      Did not want to create a new post as this is just continuation of the existing product.
      My first review - Gurus, pls, pls bear with me..

      Till date have been using Ultima waterless wash(UWW) and Optimum No Rinse(ONR) for my alternate day or 2/3 days once waterless washes.
      Felt absolutely no need for a change, till ProKlear announced the new Raw Xtream CX.

      Always wanted to use Proklear because of its publicity as a VFM product. So, ordered one and tried it out last Saturday.

      Before I start, have a q for PROKLEAR. Why does CX foam up when mixed with water?
      Though when touched, does not give any soapy feel on hand. See below image

      Mix details:
      This is almost half of UWW's dilution - 5mL for 500mL of water, I generally use RO water.

      It was really early and indoor when I started the work, so could not take a "before" image of the car. Took some panel "before- after" images.
      I will not bore you with the details on how to do Waterless wash, there are zillion articles on that..

      Started with the top. As was afraid of the lubrication, sprayed a good amount on the panel and waited for about a min(just in case again - bird watching )

      My boot area was the most dustiest area and CX did a pretty good job cleaning that too.

      Overall - the mix had excellent lubrication, had no worries right from the first wipe. Also, there was no streaking. The shine was clearly visible.
      Was able to complete within 45 mins and was left with about 100ml of the solution still left, went about with the wheels and got them cleaned a bit with the remaining.
      Complete pics below(please note, there might have been some spray wax still on the paint - done couple of weeks back)

      Comparison:
      UWW - Around RS.1800 for 473mL and the whole dhabba comes for around 39 washes(with 12 mL for each 500mL wash)
      CX - RS 499 for 250mL and the whole dhabba come for anrnd 48 washes(with 5 mL for each 500mL and including some "my bad" wastage)

      Which comes to around Rs 46 per wash for UWW and RS 10.5 per wash for the CX. No wonder this is termed as VFM product, its indeed one.
      I am yet to test their claim of protection, though many would have tested that already. Somehow feel, the wax is still there on top of the paint, but not sure if its the CX or the older spray wax. But the shine because of the added WAX is clearly visible.

      Only drawback I faced:
      For ppl who have used UWW, the smell is addictive.. CX for sure would not able to match UWW's smell This still is a kind of soft chemical smell.

      Will be doing a QD sometime this week with UWW, will keep that too posted.

      Proklear have claimed this can be used in the interiors too, but still skeptical on using this on the Leather.
      The only difference between me and a madman is that I am not mad..

      balajivembu did you find any stickiness after wiping. Did you use two microfibers method i.e. one to wipe and one to buff. In Extreme I find some stickiness (@proklear has said that the formula for extreme was later 1 month back) so wanted to check.

      No, there was no stickiness. TO my knowledge, there is no change between Xtreame CX and Xtreame, just that CX has some added WAX. Yes, used 2 MFs- one was mainly to dry the surface as had used lots of the mix to be safe for the first time.

      An update on The PROKLEAR Xtreme im using.

      I got a 1Litre bottle of Xtreme from the first batch. I just started using it last week since I had some RAW and UWW left over.


      So last week took the bottle out and the colour has gone completely. Its milky white in colour. I tested it white washing, it still works perfectly but the color has faded and smell has changed a little bit. I think proklear should work on this as it has happened on a similar level on 2 products of proklear.

      Raw - liquid separated and some precipitates formed.
      Xtreme - Colour change.
      '08 Suzuki Swift - 1.3 VXI - sold
      '13 Skoda Rapid TDI - 1.6 Code6'd - sold
      '11 Honda Civic - 1.8 VMT - FFE + Intake - sold
      '12 Hyundai Verna Fluidic - 1.4 VTVT
      '16 Hyundai Creta SX AT
      '16 Suzuki Alto K10 AMT VXI(o)

      Basically these products are oil in water emulsions, wax will not mix with water so an interface is needed to join them. when air is introduced in water it will also foam but briefly if the same is done in viscous liquids the foam is observable . Also we have loaded CX with the maximum Carnauba wax possible without saturating and changing the ease of use. Be assured what you are getting is real carnauba wax in CX.
      In our tests a increase in gloss reading of >10% was observed. The effect was very noticeable in solid colors like red and of course the slickiness.

      Thanks for the review, while developing this product we had compared the best available and tried to at least match if not exceed the performance. Your review gives us the confidence that we are level with the competition and encourages us to go further.

      Thanks for the support!
