Meguires Wax
aka Mequiar's Wax

best auto detailing tips

Doesn't matter if you spell Meguires wax the incorrect way or not, they make some amazing products. (Meguiar's wax is the correct way, but will be using the incorrect spelling for the purpose of this page) Having used many of their products in my auto detailing business from the beginning, I am familiar with their line up of detailing products, and continue to be impressed with new offerings.


Why This Expert Chooses Meguires Wax

Anyone who is a frequent reader of my websites knows first hand I am a big fan of the Meguires line up of products; not because I get a very small commission if you purchase through any of my links, but simply because they work! They also happen to be the actual products I use on a daily basis in my auto detailing business to deliver superior results to my picky and fanatical customers!

Darren's Picks

Below is a list of the (2) Meguires wax products that are a must for every driveway detailer. You could spend hundreds of dollars buying all their products, but these first two are what I consider a must have! They also happen to be two of the specific Meguires products I carry with me and use regularly in my car detailing business.

Meguiar's Ultimate Paste Wax

By combining synthetic polymers and formulating into a paste wax, you get the ultimate in beauty and protection. Perfect for dark colored cars for depth and glossing. Polymer technology creates a durable layer of protection guaranteed to outlast traditional carnauba paste waxes.

Meguiars Ultimate Paste Wax

  • Synthetic blend of ingredients.
  • Can be used in direct sunlight.
  • Wipe on, wipe off; no drying time necessary.
  • No dusting during removal.
  • As easy to use as you will find in a paste wax.
  • One of my top Meguires wax products.

Meguiar's Ultimate Spray Wax

Meguiar's Ultimate Quick Wax is a spray detailer and wax all in one. Use as a stand alone wax after using the clay bar, or to enhance and refresh any wax already on your paints finish. This product is so easy to use and very light in consistency, I actually use as a Quik Detailer; this way I am also getting added wax protection and enhancement each time. Recommended for any dark colored cars after washing for added depth and glossing. Ideal for hot climates, as can be used in direct sunlight on hot paint.

  • Can be used in direct sunlight, on hot paint.
  • No dusting during removal.
  • Will not stain black trim; wax everything on your car.
  • One of my top Meguires wax products.

Darren's Meguires Wax Tips

Like I said previously, these (2) wax products are amongst my favorites from the Meguiar's line-up of products. So much so that I actually use these professionally on any dark colored cars. After using a quality clay bar, I lay a good foundation with the paste wax. I use the Quik Wax as the final step immediately after removing the paste wax, and just before I deliver the final product to my customer. You can use the Quik Wax anytime you have the energy for a quick way to achieve that just waxed look after any of your regular car washings. I recommend these (2) products to anyone looking to keep things ultra simple as a way to achieve superior results without spending a lifetime researching all the car wax reviews out there.


Other Meguires Wax Reviews

I have yet to use a Meguiar's product I didn't like. It may appear as though I am some kind of product spokesperson for Meguiar's; I am not. I simply think they make great products and I like to keep things simple by not burying you with a hundred and one choices! So below are some of the other choices in wax products put out by Meguires.

Meguiar's
NXT Tech Wax 2.0 Paste

best auto wax
  • Yet another excellent Meguires wax.
  • Another hybrid blend of synthetic and natural ingredients.
  • Creates white residue.
  • Some dusting during removal.
  • Will stain black trim.
  • Should be used on cool, shaded surface.
  • Superior hiding and filling qualities as you would expect from a quality paste wax.
  • Superior wet look.

Darren's Remarks:

This Meguires (Meguiar's) wax product is a great product compared to other paste wax choices. While paste wax requires more time and effort than say a liquid or spray wax, this is generally the ticket for ultimate visual enhancement.

Once again, it always comes down to trade off's, and there are certainly trade off's to consider with choosing between pate and spray waxes.

Meguiar's
Gold Class Carnauba Plus
Premium Paste Wax

best auto wax
  • Not as easy as liquid or spray wax
  • Will stain black trim
  • Creates white residue
  • Some dusting- actually quite a lot compared to the spray waxes
  • Natural and synthetic ingredients
  • Should be used on cool, shaded surface
  • Superior hiding and filling qualities over the spray or liquid waxes
  • Superior wet lookmeguires wax

Darren's Remarks:

I would be repeating most of what I said with the NXT Tech Wax from above. This is an update to the older version of the Gold Class paste wax. It is at the top of its game along with many other of the paste wax choices. This newest version is supposed to be made with a "special" blend of carnauba and protecting polymers. When a company has as many wax choices as Meguiar's does, it seems a person must make a choice on packaging rather than true performance since all the Mequiar's paste waxes are going to perform much the same.

Just as you are trying to weigh the pros and cons of spray or liquid waxes, I guess when deciding which paste wax to use, you are going to have to decide based on packaging and marketing.

There are so many terms thrown at us consumers, it is hard to really know what is going, so trying the product first hand and verifying the results is ultimately the only way to know; but this is why I am here!

Meguiar's
Gold Class Paste Wax

best auto wax
  • Will stain black trim.
  • Creates white residue.
  • Some dusting during removal.
  • Natural and synthetic ingredients
  • Should be used on cool, shaded surface.
  • Superior hiding and filling qualities.
  • Superior wet look.

Darren's Remarks:

This is the original version of the Gold Class paste wax. The differences are subtle between this older version and the newer version above, and may actually be the power of suggestion as to any real discernible difference with these Meguires wax products.
