Meguiars X2020 Supreme Review 2017
They cost around $8 for a pack of 3 and with this brand you know that they are going to be really high quality. Ideally you want three things from this type of towel:
- Be very absorbent
- Not damage your car
- Help create a great shine
Well these tick all the boxes for sure and it makes these one of the best selling products for car care currently available in the market. In another article we did a full review on all of the microfiber towels and these came out the best.
There are almost 900 reviews left by buyers on Amazon who give these an average rating of 4.6 out of 5 stars. We would rate them just slightly higher than that again, but either way, the ratings are excellent.
If for no other reason they are simply worth a try for just under $8
Main Benefits of the X2020 Towels
When you get one in your hand you feel right away that these are nice and thick and the micro fiber is on both sides of the towel. They have also edged these and that ensures that there will be no accidental scraping when you are drying and then polishing your car.
When we used them we saw that they absorbed a lot of water which is just what you want. If you have ever only used a “terry” style cloth before then you will be impressed with any type of micro fiber. So if you haven’t made the swap as yet, then you should. Out of all the micro style that we have used (and we use a lot) then these are in our opinion easily the best.
For a very long time we used the “Zwipes” cloths and although we still like them, these are just a cut above.
A good friend of mine uses these on his boats and his wife also uses them on her stainless steel kitchen sink, and they really love them. They recommended them to me and that is when I gave them a try. They are more expensive than most so I now use them for the shining element and use the Zwipes for the general drying off.
Great on Windows and Glass
The X2020 are really good on anything glass including windscreens and mirrors. I was well impressed with the way they left no streaks at all. When I was reading through the reviews this came across time after time. It is however when you try it out for yourself that you get a real sense of just how good they are.
Quite a few reviewers also mentioned that these are not as good as Cobra. I found that interesting so of course I had to check that out as well. When I did I found out that those reviewers were correct. However they are almost three times the price.
Now could I justify that by getting three times the performance? To be honest I just could not do that. There is no question in my mind that the Cobra Deluxe Jr are a much higher quality. For people who are in love with their car, then these will not be considered expensive as they offer the ultimate in car care.
For the average person the Meguiars will do an excellent job with out the big price tag. It is also worth bearing in mind that the X2020 are a best selling product so you can be pretty sure of their quality. At some stage during the day I will end up washing some type of car and I use these to get a good shine, ad to have streak free windows and mirrors.
This market for cloths changes all the time so we will keep an eye on the newer reviews to see what people think. These ones have been around for 3 years and sell very well. Until I find something equal or better in quality at a lower price, I will continue on using these.
