    Bilberry Wheel cleaner and detailing brush
    Polish - Auto Glym Super Resin Polish is a good all rounder
    Clenser - Dodo Juice Lime Prime
    Wax - Dodo Juice Purple Haze Pro or Banana Armour
    Quick Detailer - Dodo Juice Red Mist or Zaino Z6

        Just get the normal PH neutral shampoo.

        I get most of my stuff from www.i4detailing.co.uk and use the discount code:

            Meg's APC (All Pupose Cleaner) for the dash, the quick detailers as listed above will be fine for the piano black, i actually wax those parts And for the leather i'd reccomed Zymol leather clenser. All applied with microfibre cloths

              It all depends how far you want to go, if you just want to maintain it then some good wash kit would be the key, couple of buckets, lambs wool mit, PH neutral shampoo (id recommend the Dodo juice ones) a good drying towel and some QD.

              If you want to really go to town on it get your credit card ready to take a beating

                Agree but first you need to have something mon the car to maintain and using QD's isnt good for months on end, wax / sealants need to be re-applied

                  If you do nothing else but wash your car, then washing in a safe and proper manner and using a QD is better than a sunday splosh over with halfords shampoo and a sponge, you know what im saying. lets not pick holes.

                  We detail cars every day and take care of motors worth more than the average house in the UK id always properly detail a car wash clay machine polish (of some degree) pre wax. seal, and then maintenance would be up kept regarding the protection, but not every ones needs/wants are the same and not every one has the time or money to pump in to tones of detailing gear, i personally believe you should start at the basics and thats the wash stage, once you can maintain your cars finish properly by a carful wash procedure then go on to the rest. walk then run.

                  Best Snow foam is by far Bilthamber, hands down

                  (thats not a dig, i just thought i should justify where im coming from)

                    I know what you mean mate and some protection is better than none but for the sake oof £20 for some CG's Petes 53 wax its well worth it to just wash and wax
