    After having the passenger door repainted and then repainted again because of a poor colour match I decided to treat the car to a full detail as the door was now gleaming and the rest of the paintwork looked like it could do with a good clean.

    Spent 4 hours on it yesterday, would have been quicker if I didn't have to keep drying the car in between showers

    Anyway, I clayed all of the bodywork using a Megs Clay kit, done this a few times before but not on the BMW, and to be fair the paintwork was in good condition with only a minimal amount of contaminents on the paint.

    After that, as it was raining, I got inside the car and used some Autoglym interior shampoo, smells lovely and lifts the stains straight away with the help of a nail brush. I also treated the leather with some Autoglym leather cream. Again, smells lovely and my car has the new leather smell again.

    After the interior was done I went back outside, dried off the paintwork and then cleaned the paintwork with some Megs Paint cleaner. After buffing that off I then applied a coat of Autoglym Ultra Deep Shine, first time i've used it and i've got to say it brings the paintwork up brilliantly, used super resin before and this just ends up putting dust all over your car. No such problem with the UDS.

    I intended to apply a layer of wax but it was dark, and pissing it down! And the UDS seems to be doing a good job of beeding the water. Think i'm going to give the new paintwork a month or so to harden properly before I wax.

    What do you think?

    Thanks fellas, get my cleaning products from Halfords and the t'internet. I've got a big box full of various products, mostly Autoglym & Meg's as they're the easiest to get hold of. Oh & Home Bargains do a pack of 3 microfiber cloths for 99p, bargain. Used to use old t-shirts but microfiber cloths are much better!
