- Worth every penny Review by SJC96GT
- These products are very well suited for most people Review by 13lstuner
I finally got the chance to try out my new products today. So here is my honest review of them.
APC concentrate 10/10?
The reason I put a question mark is because I haven't put it through anything too terrible yet. It easily got off my old tire dressing(6:1 dilution),cleaned my wheel wells(6:1 dilution)(it had been two weeks of DD), and it cleaned my dash after the tint shop left water spots everywhere when I got my windsheild tinted (14:1 dilution).
Handled all of that with ease so for everything I've used it for it gets the .
Tire Dressing & Conditioner 10/10!
So as a disclaimer to this portion. I prefer a shinier tire, not wet looking, but not satin either. This tire shine, when not cut with water, provides my preferred amount of shine. No sling when I let it dry for a couple of hours, and no runs or anything bad that I can associate with this tire shine. I haven't used this for trim yet, but I'm sure it will function just as well. I have no clue as to the durability of this stuff yet, but it would take an amazing product for me to not just reapply once every two weeks. I personally like the approach of this tire shine better. Providing higher gloss and allowing people that want less to just cut it with water, instead of making people who want more gloss to have to apply multiple coats allowing each to dry.
Extreme Suds Balanced Wash 9/10
I really do like this soap. Great lubricity, and provides a lot of suds. I feel that this soap is more of a "you can't go wrong with it" soap. It does above average in the bucket, and it also does above average in the foam gun.
My car was extremely filthy when I washed it today. I parked my car, stupidly, in an area around my gym that had construction going on, so it got covered in clay dust and then it rained. So my car was the worst it has been in a long time. The soap when used in the bucket and the gun put no scratches into the paint that I can see, so bravo for that.
With that said, I still prefer AMMO foam paint cleanser in my bucket. It glides ride off of the paint, and leaves almost not suds behind making rinsing a breeze.
I also don't think you can go wrong with this soap in a foam gun(I do not have a foam cannon so I don't know how it would do with one), but I feel as though Adams soap clings to the paint better. Again there is nothing at all bad about this soap, it is just what I have noticed so far, if my opinion changes I will definitely come back and say so.
Polymer Detail Spray 11/10
My personal favorite product out of the ones I received. Just amazing in every way.
I purposefully allowed water to dry on my trunk lid, and my house has some pretty bad hard water. This detail spray took every single spot of with ease. Honestly, much easier than Adams detail spray. I may be drinking the kool-aid, but that's my honest opinion.
I like the light blue color that it is, it doesn't stain my dry me crazy towel like Adams spray does. I know that I can just cut down the amount of detail spray which I did, but this stuff allows me to use more and not stain my towel.
I saw a review from another person stating that this product took extra buffing to get off, I do not feel that way. It takes just about the same effort to buff off as adams(I keep comapiring to Adams because it was my previous favorite). It is also a polymer detail spray, making it have a higher amount of protective properties than a carnauba based detail spray.
The smell.... It literally smells like I am detailing my car at the beach, right outside of the SCG HQ. I don't base my product purchases on smell, but this could almost make me do it.
Just one tip SCG, put this scent into air fresheners for car and sell them.
All in all, I feel as though these products are very well suited for most people. The tire conditioner and detail spray are now my two favorite products in their respective categories. APC will be a highly regarded product, but unless it outperforms Megs d103 in harder tasks, that will be the one I prefer because of cost. The soap is great, I will probably always prefer AMMO in my bucket, but it may grow on me more in the foam gun. I guess we will just have to see. (Posted on 6/25/2014)
