    I only rate their SRP, glass polish and cotton cloths. And the hood cleaning kit for the vert.

    I'll be giving other products a go from now on.

    the only autoglym products I use are the fast glass cleaner and the foaming interior cleaner.. both excellent products.. rest of the range is pretty crap IMO..

    meguiars is very much the same.. mainly rubbish except for the quick clay kit, gold class shampoo and some of the more specialist polishes..

    Anything by collinite, dodo juice, chemical guys and poorboys will be pretty sh*t hot! a bit more expensive but you get what you pay for

    I use Autoglym and swear by it.

    Also worth using t-cut every 3 months or so, as it gets rid of little 'micro' scratches that can hang onto dirt

    dont know how you can say that tbh, as ag srp is one of the most highly rated products with its exellent filling capability(easily as good as blackhole by poorboys for instance) and the glass polish blows every other glass cleaner out of the water!

    I only went for the AG range because it had that queen badge on there like robinsons juice They must be doing something right if they're supplying the royals.

    personally i dont think any one paticular manufacterer gets it right with every product in their line up, thats where trying different products come in, for most autoglym and megs products are easily accesable and well known and do a resonable job for the costs involved!

    Not sure Simoniz is going to remove swirls, you want a filler heavy polish (AG SRP or Poorboys Blackhole) or a compounding polish and a machine polisher (menzerna, megs + machine etc.)
    I thought sealants such as egp or jetseal or exp were to be used before application of wax, i agree most do apply far to much wax, the thinner the better imo, it removes pretty easily then, poorboys nattys blue is probably the easiest wax ive used. the only stuff i apply after wax is megs last touch as a drying aid and an occasional wipe down with zaino z8 or similar!

    Hmm where do you get zaino z8 from? I brought some "Mer" deatling spray from halfords it was on sale and its more of a whitey liquid compared to other detailing sprays and needs ALOT of rubbing in/buffing off and leaves dry tar-like spots if it isn't rubbed in properly. But leaves a good shine.

    clean your car(cyc) is where i got my z8 from, but pretty much all the zaino proucts in their listings are out of stock at the moment, you could also try dodos red mist or primas hydro or sonus acrylic glanz which are all top rated products on the cyc site!
