    Morning everyone!

    I'm planning on giving my 8L S3 a little fettle today, and I was wondering what the best order to do things is...

    Is it best to - Wash, dry, polish, clay with detailing spray, then wax...

    Or - Wash, dry, clay with detailing spray, then polish and wax after?

    I use all Meguiars stuff, always have so it's the ultimate polish, ultimate quik detailer, tech wax 2 an even the clay bar and car shampoo lol

    Any help would be appreciated :)

    2 buckets, one with you car wash in it the other with nothing but clean water. Wash the car thoroughly with a jet wash the more grit, dust ect you can get off the better for obvious reasons.

    Using a lambs wool mitt wash one panel at a time, rince the mitt in the clean water so any dirt goes in there and not in your bucket with the car wash.

    Using this method helps to prevent it from becoming swirled even further....
