Also new from Meguiar’s and another newcomer to their Hybrid Ceramic lineup is called Pre-Wax Prep and shares the same pleasing smell as the exterior trim product although the bottle is a different colour here (bright red).

It is super easy to apply and is almost a wipe on; wipe off type elixir that does remove swirl marks and helped revive some tired-looking paint on my friend’s 20-year-old Jaguar XJ, which due to a gearbox problem has been parked up for several months, meaning the paint has been neglected.

After shampooing the car, this stuff got to work very quickly and it was soon ready for the sealant and wax stages. I initially thought it expensive at £20 but once I tried it out and saw how it worked, I now believe it to be a very good product and if you follow a detailing regime involving multiple stages then this will be of real interest.

Available now from Meguiar’s appointed stockists or direct via ENDS.
