I've been out of the loop for awhile, are there any new products worth buying?

    I haven't really bought anything since Opti-Seal came out. My detailing supplies are somewhat varied and currently consist of:

    Poorboy's SSR1, Professional Polish, Trim Restorer, Black Hole, White Diamond, and Soap
    Zaino Z5 Pro, ZFX, tire gloss, leather cleaner and conditioner
    Optimum Hypercompound and Opti-Seal
    Sonus SFX1, SFX2, Paintwork Cleanser, Swirlbuster
    Collinite 476S
    Pinnacle Souveran paste wax

    So have there been any new products in the last year or so that would be an upgrade over what I currently use?

    Meguiar's 105, 205, and their Ultimate Quik Wax.

    2nd the #105/205 recommendation. Never used Quik Wax so I can't comment on it. If you aren't using ONR to wash your cars, you are missing out.

    I usually use ONR with the exception of the filthiest of cars. Love it!

    I've still got almost full bottles of Optimum Polish and Compund, the original formulas. Is it really that big of a difference between the Optimum stuff and the new Meguiars products? I really like my Optimum, it never lets me down, but some times it seems, even with the compound, that I have to do MANY passes to get the desired result. Would switching to 105 really make a huge difference.

    And FYI, I'm using a PC with LC 5.5" CCS pads, every flavor they make.
