    The best stuff is not something you can simply pop to the shops and get. It all depends on your budget really.

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    as above mate, megs smooth surface is a good kit or beginners. Don't use the QD as lube though, mix up some water and car shampoo in a squirty bottle and use that instead, and just use the QD as a detailer.

    As for polish, AutoGlym's Super Rein Polish is one I always have plenty of. Finish this with some Extra Gloss Protection, and it will tide you over until you buy some Collinite 476s, which will give you longer lasing protection, and shines quite well on silver mate.

    What do you apply your collinite with and take it off with mate? Also what do you recommend for cleaning seats and carpets and whats the best method of doing it?

    Cheers
