Where to buy cleaning products?

This is especially for you Mid-Atlantic people: where do you buy cleaning supplies for your Porsche? Where I used to live, you could get some very high-end stuff at Pep Boys, but now that I'm living in Virginia, I can't find anything like that at Advanced Auto Parts (the local auto parts store) or Walmart, Target, etc.

So what is the premier auto parts store in the area that you can get good cleaners?

Thanks!

what color is your Boxster? (I'm assuming its yellow?)

I personally try to stick with imported products like Klasse and 1Z. I figure German Car, German Paints might as well stick with the products they use over there.
I'm not sure if Sonus is German too but i've been buying allot of their towels
and detailing sprays. The German stuff seem to me to be more concentrated and are removed much easier.

Domestic products like MOther's and Meguiars produce very similar results but I find they require a little more effort to get the same result. And I have to clean up excess residues more so than with the imported products. And overall I think Klasse and 1Z produce better results, I noticed this almost imediately. I think its the concentration of the prouct. I think in America we like to water down everything with extra "stuff" and put it all in bigger bottles. A small bottle of Klasse SG can last you 10 years!

I order almost all my stuff on Ebay. Get something like a Tequipment kit, Zymol, P21S, or Autoglym. I am in Chevy Chase MD, and there is not one place where you can get anyhting besides Armor All.
