Sorry but I thought this was about an adult film star from Poland.

PimTac, have you used Meguiars Hyper Dressing?



Nope.


Regarding the Gtechniq product line, another great choice. I understand they had some problems a few years back with certain products but they redid the formulations and I’ve heard nothing but good things since.

I tried the Gtechniq Iron Remover and it worked like a charm. Much better than the Sonax version which kind of surprised me. Even worked better than the Iron-X gel version. It was probably the cheapest type product on Amazon and worked the best for me. Would buy again. When I bought from Amazon it was fulfilled through Palm Bach Motoring which is Autogeek.net and it's subsidiaries.

MGHD

I went with Megiuar's HD. It gets the best reviews across the board for engine, trim and tires. Great value. It is water based so it won't hold up as well but it's so easy to use. Spray and walk away. That is what I'm looking for. There are so many products in the detailing arena that are questionable. With a gallon of HD, I can use 2 spray bottles for different dilution ratios for multiple applications - engine/wheels/trim. Done deal.

I ordered a bottle of this and tried it on the Subaru. I somehow lost the before pics so I can't give you an idea of what it looked like prior to treatment. This stuff was $14.99 for 200ml. It goes a long way. I barely used any to cover the entire engine. It contains shampoo and oils. No water needed.

Pros - extremely easy to apply
cleans and protects
nice smell
leaves a beautiful matte finish

Cons - takes time due to no water use

I'm convinced that all water-based engine dressings last about the same, which isn't a long time. There is only one solution for protecting plastics with a product that will last over a year - Gyeon Trim. It's a ceramic coating for plastics. PimTac turned me on to it.

Going forward I'm perfectly fine with Meguiar's Hyper-Dressing. Far more easy to apply - spray and go. Done. Leaves a great finish at 4:1.

I definitely will. It was applied to a new engine with 2 miles on it. Durability is what I’m interested in. It goes on so easy. I like this stuff a lot.


I have to say though nothing is easier than Hyper Dressing:

update on P Engine. I love the matte finish it leaves behind. I applied it to the door trim molding as well and it works great. It contains oils that apparently last a good 6 months I'm told. I'll have an updated photo later of the Subaru engine bay that I applied it to.

The only issue I have with this stuff is how long it would take to really clean a dirty engine. We've all seen an engine bay after a snow winter. It's almost white. The way you would tackle a job like that with Polish Engine is to spray liberally all over the engine and let it sit 2-5 minutes. Then use a brush and microfiber towel and wipe it down.

The other way of doing this job would be to hose off the engine carefully with a good degreaser like Simple Green HD, leaf blow dry, then apply Hyper-Dressing. I feel this is much more efficient. Polish Angle Engine is more for an exotic car like a Ferrari that you wouldnt want to take a hose to. However, if you maintain the engine on a weekly basis, you could use Polish Engine and keep up with it.

Here is my engine after 2.5 months of Hyper-Dressing with routine wipe downs with Meguiar's Quik Detaler, which is my go to to clean the interior. Works very well and leaves an OEM finish. I'm thought about trying Polish Angel Engine on the interior next but it will be hard to beat the Meguiar's look I feel.

Here is a 2 month update on the Subaru Engine bay with Polish Engine. Nothing spectacular here. It looks and smells FANTASTIC when you first apply it, but I noticed some spotting in the pictures. What do you think?

I believe there is little you can do to keep the engine clean other than routinely clean it and it ultimately doesn't matter what products you use. In fact, I think the best way is to hose off engine (or use the airless paint sprayer method), dry with leaf blower, then clean with Meguiar's Interior Quick cleaner. Then follow up with Hyper Dressing if you want a slight sheen (5:1).

Still looks brand new to me. I'm not sure what you were expecting, it's an engine bay of a car that's driven.

It looks like the Polish Angel got wet not too long after being applied.

Spotting like that is either contamination or applying too heavily. You mentioned that you applied it sparingly so the other is a possibility.

I’m pretty sure it didn’t get wet. If it did it was well after I applied it. I love the way it smells though I must say.

Hyper-Dressing at 5:1 is still my favorite. Once the engine is clean you spray it and walk away. It’s hard to get to every area by hand using Polish Angel Engine.

I’ve barely used the Polish Engine as a little goes a long way.
