    IMO thats about as good as you will get from the places you mentioned. Try the Megs NXT tech wax 2.0-heard good things about it from pro detailers even. They compared the results to a $80 botique wax and there wasn't a big noticable difference. As far as advice- get yourself some quality microfiber towels for drying and waxing your car-to prevent swirls. I use Cobra microfiber towels for removing wax and Cobra waffle weave microfiber towels for drying after a wash. You should also use a microfiber wash mitt and the two bucket system-to further reduce swirls.Hope that helps some- Good luck!

    Did they compare durability?

    i've been using the new black magic products on my car ever since i got a sampler kit in the mail... it's amazing and for it's price... i've been using it well i got the sampler before i even saw it at any autoparts stores around here... so before u could buy it i've been using it and i have noticed 2 things my paint looks better and the wax is alot more durable than alot of other products i've used from companies like meguiars, turtle wax, zymol, and eagle one

    Wasn't meant to be mean, but those ICE products are at the top of my list for the worst products.

    For $15, I would have picked up some good ol' Meguiars.

    Johnson's baby shampoo is what I wash my car with ...Zero PH means it wont strip your wax.

    As for an off the shelf wax, 3 products come to mind, Maguires# 26 high tech paste wax, Maguires Medallion liquid, or Turtle Wax emerald series.

    IF, and thats not a likely IF, I was going to buy something OTC to put on my paint, it would be Meguiars products.

    I second that. I work at Advance, and while there's not much that's awful, there's very little that's actually good. The meguire's mirror shine products are great, and I too am having good luck with their NXT 2.0.

    Mother's products are fine, but all that I've used have been trumped by Meguire's.
