I jumped in with both feet a few months back when I bought my Australian made Pontiac, and I've been super pleased with the Chemical Guys. Their trim gel turned everything that had greyed back to black with the exception of the washer nozzles on the GTO. I turned bumper and window trim as well as plastic door handles on my 1999 Suburban shiny black again with the gel. Super cool.
I've been using their leather cleaner and conditioner on the suburban and gto as well. Even for 15 year old leather in the Suburban, it's nice and soft again.
I've been using their car wash product off and on for months. I can't say I've noticed much difference between that and Meguiars car wash soap...
I used their clay bar and lube and things went pretty smooth on the goat. Hadn't clayed a car in a while, so I may have forgotten enough about previous experiences to be able to compare, but it seemed quick and easy.
I haven't done much with their paint protection products yet, but I'll probably get the sealant whenever (if?) we get a PCP Unlimited. I've stuck with the piles of Meguiars polishes and waxes I already had on the shelf. When I use up some of those, I may try some Chemical Guys since I hear good things.
For wheels, I've been using Sonax lately and not Chemical guys. Pretty pleased there, but I may look to see if CG has a product there as well.
Oh yeah, the best stuff! "Chemical Guys SPI_993_16 - Nonsense Colorless & Odorless All Surface Cleaner"... I have never had a clean tire cover on the Jeep since I put it on until I got this. No car soap cleaned it. This stuff worked great! I used it on the carpet, the vinyk/plastic like door panels, the carpet-like door panels, etc on the Suburban. Wow. The kids try their best to make that second seat a mess, and the Chemical Guys seem to thwart them at every turn.
I'm in CO so we do get some cold, but I don't mess with the cars when it's too cold, so I can't tell you how the products work below about 60 degrees...
