been using meguiars for years, anything else good out there?

so i've been using meguiars products for years, and i'm really happy with them. i was wondering if there's any other brand that has a good reputation for quality automobile care products? i want to experiment and i've been thinking about trying zymol. has anyone used their products? i've also noticed that zymol is a little more expensive than the most other brands by a few bucks. what do you think peeps? oh and by the way... target has some meguiars, turtle wax, and zymol gift box's on sale (50% off) for around $10-$17.50 right now, because they're on clearance! hurry before their all gone!! everyone on here deserves a bargain!!!

Griots. It's a little pricy, but totally worth it. I've tried pretty much every product out there in the past 12 years I've been driving, and the Best of Show wax from griots is the best I've used. I switched from Zaino to Griots. http://www.griots.com

Well your really gonna have to wrok for that quality i started off that way so its much easier. YOu need to get a meguiars car conditioner/wash, clean it, the go over it with paint cleaner, then a deep crystal polish then the deep crystal carnuba wax. Buff that biatch out. If it still doesnt feel like you want it too next time you was do a clay bar then skip the paint cleaner then go straight for polish and then wax.

Meguiar's #7 show car glaze for that wet, shiny look.
Meguiar's endurance tire shine.

I've been using #27 yellow wax, but I've heard KIT wax will last a year. I'm gonna give it a try when it gets warm.
