Hey Mike that was a great lesson on detailing.

Im glad I spent my entire saturday learning the 5step process.

Wash -evaluate
Surface Prep

Before, I used to just wash and wax.

But after that beautiful demonstration on the GGP IS300.

I had second thoughts about the way I maintain my car. Thanks to your expertise and brief lessons on how-to use perfect technique I became more interested in detailing my car more often. btw I enjoyed the class and would like to attend the next time around!!! I may speak for other is300.netters when I say "When is the next class?" haha

It was fun, a great experience, learned new things.. Overall: 10 out of 10

oh and I also want to thank you Mike for the food and drinks!!!

thnx alot for gettin me on the list. it was really fun and was a great experience. learned alot about detailing and found out what i was doing wrong.

mike you did good. nice to have someone teaching that can also make you laugh lol

Thanks again Mike and the Meguiars team for hosting this meet! I dont think there is a better person to teach this class. You are the best Mike! Your knowledge and expertise we displayed very well.

The information I gained has forever changed my outlook on paint care! Also, thanks for using my car as the demo car. I cant believe how simple it was to remove all those nasty swirls in my paint. Technique is the underlying factor (and Meguiars products of course).

Thanks a lot for the free gifts and the coupon we got to order products...Cant wait for my DA Polisher to arrive at my doorstep.

I will definately attend next year!

thank you for the wonderful class this past saturday! even though i've attended before, i STILL learned something new!!

mike, your knowledge of car and paint is amazing! i'll try to memorize the 5 steps.

thank you meguiar's for the warm hospitality and goody bags! i can't wait to try those quik detailer wipes on my car.

thanks again for hosting the class, and for providing us lunch! and thank you for the 10% discount on our orders. i know a lot of us took advantage of that "coupon". =)

Hey mike! Thanks for all your wonderful tips and help. You truly know your stuff about paint and such. I would take my car to have you beutify the thing but after this class you've shown me how to do that myself haha. Thanks for the goodies and all that you have done to help us out. It was a little long but the tools you taught us to use really helped. Last but not least i would like to emphasize that when using products be sure to put a little passion behind the pad! haha Mike you also make good jokes

Mike and Meguiar's,

Thank you for presenting the seminar and providing us lunch on January 28, 2006. This is the second time I have attending one of these classes, and still learn something new each time.

I believe there will be a few more sparkling IS's around OC/LA and San Diego of the attendees who will be applying the techniques learned this past weekend.

As others have expressed, thanks for the knowledge, lunch, hospitality and the product (free and discounted). :xyxthumbs

Mike and the Meguiars Team!

Thank you for spending time and sharing with us again the great new products and the wealth of detailing knowledge. I learned a few more things from the last class. Thank you! We'll see you again when we get the ClubLexus class rolling! The perks of living in Southern California! :)

Hi Mike

It was a awesome class. We learned alot of useful information that would benefit us. Thanks for answering all of our questions. I have been itching to detail my car after the class. This weekend I am going to clay and use my pc with #80, and #21. happy detailing:)

Thanks again we all appreciate it!

Mike and the Meguiar's staff,
The pizza was great! ;) Thanks for spending the Saturday with us teaching proper techniques and dispelling some of the myths regarding automotive paint care. The class was very informative and your patience fielding our questions is appreciated. While I've visited your forum in the past I had no idea that the "information station" contained so much useful information; I know I'll personally be spending hours reading everything there. Thanks again and I look forward to the next class.


BTW, Thanks Mike for the sample of M21 Synthetic Sealant; I can't wait to use it on my car. If I like it as much as I think I will, then I'll be buying that 64 oz. jug that I keep resisting. LOL.

Pretty much the same thing everyone else posted. The event was great, I can't believe something like that was free.

Mike, you are the guru of gurus.

Thanks again, it was sooooooo worth it.
