Awesome Showroom Shine
6/1/2014
Pros
Showroom shine
Cons
Difficult to Remove
Best Uses
If You Want A Deep Shine
Comment:
Been using Nu Finish liquid and paste for over 5 years. I waxed once a year and after 1 year, it still beads. The only thing is the white residue it left in nooks and cranny plus plastic. Switched to Turtle Wax Ice and noticed the deep showroom shine it left without the residue. I also use it on black moldings which brought back life to the rubberized metal and plastic. The only thing, it's difficult to remove and needs muscular elbow grease. We'll see how long the wax last to see if I'm going back to Nu Finish or not.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Best Wax Ever

Easy to apply
For All Surfaces
Incredible Smooth Finish
Cons
Removal Not The Easiest
Best Uses
Any Exterior Surface
Comment:
I have been using NuFinish for the last couple of years, but got tired of how it stained plastics and all the white residue it left behind. I decided to try ICE since it had the same durability rating and exceeded a couple of others. I could not believe how slick/smooth ICE left the finish. In addition, they actually encourage you to use it on all surfaces. I have some plastic/rubber trim that is dull, so I gave it a try. To my amazement, it left the finish looking much better.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Goof proof car polish
11/12/2012
Pros
Can Use On Interior Metal
Fast drying
No Chaulky Residue
Plastic Not Discolored
Cons
Hard to find
Best Uses
Great For Clear Coat
Comment:
The chaulky residue and molding discoloration that is typical of most car polishes is non-existent with ICE Turtle Wax. Because it doesn't discolor plastic, it can be used on interior metal surfaces. It's low abrasiveness is particulary suitable for clear coat finishes. It wipes off easily with a microfiber cloth. The polish leaves a nice shine and visible protection. It dries fast so you should wipe it off before moving on to another section of the car; otherwise it takes extra effort to remove. Turtle Wax ICE liquid is widely available but the paste is hard to find in stores. I had to order mine through the internet.
