    get yourself some collinite 915 for a wax mate, really hard wearing for the winter months. as for a polish any well known one will bring it up well. i would say get yourself some Poorboys Black Hole as this is excellent for dark coloured cars mate, it is a glaze and adds gloss to any dark car.

    As above, Colli 915 or their 476s auto wax is A) durable b) easy to use and most importantly, C) cheap!!

    Very limited knowledge with the AS range of polishes.. I have some Patinum as I brought it for the "quick hand polish" jobs. These are yet to come through as I try to concentrate more on the full machine correction jobs etc. Lusso Revitalizing Creme might be a worthwhile contender...

    Under a tenner!?

    Collinite 476s coming in around 14 you're not going to get much better than that I am afraid.

    Autosmart stuff is ok, the mirror image is very similar to autoglym SRP just not quite as good, cherry glaze gives a good wet look shine but doesnt last long at all, if you have already got mirror image i would hit it with that then get a decent wax over it, as said 476 is a real hard wearing wax, don't over look meguairs #16 though, can get it for around 11 and it leaves such a nice finish, prefur it over more expensive wax's i've used.

    IMO 476 does last longer, theres not much on the market that will rival it for durability for the price, i do think meguairs#16 looks better though, leaves such a glossy finish and my car is silver and i get amazeing reflections and a wet look finish, build up a few coats of it and it will last a fair while.
