  • Meguiar's X3003 Professional Grit Guard

    This Meguiar's X3003 Professional Grit Guard is a radial grid that sits in the bottom of your wash bucket. This grid isolates any grit, dirt and debris from your wash mitt. It significantly reduces potential swirls and scratches to your vehicle as all of the debris settles to the bottom of the bucket.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Robust and works I know, spending virually twenty pounds on a bucket and grit guard to wash your car from may seem crazy to some people, right? But I did some thorough research into how to wash your car PROPERLY as we'd just bought a brand new car and I wanted to do things right. It seems that you really do need 2 buckets, each with a grit guard, to do a proper job. The grit guard I'm reviewing here goes with the Meguiars large yellow bucket and it does the job of keeping any debris out of the main body of water in the bucket as it sinks to the bottom. So you plunge in your (preferably lambswool) mitt (sponges are not allowed anymore!) and wash a section then rinse the mitt in the 2nd bucket of clean water where all the dirt you've just transferred from the car to the mitt is deposited and sinks below the grit guard. You then put your clean mitt back into your bucket with car shampoo, and grit guard, just in case any debris is still on the mitt, and do the next bit. Repeat till car is clean. Yes, over 8 quid for this grit guard is expensive but it was designed for a very soecific purpose and it seems to work well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pays for itself in the long run! Considered buying one of these for ages and decided a new car would warrant the 'investment'. Fits well into the Meguiars bucket, so performs VERY well at what it's designed to do. Yes, expensive as a standalone product, BUT take a look at what it stops getting back on the sponge/mitt then you'll thank yourself you're not putting all the dirt and grit BACK on your car! Makes sense when you think about it, so swallow the cost once and enjoy forever!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grit It's a guard that stops grit and it goes in the bucket. There's no idiots guide so if you are an idiot, don't buy it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product Does exactly what its meant to do! Collects all the silt and rubbish at the bottom of each bucket and keeps your wash mit/sponge clean keeping your car scratch and swirl free. I was so impressed that I went back and bought another bucket after reading reviews on the 'two bucket method'.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large capacity car cleaning bucket What more can be said - it's well made, the grit guard is a worthwhile precaution against unwanted scratches but combined they are a little expensive for what they are. Does what I want though.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good way to reduce scratches and swirls Purchased this in combination with the meguiars bucket at a cost of just over £16. This is a stupid amount of money to pay for a wash bucket but in fairness it is inline with similar combinations from rival detailing companies. For anyone looking to reduce scratches and swirls as much as possible this is an excellent way to start. No product can fully reduce the risk, but having used a grit guard for several years I can say that (in my experience) they do offer a good level of protection. Just remember to use a grit guard in combination with the two bucket wash method and a good quality wash mit! If you are looking to purchase this without the meguiars bucket please be aware it might not fit very into a standard bucket. The meguiars bucket is slightly wider that most standard buckets sold in hardware shops, I’ve found in the past that my existing grit guard doesn’t work very well in such buckets hence why I paid extra to have the matching bucket. Well done halfords too for stocking some higher quality detailing products. I had been considering purchasing another grit guard bucket for some time and was delighted to find this in my local halfords. Usually such a product would need to be ordered from a specialist online retailer.
