    I hope it's not black? My 2 week old black beauty looks like it's been off-road after 10 mins of driving at the moment

    Not sure what to recommend - Auto-Glym stuff always works for me!

    Hi James,

    It depends how far you want to go, if it were me I'd be doing the following: -

    Clay the car first and foremost.
    Get a decent shampoo (shampoo plus is what I use)
    Wash mitt

    As for products (assuming your doing it by hand) I'd go for Autoglym Super Resin Polish (will fill swirls etc) then Megs #21 (sealant) followed by Megs #16 or Collinite 476s (both are waxes)

    see my last reply in the following thread for directions on how to "spite shine": -

    PS there is more to it but I'm heading off to work so I'll get back to you later on if soemone else hasn't by then!

    get yourself over to detailingworld.co.uk and have a look on there, plenty of great advice. have a look through the detailing guides, and you'll get a sound base for washing the car correctly, without inducing swirls! two buckets, washmitt instead of old bath sponge, drying towel instead of conventional leather chanois.
