    ive just used the 3 stage meggies, 1st is like a degreaser, 2nd a polish and 3rd is the sealing coat if you like - apart from tom h not liking polishing 3 times i can say its probably the nicest product i have used yet

    I talked to AG and they said that UDS & EG would not bond to each other but i have not tried it myself, how did you find it.

    UDS has fillers so the eqvilant would be NXT but they are not the same. and then maybe top off with #16 maybe.

    I personally would try poorboys stuff.

    Have a look on www.detailingworld.co.uk

    too much static creates dust on the car with the extra gloss - found the ultra gloss ok - but the mequires is working for me in every way

    There are no specific equivalents as AG and Megs do things differently. Megs tries to fix all surface problems whereas AG tries to hide imprefections.

    I didn't like AG as I found it difficult to work with, plus the results never seems to last so well. Saying that, I do still use AG EGP - I think this is the best product they do. I use this over a coat of Carlack68 sealant (same as Klasse AIO). I then top with 3 coats of Carauba wax.

    Honestly AG are pretty poor, they just fill and really don't remove swirls.

    Try something else, www.detailingworld.co.uk will give you an insight into whats available.
