couldnt believe the amounr of replies when I checked. and even better, most people seem to be agreeing!!
so i think i'l try this combination out:
Chemical Boys Maxi Suds II (dont wan to chance ruining my collinite work with NXT) on with a Lambswool mitt(worth it?) (Then maybe Johnsons for the summer) weekly - Yeah sounds like a plan to me [y], certainly worth investing in a mitt
Dry off with a waffle weave towel - maybe sonus wonder dry depending on price - Again [y], cheaper alternative are the Meg's water magnet or Poorboys Waffle Weave
chemical boys instawax on and off with a microfibre weekly - [y] or as jace said use a detail spray
Endurance gel on bumpers and tyres with a microfibre weekly - [y] exactly what I do but a quick tip is instead of using a microfibre get an old sponge and cut a 2cm x 2cm cube and use that instead. I found the microfibre soaked up alot of product so alot of wastage plus i find the product is easier to spread around the tyre using a sponge
then collinite 476 once a month - [y] apply using a foam or microfibre pad
its gonna be a little more than I had started out after I convert prices to euro and pay for shipping - dont know where I can get any of this locally besides the towels and mitt in Halfords, and maybe collinite? - If you after online shops then click the link after my signature - traders i've used are Alex at Serious Performance, Tim @ CleanYourCar, Johnny at Clean&Shiney & David at CarWaxnWax.
Cheers for the offer of the groupbuy andy - but I'm not sure if i need wheel brightener now - the wheels are 3 weeks old (New style R32s from Wheelbase), I stuck a coat of Hard Shell wax on them the day I got them and its still working so they look as good now as they did a whole 3 weeks ago! would I need brightener then? or is it more for restoring a shine after a long time? - Nah if you've protected your wheels from day one and keep on applying that protection then they shouldnt need a product like Wheel Brightener, the dirt/grim should just come of with your normal shampoo but use a different mitt for the wheels. Wax for wheels - Poorboys Wheel Sealant or Chemical Guys Wheel Guard, the standard wax you'd use on the car bodywork wouldnt hold up to the temperature the wheels are subjected to.
Another thing you might need is 3-4 microfibre cloths to remove wax. I dont know if you've thought about cleaning the car windows, for this is use AutoGlym Fast Glass, heard the Meg's NXT glass stuff is good to.
that does leave me with a question about what to use on the wheels tho, maxisuds and instawax too be okay?
Thanks everyone for your time
You must be buying it from the wrong place Andythe TFR costs ?25 for a 1.5 ltr tub that dilues to 30 litres... you then use this 20 to 1 as and when you use it.. Mine has lasted 3 years and I have 3 cars and a van to do...
Was thinking that myself..
tell me more whats this foam lance... sounds easy, and lazy which I like.... its non caustic by the way...I like my blue calipersis yours the caustic or non caustic one andy?? as on your new r i wouldnt be using the TFR at all just be using the gilmour foam lance with super snow foam shampoo and karcher jet it off  keep it nice and dandy throughout the winter months..
