    From GRIOTS...Griot`s Garage Speed Shine Detailer should still be used between washes, but Spray-On Wax should be used immediately after each wash. Griot`s Garage Spray-On Wax is meant primarily for clean cars. Used as a drying aid, it helps prevent water spots.
    Dead on. Spray-On Wax is the preferred drying aid. Speed Shine doesn`t leave anything behind but it will help with flashing during the drying process. Spray-On Wax will maintain Poly Wax during the drying process though.

    Since Speed Shine doesn`t leave anything behind, you`d be safe to apply another coat of poly wax.

    Huh, wonder if they`ve changed it. When I was using it (many, MANY gallons, starting back when it was still called Fast Shine), it definitely left stuff behind: I`d use SpeedShine to clean off a bird-bomb and the area where I used it would bead/feel differently from surrounding areas that were SpeedShine-free; do half a panel with it as a drying aid and that half would bead differently from the other half; etc. etc.

    I have tested and 4 winter months seems to be it.

Just some funky water behavior... not a bad thing but just confused me when observing it`s performance.
    It does like two layers, 24 hours apart if possible. Self cleaning... eh, seems to be comparable to any average sealant. Bird bombs haven`t seemed to be an issue for this product... spring is finally here in my local and the birds are bombing, lol, and I don`t have time to wipe them off my own vehicles.

    I would say it competes well with 845 and Meg`s ULW (and I mention those because most people have a working knowledge with those products.)
    Thats what I find also, works great w/ a nice binging shine.
