    Meguiars Ultimate Paste Wax durability review

    Around April, I applied Meguiars cleaner wax then immediately topped the paint with two coats of UPW on my sister 2012 focus. She was going on a trip and wanted her car Protected, didn't have much time and gave this combo a try. The car stayed 70percent outside and 30percent in a garage. And being in Arizona, the paint gets hammered. It's been six months and the paint still beads, still feels slick and using the blower still removes 97% of the water. I believe its an under rated product as I'm amazed with the durability. You also can't beat the smell!!

    How is that UPW as far as trim staining and general residue? Aside from #16 and #26, I've found all the Meg's LSP's to be a PITA in that regard (other than D301).

    UPW is a great wax for light colors. Most of us look further as the Ult wax line has a record of streaking on dark colors.

    I thought NXT has cleaners in it as well (hence the staining effect)? And if I am right then whatever wax you put on with the first step, will be severely disrupted if not removed when you perform the second step.

    -I've had similar results using the 'Liquid version'...with more of the sheeting-action
    that these types of synthetic-wax renditions from Meguiar's are noted for.

    That's just me, I suppose.)

    -I totally agree with your saying that:

    I put ultimate on august and still going on strong. It does not stain trim and is an easy on easy off application. I really like it

    My wife has a pearl white Subaru and the UPW makes the car 'glow' for lack of a better word, looks awesome on that car. I like the product a lot however have had the streaking on my car (black) and for that reason don't use it other than on her car. My dad used it on his silver G6 for a while and loves the glow. He has been using Fuzion but is planning on going back to UPW once his Fuzion is tapped he liked it so much.
