Depends on colour really.

But Zymol cleaner wax from Halfords for about ?12 is quite good.

OR

Meguiars 3 stage (pink bottles)

www.speeding.co.uk

PS21s

you can buy this at www.seriousperformance.co.uk

Deffo the PS21 stuff, it's easy to use as well, before that the zymol car shampoo that you can get in Halfords is the dogs for the price.

Might help if you desribed the general condition of your car now so that people can advise you better....

The car is good condition, a few stone chips here and there but nothing out of the ordinary. The colour i think is called desert beige, id call it champagne colour. The thing is was filling my car up at the petrol station the other day and a bog standard golf pulled up behind me in silver and looked Shiny as to make me want my car to shine like that did !!

You can use great waxes and expensive waxes, but its more about the preparation than the final wax.

I suggest about 10ltr of Black paint to get good shine.[:D]

But really, I'd suggest using Maguiars NXT wax & P21S cannuba wax, you'll get a good shine from those 2.[:)]

Ash,

You'll never get a shine as deep with the beige colour, but you should get a resonable one with time using Maguiars & P21S.

I must have at least 70 coats of wax on her now, which all add to the deep shine you see in the pic.

Take a look at AUTOPIA.COM for their detailing tips, this should give you a good starting point.

Following Recardos suggestion, I'd use Deep crystal paint cleaner & follow that with the polish but miss out the cannuba & get some P21S from serious. The only GOOD Cannuba comes in solid wax form not liquid.

Feck me Jace that looks outstanding! Makes me sick as I've just put my black 32 to bed in it's garage for the night and it's just filthy. It so needs some tlc like that.

Praying for a fine day on Sunday so I can give it a seeing to! [;)]

I'd like to add that the service from Serious Performance for my P21s Wax and Cleansing Cream was excellent - two days after posting the cheque my order was delivered [^]

That looks fantastic. Mines being picked up and taken away from me next week [:(] but I think I'll give it a last going over with the meguairs and carnuba so I remember it in good form!
