Default Tried this polish - C-Magic Radiant

All I can say is "WOW". This is not a new product but the first for me to use on my vehicles. I have a black C7 and a dark blue Silverado. I have done them both and the results are the best that I have ever experienced

Shiny! FYI, that isn't a polish. It is a spray sealant (synthetic wax) with some ceramic additive. Looks great!

I use nothing but C Magic products. They are available at the Museum, at the Black Hills Rally, and they have a website.

I love C Magic. I use the wax, detail spray, tire dressing and just recently picked up the radiant to use on my GS and my wife's V. It does look good.

Great product, I use it on all my cars after a good paint correction. Easy on and easy off.

Do you feel it is potent enough to use as a stand-alone means of protection? Or, do you think it should be used over a base sealant application?

I have used it both ways, over Wolfgang 3.0 sealer and over no sealer. I think it may work better over the WG 3.0 but is good either way. I currently have 20 layers of Radiant with no sealer on my black C-6 show Corvette and the results are outstanding. The shine may be a little better when used without the sealer but the durability and the resistance to micro marring little better with the WG 3.0 sealer.

Over WG 3.0? Now I'm going to have to try it.

You are not alone! I like to try many different products to see what works best for me. Unfortunately, a LOT of new products work really well. So, basically, I have enough soap, all-purpose cleaner, polish, sealant, wax, detail spray, microfiber towels, DA pads, etc. to last me through a zombie apocalypse.

Yup.
My cure. C3 gets Zaino AIO & Clear Seal or Z8 only. Van & C7 get Zaino AIO topped with Blackfire Si02. Lexus gets CMagic with Radiant only. Products now get rotated.

This is so true !!!! You all just need to quit it !! My wife is signing me up for therapy as my cabinet with car products just got emptied out and is already filling up again with different items. Now I have to go buy something else !!

Find what works for you and stick with it. There will always be a "Product of the week" to try. I like to see the product in a real life situation and applied to a vehicle and do my own evaluation. the difference between most of the new products is in the eye of the beholder, vehicle, lighting and surface prep. You can go broke trying the"Products the week".
