    Poorboys or P21s

    I am utterly confused by the vast range of car cleaning products so I need some help.
    I have spent a bit of time on my 888 (Europa blue) using Maguairs products and I have now realised how crap Auto Glym is!
    I have washed it, clayed it, & applied the first 2 of the 3 stage paint system as I have yet to apply the stage 3 Carnuba one.
    The paintwork is pretty much unmarked as the car has only covered 4,200 miles in 5 years!
    I want to keep a nice finish on the car & I am hearing good things about Poorboys blue & P21s but not sure which one to use, also do I need to use a sealer & whats it for(Apart from sealing obviously)?
    Which is the better bearing in mind the P21s is twice the price
    The car is a good weather car only(Mainly for shows) and is usually stored over winter so what should I use & how often.
    Also what shampoo is best?

    The poorboys Nattys Blue past wax is very nice on the dark colour cars, but doesnt last as long as some others I found.

    Meguiars NXT Tech wax is very good and pretty cheap from Halfrauds.

    Not fussed about about longevity as it is garaged most of the time.
    Main priority is to get a glass like finish.

    What about the P21s, its twice the price but is it twice as good?
    What shampoo is best? Is Poorboys stuff any good, is it Slick Suds or something?

    i use p21s and theres nowt like it, they have been many tests done and p21s has out shone products at the high end. mine car looks like glass,although a sealant like poorboys is a gd choice.
    and i wax my car up to 3 times a wk in summer and once wk in winter and still have my same pot of p21s for over a yr now.
    go on google and search for reviews,pistonheads have some reviews from users. or
    http://www.gurureports.org/press/wax...2-release.html

    and p21s is a bargain at £19

    So the P21s is worth the extra cash then. Taking into account the products I have already used, would you advise I use a sealant aswell? If so, what is best to use with the P21s and at what point do you apply it?

    What is the best shampoo aswell?

    sealant is only really need for extra protection,as true carnuba doesnt last long,maybe a month,thats where tech wax/sealants come in. but i wax that much i never use a sealant
    tbh i use halfords shampoo as had some wicked reviews.
    as far is p21s worth extra, thats personal choice,to me it is by a country mile i have used most other so called waxes,and none come close to shine of p21s.
    p21s is up there with the likes of zanio,swissol etc thats y so many ppl rave about it.

    I use Turtle Wax Extreme Nano shampoo at the moment(The one in the bright green bottle) as I got a load of it on special offer. Seems to be OK but is it OK to use with the other products as I dont want to be stripping off the expensive stuff I'm putting on!
