    Hi guys, I bought my first S3 (8L, 2003) around 2 months ago, which I am really enjoying. I've always used AutoGlym cleaning products, but seeing some of the finishes achieved on here I'd like your recommendation about what car cleaning products I should use to get a really good result.

    I'm not wanting to invest in a polishing machine, so will be doing it all by hand.

    What do you suggest?

    I'm also planning to Waxoyl underneath the car to protect it from the onslaught of wet winter weather that we're now heading into. Any suggestions on this? Just apply the Waxoyl straight on or apply any other form of protection first (especially if areas of the original underseal are no longer intact)?

    Cheers,
    Paul.

    Another tick from me for the Jeffs Acrylic kit.. Just make sure you get plenty of Jett Trigger layers down :)

    Here's a couple of shots from yesterdays work on a Z4 - Prime underneath two layers of Jett Trigger.

    Werkstatt is necxt on my list of things to try.

    However, I'm currently getting some great results from Dodo Juice Lime Prime and Dodo Juice Diamond White wax :) Bit more labour intensive to apply than the Werkstatt stuff but good results here...

    Gets topped up after washes with Dodo Juice Red Mist, I'm happy with it but I'm always up for trying to new stuff so I'll be interested to see how you get on with the Werkstatt kit :)
