It does smell good, unfortunately that's where it's benefits stop.
I just don't like it. Blech.

The honeydew wasnt bad, just underwhelming, too little benefit to justify the cost. My soap of choice at the moment is EagleOne Nanowash I think it's called. Not too shabby honestly. Can be had in an actual store too vs online.

|xxMichaelAnthony||Yeah their air fresheners suck. I like Honeydew more than Gold Class but I got the gallon for free when I bought a foam gun from them. Natty's Red is a Poorboy's product.|

I've never been impressed with Chemical Guys stuff.
I have their Stripper Scent air freshener. It sucks. Had their honeydew snow foam it's no better than any other soap in my foam gun. Have their Natty Red Wax. Greasy and gross. Meh.
Just not impressed. It's cheap but mehhhh.

Give them a call and see if they will swap the VRP Dressing for Natural Shine Dressing and swap the Citrus Wash for Honey Dew or Glosswerkz. They will most likely do swap them out.
For your leather you can just use Woolite and water. Most people recommend a vinyl protectant for sealed leather. I use Chemical Guys Leather Conditioner. For the rest of your interior you can get All Clean+ and Silk Shine Spray Dressing from Chemical Guys. They also have videos on Youtube on how to use almost all of their products.

So originally I was looking at something like this.
I haven't taken your previous comments into consideration yet as I will need some time to shop around but do you have any comments on the kit above? Also for the record I do have leather interior.

For about $120 you can get a good set up from most auto parts stores.
To get you started.
Meguiars products -
-Smooth Surface Clay Kit
-Gold Class wash
-Ultimate Liquid Wax
-Natural Shine Protectant
-Ultimate Wash &Wax Anywhere (as a spray detail)
Stoner Invisible Glass
For tire dressing I would go online and get Chemical Guys Natural Shine Dressing. It will give you a perfect matte finish and lasts for weeks.
You can just go to Home Depot and get a 5 gal bucket. You can get Grit Guards online.
Most auto parts stores carry Viking brand micro fiber towels/wash mitts which are decent quality. You can also go to Costco and get on of the packs of micro fibers they sell which are a little better quality than Viking but still not professional quality. DO NOT use a beach towel!
When you get into polish, Megs Ultimate Polish and Ultimate compound are really good. Since you're starting from new paint, you probably won't ever need a compound. You can do every thing by hand but if you want to get into machine polishing, get a Porter Cable 7424 and Lake Country pads.
Here are a few websites for products.
