I was in Walmart today picking up a few things and decided to browse the detailing section. They now sell Chemical Guys stuff at $9 a bottle. The ones I remember seeing are leather conditioner,spray wax,and dash/interior conditioner-cleaner.

I saw that as well and was surprised.

I don't care for their products though.

They've come such a long way.

I remember back when Poorboys World was the "first" on the detailing scene with those types of sprays/waxes/etc.

Then someone found CG existed and the rumors started flying that Poorboys World was just rebranded CG. This is back when CG was not really known and only carried a limited collection of basic stuff.

I've never heard of CG's. Are their products supposed to be something special?

IMO no, for the most part their products are over-hyped boutique stuff. A couple of their washes are good, but I haven't found anything special.

I feel the same way.

AFAIK, Chemical Guys is just a branding company; they don't formulate their own products, and most of what they do have is overhyped by people that don't really know better.

Some of the CG products are pretty good. Their hybrid V07 detailer gets rave reviews. Most of their stuff is made by other companies and rebranded.

They cater to hobbyists accustomed to mail order.

I've never had anything bad from them. The "Black on Black" spray for vinyl trim is real good.

Nothing else I can think of stands out as really peerless. Most of the time there's something either a little better or a little cheaper.

I have their "Butter Wet" wax I am going to try in the spring/summer, and their dark gray applicator sponges are pretty good, having used them to apply the Wolfgang 3.0 Sealant before this winter.

their clay is fine.

where i think they have a decent niche is soap, if you want to lay out the $$$ for it--honeydew and glossworkz are great.

I use CG Jet Seal. It is easy to use and has amazing shine. Reviews are good on this product as well.
