    Their stuff is just ok. I had been using the "hybrid wax" but I'm pretty sure that most of it is just getting absorbed by my microfiber cloth and seems to only last a few days. I put some meguire's on this weekend and I can immediately see that it's better.

    Yeah...that^^^^
    Chemical guys makes some decent car washes, I’ve used the honeydew snow foam wash for a while and I’ve still not found anything that works better in a foam gun or cannon. It rinses clean and and washes well but that’s about the only CG product that’s touching any of my cars or the taco. No wax is worth even $50 never mind a grand. I’ve used Meguire’s now forever, no Meg’s product, either the pro mirror glaze or one of their off the shelf products at walmart, have ever let me down and they are always fairly priced according to their abilities.
