I searched a few other threads and it seems both have decent reviews. I was wondering from your experiences, what would be the best to use for washing the vehicle? Does one have a better shine than the other?
Looking for the showroom shine every time.
Pretty much that. That’s why I said unless you have a ceramic coat. I would just use the No rinse without the wax personally.My Ceramic coat tech says do not use a wash with wax in it. It will actually dull the finish. Went in for a annual touch up and he say he had to polish it out . He gave me a bottle of Optim No Rinse to use instead.
Who is this wonderful Coat Tech and where does he work? Sounds like a good place to take my cars!My Ceramic coat tech says do not use a wash with wax in it. It will actually dull the finish.

So are you going 1) ONR to soak and wash 2) Opti Seal to dry/finish during dry 3) Opticoat Pro to finish the shine?+1 on the No Rinse. To get a better shine with a quick detail (via rinse less wash), and since you are getting Opticoat Pro, I would use Opti Seal right after the wash. It'll last longer than the "wax" you get in the Optimum Wash and Wax and will shine better longer, will help repel dirt and debris better, etc.

I think #3 is ceramic coating that's already on the car. I think what everyone was saying is that if you already have ceramic coating on the car, use the blue ONR without wax and Opti-Seal during the drying.
I don't have ceramic coating or PPF. I use the green ONR with the wax. I almost bought the Opti Seal but comparing the part where I dry with Opti Seal and the part that I didn't. I can't see any difference. The car is not like showroom finish, but it looks clean LOL. I am thinking to switch to the blue ONR when I ran out of the green one just to see if I could tell the difference.
I probably won't have the ceramic coating. So IYO, I should do ONR with wax and just use the Opti seal? Thanks for the reply!
What do you use to wash your interior? (windshield, dash, seats, doors etc...)One of the added benefits of Opti-seal or hyper-seal (beefed up version of opti-seal) is that it adds additional protection and ease of follow-up washing and cleaning. Also, and I've posted this before, they both can be used as a drying aid when doing the two bucket wash and dry method with ONR. It has made washing and drying the car so much easier - and I get the added protection as well.
As far as ONRWW vs regular ONR, I have used ONRWW a lot on my Jeep GC and the new orange version of ONR on the Tesla. I love both. I used gloss-coat (Optimums DIY ceramic coat) so that's why i now use the orange ONR instead of the ONRWW. But overall, I loved the ONRWW and used it exclusively with my Jeep and opti-seal.
