Hi all.... About to go and do my first 'decent sized shop' for Car Care Products, and want to go to the right place(s) to get some of the best products at good prices! As I'm new to the fantastic BMW World, I don't know of any good independent stores in the Nottinghamshire area (If anyone is from Notts and has some recommended outlets please let me know) so will probably at this stage stick to chain outlets, I also dont have access to Costco (who I understand is a great place for the bargain basics).
At this early stage, I want to keep to the basics, Wash/Clean, Polish, alloys/tyres,interior, and get comfortable and confident in this world before I try anything more complex. So just after the Essentials..
What I'm hoping for from you great people (By the way, I'm loving this forum so far, been so helpful so far) is:
1. Best place to get a wide range of 'the basics'? (And I mean basics, currently have sponge, car shampoo, and a chemical alloy cleaner).
2. I've read shed loads of threads on here suggesting products, and seen past autoexpress awards BUT could do with a basic list of suggested products: i.e. - Polish, Alloy Cleaner, Wash/Cleaning Mits & Chamois, tyre cleaner, and interior cleaning products (leather care & plastic dashboard etc)
Sorry if you feel this has been covered many times over in the past but basically I'm sh!t at this!!! Just a list of an outlet and a few essential products from you ladies n gents who have been buying products for your pride n joy for years.
Cheers folks, loving how helpful the people on this site are, I think the forum is absolute quality already, and thanks for all your help....
