I use Adam's Polishies car wash. It's a nice thick soap that gives you great suds and coverage. I know people that work for Meguiar's and even they say if your not using Gold Class or NXT (which is the same quality as Adam's) it sucks. I use Adam's on show and magizine cars and they look perfect like the paint is colored glass.

I buy my stuff from a place called 4 star products.He actually makes all the soapes and waxes in house so what I use is basically formulated for what i want, the guys is like a scientist knowing all the chemicals and what they do. Its kinda cool.

I really like the 4-star auto wax I purchase.

Who said that Adam's car wash is as good as Gold class? Is that opinion or fact?

I got Mr. Clean Auto car wash for my b-day last year, and i really like it.
My question though, would it be worth the money to use that to soap my car, then use a bucket of warm water with another brand of soap in it with a sponge. So as to get the benefits of both? Or is that just a little redundant?
