Griot's supplies

Was getting ready to order an item or two from Griot's Garage and was wondering if there might be other item(s) that would be good candidates to consider. Not sure, but I might also get cheaper/free shipping over a certain purchase amount.

Anyway, are there supplies that you get specifically from them, ie that you don't pick up from Autopia, Autogeek, etc? Just curious..

Too many to list. Some that are harder to find elsewhere is lug nut brush, carnauba wax, also I buy all my liquids in the galan containers with the pumps. Pca members get a discount on all liquids. Been a minute since I ordered but I think the discount code is pca20.

If you are an Amazon Prime member, Amazon carries a lot of Griots products.

I order most of my stuff from Chemical Guys or Autogeek. I'm not sure I could tell the difference between any of the stuff.

Since you recommended it on another post, I ordered some. It just arrived, and I am looking forward to trying it out.

The interior cleaner is the best I have ever used by far and I think it smells great. Not had much luck with the speed shine or quick detailer. Both seem to leave a haze that is difficult to remove and concerns me Im causing swirl marks applying pressure to remove.
