Meguiar's new ultimate line is also discounted 25% off. Although I've seen meguiar's stuff discounted more before. AG hdwax is on clearance at walmart in the states for $20 or even $10 at some stores, if you have connections down there pick some up. It is a nice wax.

I'd only get their CWC and Instant Tyre Dressing on that list. Possibly their leather stuff too as I heard its good, but my fake leather doesn't need it lol
and ofcourse AG HD Wax which I still have so I wouldnt need to stock up on that at all lol.
dont get their carwash, didnt like it at all.

^wish i read that sooner! i bought the carwash it was only 10 bucks for a 1L bottle.
thought i'd give it a whirl.
ag hd wax was 37.49+tax at cdn tire

i also have a big jug of ag cwc at home which i love.

the only thing i hate about ag products is their spray bottles, but not a big deal, just go buy a proper spray bottle from a dollar store.

^ thanks for correcting me on the price, I got too happy from all the AG goodies I bought lol

I bought the shampoo too, for $10 you get a litre, can't hurt to try it out.

I like how their bottles are rectangular, saves space in my bins, just switch out the sprayer.

I heard the super resin was really good, hopefully I can make it to the grandview location before it closes tomorrow.

For $15 it's worth giving it a shot at least

Super Resin is like their sealant + glaze, heard good stuff but lacks in durability.

CWC is really just a wheel cleaner, so it shouldnt last lol, yes it has polymers to protect the rims for a bit but that only lasts less than a week
the tire dressing should be fine tho, you just gotta spray and let the tires soak it up then go for more layers.

I think he means it runs out quick.
Ken told me you can dilute it 1:1 and so I did and it works great.

there were like 2 or 3 left at the No.3 Road CT when i went this morning.
I went in and came out with nothing cuz even on sale, the CWC is more expensive than in 5L and the rest i still have a bunch of/I have better alternatives
was disappointed i didnt see their leather care stuff tho, might of bought some just for the heck of it cuz my boss told me its good.

If you guys want Meguiars shampoo, go check out Costco, 1gallon of NXT shampoo for $13 as I remember. It is just at the doorway at the richmond location.

pretty much.
wash down
clay bar
super resin

on maintenance washes
wash down
detailer

but i highly doubt the super resin will last so you'll prolly be applying super resin every wash lol

also if you've got a soft clear coat, you may see scratches from the mothers clay bar as its not the finest out there and is known to scratch clear coats.

thanks! i had polyurethane coating applied last year and should have sealed the clear coat pretty well. it looked like a brand new paint job, but after a year you can see swirl marks again

swirls will always get there if u use bad washing methods. actually even with a good method, you will still induce swirls but far less

starts with a good wash pad + good soap + grit guard in bucket (and 2 even) + a good drying microfiber or a leaf blower
i use the Gtechniq Merino Mitt as my wash pad and its uber soft, costs like 25~26 bucks but well worth it.

Super resin polish did a decent job cleaning up my swirls.

I even dared to use it on my jdm window visors got rid of the nasty haze on it.

I just need to pick up a plastic polisher to get rid of the left over swirls on it.
