    My S3 was long overdue a polish, so I spent the morning doing it, and then took some photos, if anyone's interested. Shame it only lasts a few days before it's dirty again!

    Thanks guys.

    I used Zymol, I swear by it. It's great for black cars because it deals with swirly marks that are more visible on black. It smells of coconut too, which is nice.

    You apply it with a cloth, let it dry, then buff it off, and to get it extra, extra shiny you spray a fine mist of water over it and buff again (although I didn't do the last step, it was looking good enough already).

    very nice. that zymol cleaner wax is very similar to the autoglym super resin.

    If you really want it to shine and last then try putting a glaze ontop of that (like megs #7) and then a wax (like collinite 476s) its the best part of a days work but it will lock in all that goodness. On its own the zymol cleaner (or indeed Autoglym super resin) wont last very long unfortunately.
