I have been a professional detailer for 40 years and the only thing Meguiars has going for it is a multi-million dollar advertisement budget. The stuff sucks in my opinion. I use products that you cannot get at local retail outlets. My results are used on $500,000.00 muscle, and auction cars as well as the average Joe who lives next door. For the same money you can achieve this in less time.

Well since you felt it necessary to completely shoot down the product that several people have vouched for, do you care to share exactly what it is that you do use?LOL

Production Car Care

1) Reviver with a compounding foam pad you don't need a clay bar, I have all the Clay Bars and they are used for really poor surfaces ( air pollutants, over spray and road grime)

I prep the surface with Show Room Conditioner after using Bucket Wash that has Carnuba Wax

Oh and before you accuse me of trying to shoot down what other folks on here use, remember it was my opinion and not anyone else'*. You use what you want. If you like Meguiars, use it...

I have a garage full of Meguiars and I personally think it is a waste of my time as well as Armor All

The majority of people on this forum don't have access to "professional only" detailing products. I have had access in the past and used "professional" products from Dealer Industries a few times. I have put their shine against Meguairs and, in my opinion, Meguiars comes out on top. I have used about everything you can buy at retail stores and as far as I'm concerned it'* the best you can buy. Our cars are daily drivers that get damaged from air pollutants, overspray, road grime and bugs. Maybe thats why we all stand behind the clay systems and their products. Have a wonderful day detailing

It is available to the general public and I can get it for you for the same price as all the other name brands, that being said you use what you wish, but I get better results in the same amount of time with less physical work. Cars that have pollutants, grime, and all the other stuff the daily drivers get. I wash the car thoroughly and buff it with Reviver and bingo.......no muss no fuss. I have 3 clay bars and haven't used them in the last 100 vehicles and I guarantee you Wisconsin plays serious havoc on these as does Minn....
