    Some autoglym super resin polish is very good stuff...then Mequiars products are excellent too..You may want to clay bar your car...I believe halfords are doing either a 3 for 2 offer or BOGOF offer If you look through this section you'll get plenty of ideas as there is loads of info here

    i wash mine with meguires gold class its really good!!

    clay bar is good for getting all the dirt out

    and i also use colinite 476s wax, really easy to apply and buff off and it makes your car soo shiney

    This is the only stuff Ive ever used and I do like the results. But it leaves to much dust when buffing off so Im going to try something diferent next time!

    I use at the mo meguirs gold class shampoo, very good, then the meguirs clay ber kit which is very good, either the autoglym resin polish or the meguirs polish, then meguirs gold class wax or simoniz wax in the gold tin but this can take some elbow grease to shift.

    Well thanks for all your advice, for the test Ive gone with the Autoglym kit that was 28quid, includes the glay bar, buffer cloth and lube (love that word hahaha)

    And because BOGOF at Halfords got a another autoglym kit for wheels, super resin polish, shampoo and something else for free.... BONUS!!!

    What colour is your car mate? If its dark I wouldn't clay it if you don't have access to a machine because claying brings up defects like swirls etc.

    A couple coats of AG SRP should sort it plus some coli wax on top

    Got anything for the interior? Just done my leathers today

    Its silver mate, came up an effin treat I can tell you... but guess what... as soon as Id finished the heavens opened!!! AAAAARRGGGHHH!!!!

    Still need to polish it but cannot be arsed to go out and buy another cloth to put it on, might just rip up an old cotton tshirt and get it done that way.

    Interior wise I just used the standard that came with the autoglym kit... not to impressive to be honest and seriously need to work out a way of getting all the crap out of the nooks and crannys... hoover never picks them up!!
