    There's a dealer locator on their site, too.

    How big car have you? :P I used half of the bottle claying my car (Golf Mk4 estate). However i kinda have the same issue as you. Not easy to get hold of the Quik detailer. So i used Mothers instant detailer instead (which you can get hold of more easy here). Sure you can get it at Meguiars Sweden, but shipping costs $15 as lowest, so you kinda pay more for shipping then the product itself.

    I really dont see why they charge shipping like that. Most of the Meguiars products you can buy in every hardware store

    My Nissan Silvia is only a small 2 door coupe, my problem is that I got over every square inch haha! I can source the QD here but just like you, its not that straight forward.. I still have a tiny bit of claying to do and am looking for an alternative as we speak, Im seriously considering using a little GC wash in a spray bottle with water, Id love to grab some QD but I only have the roof and rear bar to go.. :/

    If you can, grab some QD. Whats left you can have as a "emergency kitt" for bird poo, fingerprints etc It always amuse me watching a Meguiars video, when they quickly use a new MF towel, or some product since their source of it is endless. Me myself and i, have to spend tons of money for the same products and treat them as gold. Would be really funny for a American to come to Sweden to see the small range and the prices here

    And yea, you can use Schampoo and water as clay lube, but it won't be the same as our precious QD

    Sounds like using too much probably... But like was mentioned, I just clay while the car is wet to use less...

    Probably similar to me mixing 50/50 for a dry car. I just might try your method next clay event.
