This is a good deal. The detail kit sells separately for $40 (or $20 on sale if you're willing to wait) and is totally worth it. The vacuum sells for $79 normally I think.

The 5.0hp motor is very good, just as powerful as my 16 gal. Ridgid vacuum. I would say this is a pretty good deal, especially when you factor in the lifetime service agreement.

Their new NXT line has a battery powered 9 Gal vac. I am hoping they come out with a smaller cordless portable vac. The cord kills an auto vac for me anyway. One would think it should be at least be able to plug into the car to work.

I have this shop-vac but not the auto-detailing kit. Normal price is $79 like the poster above said. The vacuum is great and comes with a 20' power cord. The auto detailing kit makes this a very good deal, especially since you get the pro grade locking hose.

I don't think you're going to get 5.0 HP on a battery. Maybe through a cigarette lighter in your car but you'd probably want your car running

Well it takes two batteries and is supposed to be fantastic, albeit a bit on the large side for portable.

Maybe a dumb question, but if this is wet/dry then what's the bag for?

Maybe with two batteries it won't be weak. I had a Ryobi 18V that had great reviews and it was too weak for serious car cleaning

And you're not going to get 5.0HP on this 120V vac. Drawing 9 amps, its wattage
comes out to 1080W, That equals only 1.45HP MAX. {HP = (E*I) / 746}. *
The peak HP rating is pure marketing BS.

Been wanting to get the auto detailing kit, but I just could not justify the price. Now I have a better vacuum and detailing kit. So its a great deal for me.

Looks like the main difference is the one you posted has wheels. And a tray to hold the accessories...
