proper wax applications.

    Choosing one over the others will come down to a few personal criteria, really. Cost is one, obviously, while appearance is the other significant difference. But that one gets a bit tricky because we don't all consider the same look to be "the best". All three, Quik Wax, Gold Class Premium Quick Wax, and Ultimate Quik Wax are very easy to use and none will stain trim, plus all three can be used while drying the car - so that's no help! But Ultimate is the only one with hydrophobic polymers that create that really crazy water beading/repelling, Gold Class will do more to darken darker colors, and QW will just give you a bit more gloss and protection. With all the talk about Gold Class darkening darker colors, we've heard from plenty of folks who love it on silver, while others prefer the crisper look of Ultimate. See what we mean about this being a personal choice?

    We can suggest, however, that if you're a fan of our synthetic waxes like Ultimate Wax and NXT Tech Wax 2.0 that you might want to stick with UQW, whereas if you're a big carnauba fan and love Gold Class or M26, Gold Class Premium Quik Wax may be a better choice for you.
