Never heard of it. Sounds too good to be true though. I seriously doubt anything will last 5 years on your paint even though it may be the "best protective coating known to man."

I never heard of it either. Judging by it claims, I would think it's just another gimmick wax.

Nihsnek is an unknown quantity at this point
If you look at their"comparison chart, you can tell it's a gimmick.

How would a "wax-based wax" be rated "Good" at defending against Strong Acids, yet be "Fair" at defending against Weak Acids?

BBB checks out and check this out

http://www.dodgeforum.com/m_72670/tm.htm

so I emailed to see if I could do a test on it for the the site. Got this back...

We do not offer free samples due to the high cost of the product and high number of requests we receive. We do offer a 30 day money back guarantee so our customers can test the product risk free, however. Thank you for your interest.
hmmm....5 year product, but 30 day guarantee huh? i'll get right on that.
