Any good QD used while drying will give you similar results.

Dad bought a trade size on at Auto Italia last year and baring in mind we use it on 2 cars most weekends, its still more than half full after over a year and I think he only paid £20ish for it Consdiering you pay 11.99 for a small bottle its well worth going for the trade one

I disagree. Aqua wax contains carnuba and offers real protection as part of a regular top up routine. I have two types of Megs speed detailer and the new AG version and whilst good, none come close to AW. Express Wax in trade form cost c£25 for 5 litres. Contact your local AG rep.

I really like the AG AW but another one I'm using alot at the moment especially on my black 147 is Chemical Guys Speed Wipe..... which is a spray wax and speed detailer, a US gallon size is also about £25.

I do agree with SR that it is a spray WAX rather than a detailing spray but i'm not that big a fan. It doesn't give the looks or durability of a proper wax and i don't find that its that much quicker and easier to do. All it eliminates is the need to dry the car which only takes me about 10 - 15 mins anyway.

I'd rather dry the cay and apply a good wax like Megs #16 instead.

How about Duragloss #951 aquawax? I havnt used it but hear good things about it. One i have tried is Optimum Car Wax. I havnt used it wet but it does say on the back of the bottle 'wipe off the excess water and spray on'. This stuff gives an awesome shine and glossy finish i have to say. Other products simliar which are dry sprays are Valet Pro Citrus Bling and Zymol Field Glaze. Theyre both spray waxes and offer around 1 mnths durability and awesome finishes. The VP Cutrus Bling can be diluted to give different uses such as glass polish, Quick Detailer and Clay Lube. £8 for 500ml and it goes along way if you use 300 for spray wax then dilute the rest into 3 other bottles for the above.
