I know, its synthetic, but hear me out. I am an avid fan of meguires gold class, but I happened to be in autozone buying FI cleaner, and the box caught my eye. Because it is synthetic, the formulation allows it hide swirl marks and hairline scratches better. So says the box.

Just put it on, VERY nice finish. Clayed before I did it too. The surfaces doesn't feel as smooth as it does with the goldclass, but the shine is deeper and it did do a much better job hiding the swirls and hairlines (I can still see them, but nowhere near as easy as before).

Comes with an applicator pad and a microfiber towel for $9.95. If it lasts, I'll make it a permanent switch.

How about putting Gold Class over the Nanowax? Best of both worlds.

I don't think organics bond to the synthetics...do they?

Below is a cut/past from the forum FAQ in Detailing titled "The Perfect Shine".
It's not scientific as far as explaining how wax would bond to a synthetic but it does explain what the guy does to get, in his opinion, the perfect shine.

# Once perfectly polished, it’s time to seal the paint and lock in the beauty. Even the best wax is no match against pollution, road salt, and other contamination.

Use a synthetic formula that does not contain abrasives.

You already did all of your polish work in the steps above. Also, if you use an abrasive formula (any formula containing polishes or cleaners), you won't be able to apply more than one coat. I recommend two or three coats. Each coat should be allowed to cure (dry) for at least 12 hours before applying the next coat.
# When you’re finished sealing, you’ll be looking at a beautiful finish. Your first thought will be “hey, the car looks awesome… I must be done”. Not so fast, bucko! You want the "Perfect Shine," right? Okay, then, be patient and wipe your car down with your favorite detailing spray and wait 24 hours. You’re almost there.

2. The final step, the literal icing on the cake, is waxing.

Many will ask “after sealing, why wax?” The answer lies in the richness of color, depth and clarity that only a high quality carnauba wax can bring out on a polished surface. For this job I reach for only two products: P21S Concours or Pinnacle Souveran. Both of these waxes will bring out additional shine, depth and color richness like you're never seen. If you have black, red, dark blue or rich yellow paint, you're in for a real treat.

See the full FAQ here.<--

ahh, thats for sealants though. Anyway, on the drive over from AR to GA Firiday, I happened to be getting gas and saw the hood.

Pretty fuckin nice for a white car that hadn;t been washed since the original post and traveling through thunderstorms on the interstate.

why do people on this board like meguiars gold class so much? its one of the worst waxes you can buy. Even the pro series (which i have and tried using 2 times) sucks compared to other waxes. The only decent wax ive seen meguiars make is the nxt.

From the FAQ....polishing and sealing---synthetics

# Once perfectly polished, it’s time to seal the paint and lock in the beauty. Even the best wax is no match against pollution, road salt, and other contamination.

Use a synthetic formula that does not contain abrasives.

Then apply wax.

Seems to work for him.

Do you have a longevity and appearance update El Presidente? It has been almost 3 months now.

I have been eyeing Eagle's Ads for this "wax", and I trust your opinion...

Hmm. I forgot to update.

I had some trouble with a tree or something and had it pro-detailed in mind july. It was still there then, so I'll say it lasts at least 2 months.

Time for another update?

Did the Nanowax last longer than you last favorite?

I used Mothers the first 2 or 3 times i waxed my car and i saw an ad on tv and decided to give it a try and i will never switch back. The paint is shinier and looks much deeper-it definitely dulls hairline scratches too. I think it lasts longer than Mothers too, water still beads off it much longer into the wax job than it used to. Very pleased with it and i highly recommend it to anyone!

From what I've read, acylic sealants are the equivalent of acrylic polish.
Just different terminology.

I just tried out a bottle of this stuff, its great, it leaves a great finish and it substitutes as a polish & wax, saves me time. very good deal as it comes with pad and cloth (this cloth can be used indefintely!)

Also leaves a good smell, if only for awhile, I've heard it lasts up to about 3 months.

synthetic is defintely the way to go, just like oil, it lasts alot longer than convential waxes, and leaves a very deep and nice shine to boot.
