Griot's Garage Products

Has anyone ever used Griot's Garage car care products. I did a google search and it seems to have good reviews and by looking at their prices it seems they are pretty competitive to Adam's. I am trying to do some homework before dishing out $200-$300 on a car care kit. Any reviews on Griot's would be nice. Please no reviews on Adam's. I have read plenty. I know they are great Thanks again

I have the same question. I have heard that Adams is better. I will keep an eye on this thread to see what others have to say.

I got black. That sucks to hear that it still turns out bad. I use the softest clothes and still I get spider web look. Hoping to buy some products to help this problem out. Thanks for the response jsharp

I have used Griot's. It works, but you will need all machine polish 1,2, and 3 if you want to remove swirls. I like the buffer though. It is really good. I tried Griot's because it is cheaper and made in Indiana (where I live.) I like they're clay and speed shine. It works well. I'm going to try more stuff for Christmas, do a full review and correction in the spring, but for what its worth. I'd go ahead and give it a try. The most expensive thing is a buffer which is a one time purchase. I also enjoy the foam sprayer or gun whatever you want to call it. I have heard that the car wash is second to none also, but I haven't tried it because I have Adam's car wash and a bunch of others to use up.

Also if I was you, I would go with Adam's wash pads. Griot's is fine products, but they don't have washpads that compare to Adam's for the price. In my other thread that said I was unsatisfied with Griot's, it was their customer service that I was talking about. They have since made up for that .

Reason why I said no Adam's reviews is because I see tons of reviews for them which I know they are good from what others say. I just happen to see a Griots ad and wanted to know if anyone on here had used them. I never seen a personal review stating someone switching. I have heard alot of people saying they have used both. Maybe not a bad idea. Guess it depends on your budget. Thanks everyone for the reviews so far.
