    I have seen no pics of people using S100 over NXT. I personally wouldn't do it unless NXT is proven to not last 3 months. That way you could have NXT as a final layer for shine, with S100 for durability. If you're looking for that route, I would use a sealant under NXT.

    On a side note, where do you live in the Capital Region? I live in Rochester, but visit my girlfriend often out there. She goes to UAlbany.

    Go ahead and try it. I used some Meguiars #16 (Professional Paste Wax with a look very similar to S100....maybe even a little wetter looking) over NXT on my own car and a metallic black BMW 745Li. Added depth and wetness to NXT.

    I had, and preferred the look of NXT by itself. NXT has a more reflective look and shine to it and S100 seemed to make it less clear.

    Thanks for the feedback! :bigthumb:
    It is greatly appreciated.

    When it gets warm enuff to claybar I'm probably just going to do SFP and then some S100.
    actually I should throw some Klasse in there too eh...

    I might still decide to stick with NXT though, I don't know...
    Or I might go back to Zaino. :big grin:

    It really depends on what type of shine you want. If you just want reflection, and shimmer, stick with just the NXT. But like Scott said, if you want a wetter look with more depth, top it with a true carnuba wax.

    Myself, i think it looks better with a "wetter" look to it.

    Just my 2¢

    You can also look into the Wolfgang line or Poorboys too. More of a carnauba look with sealant durability (both are reviewed in the product review sticky).

    RedWRX, like Buck-O and Scottwax :)bowdown: ) have said, you have to decide what kind of shine you prefer. NXT imo doesn't have the sharp shine like Zaino, but has enough sparkling shine to be eye catching (I have a lapis blue Mazda6, which is a medium blue color with very fine metallic flakes). It also darkens my paint and brings out such wetness and warm glow like a carnauba wax. It just felt like the s100 'muted' the sparkles even though it is still very reflective. I also like the swirl hiding ability of the NXT.
