I have used many quick detailers and so far Optimum Instant Detailer is my favorite. Product wipes off easily and leaves surface slick with a very high gloss. Product is a little pricey but excellent performance makes it worth the price.

I ONR'ed the car in the garage at night and then drove 45 miles the next morning to a summer concours with the Mercedes-Benz Club. I used the Instant Detailer to wipe down the car. The surface was glistening and the car looked like jewelry among a sea of priceless classics. It was stunning. The biggest shock of all was that I won 3rd place in the concours!

This is my go-to detailer. When purchased in bulk you can adjust the ratio as needed. It virtually never streaks, and adds a nice shine. While I almost always have a rotation of different detailers on the shelf, this is always one of them!

Does a nice job eliminating water spots when drying vehicle. Takes very little effort to remove and if you use it sparingly it does not leave cloudy residue. Great gloss and leaves slick surface. Perfect for maintenance shine with little extra time involved.

Sometimes The product ghosted and didn't dry that great. I know it's a concentrate, so I played with the mixtures and still didn't find a good medium. Chemical Guys Quick Synthetic Detailer blows this away.

Very good product. Just used it this past weekend with Optimum No-Rinse and it performed better than I expected. I purchased this solely because of the success I've had with other Optimum products and I'm glad I did.

Spoilers! I have an OCD concerning clean wheels. Once I clean my wheels I must seal them and maintain their shine for as long as possible. I have discovered that this product works great at cleaning off mild brake dust so long as a base layer of protection is present. The lubrication properties are fantastic. The name says it all.

I use Optimum Instant Detailer & Gloss Enhancer for final drying. It is very easy to use; just spray on, wipe on with one side of your plush microfiber towel, and wipe off with the other. It comes off with no streaks. I am not very sensitive to smell, but it has a pleasant one. Your car will shine. Recommended.

Probably the best detail spray I have ever used. I have only used it in the garage with completely cool paint but comes off easy with zero streaks. Just a quick mist spreads forever. I bought the 32oz and I can see already it will last a LONG time.

Has to be one of the best QD I have used to date. Recently I was going to take a long trip but didn't have time to wash my 06 TL. Used the Optimum Instant Detailer & Gloss Enhancer and a clean microfiber towel and presto!!!! The car had been garaged for a few days and had a light dusting. The QD did the job. Great product.

I love this detailer that I have a hard time putting it down, especially since it smells like bubblegum. I use it to boost the optimum car wax spray shine and leave the car smelling great with high gloss again.

One of the best QD's I've ever used. Great gloss and nice slickness. I've used Z6, Z8, Meguire's QD and Finish Kare. None of them compare to Optimum. Love it, and it is definitely my go to QD from now on.

I just ordered the 17 oz. side to sample this product, and I can already say I'll be purchasing the bigger version next time. I haven't gotten a chance to dilute it yet, but one spray seems to cover a fairly large area. If you wipe the product around and it hasn't dried yet, just keep wiping over a larger area until it does dry. If you have some smearing, just make sure to either use less or spread it over a larger area and wipe it until it dries.


I'm seriously trying to decide if my car looked better after applying the dodo juice purple haze or after this stuff. It seems to give my black metallic mustang cobra a shiny, glossy, sealed look; instead of a nice deep carnuba waxed look.

I figured all these positive reviews couldn't be wrong, and they weren't. This stuff rocks.

This is an OUTSTANDING QD, used Dodo juice Rainforest Rub on my AW BMW then topped it with this and it made the paint super slick and glossy!!! Diluted it 3:1 with distilled water. As soon as this 32oz is done I'll be purchasing a gallon!!!

This instant detailer is an excellent value. Don't be mislead by that fact though! It is easy for people to think that a product that is so cheap (buy the concentrate!) can't work as well as the more expensive products. It would be a mistake to believe that when it comes to Optimum's Instant Detailer and Gloss Enhancer. It does require a bit more care in use than other ID's as it can streak if not careful, but it is worth the little extra attention that is required since it gives a better gloss and depth than any other ID that I have used, which is quite a few.

I'm glad George recommended this product to me. A light mist wipes away quick, with no streaking problem like other products. I love that it's a concentrate, so a quart makes a gallon - very affordable! My new favorite QD.

This is a quick detailer that works well on all exterior surfaces. Adds nice gloss and slickness, primarily on silver and lighter-colored vehicles. The price is amazing, $15 for a 32oz concentrate (dilute it 3:1). You don't need to dilute with distilled water, plain tap water works great. Seems to refresh gloss and slickness of any existing paint protection. For the price and performance, I will always have this product on my shelf.

I have tried many QD's and this is the best so far at any price. i bought the gallon. When you dilute 3 to 1 the cost per gallon is incredibly low! Use a plush to buff and you will feel when you're done. It is that smmoooth! Better than CG synthetic. Duragloss, Griots.Ultima or Megs FI and a much better value with 4 gallons when diluted with distilled water. 5 Stars!

Wow I love this QD. I have the following QD's on my shelf: UQD, Last touch, CG Speed wipe, Pinnacle XMT, DP rinseless w/g at QD strength, CG synthetic...this one is by far my favorite.

Last touch is my go-to for a "cleaner" qd, but OID is the best for shine and slickness QD.

This product is truly the best instant detailer I have ever used. I have used almost ten different ones and this surpasses them all as far as cleaning ability and shine afterwards. It only adds to the wax underneath making it even that much better. If you are looking for an instant detailer don't look any further than this it is truly amazing!

No only is this a great product, but it's cheap...considering that you get 4 gallons from 1. I've used FK425 for years and years. When I couldn't find any more to buy, I had to try something else. This was recommended, and it work just as good as 425, but it's leaves a much nicer gloss. I'll be using this product from now on.

Optimum Instant Detailer & Gloss Enhancer is truly the best quick detailer I have used. Works great for removing polishes safely from the paint. Also after your opti-seal has cured, lightly mist this product and wipe away for an extremely slick surface. Buy the 32oz and turn it into a gallon. Excellent product.
