No, but i would not use any waterless wash system, the use of water fundementally assists in washing away solids!.

I could get a dirty car clean with a dry cloth and then spend forever correcting the paint damage.

Take a look at sites like www.detailingworld.co.uk is you want more qualified opinion

that stuff can only damage your paintwork, a question, when you wash yourself do you use water or not?

I have to say that when I have seen these sprays (don't think it was Proshine) on QVC they always seem to do a good job. Then again, they wouldn't demonstrate it if it didn't. Mind you they could probably use weedkiller or something and still make it look good, it's their job.
However, I can't get my head around the concept of cleaning a car without using water. Not to mention what the chemicals would do to the paintwork over time. Might be ok for light soiling ie. you washed the car a couple of days ago and just need to give it a last minute clean before a show or something.

Just make sure there are no water runs or damp patches when you buff up, or you smear it again and have to re-buff

For me it is iterim too. Between me buying the car and selling it.

Sorry Aquawax and Super Resin Polish are the limit for me, with perhaps a bit of Paint Renovator to remove some small scratches.
