    Depends really on what you want to achieve, Autoglym Super Resin Polish is good for "filling" in minor scratches and marks and leaves a decent finish on all colours.

    ATM, I am using a range of products from our forum vendors Autobrite, including cherry glaze that leaves a great finish on any colour car.

    Autoglym SRP, cheap one litre bottles of ebay are around £12 delivered - I've had my bottle for nearly two years now and im pretty OCD with car cleaning. Great stuff to start off with and I bet once you've used it you'll go and buy another bottle once you've finished the first..

    I'm keeping an eye on this thread.

    I've only used Golden Fleece on my Imola Red E46 so far, it was OK, but i'm sure some better polish and wax will have her looking even sexier.

    I've only ever polished my cars, never waxed. So I take it you wax after polishing? Same procedure? Wax on, Wax off?

    Autoglym restoration polish followed by super resin polish, or any of the other 2 mentioned(poorboys blackhole or clearkote red moose glaze) will give you a really good finish, but you really need to seal it in with a good wax or sealant. personally i'm in favor of wax as it gives a better depth and wet look especially on colours such as red or black, depending on what you want to spend and if you want durablity or looks there is quite alot of choice, the wax that instantly springs to mind for your car imo would be victoria wax concours, its gives the best possible look/finish with decent durability and is well price at approx £35, if thats a bit pricey my other recommendation would be collinite 476s which would give super durabilty and reasonable looks and thats around £18 a tin
