I thought since we've got a great sale (http://www.autogeek.net/newsletter-special.html) going for Griot's Garage Car Care Products through the weekend, I would share my top picks....:xyxthumbs:



Griots Garage BOSS G10 Air, 10mm Pneumatic Polisher (http://www.autogeek.net/griots-boss-g10-pneumatic-polisher.html)

The G10 Pneumatic Polisher was just announced yesterday, so it's an all-new product - an outstanding one at that. The build quality is superb, and it's one of the few pneumatic polishers that can actually rotate a 6.5 inch pad without breaking a sweat. If you've got an air compressor, this bad-boy is a must.

Griots Garage Ultimate Car Wash Bucket with Lid & Casters (http://www.autogeek.net/griots-garage-ultimate-car-wash-bucket.html)

Jeff Brown from Griot's Garage was generous enough to send me an Ultimate Wash Bucket a few months back, "just because," and I'm glad he did. This bucket is awesome to say the least. A lower grill allows heavy grit to sink to the bottom where it can't contaminate your Wash Mitt. An upper grill holds your wash tools. A molded-in measuring cup (patented design) allows you to dispense the perfect amount of Car Wash. Genius!

Griots Garage Rolling Cart with Outlets (http://www.autogeek.net/griots-garage-rolling-cart.html)

At the MTE show last month, I was walking by the Griot's booth and this red and black cart caught my eye. Not because it's stylishly cool, but because it has a 3 outlets built into the handle! The Rolling Utility Cart with Outlets is strong, durable, and light-weight. It won't stain, rust, scratch, or dent. Heavy-duty 4" casters make the cart easy to maneuver around the garage while a locking feature on two of the wheels makes quick work of securing the cart in place when it's time to work.

Griots Garage Wash & Wax 128 oz. (http://www.autogeek.net/griots-garage-wash-wax-128.html)

You might think it's strange that we only carry the gallon-sized refill of Wash & Wax. To be honest, the reason is because nobody bought the pint so we stopped carrying it. The gallon flies off the shelf, and for good reason - this stuff is fantastic. While it's not the most concentrated or sudsiest shampoo, it provides excellent lubricity and rinses very well. Unlike most wash and wax formulas, it does NOT leave a film on paint, glass, or plastic trim. My favorite feature is the anti-static ability, meaning it keeps your car cleaner in between washes better than any other car wash I've tried. A true hidden gem for sure.

Griots Garage Rubber Cleaner 35 oz. (http://www.autogeek.net/griots-rubber-cleaner.html)

I discovered Rubber Cleaner about four years ago when Griot's came out with their HD Wheel Cleaner. Wow what an outstanding tire cleaner. It also works exceptionally well for removing wax stains off plastic trim. It's also a steal at less than $30 a gallon.

Griots Garage Speed Shine Detailer 35 oz. (http://www.autogeek.net/griots-speed-shine-detailer.html)

You haven't experienced "dumby proof" until you've used Speed Shine. This high-lubricity detail spray is almost slick enough to be used as a waterless wash, and it buffs without leaving any streaks or smears. Use it on every exterior surface, including glass. Like most other Griot's Garage products, Speed Shine represents an outstanding value as well.

Griots Garage Interior Detailer (http://www.autogeek.net/griots-garage-interior-detailer.html)

Think of Interior Detailer as Speed Shine for the inside of your car. It can be used on all interior surfaces (including LCD screens). It's a great maintenance product for keeping your interior pristine. Plus, it also adds UV protection. Bonus!

Griots Garage Leather 3-in-1 (http://www.autogeek.net/griots-leather-3-in-1.html)

I've been praising this particular product since it was introduced about two years ago. This thick lotion cleans, conditions and protects coated leather in one step. It smells like the inside of a new Bentley, giving your not-so-luxurious interior the inviting aroma of a vehicle costing 10x as much. An absolute STEAL at $12.99 a bottle.

Griots Garage BOSS Perfecting Cream (http://www.autogeek.net/griots-boss-perfecting-cream.html)

Magic in a bottle is best used to describe BOSS Perfecting Cream. Last weekend I de-badged my WRX, and in the process I scratched the hell out of my trunk lid. To my surprise, not only did Perfecting Cream remove the light scratches and marring, but it wiped off with virtually no effort. Jeff Brown hit a home run with Perfecting Cream.

Griots Garage PFM Dual Weave Glass Towel, Set of 4 (http://www.autogeek.net/griots-pfm-glass-towels.html)

WOW! That's what I said aloud the first time I cleaned the inside of the back window in my WRX with a PFM Glass Towel. The 9" x 9" size is perfect for cleaning glass because you don't fold the towel, and the thick terry-weave cuts through film. Flip the towel over and give the glass a final wipe using the flat weave side.

Sorry Nick, have to disagree about the "Rubber Cleaner" being a top Griots pick...

However their "Rubber Prep" is definitely a best in category choice!

Ouch!

With nearly 50,000 square feet of warehouse containing over 70 brands and thousands of different products, disagreements over certain products are bound to happen. :)

Rubber Prep is a great product as well, I will say that. Every time I've used Rubber Cleaner it has done nothing but impressed.

The GG Interior Cleaner is a great product too; gentle yet strong enough.

I haven't used that one in a couple years. I'll have to re-visit it! :props:

I keep coming back to their wheel cleaner. It has been safe on even my uncoated wheels. As I remember it was once endorsed by BBS Wheels. It cleans well, leaves no residue and a great value when bought in a gallon.

I used the Griot's Liquid Gloss Poly Wax for the first time last weekend. It goes on very easily and comes off with no effort and zero dusting.
Looked great after applying! Looking forward to see how beading and durability is.

There could not be an easier sealant to use and made my pearl white paint look awesome.
