    Griots Car Care

    Anyone use this? I got a complete car care kit: Clay Bar, Clay Bar Spray, Detail Spray, Wheel & Tire Cleaner, Car Polish, Car Wax, etc as a gift for X-mas.

    I'm not asking for anyone to compare to other brands (ie:Zaino, Turtle Wax, etc), so don't chime in with those comments. Just asking if anyone has used this product line before and their feedback. Thanks.

    this is close to what all I got:

    All I can say is that you'll be happy with Griots. Start detailing and post some pics!

    Griots is what I use on both of my cars.

    You will be happy - especially if you use a random orbital buffer.

    Griots makes waxes, polishes and paint sealant.
    Plus, they make all kinds of other detailing items.

    I applied their paint sealant on my 02 RS 2 months ago. It is still holding up strong. The sealant goes on easy and wipes off easier than any other product that I have used.

    I've heard nothing but good things about their products. Never used it personally, but I may someday. Let us see the results once you've applied it to your car.

    What ^^ said. Good stuff, some can be a little pricey as I think they cater to people with european imports.
