Exterior - I use Meguiars shampoo with bilberry wheel cleaner.

Interior - Bucket with water and a little Flash. I don't like shiney dashboards.

Detailing world is what you want! The amount of products that are available are huge and lots of people will reccomend different things, so the best thing is to try a few different ones and use what you think is best!

For the record I use Meguiars Gold class shampoo with a wash mitt. Dry with a Dodo Juice microfibre towel, and use Poorboys or Meguiars wax[Y]

There is a detailing section on this forum that is fairly active and the search function brings up lots of posts on various products.

Meguiars:

Gold Class Shampoo (my defacto shampoo)

NXT Tech wax 2.0 (Top up protection in-between big cleans) - it can be a pig to buff off sometimes!!

Quik detailer clay bar kit - often on offer, smells nice clayed my car fine.

Meguairs applicator pads, picked up at a good price can't complain.

Meguiars Waffle weave drying towel.

Iron X - Stinks to high heaven but impressive iron deposit removal (really does smell be careful with it)

Duragloss Wax remover, sometimes I tape up othertimes I clean off excess with this.

AGlym Fast Glass - Interior and exterior easy to use polish.

Poorboys Black Hole, (for dark cars, they do have one for light colours too)

Connelite Wax and shamefully I can't remember the name of the wax I bought.

Cheap-o microfibers for applying various things.

I had recommendations for other things so only recently bought my first AG product which I honestly quite like (Bottle nozzle leaks a little but the product works well)

There are people on here who swear by the entire range and while I would worry that they were a jack of all trades master of none they dominate shop space which must mean it sells well.

AG stuff is ok but when you start to look into it there is far better stuff out there for the same money.. What your asking it could take a day to answer mate there is so much and all the stages of getting a good wet look shine from your paint..

Theres washing, claying, pre wax cleaners, polishing, glaze, sealant, wax, wheels, tryes, detailing sprays and interior

At the min my go to Shampoo is Wolf's chemicals WS-1N

And Interior 303 Aerospace Protectant

Pete,

Nice looking ride! Your a little shorter than I imagined though if you dont mind my saying, younger too.

Pic whore moment I shall not pass up [:D] purely for product potential illustrative purposes I'm sure you understand.
