Anyone used this yet ? Just seen the video on Forensic Detailing and it hints at being a decent product.

Are Turtle Wax making a comeback ?

Saw this on FD last night - unbelievably good value if it’s as good as hinted. Turtle Wax seem to have released a couple of belters recently - their spray on paint sealant is also supposed to be a good ‘un.

Fiver delivered using PAYDAY discount code - 750ml of product too :thumbs up:

Nice one BristleDog - for a fiver delivered it would be rude not to. Order placed - should give some good quick winter protection. Strange wizardry, these spray and rinse products, but looking forward to giving it a try and seeing what the durability is like...

They really do seem to be upping their game at the moment, this range which is labelled ICE in the US are really good products. This time its not hype like Beadmaker ( Why did they call it that ? They should have called it Glossmaker). The hybrid wax is simply amazing for the price point, I'm yet to try this one though. If you are getting a bit old like me, waxing or sealing the car the old fashioned way is a bit tiring for me. Hybrid Wax gives the glossy finish, the protection and the beads and only takes 10 minutes max to do the whole car, whats not to like ?

lol this reminds me, driving down the road with the wife a few days back, I was watching all the rain beads rolling around on the bonnet smiling to myself thinking BSD/Maguires mix :) the wife suddenly said "Ermmm shouldn't we have turned left there?", I'd driven past the turning for our road :D:p

I've only just gone and bought some TAC Systems Shinee spray wax - I've got a big problem. Apex Detailing on Youtube have a good review on it this week.

Just gave the TT a wash and quick clay, before using the new Turtlewax D&S... so far looks good, now to see how long it will stand...

Tried this the other week on the wife’s car. Finish is good and car still beading well. Finish is on par with the megs hybrid ceramic wax.
Just a wee warning, don’t get this on the glass. I must have got some overspray or been a bit over zealous with the trigger spray but it seems to leave fine spots on the glass and it took a bit of work to get it off with a glass cleaner.

I used it on my glass and had no issues, do you think because it had dried on it was difficult ? same as if you sprayed it on the paint and left it to dry without buffing off straight away ?

not sure. Sprayed bonnet, worked it in and blasted with pressure washer. Maybe I missed the windscreen but I normally give the whole car a good go over after using products like this.

Just placed an order for a couple of bottles. Nothing wrong with Turtle wax products,used various ones for years. ''Yes'' people will be brand snobs but for the average home detailer nothing wrong with them.

Used this for the first time last weekend - my first time using this type of wet coat product. Very impressed with the results - very slick finish, VERY hydrophobic, very glossy and I had no issues with application (no streaking). I just sprayed evenly around the whole car in one go (used around a quarter of the bottle and reckon I used more than I needed to), then rinsed off straight away with the pressure washer from about 3 ft of distance (so not too close), working top to bottom. Then towel dried.

A piece of proverbial cake - took no time at all and I can see myself reaching for this bottle repeatedly over the winter when you just want to get the car clean and protected as quickly as possible. It was nicely overcast and cool when I applied, which I think helped with the application - don’t think these are products to apply in mid-day June full on sunshine when your panels are hot!

The price at under a fiver a bottle is insanely good value. Good wet coat products shoot out video here to see how it performs vs the alternatives...

It might be just me, but I find the hydrophobic wax sealant easier to use with the same results, just bead off most of the standing water and use it as a drying aid, then give it a buff with a dry micro fibre.

Been using these types of products for years mate...brands like Fireball,Gyeon,Autoglym,Carpro.....all good products,and results can be easily improved ie gloss and beading if you use a good quality quick Detailer on top of this type of coating l havw even used this type of on top of a new coating of fireball nano coat ...not tried this turtle wax version though ....this type of product comes as a spray on rinse off product or as a snowfoam which is more cost effective in its application

Available again this weekend @ £5 a bottle and free postage using code: WEEKEND17

Just ordered four more bottles @ £20 delivered. Amazing stuff, and a no effort application to any motor vehicle living outside....

As said before; I don't wax and or polish cars, been there , done that: I now wash with a wash-and-wax and rinse with from a RACEGLAZE filter: on occasion I'll spray with Turtle Wax Dry and Shine and wipe over with a Kent microfiber drying towel - and always looking good:

And that's just a wipe over - glass and all and applied as as said above, honest :thumbs up:

And on 20-inch 'winters'... :racer:

May not be perfect but hey, not spending an hour or more polishing...
