  1. My 2 cents, The company still has great products but its definitely a different company / brand than it was when i started using their products 8-9 years ago. IMO the second the outside investors came in, it was all going to change. Any time you take outside money from investors/private equity or the like, you have a new set of bosses running the company that care about one thing only - growth and return their investment. They are in it to hit a certain return target and then get out 99.9999% of the time. Given that a lot of people were buying all the limited stuff/mystery items, lets be honest it sold out really fast very often, its no surprise that a lot more of it got offered - remember growth and revenue. If I had to guess, the company will be sold soon as the revenues have clearly grown and are likely getting near the return the investors had targeted. Hopefully whoever buys the company maintains the quality. But realize, given the price they will pay, they will likely continue the current path, they will have to in order to maintain profitability. I'd find it highly unlikely that a buyer comes in and slashes a lot of the non chemical items unless they no longer make $$$$. Sorry if this sounds harsh, but its a business. Yes it has had a community around it, more so in the early days IMO, but in the end the dollar rules. A business Made in America, the exact thing that attracted so many in the beginning - a bit ironic.
  2. does anyone know the scent of matte detailer. i like it, but can't figure out what it is. thanks in advance.
  3. the pics do not match the description. buyer beware is correct. example pic - 4 ultra foam shampoo bottles; description - 3 pic - 9 detail spray; description - 6 i'm not going to count it all but when i noticed that i moved on immediately
  4. Brand new in box. First $25 takes it, willing to trade as well for microfibers, car wash, APC, glass cleaner, tire rubber, tire shine,
  5. product description says 9H, but the FAQ on page 1 still says 7H. Assume the product description is correct, right?
  6. i dont think its padded. looks like the seat and sides are the same plastic material
  7. i get it often, but i take it a compliment in that people see my cars are well kept and would like theirs to look so good as well. so it doesn't bother me.
  8. for matte, I'd go VRT. I prefer a bit of shine so I use Tire Shine. And, IMO Tire Shine smells MUCH better.
  9. Seriously, my biggest pointer would be to take your time. Realize there is a learning curve, don't get frustrated if you don't see magic immediately. You will take some time to perfect your technique. You don't have to get everything done all at once. One of the biggest mistakes I see first time detailers make is to rush through steps to be done when they feel like they are running out of time. then they have to go back dan do things a second time because they rushed. If you don't finish polishing the whole car in one weekend, thats OK. just wash the car the following weekend and finish then. If you are getting good results its very tempting to want to push through so it can be done in one shot . Enjoy the process. Enjoy the results and welcome to the addiction/club.
  10. "Detail spray works as a waterless wash with added wax" that is not correct. detail spray is NOT a cleaner, waterless wash is. OP, use Boost on your coated car. no need for a drying aid now that its coated. use boost as that's what it is for.
  11. Boost is designed to work with it, not detail spray. "Adam's Ceramic Boost is a cutting-edge new product that complements Adam's Paint Coating, adding an even slicker surface, more gloss, and prolongs the life of the ceramic coating. "
