    +1 for what Bob says, I started with a lot of megs products and after a very short time realised I had wasted a lot of money. I have very few megs products now except a couple of their compounds and polishes which I feel are very good.

    I don't think there is a certain range that is the best for everything. Also everyones list will be different. What do you want to do, Just keep your car looking good? If so this can be done on a fairly cheap budget. Or you could end up spending £1000's on detailing products and kit.

    Dunno why people have all of a sudden turned against Megs, nothing wrong with their range. Have used their Ultimate Compound and found it easy to use. I use their Endurance Tyre gel, the bottle lasts for ever. I have also used their Ultimate wash and wax which I thought was a very good car shampoo too. I also have Megs# 82 and 83, which I use with my Rotary Polisher. Cheap as chips and does the job perfectly.
