RE: where to buy Klasse products?

I dont know why you wouldnt trust a reputable online store such as http://www.properautocare.com

I have used them for a long time, and they have delivered everything, on time, and exactly what I ordered. They do deal in Klasse products and you will not find a finer group of people to deal with.

RE: where to buy Klasse products?

Many MB and BMW dealers carry Klasse AIO and SG. A good alternative that I started using about a year ago to reaplce my Klasse is NXT, a synthetic like Klasse from Meguiars. The problem I have with Klasse is that it's fussy about how it's applied and removed. It must be done in sections with a damp applicator and then removed before dry, not easy in the summer sun. NXT in contrast must be allowed to completely dry so I can apply the wax to the entire car and by the time I'm done it's ready to be removed.

RE: where to buy Klasse products?

is NXT easy to be buffed off when it's dried, Buellwinkle? and is it an all-in-one product? i want Klasse AIO cuz it can clean, polish and protect in one application.

Another online store that I've had great experience with is Autopia.com - their post-Klasse Sonus products are fantastic. Prices v reasonable.

NXT is very easy to take off, but it is not an all in one product.

Yes, it's very easy to remove once completely dry, never had it streak (Klasse can streak on some finishes), little to no dust and it dries clear so it doesn't stand out in places you can't get to. Also, it has non-abbrasive cleaners in it like Klasse AIO. When you say polish in AIO, it doesn't really have a polish in the traditional sense of an abbrasive polish, just a cleaner. There are true all in one products that have real polish in them to remove swirls and leave a wax finish like Malco Rejuvenator but it's marketed to professionals only. I think that Klasse AIO and NXT give the illusion of being a polish by filling in swirls and making it look polished which not necessarily a bad way to go, you don't want to polish too often, you'll wear the paint away.

The trick to NXT, or all waxes for that matter is to apply it as thin as possible. People have to tendency to over apply wax thinking they'll get a thicker coat, the reality is the thicker application is a waste as you will remove most of it anyway, it will make it much harder to remove and create more dust.
