I was luckyI enough to get to see Doc G at SEMA this year and he was gracious enough to give me a small sample of the new Optimum No Rinse with Carnauba. I promised him I would use it soon and post a review here, so, here it is. My test Corolla, which is in the Opti Seal Video, had not been cleaned since the day before the trip to Las Vegas so I would guess it had proably close to 500 miles since it's last washing.
1) Packaging- The 8oz bottle I have is the same 8oz size that other products come in. The labeling looks great, and the intsructions are clear.
2) Smell - Since I promised Doc G I would't drink any more ONR, I will admit that I kept my promise. However, the new ONR w/Carnauba (ONRWC) smells incredible! It's a mixture or watermelon, coconut, and angel's breath. Well okay,, maybe not the last part, but it smells really really nice.
3) Dilution- I used the standard 1 oz to 1 gallon ratio. This formula is SLICK. Not "fake" slick lick a silicone detail spray, but more akin to a good car soap with lots of lubricity.
4) Shine- I have been a ONR user for a while and have grown accustomed to the shinee it leaves behind. I think, personal opinion, that the addition of carnauba to the ONR now gives the car "warmth" in addition to shine.
I will be posting some videos shortly of my using the product, but for now let me just say that the wait for the product will be/is well worth it. I think am going to play around with dilution ratios for a QD and will report on my results then. I think using this as a QD for door jambs areas and such will negate the need for any car scents since as I said before...IT REALLY SMELLS GOOD!!
