Which Cleaning Product???

For the past 8 months I have been using the local polish team to wash the car.
I have a few days off this week so I'm think its time for a little tlc (a good wash/wax.) I have been through some of the threads and their are plenty.
Ok lets say 20 for some shampoo,chamios leather and wax. Wot would you guys go out and buy.???
Halfrauds is just round the corner from me and I see they have a 3 for 2 offer on the turtlewax and autoglym products.

Re: Which Cleaning Product???

i like the turtlewax nanotech shampoo, just make sure you don't use too much else it doesn't wash off properly.
aquawax after washing. you'll be back eating biscuits and having a cuppa after an hour, job done.

i really like autoglym, picked up a few trophies along the way using their products too... (including a runner up class win with a 67 cortina, and a class win with my Kawasaki GPz 550)

Re: Which Cleaning Product???

Mainly Autoglym for me as per the sticky thread at the top of this page. Ditch the chammy leather and buy a couple of quality microfiber cloths

Re: Which Cleaning Product???

If you didn't already, get some aquawax if your back for more stuff mate, easy way to get some wax on and a good finish after the srp!
