    Shampoo - Megs NXT Gen - Suds really well, £15.99 IIRC

    Clay - Megs Smooth Surface Clay Kit - £23.99 - Includes detailer, cloth etc..

    Polish - Autogly Super Resin Polish - £9.99 ish depending on size. Brilliant stuff!

    Sealant - Cleanyourcar.co.uk

    Wax - I used Megs NXT Liquid Wax but it wasnt brill, try ordering one from cleanyourcar.co.uk. Collinite or Pete's 53 are good products.

    Wheels - Megs Hot Wheels, Removes the grive from your wheels and makes them easier to give a wash, as it lifts the dirt away.

    Also from halfords, good to pick up bits for the windows, wheels etc. I recommend:
    - Autoglym Glass Polish, Absolutely fantastic stuff on the windows, mirrors etc.
    - Megs Endurance Tyre Gel - Lovely wet look tyres.
    - Good set of microfibres, applicator pads and drying towel.

    Thats some of the stuff ive used on mine, and if you look in my auto Biography you can see how the car comes up with these products. Highly recommend them, but eventually you will move away from Halfords once you have a bit more cash, and buy products from Cleanyourcar.

    Have fun, hope this helps

    Cloths you need to get a few microfibre pads for buffing the products off the car, a few applicator pads to apply the products, or I just tend to use another microfibre cloth. And then a drying towel comes in useful. Justh ave a look when your up there as they do packs of 3 of some things etc. Well worth the extra money on products though I think!

    Buy your products from detailing websites online like Elite Car Care or Clean Your Car. You will get more for your money and better prices.
    An example of basic products to go for:
    Megs Shampoo Plus
    Wash Mitt
    Drying Towel
    Clay
    Glaze - with fillers for hand application
    Wheel Cleaner
    Microfibres more
    Wax - Collinite
    - Victorias Concours
    Foam applicators

    They are pretty much the basics i would say but there is soo much more you could and probably will end up buying
