    if your on a budget, id say autoglym and can get it at halfords on 2 for the price of 3.

    A/G Shampoo Conditioner
    A/G Surface detailing clay kit
    A/G Super resin polish / Ultra Deep Shine polish

    cheapest one is free in halfords, then id get the petes 53 wax. heard nothing but good things.

    from my experience with the A/G polish iv had best results by squirting a good 50p size amount of it on a part of the car then massaging it around the paint for about 2 minutes until its hazed then buff it off, move on to the next bit do the same then when the whole car is polished go over the car with a clean microfibre cloth and gently buff it up to bring it up nice and deep.
