    have you considered a good aio product? I recently bought chemical guys blacklight and Hybrid v7 spray sealant. Everyone is raving about it atm and it seems like good stuff.

    Shampoo that im using atm is Chemical guys maxi suds or zymol autowash, For a dedicated wax i go for dodo juice purple haze/blue velvet. Sealant autoglym egp as i find it holds up amazingly well.

    Wheel sealant im using is poorboys but there are alot higher end brands that will last longer.

    For dolphin grey, a sealant will be best.

    I'd go with either Meguiar's Quik Clay Meguiar's Quik Clay Kit | Meguiar's Car Care & Detailing Products or Auto Finesse Clay Auto Finesse Clay | Auto Finesse Car Care & Detailing Products with Last Touch as a lubricant: Meguiar's Last Touch | Meguiar's Car Care & Detailing Products

    Then a non-abrasive paint cleanser: Werkstat Prime Acrylic | Werkstat Car Care & Detailing Products this'll sharpen the finish, remove ingrained dirt and grime and lay a base coat of sealant, extending the durability of the sealant.

    The sealant I'd use is Auto Finesse Tough Coat: Auto Finesse Tough Coat | Auto Finesse Car Care & Detailing Products - very easy to use, really great finish, strong durability and a slick surface.

    And, it's on special offer; free bottle of shampoo this month (as per the offer noted on the site).

    Wheel sealant: use Werkstat Acrylic Prime first, then Poorboy's Wheel Sealant: Poorboy's Wheel Sealant | Poorboy's Car Care & Detailing Products

    Let me know if I can advise further!

    Shampoo - Dodo Juice Born to be mild or Autofinesse Lather
    Polish - Autofinesse Tripple (its awesome by hand on that colour)
    Wax - Hmm theres many great ones but depends on your budget! I would say Supernatural Hybrid would be a good move at 23.50 from JuicyJen off of here!
    Wheel Sealant - Autofinesse mint rims

    Hope that helps

    Shampoo - Valet Pro Poseidon's Carnauba wash (£5-£10)
    Polish - Autoglym SRP - it's really good stuff you needn't change
    Wax - Collinite 476 - Looks like you have this too, again it's good stuff
    Alloys wheel - Poorboys wheel sealant (approx £12) great stuff!

    meguiars tyre gel is brilliant stuff too!

    I used all of the above on my mrs's dolphin grey A3 and it came up a bloomin treat

    Depends on budget mate...if you want to spend around £60-£70 then get the full werks kit along with their shampoo and you wont go far wrong or

    Zymol Auto Wash, not many use it but it is still one of the best i use
    Bilt Hamber Clay
    Chemical Guys EZ Creme Glaze
    Collinite 845

    and for the wheels

    Everbrite Wheel Guard or Permanon Aircraft Supershine
