Care to elaborate?
Now that my D103 bundle (2 gallons and 32 oz spray bottle) just showed up last week for $26.24 shipped.....!
I have only used Adams and Blackfire APC in the past but could not pass up the value of D103 on black friday.

I lump APCs into two categories, foaming and non-foaming. Foaming works good for somethings, and non-foaming for others. I know that you have heard me say I love me some D101 for various reasons so I'm not going to elaborate on that.

But for OPC and D103, their uses are for the most part identical. However, I feel much safer with OPC on leather and just about any surface. I also feel like the cleaning ability is a little better (but that could be a mental effect with the $$ I spent talking on that one as I've never done a side-by-side test but basing on experience).

So given that I'm going to go with D101 and OPC, which are the best in their respective categories, I have no more need for D103.

Certainly what you got is a great deal though, and maybe (if ever) you finish those gallons up, you might try OPC. Smells better too

Good deal, I wanted to go with OPC but just couldnt ignore the price difference. Ill ask again when I get ready to order more in 2016

Good read, wish I found it yesterday as Detailed image had 20% off for Christmas. Do they do something similar for new years? Any codes for Car Pro?

Yup, taking advantage of that. I spent a few dollars at both places today on your recommendations, I have to say they both have top shelf customer service and were great to deal with!
