I've just stocked up on a load of auto finesse stuff, just done the Mrs civic type r in it and it all seems good so far.

Avalanche snow foam
Iron out
Lather
Glisten
Wheel clean
Tyre shine
Crystal glass clean
Total interior cleaner

Also bought some grit guard buckets,lambs wool wash mitts and a load of micro fibre towels.

Happy with the results and easy stuff to use,got it from my local Halfords when they had a sale on.

Need a new autobright snow foam lance now though as mine has stopped producing foam for some reason,water still comes out so it's not a blockage.

The expense never stops lol

Collinite 476 was my favourite.
I had a ceramic coating put on 6 months ago which is lasting well.

remove the gauze and clean with brake fluid/acetone, remove the limescale and rinse, refit and have a like new lance again.
Jump 2 mins in for gauze.

For washing you can't go far wrong with Gwash from gtechniq or Q2M bathe from gyeon bot are great lots of suds very concentrated and will remove dirt without scratching.

As for polish it's important to actually understand what a polish is and what it does. Colinite mentioned above is a synthetic wax.
