Cadillac CTS and Meguiar’s NXT Tech Wax, week 2

More rain today as Hurricane Ike comes ashore south of us.  Hopefully everyone stays safe from the storm.


Grabbed this shot of my Cadillac CTS with my Kodak C875 on a tripod.  Looks like the Meguiar’s Tech Wax is still beading up very well after week 2 of real-world use.  The paint feels waxy, silky good to the touch.  Click the image for a close-up link to the larger file.

After another week or so I want to use Meguiar’s Cleaner Wax, then top it with a coat of NXT Tech wax and see how that looks.

The grill medallion to the left is a Heritage Of Ownership medallion.  These are originally ordered by the Sales department at a Cadillac Dealer and presented as a ‘gift’ to the vehicle purchaser.  The number on the medallion indicates the number of Cadillacs you have owned.  In my case the list includes a 1992 Cadillac STS, a 1989 Cadillac Fleetwood (briefly), a 1996 Cadillac STS, and a 2004 Cadillac CTS.  Between my 04 and 05 models I have 75K+ miles in CTS’s now; they have been great cars.

Next time I think I definitely want a sunroof.  I had avoided the sunroof when I got my CTS’s due to the loss of head room and to the extra weight (racer Bruce lol) an (cough) cost.   I think a sunroof can add a lot to the enjoyment of the Cadillac though, so if my next Cadillac is not an XLR (hardtop convertible) then it will definitely have a sunroof.
