    I'd add detailers domain to that because Phil (the owner) is very knowledgeable and helpful.

    autogeek is good.

    Griots Garage used to be my go to, but they've fallen off my radar the past couple years.

    I too like Detailers Domain because they carry a lot of the products I use and I usually get them the next dat since we both are located in the same state.
    I bought products from Autogeek and while I don't knock the products, I am not crazy about the shipping. I am in NJ and autogeek is in Fla. I have placed orders as early as on a Monday expecting to get it it by the upcoming weekend and it didn't arrive till later the following week. This happened more then once so it just must be the shipping method he is using. Personally I would pay a few extra bucks to have it earlier.
    I have bought some products from Todd at Esoteric and will most likely be buying more from him because he is a sponsor here and puts out really good "how to" videos too.

    Detailed image, detailers domain, obsessed garage...I'd avoid Autodesk. Bad customer service and very slow shipping

    I agree with the comment about Esoteric....

    They use the products daily which is much more information for our use than a company relying on the manufacturers description or a "demonstration" under controlled circumstances.

    And the fact that they support F Chat is a positive....

    I'm from germany and also look for some new products for spring, but i would like to order in europe because of customs.

    Having bought a new polishing machine last year I would recommend to take a look at the homepages of Fein, Rupes, Flex, Festool, etc
    I bought a Fein polisher, not inexpensive but great quality. Having polished a 308, Testarossa and 550 Maranello I would buy again this one.

    I get pretty much all of my products from the ChemicalGuys.com

    I do all of my own detailing as well as for many others and the products they offer are top notch. They have amazing customer service and are always happy to help you get the right product for the job. They offer anything from a cheaper wash (still good product) all the way up to thousand dollar specialty waxes.

    Ive also used a few Fein products here in the states. They are obviously a little more expensive than other companies but you can definitely tell a huge quality difference! After a long period of continuous running it doesn't even get half as hot as a lesser product. Absolutely amazing.

    I made 2 orders from autogeek. They wont get my business anymore.
    Did a very poor job of 3 rd order of over 1500 so I just cancelled it and went somewhere else.
    I went as far to even talk to them to try tomstraighten it out and they did not even care to phone me back.

    I am a very easy customer but I still need a little bit of service. Very dissapointed.
