The products work pretty well. I wouldn't say it's something I would prefer over others though.

ive been using mostly griots for.about 6 years now

Most of their products are easy to use but less potent than others available.
Not a fan of their clay (prefer clay magic) and their polishes are very mild.
the daily use type products: interior cleaner, leather care, speed shine & spray on wax are all good products and a good value.
the random orbital is a must for a black car IMO - definite time saver and you won't burn the paint if you use (& keep clean) their foam pads.
show some before & after pics!

It depends on what you buy from them.

I am a Menzerna fan for compounds and polishes. GG's spray on wax is pretty good but can have streaking issues unless its used as a drying aid. I really don't use liquid wax unless its Collinite 845. Im more of a paste wax kind of guy. Clay is clay except for aggressiveness of it. The speed shine is pretty good, but again, a QD is a QD. I use ONR diluted because its a lot cheaper to use and does the exact same.
