    Hey guys, im just in dire need of some more car wash shampoo and ive been wondering lately about Megs Gold Class vs. Megs NXT Gen. Car Wash Soap/Shampoo. Im wanting good lubricity, sudsing action, and whatever else a "premium" car wash shampoo should have.



    Im still fairly new to all this actual in-depth research on products like lubricity etc. so Im asking you guys, who have dealt with these on a Professional basis for a number of years. I know you wont recc. a product if it will even consider hurting the vehicles surface.

    From my understanding the NXT is stronger and can strip your LSP. I have used Gold Class for years and can`t say anything bad about it but my favorite is Optimum car wash.

    between the two, i would go with gold class...



    you should look into CG`s CW&G ($20 a gallon = very economical). around 1 - 1 1/2 ounces is all you need for a great wash. i`ll be buying a gallon next when my current stock is just about used up...

    I find that GC and NXT wash both leave a lot of spotting or film. They both suds up great; I prefer the smell of NXT. You used to be able to get a gallon of GC at Target for $10...so that was kind of a big draw.

    my experience has been different. i find this to be one i like least out of all the megs washes i`ve tried. gold class and nxt are way better (i personally like gold class the best out of the three)...

    I have used the NXT, and really like it..



    It suds up great; I smells good..



    However, I will try the Gold next time, and see how that does!

    Jim, does the smell bother you at all? I thought about picking some of this up, but found the smell pretty strong.

    Given the option of the two and assuming that both products are available locally, I would buy whichever worked out to be the cheapest per use. For a car wash, they are a coin flip for me.



    If you are looking to other options besides those two, I also like the DG car wash and it is available OTS in my area.

    heck no! it smells like cherries! not too strong, just fruity. stuff is awesome but $6-7 for that small bottle at carquest for some. Gold Class is great for the $$. never used NXT but that deep crystal stuff is no better than Blue Coral...LOL

    1. Duragloss 901 , my favorite

    2. Megs Gold Class

    3. NXT



    DG just seems to leave a better finish and less spotting.



    Rinse with the nozzle off the hose and letting the water slowly pour out/sheet off the vehicle seems to help as well.



    I am looking forward to trying the new Eagle 1 Easy-Dri wash.

    Easi-Dri℠Car Wash – 64 oz



    No hand-drying



    Sheeting action provides a spot-less shine in less time



    64oz bottle makes 64 gallons

    Usage directions:



    Mix 1oz of car wash per gallon of water and spray heavy jet of water into bucket to activate foam



    Rinse entire vehicle with hose and wash with soft rag, wash mitt or sponge starting from top of vehicle down



    Rinse thoroughly and repeat 2nd rinse with a gentle, continuous stream of water to activate sheeting action



    Allow vehicle to dry (about 3-4 mins) and remove any remaining water droplets by simply touching up with a soft microfiber towel or chamois

    IIRC, someone one here already used it and said it wasn`t very good (left a film on the finish) and was going to return it...
