    Shampoo wise, you should get a decent amount of £15.

    I'm currently a big fan of Dodo Juice's Born To Be Mild. A very slick, wax-friendly shampoo that foams nice, and, smells great!!!

    There are loooads of different shampoo's.. maybe borrow a few from local friends if anyones into it and see which you best prefer?

    I've always used Autoglym products and I rate them pretty highly. But as above, I have heard some excellent things about Dodo Juice and will be renewing my stocks with Dodo products.

    I suppose ultimately it depends on the condition of your paint.

    I think you'll struggle to get shampoo and wax for £15. Wax is expensive, especially good wax. I've heard from other people that Diamond Brite offers pretty good results for a polish and sealing glaze. Glaze is perhaps not as good as a wax, but it is cheaper.

    You could also go with Autoglym Conditioner Shampoo and a top coat of Autoglym Super Resin Polish. That would be £15 on the nose. But the polish will not protect the same as a wax. But wax should go on top of a polish anyway, so you would just need to wash it a lot to prevent dirt build up that a good wax will prevent you from.

    Another vote for Dodo Juice.

    If your after something from your local halfords, Meguires Gold class is ok too.

    Meguires car wax for £9 gives a fantastic finish. I bought some yesterday along with some T-cut, used the T-cut first then the wax and I can now use as a shaving mirror.

    Best value for money shampoo that performs great is Meguiars Shampoo Plus; 3.78L for £13.39, can't beat that. Details here...
