    OK I'll put down 5 things. These are products that I will always use and not replace with another brand as they are so good - to me that is. So in no particular order:

    1. Powermaxed TFR - People rave about BH Autofoam. But this little gem is a tadge better IMO. And cheap as chips from ECP/CP4L
    2. Sonax BSD - Great QD. In fact more a Sealant than a QD. And can be mixed with other QDs.
    3. CarPro Perl - I've had a bottle for 3 years now. It lasts and lasts as it dilutable, and has so many uses.
    4. AutoGlym SRP - Great AIO, cleanser polish. Really does bring up a cars paintwork with little effort - even by hand.
    5. These 3 items are no longer available, but I would keep buying them in a shot if I could purchase. I have a lot of the first 2 left. My top 5 would include WetGlaze 2 though:
    a. Concourse Car Care's Perficio - Amazing pre-wax cleanser
    b. Wetglaze 2.0 - Purely a show glaze, but nothing shines like it. And it can sit over a wax or sealant
    c. Wolf's White Satin car shampoo. I've used tons of different shampoos and this was the best. CAn't seem to buy anywhere anymore, a shame.

    Top 5 of mine in no particular order...

    Gyeon Wetcoat - AMAZING results with VERY little effort...simply spray onto a wet car a panel at a time, and it will seal the paintwork for around 6 weeks
    GTechniq Serum Light and Exo V3 combo - Awesome durability, amazing shine, water repellancy is amazing, lasted 3 years on my CLS with a single application!
    Gyeon MOHS - Easy to use, gloss levels are very very high, good hardness rating (9H)
    Gyeon Tire Shine - leaves a perfect matt finish IMO and more durable than most others I have used...lasts for ages! Used around 6-7 times so far and not even used 1/10th of a bottle
    Soft99 Fusso Wax - Awesome beading, lasts around 5-6months, cheap, one tub lasts for years if stored right, can be a bit of a pain to remove however.

    Others worth a mention;

    Bouncers QD - amazing deatiler with an AMAZING fragrance
    Elite green pad - medium cut pad which seems to do it all! Cope of the Chemical Guys HEX pad from memory
    GTechniq shampoo - very good suds, so much slickness, just an all round amazing shampoo
    Autosmart G101 - very good and versitle APC with many uses on the car and around the house!

    Theres loads more but im hungry lol

    @jassyo06 - Where to start FFS

    I'll do the 5 that immediately come to mind

    1. Microfiber Madness Incredimitt - Tried quite a few 'wash mediums' & this by far is the best
    2. Sonax BSD - A very underrated product IMHO + I like doing a bit of 'mixing' with it & my extensive collection of QD's
    3. Prima Amigo - A brilliant glaze
    4. CarChem 1900:1 shampoo - Love this stuff & have a fair few scents in it too lol ( Like @pxr5 I do like Wolf's White Satin too, but use my last litre sparingly as its impossible to get hold of now
    5. Meguiars Endurance tyre gel - I must have tried 15 + tyre dressings & always come back to the 1st 'real' one I started using. It gives the 'finish' I am after, so it work for me
    6. Planet Polish Wheel Seal & Shine - Why would you use any other type of wheel sealant ?
    7. ValetPro Citrus Pre Wash - Good enough for me to stop snow foaming. 'Nuff said

    Oh thats 7 lol

    I could go on and on and on ...

    No Gyeon Cure in your list Jassy ? :superman:

    Gloss levels of Gyeon are sublime but endurance is mediocre lol

    I will sneek another one in Swisswax seal feed expensive but returns rubber seals and trim back better than new and lasts 6-7 months with one coating apply another on top and it will last as long as your pcp deal lol

    - gyeon silk dryer, one towel to get the water off ready for a wipe down with a drying aid.
    - All of the ragcompany cloths.
    - Carpro Perl, doesn't last long but easy to use and the perfect matt/satin sheen.
    - Adams wheel cleaner + rubber/tyre cleaner, bought a gallon of each, used half in a year.

    I have had go with the incredipad twice now and can say this, l can wash my car far far quicker with this pad it's a nice bit of kit, the only downside of it is, its not as dense as their mitt pile quality is not as good but it's cheaper l flew around my car with it and if l am honest it washes parts of the front grille the mitt can't get to

    am i right in thinking the pad is the smallest, the mitt is the middle ground and then the largest is padXL.....
    i thought about getting a pad XL but think it might be a bit too much weight to be holding when washing the vertical sides to the car.

    i just use the mitt as a pad anyways, just fold the little wrist thingy in on itself

    Yeah it's the smaller pad l got from ultimate finish as a Freeby for buying **** over £60 it's a perfect size and far far easier to use than the mitt even when folded mate worth £12

    As far as quick detailers go QED is highly regarded as is common as muck Reload
    But again any quick detailer is just a quick fix ,on a freshly polished panel then wiped down with cleanser fluid l applied gyeon Cure its failing already after nearly 3 weeks as will most

    BTW @jassyo06 have you ever used BSD & any of the 'recommended' mixes ?

    BSD is somewhere between a QD & a full sealant anyways

    1. Gyeon Cure for topping up ceramic coatings and some good beading.
    2. Carpro Reset Shampoo - again a great companion for ceramic coatings but a good, thorough shampoo.
    3. Microfibre wash mitt - I don't do wet sheep.
    4. Gyeon Wet Coat - maximum laziness for top beading.
    5. Planet Polish Wheel Seal & Shine - great on wheels, works well on exhaust tips too!

    I'd have included Carpro DLUX for use on wheels as I was very impressed with how well it worked but as is was pro detailer applied I thought that might be cheating. :)
