    4 Great Autoglym Products sold as a bundle to make the exterior of your car look fantastic, includes:

    Autoglym High Definition Wax

    Autoglym Super Resin Polish 500ml

    Autoglym Shampoo Conditioner 500ml

    Autoglym Clean Wheels 500ml

    tried them all at some point and this seems to work for me best of all with a good bit of elbow grease put into it

    shampoo every week plus clean wheels

    wax and polish every other week time allowing

    car is about to be rubbed down and stripped for the winter and then resprayed in the same colour but with purple thrown in and slammed euro style minus the rear spoiler as it really needs it as someone keyed most panels the other week so no polishing for now and just a general clean up to look good.only get out what you put in i think and cant believe the money people spend some times when its just a car at the end of the day.

    my bill a month-about 10 pound
    my bosses a month-100 plus

    only cleaning it regular due to the car being stood up for 6 years until i got my hands on it hence the respray needed and arches,interior etc need to be done and its a project car at the end of the day.would be just as happy to use turtle wax on it but hate dirty cars and all of mine are cleaned every week anyway like i have always done but just like ag products as its easier to work with and gets results

    im not a fan of either, i find the AG shampoo a bit weak, and you need to put a fair amount in, and it dosent seem to clean as well as other products i have used

    AG clean wheels is ok, but i preffer bilberry wheel cleaner, it goes further its cheaper and is really easy to use

    if you're a waxaholic vics concours is the best wax ive used below the £50 mark,
    pinnacle signature 2 is also very good, if budget allows raceglaze 55 is a awesome preformer in the looks and durability stakes

    My car is almost Black looking in certain light conditions, I use a mixture of waxes depending on how long I have to spend cleaning the car.

    I also have to clean & polish the missus X3 and 2 motorbikes.

    I have found good results with AutoGlym, zymol, Maguires, Crystal Glow, & BMW own natural care polish.

    The most I've spent on any product so far is £16, the BMW polish is good value at £9.99 IMO.

    Before discovering the above products I used to use Turtle Wax, but thats now been given to my lad to polish his push bike.

    Lots of peeps say my cars & bikes are the cleanest in our close & I have one of the cleanest cars at work, just goes to show that you don't have to spend big bucks to get a nice shine & admiring glances.

    Having said that I see the Collinite 915 Marque D'Elegence + free Microfibre is not too expensive at £23.50 inc P&P, on good old Flea-bay. ...........might have to put that on my Xmas list

    It depends what your after and it's a MINEFIELD!! I'm an old guy and was well set in my ways. Wash the car with Zipwax and polish with whatever I had in the shed. It was only after I studied some of the detailing techniques that I discovered the secret to the best finish possible and that is...preparation. Just claying a car will give a smooth glass like finish. Further' to use a DA polisher with a fine finishing polish will take it to the next stage of 'bling' and remove most of the swirls. It's then up to the individual what glaze and or wax/sealant they use but if that preparation is done properly the results will be better than anything you have witnessed before.

    I've used the turtlewax stuff before and with my car being black I find it attracts dust more quickly compared to using collinite. I agree thats its alot less hassle compared to AG stuff in relation to dust/curing time etc
