What a cracking morning at Meguiar's Garage.

I had wanted to meet Mike Philips for all manner of reasons, not least of which is the exemplary way in which he runs this forum - it's as good an example of how an internet site is to support a product strategy as I can recall - people wander in here clueless and wander out educated in the Meguiar's process which makes them evangelists for the cause.

Anyhow, I learned how to make my cars look good with a wonderful combination of knowledge, product and passion for the job ....

I can't wait to try out my polisher!

Great class

Like the terminator, I'll be back

Thanks to everyone that attended today especially our long distance travelers, a couple from Ontario, Canada and a young man that drove down from San Francisco!

Thank you for the 3rd opportunity with the class. I learn something new each class I attend. We all definitely appreciate the Meguiar's hospitality! I cannot thank you enough for the great information you taught us.

Mike,
Thank you for a great day. I was able to learn something and meet fellow Club Lexus members. Although I was a bit overwhelmed with the amount of information, I know that I can refer back to the "Information Station" to remind me. I can't tell you how many things I was doing incorrectly thus creating swirl marks all over the car. I hope to attend this class again to reabsorb some of the information. Again, thank you for the wonderful lesson.
Dan

If you guys want to know how to take care of your car's finish the way it is meant to be done, you owe it to yourself to take a class with Mike at Meguair's HQ in Irvine! My wife and I really enjoyed the experience and gained alot of knowledge on how to use Meguair's car care products correctly. As usual, the CL members were a great bunch of guys and gals.

Thanks for the hospatility Mike :D We'll be back :xyxthumbs

This was an awesome Detail Day! I learned a lot about what to do and what not to do to protect my car's finish and to make my car shine.

Thank you, Mike. We really appreciate the hospitality ...and your patience with us. You are awesome!

We had three long distance award winners at the Lexus Class,

This young man drove down from San Fransisco to attend our class as it was important enough to him to learn how to work on his Lexus the right way.

And this couple flew down from Ontario, Canada

I can't thank Mike and all the people at Meguiar's enough for hosting a class like this. It's unbelievable how much I learned (and actually remember)! From techniques to product to tools, Mike covered it all, and explained it very well. Thanks again for the opportunity - my car is thanking me as I type... :D

Great class! Very informative and Mike is an entertaining yet patient instructor. I've attended one other detail day in the past and learned a few new things this time around as well. Thank you Mike for fielding our endless questions and to Megiuar's and staff for opening their garage to us and being such gracious hosts. :xyxthumbs

Mike,
Let me echo the comments from other Club Lexus members and add my appreciation and respect for the "passion" that you project. It is always great to be taught by someone who really believes in and much more importantly enjoys his "job". Keep up the outstanding effort and I plan to return to increase my knowledge in the future.

Sincerely,

Dave

Wow that kid looks like he is only 10 or something, it makes me feel a lot better because most of the pictures of people attending the class are older I am just 18 and cant wait to learn how to take care of my car.
