A stiff brisle brush should get most of it off.

Convertible top cleaner (autosol) and a terry cloth towel should do the trick...after you clean it...wipe with a damp towel..

Peanut butter, it works. take some and put it on the wax that got stuck on your plastic/rubber/crap, let it sit for 5-30 seconds
then wash it off.

BTW, stop using turtle wax.

Try

Raggtopp or 303
It will remove the wax and protect it at the same time.
Yeah as for the turtle wax....on a BMW/ I would recommend something else like P21S or Pinnicle. For a "sealant" Klasse All In On and their Sealant Glaze is the way to go!

jon,

Do you run a detailing shop/ website?

If so, whats your opinion on meguiars products? specifically thier NXT line of wax. I personally like it, but i'm wondering if theres something better out there?

No I dont run a detailing shop but I am a "Staff" member of Autopia.
As for NXT, I havent tried it yet.(Right now I am trying 1Z Glanz wax vs. Klasse on my car). I have heard great things about NXT. I found that I use what you like until I find something better.(I have gone from "Rain Dance, to Rally Wax, to SIminize, to Turtle Wax, to Nu Finish, to"Mothers", to Gold class, to P21S to Klasse, to Wolfgand, to Blitz, to #16, to Soverian, and now to 1Z Glanz wax).
If you want to try something differant than NXT, try 1Z Glanz or Klasse. They to are sealants.
