      Looks like a new release by Meguiar's: https://www.meguiars.com/automotive/...-g190526-26-oz



      Thoughts? Is this a genuine alternative to the current ceramic coatings that's currently out there?

      I had just used my the last of my Sonax Spray and Seal when I first saw the ads for this about a month ago. I've been a Meg's fanboi for a long time and am excited to try this out and see how it does.

      IMO this one is worth looking at too. Perhaps a better product in the end. I'll be testing both out in the spring when the weather breaks.

      I ordered 2 bottles of the Meg's HCW, was able to find them for $14.99 w/ free shipping. Tracking says they will be here this afternoon so maybe be able to give it a try on sunday. Possibly on friday and then drive the car to go snowboarding saturday on the dirty sandy and slushy road to see how it goes.

      I put 2 coats of Mothers CMX Ceramic spray on our X1 a few weeks ago. I had already put a couple of layers of hi temp paste wax on and then followed with Mothers CMX spray. So far so good.

      The pollen here is terrible right now. I washed the car in my driveway Tuesday and as I was detailing the inside I looked out the windshield. There was a nice, thin layer of green covering the hood. Lots of pollen! It does seem to stick less to my car than others I've noticed. Maybe it is me. I don't know.

      I do know the water really runs off fast and things don't stick, so I'm happy with the Ceramic spray.

      Used the Meg's on my new Pilot a month or so ago. I was super lazy and didn't clay bar like I should have...just used the recommended Meg's wash with the "micro polishers" or whatever before hand. Application method I used was sorta drying a panel, spraying the product on, then wiping it around with a damp micro fiber towel for total panel application, and hosing it off. End result was great. Felt about as smooth as the 2.5 year old cQuartz sealer we have on our Golf. Bugs tend to clean off a bit easier so far.

      Only issue is streaking on windows, but it wasn't terrible.

      Used this stuff the other day. Followed the recommended first application method of spraying on wet and drying with a towel. It rained all day yesterday and the car still looks great. Looking forward to wiping it down again and using a follow up coat with the spray on and hose off method for continued results.

      it's at the top of my top automotive 'to do' list. stuff sounds great.
      a friend of mine tried it on his 2017 Toyota wagon a couple of weeks ago and raved about it--said it kicks a**


      5/24--finally got to try the wax.it works great! i did have a bit of trouble with the wax streaking (my car wasn't totally 'cool to the touch' as the instructions suggest)
      went out and buffed it a little bit more today and to get the glass cleaned up better. overall, very pleased with the results.

      Keep in mind you'll still need to wipe it down afterwards when drying as it will tend to streak. Decent product, nothing earth shattering but FWIW, just remember to wipe down after.

      Ok guys, I am still a fan of HCW but I've moved on to Turtle Wax Seal N' Shine and recommend it to you all immediately! It's much easier to apply (spray and wipe on a dry car), it's way more durable (see video below) and most impressively it's $6.97 per bottle at walmart! At this price point it almost defies logic but this stuff really is that good! Just watch the video.
