Stopped by my local Chemical Guys store since they were having 20% off, and grabbed the Ceramic Hydro Wash & Quick Detailer to maintain the Hydroslick Hybrid Wax.

So far have been happy enough with CG's 'Hydro' range of ceramic products. However, it has the same complaint as all CG products. They're ridiculously overpriced for what they are. Videos like this comparing it to the comparable Meguiar's product highlight that fact.


If you're paying full price, you're looking at over $80 on the Chemical guys side for the hybrid wax, then the wash and detailer to maintain it. The equivalent Meguiar's products would run about $45, and come with bottles twice as big. CG product's are good, and sometimes even a little bit better, but not for double the cost.

I like their packaging but couldn’t pass up the sale on meguiars. It was $17 and some change for the same size as a $40 CG ceramic wax

I swear they spend more on their packaging and marketing than the products. I got the $40 bottle for $18 on Amazon Prime Day, which is the only reason I have it.

Same durometer (70) as the BFI stage 1.
And? When did I mention the rubbers D?


Cpe- makes 2 versions/stages you as typical ASSume someone else’s experience with thier harder model also means their street model will be extreme also.
