I recently was running low on my Chemical Guys synthetic wash/wax. I did some searching around for a product to replace it and came up lacking so I went to purchase another gallon to find out it had been reformulated. The new formulation has "color brightening technology", not sure what that means. I find it to be even slicker than the previous version, yet the new one doesn't suds up as much. From the few times I have used the new version I find that it removes less wax than the old one, based off of water beading properties.

Here are some pics of todays detail. Washed with Chemical Guys Extreme Bodywash + Wax, "wax as you dry" with Turtle Wax Seal N Shine, topped headlights with Optum Opti-Seal, and topped seats with Leather Masters Leather Protection Cream.

This is my 2012 Accord with just under 60,000 miles.

Well 7 years of daily driving shows here and there, but I do my best within reason to keep them looking as new as possible.

I like the color combo also. I had originally test drove a dark grey metallic Accord with a grey interior. The car was more dinged up than I liked, so I didn’t purchase. A day later I found this one, a “cream puff” owned by a little old lady I presume. It was love at first sight.

Yes, my only complaint is the smell. It smells like baby powder.

I'm out of shampoo and saw this at Walmart yesterday. It was $10 but in a smaller container. It said to use an ounce per 5 gallons of water so highly concentrated which makes the price more feasible. I just washed cars last weekend so have some time to figure out what I want to get. Also saw the Seal and Shine so may try that also.
