Best wax available at Pep boys, auto zone etc....?

I ran out of Zaino and need to wax the car up by tomorrow and i was wondering what is the best wax i can get at a local store? Hows that new Turtle wax?

Since you're looking for the best available at a normal store, go for the Meguiars NXT. Some stores also have Meguiars professional paste wax #16. That stuff looks alot like Zaino (mirror-like shine with less depth). Look for that before NXT.

If your shopping at Pep Boys then Liquid Glass would offer you the best and longest lasting protection, NXT will make your car look good at first, but it only lasts a few weeks, LQ will last several months

On my black car i used zaino and on the quasar blue z I now use Zymol. I have been happy with it thus far. I haven't tried the NXT stuff though. Maybe I will give that A SHOT.

Mother's carnauba has always worked great for me.

Eagle One just came out with their Nanowax stuff, and surprisingly it turned out pretty well when I tried it. It has a nice deep gloss. Too bad it makes the orange peel on the bottom of my doors stand out more.

I use P21S and it is the easiest to apply and remove..
and excellent durability... and I have a black car and am pretty
picky with waxes and polishes..

I also use Ardex products-which are also good to use.

I don't like Mother's..to chalky
Meguires....too oily
3M-like Meguires
havent' tried the rest.

P21S is one of the best pure waxes available. However, you can just go to a Harley shop and pick up S100 wax which is the exact same thing for around half the price.
