I was an advocate of Meguiars, until I heard recently that Autoglym had upped their game because Meguiars came over here and kicked their arse. I did use Meguiars shampoo religiously but bought Autoglym's shampoo and conditioner the last time I needed some and i appear to be getting much better results with that.
It's nice to support a UK company where possible IMHO.
U can't beat autoglymn shampoo found it the best and the reviews are always high. All the top waxes are good if you spend the time doing the car.autoglym probably quicker than megiuers to use. End of the day it's preference they all good apart from cheap ones. My favourite currently is formula 1 wax
I also use the no water washes and get a good result greased lighting,Williams and mantis. Expensive but quick
That's right allen40alt only use the resin every few months to remove tar and grime and rub very lightly with an applicator and use the extra gloss for protection and shine.and your right burty, autoglym have upped their game i've used autoglym for years and it is a lot better now.
I use Turtle Wax liquid...Before it, I apply the PTFE protection...Seems that is working nice together, water repellant is very powerful.Also the PTFE is applied only after a good wash (I use degreasing agents in water) and good dry.
Applied twice at interval of 4 hours leave the paint like glass...after use Turtle wax, is deep mirror.
Will have pics added when will have next treatment...now is very cold.
I guess the right polish/wax to use is the one you are happy with.
I like the Meguiars because it's easy to apply and buff with fantastic (well it pleases me) results.
It doesn't leave any dust in the crevices and you can apply it to the black mouldings/window surrounds with no white marks spoiling the finish. Many polishes/waxes say keep it off the trim.
It can also be applied in the sun. Many polishes/waxes say don't apply in direct sun.
There are many far better polishes and waxes but they usually cost a lot more. I've tried so many different types after more than 50 years of cleaning and waxing and Meguiar's does seem just about the best for me.
Here's my wife's 206. It will be 13 next month. I 'Meguiared' it on Sunday.
I use Autoglym products and the first thing I will do to my new 2008 will be to apply the polish then apply Autoglym High Definition Wax,the last time I brought a tub of that it cost £40 but well worth it as the rain just beads of it for month, so weather permitting on March 1st I will be hard at it.
