    After reading a few threads on peoples detailing, cleaning process and the products people use, i must admit im getting a bit of cleaning freak!! i was wondering what you guys trust and would never be without, my personal products and process is

    *spray the whole car and wheels with muc-off

    * rinse down car, wash with a wash mit, including wheels, rinse car again
    *dry off with a microfibre

    *polish and wax with meguiars stage 2 and 3 (every couple months stage 1)

    *then some autoglym glass, trim, tyres shine

    im happy with the results and always interested in new products,so always like to gear other peoples views on products, after lots of reviews with perfection detaling and them recomending the collinite 476s wax in another thread/post i've just ordered some.

    so what you guys use for your car.....

    i use pro detail snow foam,

    then dodo juice car wash (with microfibre mitts)

    then megs deep crystal polish (only every other time i do it)

    and autosmart carnauba wax!

    megs and autoglym are ok stuff but if you look around you'll find a lot better for cheaper!

    i used to used megs tech wax and can't complain, its a good product but then i found this autosmart wax for a fraction of the price and last twice as long! definitely highly recommended!
