Ive been using chemical guys speed wipe. My car is ceramic coated and Im a perfectionist. The car is always spotless. The spray smells great like cherry. I dont like that it can leave subtle streaks at times. I would still recommend it though.

What does everyone else use to polish and keep their shine bright? Any recommendations?

My car is full ppf with ceramic coating over it. I use carpro reload diluted 50/50 with distilled water (my car is black full strength would streak). This is what was recommended by the installer and it works great.

I use a Turtle Wax jet black and it works pretty well.

I’ve always had really good luck and results with Pinnacle Crystal Mist detailing spray. It goes on and wipes off fairly easy but can also streak if you use too much (so use sparingly). It leaves the clearcoat super slick, almost like that fresh wax smoothness.

Without a doubt Giriots Speed Shine. I have tried probably 20 different versions and I like it the best. They even carry it Oreilly’s for $12.

Capro ECH2O with a little bit of car pro reload. Works great.

So not a fan of Griots Speed Shine. Was very streaky for me. Takes a lot to get off cleanly. Almost like a quick wax. Just wasnt what I expected

Have always used Meguiars ultimate or their basic quick detailer in the red bottle. It's always been free at car events courtesy of Meguiars giveaways and it works well so never needed to venture outside the brand.

I was told the same but I have also used Griots and it worked well.

Stay away from negative people. They have a problem for every solution.

I just tried a bottle of Topcoat F11. Works great on everything! I was so impressed that I ordered a gallon refill as it will be my go to detailer.

 

The neat thing about it is that it works on every part of your car, paint, plastic and glass. This stuff rocks!

I use Pinnacle Liquid Crystal Waterless Wash Concentrate with Carnauba. I have the Ceramic pro over most of my car, this works very well. I also use a hand pump sprayer with a little water to cut down the pinnacle.

my car has a 3m film around the bumper and hood as well as the hips of the car... is there a way to protect it? I don't want it turning yellow.. Does anybody know the lifespan of a typical 3m film?
