Reviews on a few CT detailing products

This week's Canadian Tire flyer has a few of their car detailing products on sale and I was contemplating picking up a set. I am looking for clay-bar, polish, sealant, wax brand recommendations. In the past I have just used Mothers. I read the FAQ at the top of this forum on proper technique and I have read some of the other threads on Collinite being a good brand... but now I am wondering if some of the brands currently available at CT are any good.

The ones on sale this week are Autoglym and Turtle (the black vehicle care line).

Any feedback on those compared to the recommended brands in the FAQ and other detailing threads?

The only decent product CT has is Autoglym wax. Everything else on the shelf is pretty much garbage. If you want products that actually do something, you need to use the professional stuff. Which by surprise, is usually cheaper than the stuff at CT.

I get everything from there.
