    :bowdown:

    on Velocity Red 2006 Mazda 3. It didn't need any correction (it's my car, and I just did a full detail a month ago)

    - Opti-seal (holy cow, this was easier than I expected to use. No streaking, no buffing. Top notch shine and beading)
    - Car wax (didn't use yet, but will use to refresh the paint every other week)
    - Protectant Plus (For interior...PERFECT amount of shine i.e. just a little, pleasant smell, easy to work with, not too greasy, doesn't attract dust)

    I used Black WOW too (not an Optimum product) and that was the tits as well.

    Sorry no pics...cloudy and raining today :(. Just wanted to give a big thumbs up to you folks who recommend the Optimum products :bigthumb:

    If you haven't tried it let, ONR is amazing and the new version makes the paint even slicker and glossier. :)

    No surprise you like Opti-Seal and Protectant Plus, I pretty much use both on nearly every detail I do. Both the Murano and M35 I did today got OS on the paint and OPP on the vinyl. I normally use the spray wax on my own car, looks amazing on metallic grey. I think you will be really pleased with the look on your red car. Very nice wetness and depth and the slickness is :eek3:

    Good, I'll have to apply the spray wax in a couple weeks to test out the slickness... that's one thing I absolutely LOVE about S100, but if I can find something that's as reflective and slick to go over the OS that lasts more than a couple weeks, I'll be happy. Hell I still might keep S100 as a topper wax...

    Good stuff, I finally got to meet and talk with Dr G from Optimum a few times this past weekend at DF. What a great guy....really knows his stuff and fun to talk to as well.

    More gloss, more slickness and a new scent.

    Matt-Dave is a really good guy, been to his plant a couple times since he is in Memphis and it is on my way to see my kids in Kentucky. He definitely knows his shit.

    Scott,

    Has the new ONR made available to purchase yet? I'm running low on the old ONR. Hate to get another gallon of the old stuff while the new version is coming out.

    Yesterday I washed with ONR, clayed, and then waxed with OCW yesterday. I noticed that the wax left a haze on some parts of the car (mainly the hood and trunk) that would not wipe off with a clean towel. Did I use too much?

    Probably. A little spritz of ONR at QD strength will take it off.
