Used this for the first time yesterday and really dissapointed, especially after waiting probably 2 years now to try it. I used up my Megs QD in excitement and sprayed the QD+ onto the car. Chalk-tastic. In fact I've found all the Poorboys stuff I have a chalk nightmare. Spraying it onto the MF cloth first helped but I'm going to go back to Megs. Would work fine on a car like a Spit or Mini where there's little black trim but the 4i catches it all over the place. I spent a few hours yesterday going round the car with a kebab stick trying to get white clumps out of tiny spaces before using the QD+ :cry:

How disappointing.

Your car must be especially prone to showing things up - being black and having lots of plastic trim.

Yeah it's a real chalk trap of a car and the QD+ is increadably chalky. I've just ordered some more Mist & Wipe I was almost going to get the Souveran Crystal Mist but I resisted.

I noticed my local motor factor stocks the HUGE gallon containers of Megs - I believe (if my memory serves me right) that the quick detail daddy is one of those.

My Megs Quik Clay kit came through today.

I swear the clay is half the size of the one I bought a couple of years ago.

Not sure if I mentioned it - but Poorboy's Natural Look is excellent - basically everything on your interior.

Did Mum's Mini and it looks fab-o-licious...

Cool.

I'm totally off Poorboys now, would be interesting to see other people results but I certainly wont be commiting to buying before trying.

I've heard good things about Megs new interior Quik Detailer too.

I had been thinking about trying poorboys on my rx, not so sure now although there's no plastic trim on the exterior of mine really

been using megs until now with decent results (see sig) and here

well I actually used an 'autoglym'/'megs' multihit combo, using high resin polish then megs gold class wax. I now have the new tech wax to have a try of, perhaps this weekend in preperation for JAE

Well I wouldn't advise the Poorboys however you're welcome to come down and try mine.

Megs is pretty good really, I used to use the NXT polish&wax and although it was chalky it gave a nice finish.

Have you got the Gold Class liquid or wax?

I ask because imo the best move you can make is going to a paste wax.

There's Souveran of course, again you could try some of mine if you want.

Looking at that pic it doesn't look like you need to move from megs really.

I've only ever really used the liquids, I didn't even know they did any other, quite a n00b to the whole wax on wax off thing really

might take you up on the offer trying the poorboys stuff out though :D

The whole car detailing thing has exploded this summer on the car forums.

It's been quite entertaining for a few of us on here because a couple of years ago we got into the detailing thing and thanks to JC got a lot of information from the states.

Back then all you over got in the UK was nerds arguing between AutoGylm and Megs like they were the only two companines contending.

Now it's all changed and it's amusing to watch people totaly miss the point. On MigWeb for instance they are all frantically buying clay bars and using them every wash :cry:

No products will make up for a bad job, that's the basic rule. In fact more products make a bad job worse imo.

There is no 'best' I know people who use Autoglym for concourse and get better results than people using Clearkote, Poorboys, Megs and Souveran all at once.

Imo this is what makes the important difference:
A decent car shampoo that doesn't strip protection off
Using microfibre clothes instead of naff polishing rags
Using a polish suitable for the level of scratching
Binning any liquid waxes and going to paste
Maintaining the protection and shine effeciently
