from my experience, i tried it the other weekend, and amazing! the claybar is great at removing ANYTHING on a car. to test the outcome rub your backhand on the paint before, do the clay works, wax, then rub again! and you will *feel the difference*. i did portions throught time to not wear myself out. i know you are not supposed to let the clay rub on dry paint, hint, the detailer is for!

My 02 still looks like fresh off the lot. Inside and out. It even still has a little of that new car smell.... mmmmmmmm....

Always amazed at how smooth the car is after clay and wax. It's almost sensual...
Guess thats just the difference.
NO ONE, and I mean no one but me touches my civic
