Meguiar's is a brand that is known for quality, and its products are used in many showrooms and garages. They have some of the best products out there.
In this review, we will go over one of their car care kits, the MEGUIAR'S G55032SP Complete Car Care Kit. They also have other car care packages like the MEGUIAR'S G55012 Classic Wash & Wax Kit, which is also good.
Of course, there are also competing sets from other brands such as kits from Armor All and another one from Chemical Guys, which are also well-known brands.
Let’s go over what is included in the MEGUIAR'S G55032SP, and also the pros and cons of this all in one car care kit.
What’s in the Box?
This complete car care kit will contain a total of 12 items in the box. Note that you will get ten types of premium Meguiar’sproducts in this kit.
According to the manufacturer, it will contain all of the things you need to clean, protect, and maintain all of the surfaces of your vehicle. They have pretty much included everything from the essentials like cleaning and restoration to auto detailing in this pack.
Check out what you’ll be getting if you buy it:
Package dimensions are 12.6 x 9.5 x 8.6 inches – that’s how big the box is going to be when the delivery guy hands it over to you. It’s not going to be that big and it will be slightly heavy thought weighing 8.29 pounds.
1. Gold Class Car Wash Shampoo and Conditioner
This comes in a 16-ounce bottle. Now, according to experience, this bottle will last a long time. Some customers even claim that they were able to wash and detail up to four or five cars with just one bottle.
This shampoo and conditioner combo for your car lifts away contaminants and dirt off the exterior surface of your car. Notice that it preserves the wax protection that you may have applied on your car beforehand.
Note that you run out of this shampoo/conditioner product quickly. I wish they shipped this in a bigger bottle.
2. Quik Detailer
This also comes in a 16 oz. spray bottle. The shampoo and conditioner bottle may be the first to go from this kit since you’ll use it on the entire body of your car. Well that also depends on how often you wash your car. But if you don’t want to do a full body clean up, you can do some spot cleaning and detailing—and that is what the Quik Detailer is for.
This spray bottle will last a bit longer than the shampoo slash conditioner bottle. It also removes the contaminants from your car’s surfaces. You can use it to remove dirt and grime minus the scratches — this one you can use on the glass as well.
3. Quik Interior Detailer
It should be noted here that the Quik Detailer is only for your car’s exterior just like the shampoo/conditioner bottle. If you want to work on your car's interiors, then the Quik Interior Detailer is the product in this kit that you should be using.
Again, this one comes in a 16 oz. bottle—well most of the bottles in the MEGUIAR'S G55032SP Complete Car Care Kit come in that size—oh , except for two other bottles that are 10 ounce ones (we'll get to those in a minute). Just remember that the Quik Interior Detailer is for the interior and the other Quik bottle is for the exterior.
4. Gold Class Liquid Wax
A lot of car owners have plenty of good things to say about carnauba wax from Brazil. In fact, it is the preferred wax of Concours enthusiasts and car collectors—so that you know.
It gives your car that distinct rich and warm glow. Note that it doesn't sit on your car's paint. It penetrates it, transforming it that is why you get deep shimmer. On top of that, your car’s paint also a layer of protection like no other.
Gold Class Liquid Wax is formulated using carnauba wax and polymer wax. This formula not only gives long-lasting protection to the paint, it also nourishes it.
5. PlastX Clear Plastic Cleaner & Polish
This is one of the 10-ounce bottles in the package, yes, slightly smaller. This one is applied to plastic surfaces to give them back their original optical clarity. You can also use them to remove any light defects.
6. ScratchX 2.0
This is my go-to product for spot-fixing paint defects. It removes surface contaminants, light stains, blemishes, and even fine scratches. It's excellent for glossy paints and also clear coats.
7. Clay Bars
The package also comes with a couple of clay bars which bonds to the paint as you remove surface contaminants. You use these with Quik Detailer to make your paint look smooth.
8. Endurance Tire Gel
The package gives high-gloss protection, keeping the tires black and with a dark shine.
9. Microfiber Wash Mitt
Obviously you use this mitt when you shampoo and condition your car.
10 and 11. Microfiber Towels and Applicator Pad
Note that items 9, 10, and 11 are washable and reusable. The applicator pad is used for applying waxes and polishes. The microfiber towels are used for applying the finishing touches on your car.
So What’s Wrong with This Kit?
An extra wash mitt and more shampoo/conditioner would have been great since a lot of customers would use those more than the other products. But there are a few more other things missing from this “complete car care kit.”
It would have been perfect, but did you notice that Meguiar's conveniently forgot to include a polish? Sure, they have PlastX, which is polished, but that is primarily for the headlights and plastics.
Don't they have a car polish? Oh yes, they do, it's the Meguiar'sUltimate Polish. You can Google it if you want. It sort of baffles me why didn’t they didn’t include that in this kit.
On top of that, this package doesn’t even have a wheel cleaner. Oh yes, Meguiar's has a wheel cleaner product too. Well, apart from all of that, the MEGUIAR'S G55032SP Complete Car Care Kit is truly a fantastic product—you just have to purchase the missing products separately.
