View Full Version : Two Simple Questions from a Canuck

Jan 27th, 2004, 08:28 AM
I've been trying to find out if APC+ is available in Canada and when will NXT be available in the Great White North?

Actually I finally got an answer from Meguiar's Canada and the answers are
The Detailer Line is made in Canada for Meguiars Canada and is different from the US product. No APC+ available at present time.
NXT is to be available March 1, or thereabouts but it will not be sold through Canada's Largest Retailer for that type of product ,Canadian Tire, or PartSource which is a Southern Ontario based Auto Parts Chain. It will be sold through NAPA, CMax, and numerous local retail outlets (usually auto paint dealers that carry the Meguiar's Line.
It was a problem to get the answer but I guess I was missing the people in the know. Actually they were really helpful once I got to pose my questions to those who knew.
I'm looking forward to trying it....(in a big way).

Thank you Blake and Tim for getting to the bottom of this. I had heard that PartSource was going to carry NXT, but I did not know Napa was going to carry it.

As far as the Detailer line goes, distribution into Canada is a tough nut to crack.

Here's the url to PartSource website, http://www.partsource.ca/

PartSource carries a very good assortment of Meguiar's products and I have bought several items there but according to Megs Canada they will not be carrying NXT this year.
PartSource is affiliated with Canadian Tire so I guess they share the mistake. I would imagine someone will be upset that they missed getting it in 2004.
Thankfully we have enough dealers in the area where we will be able to get it and Meg's has assured us that if we can't find it once they get it they will look after the customers.
Checked Buffalo/Amherst/Niagara Falls NY areas yesterday and it's not available there yet.

I'll post a pic later.

Can anyone describe why the non-butyl APC+ formula is soo much better than then the knock-off APC that we get up here.

The key difference is that one is butyl and the other is non-butyl. I think it comes down to what you are using it for and personal preference.

If I were using it on carpet or cloth I would use the APC+, it won’t leave your material stiff like APC would. Also, butyl based products have been known to be better for greasy clean up but in my opinion both are great products and good at tackling grease.

Hope this helps,
