Sounds like a Turtle Wax ICE product. I don't know for sure, but that's just my guess. Got a pic?

I wouldn't fall for those gimmicky car wash soaps. If you want acrylic protection, you should get something like KAIO, followed up with some KSG and can be left it as or, followed up with another LSP. I usually follow it up with #26 and maintain it with some UQD. I also heard good things about ZAIO. It buffs off easier too.

that carwash/ protectant/polish/wax/polymer.....whatever you want to add after the word carwash doesn't work period. dont be lazy and get your car polished and waxed.

KAIO and ZAIO (klass all-in-one & zaino all-in-one respectively - 2 different companies) are 2 great products if you want polymer protection. BUT you will have to actually apply and remove by hand (or machine if you have one).

I'm still going to keep the car waxed with the new Mequiars NXT.

NXT is good, but it doesn't have much depth or as much durability. Also, the cleaners in it inhibit you from layering it on itself (or anything else). I'd classify NXT more like a sealant, rather than a wax IMO. Haven't had a hands on experience with NXT 2.0 though. Maybe that one is a lot better.

I second what MYSTERYAN said about NXT. But it's okay stuff for those just looking to grab something off the shelf at the local Pep Boys or walmart . Leave the poorboys, zainos, Klass, pinnacle etc etc for the real detail enthusiasts.

Default Polymer car wash

I tried this at the Autobahn Car Wash in St Charles, MO. I was STUNNED at how the water just disappeared, no wiping at all, the water was just gone, no spotting either, windshield was totally clear. Being a person who likes a clean shiny car, I recommend it. I read that it will last about 30 days.
