I can't say anything about the durability of this product but, in general, Turtle Wax produce quality products like McDonalds produce quality food. Stay away from this brand if you care at all about your car.

i must say the turtle was ice commercial on tv got me, decided to try it so went and picked it up at crappy tire, to my suprise the stuff actaully works pretty well, has a real nice shine to it, and u can put it on all the lights and plastic parts too, and also use it under the sun works pretty good if you were to ask me, ppl shouldnt bash it if they havent even used it.

TW ICE is a typical mass consumer wax product. Easy on, easy off, looks good initially, but will not last more than 6 weeks. I haven't used it, but have used Megs NXT, and have heard ICE is similar.

sorta mixed review from people here.....
i have used it twice on 2 different cars
i have a small detailing buisness in my garage and I am shocked to hear people actually like this stuff. I can see getting away with using it if you don't have enuf time to wax your car and want your car decently shinny for a show or something but other than that I would never use it

Best wax I used so far is S100 available for $17.00 from a Harley Davidson shop. On top of a properly prepped finish it looks phenomenal on Silver and just drop dead gorgeous on black or dark blue. If used as a topper over Klasse Acrylic Sealant (AIO+SG) the gloss produced by S100 is simply amazing.

I used Meg's NXT before and it gave good results but it cannot be layered because of its cleaning properties. The longevity also is not that good as other sealants. In the category of NXT, I can say ICE is on the same line if you just want a simple to use all in one OTC product but not for serious detailing. Meg's #6 Cleaner Wax as well as their ColorX is also a good one stepper.
