Anyone see anything wrong with the Autozone stuff?

I purchased the Zaino pro kit and essentially most things that I would need. But the fam and I are away from home right now (on and off for a while) - so I went to Autozone and bought some of what they had available: clay, Meg Quick Detailing spray, NXT 2.0, Stoners, and Meg leather conditioner.

Anyone see anything wrong with doing one treatment with that stuff while we're away and then using the Zaino once we're back for good; and then dedicating the cheaper stuff for the DD and wife's car? Can't hurt right?

Those products will ruin your car completely. Your paint will peel off equivalently to high strength paint stripper.

Seriously, are Meguiar's products no good? If that's true, I find it very hard to believe. All I ever used on my E46 were Meguiar's products, and the same for the M3 so far. The paint on my E46 was fine when I sold it.

autozone sells a 13 or 14 dollar bottle of Zymol in a funky blue color.....used it when i was away in maine....came out nice .....i wouldnt use any leather cleener found at autozone cuz they prob contain silicone...which means your leather is going to crack and fall off your seats instantly ....trust me it will
