This is a fantastic vacuum kit. It includes everything you need from filters, bags, high quality hose and connections and accessories that are very purpose built and included. There are no "fluff" or junk accessory attachments included in this deal just for advertising purposes (like most other "car detailing" vacuum kits). It includes just the essentials needed for automobile detailing. This is a hopped up and modified Shop Vac. Suction power is remarkable. The Metro-Vac is a toy in comparison and I mean that. The attachments included are professional style. Similar to the ones you see at a car wash.
The power cord is huge. 35'. rarely will you need an extension cord. it is long enough to make it around the car completely. The vacuum hose is also high quality and soft. And the hose coupling screws into the vacuum which is awesome. Its not just pressed on like the other shop vac's. High quality casters and the rear plastic accessory holder is perfect and fits everything you need plus extra.
I can go on and on. Even if your not in the market for a new vacuum I would strongly consider replacing whatever you have with this. If you can find it on sale here at Autogeek then its a must buy.
To be fair the only thing I would like to see in the future on this vacuum is caster locks. So that you can lock the wheels from rolling around while using it. The last thing you want to do is roll this sucker into the side of the car when you pull the hose towards you. I quickly resolved this by duck taping 2 out of 4 of the wheels to add some rolling resistance.
