    Just wanted to see what everyone's opinion was about these brands that are seldom discussed on this and other forums...

    One Grand
    Gliptone (OTC)
    Sonax (NTS7)

    Ive used one grand paste wax, very durable but kind of blah in the looks department. Ive heard good things about Sonus clay and some of their other products. Someone told me Sonax wheel cleaner is really good, very safe. And Im always seeing these gliptone products at stores in my area, and was curious about them.

    Nica uses alot of Sonus pads, and i have heard good things about their clay.

    NTS7 makes cheap products. tried most all of them, not worth it. their foaming interior cleaner smells really good though

    NTS7 is the BMW soap that you get form the dealership. haha what nobody talks about anymore is Mothers.

    I think Sonax actually has a line they market under the Sonax name and not nts7, I forget where I saw it though.

    None of you guys have ever seen this Gliptone brand at autozone/straus/pepboys... Or is it just known to be crap? They have a full line of chemicals and stuff, even MFs and tools.

    I've heard that Sonus clay is pretty good, just as fine as Pinnacle green clay.
    Out of NTS7 I really like leather foam, cockpit cleaner, and Nano carnauba wax (smells like pure oranges). never like soap that mush, nor their QD spray wax (it streaks)...same is for a glass cleaner - streaks...

    someone also told me that sonax is the only BMW OEM approved wheel cleaner, because it is ph neutral...

    Although P21s and Sonax's soap seem similar. I think the BMW soap is 100% identical to NTS7's soap.

    Sonax makes some nice stuff and a while ago I was looking to try out some of their polishes.

    *cough* ....Chris let me know *cough*

    I think the Euro stuff blows the "NTS7" stuff out of the water...but no luck on samples yet.

    so no ones ever messed with the one grand stuff?

    Is there a better place to buy sonus clay from then autopia? I havent seen it anywhere else

    Autopia = sonus. I think they keep the clay exclusive, but I could be wrong.

    I thought about getting some 1grand...but then decided to get some products that I was familiar with instead. (haha guess which one?).

    I have used alot of the Sonax products (nano polishes, paint cleaner ,extreme wax and wheel cleaner). The nano polishes really do a great job as does the paint cleaner and the wax. I can't really compare it to anything other than the Meguiars products I have also used and find they both seem to have their strengths. The Sonax wheel cleaner works like a bomb though, spray it on dry and it leave it while you rinse the rest of the car. The brake dust literally washes off with a hose and if you use a pressure washer there is rarely any scrubbing or brush work needed. I have also yet to have any issues with polished wheels, ect and the product is also ph neutral as was mentioned and not acidic like most wheel cleaners ;-)

    some of the Gliptone products are very good...the one I like is the Leather products...and the QD....both very good products...and thier paste wax the non cleaner is nice also...they have a PRO chemical section also but I never used any...the 3 I mentioned are very good....I tried thier Pro glaze and was not excited over it....

    Now I heard from friends the tire and trim jel is very good...I never used it....and also the wheel wash....

    it's basicly a New England based product since its made in New York....

    Also the Shampoo sold at the BMW dealers is Sonax..but not the NTS7 stuff..its night and day...I bought a few bottles at the local BMW dealer and had a sample of the NTS 7 and they do not act alike...the BMW braand is much far as cleaning....suds..and final looks...

    the NTS7 did not produce much was fair..and did not leave the nice gloss like the BMW stuff...

    That is what I use before I found AG. I liked it! Now... I have learned so much and tired so may new products... I really am not sure if it was a good product. It would be nice to do a side by side comparison. If I do one in the spring I will post my result. mmmm... now where did I put that Liquid Glass... :shrug:... I might have pitched it :shrug:
