    Default is it enough?

    twice a year the car gets the full clay and megs 3 stage, then about once a fortnight a top up with megs nxt wax, although this past weekend gave it a coat of Rude-Boys Super Wet, (good kit).
    should i be doing more?

    I wash it when I get a chance, spray wax after each wash, only gets a proper detailing twice a year.

    Depends how much time and money you have, I suppose!

    I'd be inclined to ditch the fortnightly spray wax in place of the better wax every few weeks. Most spray waxes don't last too long so I'd say you'd be better using the better was and just doing it less often - less work for you!

    The nxt is a cleaner wax so it has polish in it as well. If its a better wax your after get a dedicated one, also nxt doesn't last to long.

    Didn't realise that either! Don't use the stuff as I use a dedicated wax, but good to know!

    I just use my liquid NXT for my alloys now, helps clean the paint plus cos its a liquid you don't have to put your contaminated (with break dust) applicator back in your paste, just squeeze on.
