    we have a car detailing and care section for this

    but...the answer is...for me...meguairs tech wax, and im sure a lot of people will agree (some will say meguairs carnuba, or autoglym)...anything more expensive and there no point for normal use imo

    Bit steep though...

    I stick to Meguiars and have no gripes with it, easy to use, nice finish, last long enough etc etc.

    Turbo Scott is right. In my experience, a lot of people swear by megs, but Zymol is just brilliant, do not buy the cheap crap from halfords though, spend a few hundred on some good kit, you will not be dissappointed, Oh and keep about 4 hours free of a weekend to do it.

    tech wax is a good one step product, as it cleans and waxes, so if you can't be bothered to apply polish, then wax, stick to the tech wax. If you want a really nice finish, you want to polish/glaze seal then wax. Depending on whether you ahve any defects to remove ie swirls, governs what you need. Preparation is the key, depending on how well the car has been cleaned int eh past, it might need claying and cleaning properly to acheive a decent finish.
