2021 Best quick detailer for maximum gloss

Okay, so I know this question has been asked before... but what with the ever changing product landscape.. I thought why not ask again for 2021.

So, an unpopular opinion but i'm fed up of quick detailers being praised for their durability.. I know this is important in lots of cases.. however my lsp is usually my dedicated wax or sealant, and I reapply that long before it's durability would be called into question..

For me... I want a quick detailer that just adds that extra 'pop' and glossy finish to the paint after the weekly wash before driving to a car meet

I'm curious to know people recommend. Currently my QD collection consists of:
- Chemical Guys - Synthetic Quick Detailer (My go to, which i've used for years)
- Meguiars - Quick Detailer Mist & Wipe (kept in the boot of the car)
- SONAX Xtreme Brilliant Shine Detailer
- Gtechniq C2v3
- Dodo Juice - Supernatural Carnauba Glaze
- Autoglym - Rapid Detailer

Now I know some of the above are more on the sealant side anyway.. which is why i'm asking the question about what QD gives the ultimate glossy finish regardless of durability.

i'm tempted to try one of the following next:
- P&S Paint Gloss Showroom Spray N Shine
- Bouncer's - Done & Dusted
- Zaino - Z-6

I'm keen to hear everyone's thoughts and recommendations though.

Cheers

Not sure about maximum gloss but, Gyeon QD is very glossy and so is Z6 for that matter, both look great on my red metallic paint, but the GQD edges it for me.

Detailedonline's Ceramic Elite Detailer is pretty good, can be used as a quick detailer or if left for at least ten minutes, leaves a layer of ceramic protection.
Always leaves my car super glossy too.

There are three that jump out at me that I’ve used and when I’ve stepped back from the car, i’ve gone wow.

1) Carbon Collective Finale speciale detailer - this is the best i’ve seen,
2) Bouncers Done & Dusted Si Edition,
3) DetailedOnline Ceramic Elite Detailer, this also works well on top of their ceramic wax.

Not a QD but I'd recommend Tac's Shiney Wax to be used as a QD. Just used last weekend on the wifes black Kodiaq (On top of moonlight) and its never looked better - very glossy.

I avoid QD's as they aren't good value IMO - Diluting an Si02 (Such as the C2V3 down to 1:3 you mentioned) spray works better for me.

If you buy them in gallon sizes they work out much cheaper.
