As promised, I tested the new formula ONR last week. The car washed had Opti-Coat Pro applied 7 years ago by Yvan (the coating is still there) and hadn't been washed in 4+ weeks. I used the standard mix in 2 buckets with separate sponges (Big Red and Big Gold), splitting the card down the middle. I didn't take pictures - it was in my garage, cloudy day, and I never find pictures all that helpful. Everything from here is subjective:
First observation, the original ONR had larger beads, the New Formula had smaller beads that sheeted off quickly. Not sure how hydrophobic ONR is, the car had Hyper Seal used as drying aid when last washed, so may be some combination, but there was an obvious difference.
I didn't see any obvious difference in cleaning power or shine, but the rinse water for New ONR was substantially darker (more dirt).
I did feel a difference in slickness, the New Formula being maybe 20% slicker (very subjective, I know). For a blind test, I had my wife run her hands over the paint and she agreed the New Formula felt slicker (she commented her fingers dragged more on original ONR).
For whatever it's worth -
