Rubbish, no better than any of the waxes from Mcguires ot Colonite 845 (in my books by far the best wax ever made).

That's because there are people much, much more stupid than those who will pay $2000 for some wax.

It's the ingredients. It's made from the tears of 2000 virgin seals.

People who earned their money won't spend it on this BS.
People who inherited it might. A fool and his money are soon parted...

I was noticing a lot of the waxes on the site are really pricey. Marketing BS at its finest.

Now THAT my friend is another story. That wax was derived out of the condensation from angel farts. That wax is blessed. Big difference. ;D

Chemical guys is notorious for releasing a billion products that do the same thing.

I've had numerous customers complain about their products and services.

Now Greg who use to be the face of them, now run Masterson's Car Care who apparently has been around since 1946 LOL.

Just remember this, just because the price is so HIGH, does not mean its an amazing product.

I agree they've been coming out with so much product that it gets confusing which product to buy. But I give a thumbs up on their dirt cyclone for 2 bucket wash method.

Yeah there's a large enough segment of the population that believes expensive = better.

I think high quality towels/technique/garage lighting would be a much much much better investment.
