    Please give me your take on which one is a better product from clay bar to compound, polish and wax.

    Just started using Collinite 845. I guess an alternative to both of those products.

    Both are good products. I have used both. But I prefer Adam's products over them.

    I'd take the Meguiars. They have some really nice polishes and compounds (105 &205).
    Are you doing this by hand or with a machine.

    I prefer Meguiars over Mothers. I've had good luck with their M205 polish, and I really like their Ultimate Quik Wax.

    Dito. 845 is awesome stuff. I used the Meguiars clay kit and performed well, I would recommend especially if you can find a special on it like I did.

    im familiar with some of meguires products and i feel i have good results with them. when researching priducts on some detailing forums their products come up quite often.

    i also just started using the collonite 845 wax it was easy to apply and remove and has produced a nice slick surface that really beads up when it rains

    Meguires clay bar is great. I don't have any experience with their waxes except the NXT 2.0, which sucks ass by the way. A week after I claybarred and waxed it with the 2.0 (by hand), there was a big rainstorm - and NO beading whatsoever...absolutely none. It even felt unwaxed - in fact, it squeaked when I rubbed my finger across the hood. Terrible stuff and a waste of money.
