    i was at carquest and "ordered" some meguiars 16, but then when i went back, they told me that the store that they were going to get it from was actually out of it and so i called meguiars and they recommended that i just use nxt. so that's what i did. i'm happy with the results, but my fiance isn't happy with the time that i put into this car...btw, i just noticed that it's so "shiny" that it even reflected the blue in the sky. wow...

    Using the NXT and S100 is a duplication of effort, IMO.

    Looks good, any whole car shots? :x:

    If you use NXT and S100, use the NXT first since it has very light chemical cleaners to prep the paint so it bonds better.

    BTW, of course Meguiars is going to push NXT, they are rolling it out now. If you want some #16 though (very similar to S100 but more durable), order it quick since they may have to phase it out due to new EPA VOC regulations. :sad2:

    ya i know, but i was so mad cause stupid carquest didn't have #16 like they had promised so i just went and got some nxt instead and did my car over again since i was in the mood anyway. but honestly, there is a much better shine off of my car now than my bro's. he has the exact same car as me, but just in a coupe, same color, same age, blah blah blah, and he just did his with just s100, and mine looks a lot better. i'll try to get some clean shots, but it's raining just enough to piss me off today...

    #26 is a good wax, maybe a bit more depth than #16. I like the super wet look of #16 more.

    #16 is an old product, been around (with some tweaking) for more than 50 years. Like all companies, Meguiars emphasises their new product line. #16 looks very similar to S100/P21S but lasts a lot longer.
