    New to this and baffled by the choice!!

    Hi

    I've got a 2007 Imola Yellow S3 and am looking for some advice on paint protection and the alloys please.

    First the paint. I use a lambswool mitt and the two bucket method. I use Meguiars Ultimate Wash & Wax to clean. I then used Meguiars clay kit, followed by Autoglym super resin polish and topped off with Meguiars NXT 2.0 Liquid Wax. I'm pleased with the results, but was wondering if I could obtain a longer lasting and more durable finish if I used a sealant as well? I was looking at Car-Lack 68 long life sealant - is this any good? And at what stage in the above process would I use a sealant - after polish or after wax? Other recommendations welcome.

    Now the alloys. I use Valet Pro Bilberry wheel cleaner (and last time I clayed and waxed them with Meguiars wax as well) but again was wondering if I could get a longer lasting and more durable finish with a sealant? I was looking at Poorboys Wheel Sealant? Is it any good? Any other recommendations?

    Thanks in advance.

    Pete

    if you wanted durability collinite 476 is a very good wax, placed on top of your AG SRP, I use it over winter and it is still beading

    I use sealant instead of wax during the summer for a more wet look

    I also use poorboys wheel sealant, it's very good, money no object it would be gtechniq stuff
