I've tried it and it work good. Nice wet shine and covers some swirls . It goes on easy and wipes off just as easy and does not leave a white power. I will most likely ues up the bottle.
The reason I ask is because I have noticed some real light surface scratches in my paint, which has arisen due to regular washing / scrubbing. Wanted to know if this is the right wax to get some of those hairline scratches out.
Vik... Im extremely meticulous... and anyone who's seen my 20 yr old Supra will attest - Ive had great results with the products Ive used over the years. I always strictly used 3M hand glaze followed up by Gliptone which is a Carnuaba paste wax. That is until I tried Meguire's new NXT creme liquid. The stuff if killer! I know all abt the high end waxes like Zaino Bros, Vanilla Moose, 1000Grand, but I must say the NXT is outstanding. Im sure you will get 100's of opinions here, but I am newly converted, and committed to this product.
Edit: followup to you new post - the 3M Imperial Hand Glaze wld be excellent for helping remove the scratches you mention. I apply it with an orbital buffer. It is a polish which needs to be sealed. Thats where the NXT comes into play. It also helps to fill minor scratches/scours with polymers.
You talking about this Greg. Does it also use "nanotechnology" (ie, fill in the hairline scratches)?

yes exactly - nanotech might be Eagle's fancy buzzword, but the NXT uses the same principle. I saw a big difference in the results of this $18 bottle. Not knocking the Eagle stuff, only speaking from my experience.
I haven't used the new Eagle One stuff, so I won't directly comment on it. Seems like an okay product, but all those scratches and swirls will come back after a few months.
If you really want to get rid of very minor scratches and swirls, you're better off removing them.
is all you really need to get rid of swirls and light scratches.
It's very easy to use, and you can't burn through your paint with it.
Hard to read -- what is it? "3M Finesse-It"? Do you put it on after a wash and regular wax? Or just a wash?
Yes, it's 3M Finesse-It. It gets rid of some serious swirls and scratches (that can't be felt w/ your fingernail). If the swirls/scratches on your paint aren't too bad, you're better of using something else that's less abraisive. Using it will be a little more involved, but the results are really worth it. You really have to use it with the PC orbital buffer, it won't do much by hand. You put it on with the PC after a wash, then you wax.
If you really want to go all out, you should wash, clay, use the 3M Finesse-It, another polish that is a bit more mild (like Meguiars swirl mark remover to get rid of any hazing the 3M Finesse-It may cause) and then wax.
I know this can all seem a bit overwhelming, let me know if you have anymore questions.
Heres how good that wax is. http://ferrarichat.com/forum/showthread.php?t=18512&highlight=wax
I highly recomend it.
Most of the medium to high-end waxes get the job done. It's really the quality of the application that makes the biggest difference IMO.
Please elaborate #98.
Silicone makes dull, black tires nice and shiney, no?
Formulate a version of silicone in the wax = NXT
Not that its a bad product, that's not what I'm saying at all. But there's no substitute for good prep work. But if it's a quick fix you are after(lol, no comment) then NXT is your poison.
Vik have u asked Gus @ Technik1? He might have a good idea about it..
