    As already mentioned some are far more aggressive, but you will find little need for these and they are normally only used in extreme situatons.
    A few I use are Zaino Z-16, Meguiars mild and Sonus green.

    This is my plan of action.....
    1. Wash the car and dry it using a chamois leather
    2. Use the clay kit from halfrauds
    3. Apply some touch up paint to the stone chips
    4. Use 'AG Ultra Deep Shine' all over the paint work.
    5. Use the Meguiars Wax that comes with the kits from halfrauds (and probably buy another bottle of it while I'm there)

    Are you suggesting using another product in between 2 & 3 - seeing as it's a 5 year old car which I've just bought and it's got a few scratches and small marks on it.

    Cheers
    Chris, ditch the chamois leather and get yourself a drying towel,
    would you wipe a baby's bum with a piece of cow hide? I think not
    Just google "drying towel" they're available all over the net/halfords & on ebay,
    perhaps Gleammachine can recommend one to you?

    regards

    Many thanks, I have been using the Meguiars Mild to date, so a couple of other options is really useful !
    2013, Porsche 911 Carrera 4S, PDK, Sports Exhaust, Chrono, etc, etc

    Uber drying towels without a shadow of doubt, wash a few times before use and they are even better.
