    Pureguard for me, always used that as a valeter.

    If your on a budget the stuff is amazing. Put a layer of stage 1 on then stage 2 on top and leave for about 20 mins, comes up like a mirror! The garages I worked at charged £250 for this service

    I found some on ebay for cheap http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Pureguard-vehi...814cd1ffc4b1cc

    Also anything with carnauba wax in it will give it the best shine, better than pure guard but more expensive http://www.theultimatefinish.co.uk/c...tBy=Price-Desc

    Can't say I have ever used Mr Pledge on anything except the interior.

    I would recommend a decent wax like either Autoglym HD Wax or
    Collinite 476s - both are very good and not too expensive, approx £25 for Autoglym and £15 for the collinite.
    I think the key step is the initial preperation - a good hand wash, clay, clean again and then wax.

    Check out the following links which will provide you with some really useful information on how to get started:
