    Re: HELP ME MAKE UP MY MIND

    I chose the G15. Not just because it’s cheaper but for the lifetime warranty. If a product is good the manufacturer should stand behind it. One year warranty is not good enough for me so my decision wasn’t that hard to make.

    to add to Roger's post..

    these new polishers (G15 & G21) have set the bar even higher (features/innovation, comfort/ergonomics, torque/power, etc.) and this is only their 2nd gen, not 3rd or 4th (with continuing/climbing higher price tag). add in GG's top notch, responsive, and No BS/Nonsense customer support to boot (some companies make excuses and/or blame the customer if they have an issue/problem with their product(s) and may not even reply back (or at all) if you try calling/e-mailing them).

    most companies only offer a one year warranty with their polishers (what if you only use it a few times a year?) that goes pretty fast. you will be paying even more money later down the road if a problem arises to an already expensive initial purchase. spend your money wisely and choose a company that will have your back and guarantee/support for their product(s) 100% unconditionally...



    WE GUARANTEE IT
    Griot's Garage was built on high expectations, which is why everything we sell is covered by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee and Lifetime Guarantee against defect.
    We strive for perfection in everything we do so you always... Have fun in your garage!®

    Re: HELP ME MAKE UP MY MIND

    my G15 is already in the shopping cart!!!

    The fact that one can customize the counter weight to balance the machine (gives me more pad choices).....does it for me.

    Went through same dilemma, went with the older G15. At first a little FOMO because i don’t like to do things half way. After using it a few times I have zero regrets. I spent the extra money on a 3” polisher.... you’ll definitely need one with a 15mm

    Thank You.

    Just curious - what kind of research did you do before choosing to go with either a RUPES BigFoot 15 or a Griot's Garage BOSS 15?


    Both companies offer great tools, pads and products, so yeah, the choice can be a tick difficult, this is why it's important to do some research. I would throw this out there that one of the benefits to attending any of the car detailing classes I teach is that you get lots of hands-on time with both these brands as "systems".
