Default Car Care products

I'm sure there is a thread on it somewhere here, but I'm too lazy to look. Anyone else using the Griot's garage products? I picked up one of their exterior detailing kits with a $100 gift card I received from Dell, and have been nothing but satisfied.

I purchased my 05 A4 a few months ago for a good deal ($6500) because it was in rough shape. The paint felt rough, and lacked gloss, and the interior was in pretty rough shape (mostly just dirty). After using the Griot's clay+speed shine, and a wax job, my paint is now smooth as glass. I wish I had taken some before after shots, as I can't even believe the difference myself

I use their DA polisher, pads, waterless wash kit, clay kit, and paint sealant and have been very satisfied. Their prices are maybe a bit higher than other specialty detailing products, but they seem to work well. I've got some of the long-lasting tire dressing, but haven't used it on tires yet (put a dab on my rubber trim and liked it so far). I received a bottle of their Best of Show wax, but ended up giving it to a friend, since I only have daily drivers, and the Best of Show is really more of a garage-queen wax.

I recently picked up some Meguiar's clay and don't like it as well as the GG stuff, so will go back to GG when the Meg's is finished.

My favorite wheel cleaner at the moment is Meg's All Wheel and Tire--almost as good as Sonax for 1/3 the price. Also, I can't say enough good stuff about Armor All Wheel Protectant, which when used on absolutely dry wheels does a phenomenal job of preventing brake dust build up.

I've noticed that brake dust is my car's worst enemy, maybe I should check that out. I'm sure the fact that my brakes are shot doesn't help matters much either though.

I've very successfully used an unlikely product for spot cleaning in the interior and have been sometimes shocked with the results. Amway sells a product LOC, that is safe for use on anything that is safe for water. In this example is was on a premoistened towel. My wife placed a coffee cup in the holder of her brand new car at the time, a maxima and in doing so her Espresso shot up through the hole and onto the light tan ceiling liner. I was mortified and told her we were leaving it be in fear my efforts would spread it into a larger blotch. Years and 3 kids later I found myself eyeballing the still pristine espresso and decided it was time to do something with it. I was floored when I used the towlette and literally every single trace was eliminated, so much so you could not tell where it had been. Since then I have used this product on many surfaces with great success. It's safe and worth a try.

Lol I wondered who it would be. Yes I did while the seat was unbolted. Yu, I think the coils will get handled before that
