Maguairs Gold Class Shampoo and conditioner .

This stuff just simply ROCKS .
When used with a sheepskin mitt , the ease of washing , to the quality of the finish blew me away .
I already use their wax , but never thought washing liquid would vary that much. How wrong I was.

Thoroughly recommend this stuff .

I have several of their products. I did their precription on the website. Its great. I basically wash the car then apply scratchX (for swirl marks...grrr), apply a polish then every couple of months apply a wax (carbunda, spelling??). Falkeen, the wax i use comes in a bottle and you basically use the applicator pads to apply it to the car and then use a terry cloth to wipe it off, i recommend them as well.

Truly the deepest kiss one can feel, and the one most sought after, is the one you will not survive....

Same with the gold class liquid clear coat wax. Applicator pad , let it dry , then a terry towel to wipe off.
This washing liquid doesn't remove the wax layer either I noticed.

This is my typical wash senario;

1st spray two at a time brembos with non acid wheel cleaner and jet sray clean.
Rinse car with non jet water spray
Warm wash in shade with Gold Class wash
dry with chammois
use mini compressor to dry rims and around lights
Polish with deep chrystal polish
then add gold class clear coat wax.
Finally add tyre shine with brush so as not to get on rims or brakes.
I totally love all the Meguirs products except their tyre shine or high gloss, because it builds up a residue on the tyre and is very difficult to clean off it builds up all greasy. i know that they design this product not to wash off in the rain BUT 99.99% of all people who use their products will wash their pride and joy as soon as the rain stops anyway.my mates always ask why my tyres have such a high gloss compaired to theirs and thats why because the meguirs one collects dirt easy.

I have just bought their tyre shine and I used it for the 1st time on the weekend, so I suspose I'm about to find out what you are talking about BOSSGT,oh well as long as they look good which so far I think they do, maybe that will change when I wash it or it rain's.

I have to agree the most accessible quality products. Although a little pricey i like them. I have an ocillating rotating buffer with terry towling applicators and its just a breeze to use. Which is great with such a lot of sheet metal on the falcon. I use the tyre shine and i like it. I figure that im going to re do the tyres everytime i wash it so it doesnt worry me. I use the swirl remover prep then gold class wax.

after washing and drying when the car needs polishing and waxing i will use paint cleaner to remove the old wax and minor scratches then polish it and then wax it
i use only meguairs products on the car and i have no complaints about any of there products except that they smell good and must be kept out of reach of small kids

I used to have an open mind but my brains kept falling out

I have been using the Meguairs solf gel wash (pink in colour) for many years. It is around 10 bucks a bottle and after trying many different brands, this stuff is magic. Everything else I have used to date would not be half as good.

I have seen the new Gold Class and have been tempted to buy a bottle. I might just have to give it a try this weekend. I might have to give the Gold Class wax a go as well. I have been using the wet look for ages.
