No idea, probably a scam. I hope you didn't let them put that on your paint.

re: FW1 wax???


well, if I demonstration was involved, I would be skeptical from the start...why would a good product need someone pimping it at a gas station to sell?...

I did a quick search on AutoGeek's forum. Most people say it's actually a decent product, but they still prefer not to use it on their vehicles in favor of better waterless washes that use better chemicals, etc. If you're not super anal about the finish on your vehicle, then it's probably not a bad choice for just cleaning some light dust and/or waterspots. Anything more than that, get a better product or use soap & water and the 2 bucket method.

I wouldn't even consider using it how she demonstrated it on her car. Just spraying on and wiping it clean without washing it. Sounds like a perfect recipe to scratch your ride up. Was more curious as how well it does as a wax. She said you can use it as a glass cleaner and rainx type product too.

It's actually pretty legit for a quick detail. I'd still hand wash and wax at some point though

It worked best on interior trim and glass. I have gloss black interior and if I used this fingerprints wouldn't show up for a week or two.

Yeah, I know there are some people on the forums that use the waterless wash products as a normal wash. I'm sure they do work, but I could never bring myself to use them on a dirty car. As a wax, I'm sure it'd work fine. Probably just have to apply it after every wash.

Then what would be the point. you shouldn't have to wax your car after every wash. What is the best product that you know of for removing water spots?

I would just use it between washes if the truck wasn't too dirty but wasn't really clean either.

It was a black truck and I never noticed swirls or any other negative effects from it.

If you're looking for a top quality product that will last for months then get some kind of a sealant. Another option is Collinite 845 insulator wax. It won't give the gloss of sealants, but it'll protect your paint for 4-6 months at a time.

The problem with sealants is that they often require long cure times and 2 to 3 coats for optimum durability. Though there are some exceptions, which are the products I generally go for because I 1) don't have a shaded area to apply these products and 2) don't have time to let them cure for 6-8+ hours.

My current products are Poor Boy's World Polish with Sealant topped with Four Star's Ultimate Paint Protectant. All Poor Boy's products can be applied in direct sunlight and can be topped immediately. They are just good products in general. The Four Star UPP, is a solid sealant that also requires no cure time.

I also use a quick wax/detailer after each wash though just to enhance the gloss. That's optional obviously...the water would still bead regardless.

ETA: And if you're just looking for water spot removal, hand washing and proper drying should take care of that...if not, hit it with some quick detailer after drying.
