    We're releasing this immediately, so you should see it available from your fave online retailer very soon.

    Not only is this the exact same formula that is offered in Europe, it's even the same label. What does that mean? Well, labeling requirements are different in Europe but we knew that if we changed the label some people would think the product itself had changed, so we didn't touch a thing. There is actually an additional US regulatory bit that needs to be included in the label for products sold in the US, but rather than change the label to accommodate that requirement we're just adding an additional sticker to the back of the bottle. In fact, when a batch of M101 is produced and bottled, part of that line of bottles turns one way to get the additional US label affixed to it and the other part of the line goes straight on to skip the label. So even a single batch of M101 will be distributed worldwide - we haven't changed a thing with this formulation.Now, keep in mind that this product was specifically developed for use on European aftermarket paint (ie, the paint used in body shops in Europe) and for the typical body shop workflow used in Europe. That means foam pads (smaller than typically used here in the US) and a rotary buffer (moving at a slower speed than typical here in the US). But since many high end detailers took it upon themselves to source this product and have it shipped to them domestically and then fell in love with it, even when used on a DA with microfiber pads, we relented and decided to offer it for sale in the US.Interesting story about the development of M101 - Jason Rose, our Pro Products Development guru, traveled to Europe with one of our chemists and a makeshift mobile lab to create this product. This made more sense than tweaking the product, sending to Europe for evaluation, tweaking again based on feedback, resending and waiting for feedback again, over and over. With our guys on the ground in Europe and able to respond immediately, and actually participate in the testing, we were able to fine tune the product much faster, and know for sure that we had a winner. We just didn't really expect so many people here to actually ship it back to the US (it is produced domestically, just like all of our products) and then fall in love with it. Further, even with the amount of dust it can create when used with a DA, these guys were so taken by the speed and level of cut coupled with a high level of finish, that they are willing to overlook the dust because everything else is just so stellar. While we still recommend using M101 with a foam pad on a rotary, we know you guys are going to experiment and play with it in all kinds of scenarios, so have at it. Just remember those design parameters in case you come across a situation where it's not the perfect fit!!

    Ha ha... I remember your review of M101 several months ago calling it the "Jesus" of compounds.

    Let the experimentation begin! I'm waiting for the "M101 via DAMF" review lol...

We can go out for a drive without her makeup and she looks fine. If I want to take the black one out, it is three or four hours in the "bathroom" to get ready.

    LOL!! Garry, you'd be surprised at the pushback Jason and I got when we insisted that the label remain identical. "But that's a European label" we were told, "we can't use that domestically". We said "look, we know these guys, and if you change a single thing on that label they will immediately start thinking we somehow altered what's inside the bottle, too, and that just won't fly". Our conversation with you and others at Detail Fest convinced us of this. The powers that be caved, but we had to add an additional sticker with a little domestic regulatory blurb for sale here in the US.

    Hmmmmm...... do you think a compound that calls out rotary use only with a foam pad (forget for a moment what you already know about this product) that is priced at $58/qt will work there????

    I think Scottwax had his tongue firmly planted in his cheek when he said that.

    Re: M101 Foam Cut Compound

    When and where is it going to be available domestically?
    Can we expect to see it in the local auto-parts stores?
