I have been the same way because one simple truth is that as long as you do SOMETHING to protect your paint, you're already well ahead of most folks and already doing your car some real justice.I mostly used Meguiar's off the shelf stuff in the past, but recently started to experiment with Sonax products and I liked them a lot. Will likely give AMMO a try in the future.
I have seen the sand filled mits and the poor usage of wash buckets, that alone scared me straight to finding my own detailer and touchless washes for my on-the-go clean up's.Most definitely as it just makes the most sense. There's no point in me taking delivery of it and then washing it and compounding myself when they'll still end up doing some sort of polishing on it before applying the Xpel anyhow.
Having seen how many dealerships clean their cars, it's horrendous lol.
