    Tight budget

    Now i know this is almost likely to the most asked question here but I am just getting into car cleaning, and have just bought my new car.

    Now I am on a very tight budget of £50 and only have a halfords near me. I want to clean tomorrow and will be taking it to a realy good jet wash local to me for the @snow foam' and was etc so what products would you recomend to use after that to get the best result, protection and shine.

    Please remember although I will be shoping at halfords they do have that buy 2 get one free on all cleaning products.

    The car is silver if that makes any difference.

    Thanks in advance guys.

    Teo

    first of what have you got already,
    and product i can recommend as the offer is not on cloths and mitts so ill leave them out,
    megs gold class or nxt shampoo
    Ag Super resin polish
    for wax you could go for the nxt tech wax spray its not bad on protection but its a pain to apply think the AG HD wax might be out of you budget but if you could stretch thats probably the best wax you can get from there.
    Ag bumper care is not a bad product fro you trim parts and to be honest (will probably get slated) the Armourall wipes for the interior are not to bad either just make sure you get the matt not gloss.

    if im not at work and you want a use of some of my products or some help just give me a shout.

    Shame on you Mr T!

    Halfords giant shampoo & wax in one and then Turtlewax wet wax. Throw in some Wonder wheels and you are sorted!

    Haha.

    Wonder Wheels = knackered alloys Never touch it again, knackered two sets of my wheels now.

    Non-waxing car wash, AutoGlym SRP and see what reasonable wax you can buy, then some TurtleWax Tyre Black and a paint brush to apply it.
