    Thanks.
    There shouldn't be any difference between the two with regards to longevity. We have some pretty unique chemistry in Ultimate Wax and that's a large part of why the paste and liquid vary like they do here; the ingredients that make a paste a paste do change things enough that you'll notice it when applying or removing the two products, but that's about it.

    Re: Meguiars Ultimate Paste Wax

    Will the paste wax version stain trim (white residue), while the liquid vesion will not? I have read on the web that this is the case, however, the product description on Meguiar's website states in the description for both the liquid and the paste version that it "...won't leave a white residue on trim & plastic."

    The paste version can stain trim, yes. It's really the ingredients that make it a paste that are to blame. Still, if you're paying attention when applying and you get a bit on a trim piece, wiping it off immediately should resolve any problems.

    I finally bit the bullet and coughed up the $30 and bought UPW and used it for the first time, yesterday. I was a little skeptical and still patchi g up the burn hole in my wallet, but... the difference is incredible.

    As I'm writing this, it's currently raining, and I'm actually looking forward to seeing my car in the rain just to see how the UPW works.

    Great product! Highly recommend.

    Re: Meguiars Ultimate Paste Wax

    Realizing I'm bumping an older thread, I wanted to add that I tried UPW about three weeks ago and had amazing results.

    It's my first car in a long time, a used, nearly 10 year old Hyundai with dark blue metallic paint. The comments I've gotten include "that's the shiniest Hyundai I've ever seen."

    Worth noting, I also put a layer of Gold Class Carnauba Paste over the UPW, however, being 3-weeks later, I suspect that's long gone, leaving just the Ultimate.

    I'd be happy to post photos of the result, and a video I took in the rain yesterday, but I'm not sure forum rules permit that. (mods? Is it OK to show off?)

    - Liquid won't stain trim, whereas the paste might;
    - One is a paste and one is a liquid;
    - That's about it!

We can go out for a drive without her makeup and she looks fine. If I want to take the black one out, it is three or four hours in the "bathroom" to get ready.
