    Looks like Adam`s has come a long way....?

    Curious on Autopia`s opinion.

    When i first got into this Adams was a good all in one place to go...but as i learned more i saw the rest of the world of products.

    I`m hearing a lot of buzz about their new Ceramic Spray Coating and went back to their site and saw a lot of nice looking products.

    Obviously i`m sure there are better products out there for the money...but i`m curious how many of you guys dabble in Adam`s products.

    Thanks.

    One of his videos about "How to Wash" put me off his stuff. Demonstrated, uhm...a mindset that I don`t relate to.

    If there are better products for the same money I`d have to have some very compelling reasons to pass those up and spend the same for inferior goods. I even do business with [EDIT: let`s just say "companies with whom I have serious philosophical differences" ] when the same $ won`t buy me (at least) equivalent stuff.

    Well, don`t go by just what Yours Truly says

    Note that (well-respected) Autopians Sizzle Chest and Loach have had some very good opinions of some Adams products. There`s a recent thread about Adams Spray Coating that might be worth the dreaded SEARCH (might come up under just a simple click on "New Posts").

    I joined their facebook group for ```` and giggles and it amazes me how their fan base operates. They "collect" this stuff like it`s gold or silver, then post pics of their collection and brag about it. Yeah guy, I think your cool cause you have 6 bottles of buttery wax, 4 brilliant glazes, 6 cans of paste wax and countless gallons of stuff you`ll never use...and they just keep buying more. I don`t not like their products, I have some that I use, but the fan boys are what get me.

    Browse through the "Detailing 101 by Autogeek" on FB for some true lunacy.

    Eventually you`ll run across a self-proclaimed expert who often posts a pic of his McKees 37 shrine. Literally looks like every product they offer stacked in a nice, neat pyramid with a banner in the background.

    End of the day, everybody has their favorites, try a few things, find out what you enjoy...and use it in good health. And buy in the smallest bottle possible until you`re sure you like it.

    Yeah I get it. I can see collecting a lot off different products from different manufacturers to do tests to see what you like better but donít get stock piling vast quantities. I do like some of their polished and their DAís do seem to be nice.....also resisting buying their spray coating....

    Re: Looks like Adam`s has come a long way....?

    Iím gonna say I kinda like some of his stuff

    The heavy duty compound, will be trying again.
    Works well so far, also the bottle is user friendly and color
    coded to the pads. Which I would be interested in as well.





    Iím seriously considering this light set up



    I have the SK mini, which I love !



    I have this bag and itís a med. version of Griotís lg.
    Polisher bag. Same high quality.



    I will say he sure likes looking for items to brand.

    I have a good assortment of products from a bunch of different manufacturers, and there are some that I will repeatedly buy. I got 2 Adams mystery boxes a while back, and I like and use the car soap and interior detailer. Most of my supply is from poorboys, OPT, and meguiars. I feel itís a disservice to limit yourself fully to one brand.

    They have come a long way since they started. Very good products and excellent customer service. I use a few all the time. And yes, they have their followers/fans, but that great for them/him!

    I just don`t have the stomach to pay for all that branding and marketing on a consistent basis. I haven`t disliked the products I`ve tried though (soap, sealants, rinseless wash).

    Have you tried his stuff. What I have ordered has been great just spendy. Except for the snow foams havenít really found anything that stands out from CG. I think Griots would be a fairer comparison. Seems like CG has 10 products for every category where Adamís and griots seem to focus on one or two and do it well. Just a noobs point of view though.
