    Adam`s Polishes...by Chevy?

    I was looking at the Chevy accessories page (I mean at the Chevrolet website), and they are selling all kinds of Adam`s chemicals and accessories there (MF towels, brushes, applicators, etc.).

    It was weird/interesting. My apologies if this has already been brought up.

    Adams chemicals are really good. Just can get as good from AG at lower prices

    If you pay enough money, you become the preferred supplier. Just as Barrett Jackson switched from the Meguiars wipe down crew to mothers and to whoever they have now.

    Yeah, if I saw Meguiar`s or Mothers at the Chevy website, I wouldn`t have given it much of a thought. I just don`t think of Adam`s as a "well known national brand"...or to paraphrase Jason Sudekis from the outtakes at the end of Horrible Bosses..."they are now".

    Hey, chemical guys is at Walmart now. Makes me wonder how many people are buying this stuff and putting it on the shelf. Most people don`t even put air in their own tires now, nevermind the time it takes to polish a car.

    I`m guessing it`s more like a deep discount on the products (which I guess amounts to the same thing as "paying money"). It`s different from when Meguiar`s used to make some car company-branded products that said on the back in small print they were made by Meguiar`s. A little different but not that much different from the oil filler caps on some GM cars mentioning Mobil 1...I think that`s more about Mobil giving GM free factory-fill oil, rather than a GM endorsement of the product.

    I was looking at another automakers accessories page, can`t remember who`s now, and I noticed they offered the Chemical Guy`s line in a similar fashion. I found it surpising as I hadn`t heard of anyone doing it before. I didn`t realize GM had gone with Adams.

    Interestingly, a few years ago my wife won me a bucket of detailing stuff from a local Chevy dealership at a charity silent auction she attended. Based on some research I`m pretty sure the car shampoo and wheel cleaner were simply Chemical Guys products in "AC Delco" branded bottles. I`m glad to hear they moved up to Adams.

    I wonder if it is simply easier to be a retail outlet for an existing brand rather than having to go private lable or re-market existing stuff under their own brand.

    I can assure you, if it’s affiliated with Barrett Jackson it’s all about the money.

    Does Adams make their own stuff? I always assumed it was Chemical Guys or a huge chemical company.

    Mopar has their own branded line but I`m not sure who actually makes it for them.

    I noticed BMW has their own line of car care products. Anyone know who makes their stuff?

    NOT in *any* way arguing, but I heard the opposite from somebody I`d consider credible (decades in the industry).

    It can be hard to find out just who really makes what...not that I let that bother me; IMO good stuff is good stuff and the price is either OK or it`s not,the rest is just a question of where your money is going and whether you care.

    Wonder if it`s still AutoInt/ValuGard...they definitely used to make the MOPAR/DC stuff (I got a nice stash of their rustproofing stuff from a pal there when they changed the labeling).
