    Whatever you get to wax/polish make sure you get some Meguiars Ultimate Quik Wax too.
    Excellent for a quick top up of your wax after washes and between proper full on waxes (if you can be bothered to do them).

    Comes as a spray. One panel at a time... spray on... wipe in... wipe off. You're left with a very good shine and proper smooth paintwork to the touch. Takes about 10-15mins to do the entire car.

    Halfords sell it but not sure for how much. Eurocarparts do it for about £11.

    Get involved!

    they do a most of the Autoglym line in halfords I think. SRP is always a nice polish to use, I use that with their extra gloss protection and works well.

    Get yourself over on detailing world mate! More than enough advice over there!

    You would be better ordering products offline that going to halfords, theres alot better products out there!

    Agree with Ads on the Quik Wax, top job for a quick spruce up.
    I always go for the AutoGlym Ultra Deep Shine polish, works really well with dark cars
    then follow up with AutoGlym Extra Deep Gloss sealant, does the job for me.
    Put on and off with a good microfibre cloth.

    yeah I find the applicators good. Just buff with a good
    microfibre, if you've got a bandq near you check that out as they do good Kent microfibres and also sometimes have 3for2 on car care and usually stock autoglym range.

    If you're washing car today find a shady spot, nothing worse than polishing and waxing in direct sun!!

    I use the muc-off shampoo. It's in a pink bottle. Very good stuff and leaves a very nice finish, to top off I usually use auto Glym aqua wax after every wash and buff it off, best wax i've found for the money is auto Glym hd wax :)

    The Zymol shampoo's at Halfords are brilliant, good price, sudsy, slick and cheap! I find the foam applicators don't last very long. I still have my autoglym HD wax and original applicators after three years and they look good as new. HD wax is also brilliant but can be bought for much less online.
