    get yourself some collinite 915 for a wax mate, really hard wearing for the winter months. as for a polish any well known one will bring it up well. i would say get yourself some Poorboys Black Hole as this is excellent for dark coloured cars mate, it is a glaze and adds gloss to any dark car.

    As above, Colli 915 or their 476s auto wax is A) durable b) easy to use and most importantly, C) cheap!! :)

    Very limited knowledge with the AS range of polishes.. I have some Patinum as I brought it for the "quick hand polish" jobs. These are yet to come through as I try to concentrate more on the full machine correction jobs etc. Lusso Revitalizing Creme might be a worthwhile contender...

    Under a tenner!?

    Collinite 476s coming in around £14 you're not going to get much better than that I am afraid.

    Autosmart stuff is ok, the mirror image is very similar to autoglym SRP just not quite as good, cherry glaze gives a good wet look shine but doesnt last long at all, if you have already got mirror image i would hit it with that then get a decent wax over it, as said 476 is a real hard wearing wax, don't over look meguairs #16 though, can get it for around £11 and it leaves such a nice finish, prefur it over more expensive wax's i've used.

    IMO 476 does last longer, theres not much on the market that will rival it for durability for the price, i do think meguairs#16 looks better though, leaves such a glossy finish and my car is silver and i get amazeing reflections and a wet look finish, build up a few coats of it and it will last a fair while.
