    meguairs do a 3 stage system,you'll need to use stage 1 which is good for getting rid of oxidization(which is the main killer on red cars), you can use your own polish & then wax if you dont need the full 3 part system.
    personally i would use meguiars XLT wax,it really brings out the red colour on my 10yr old astra

    Brett how much do you wanna spend , products and wax and tools does not = cheap.
    Megs stage 1 to 3 etc is only a quick fix , its durability is poorer than a chocolate bar in the sun , if your looking for something to last thats cheap on red then you need something like super resin polish as mentioned, not that i like it i dont , its powdery although if applied with a wet applicator this stops this but it does a good job then top up with FK1000 which is one of the best cheapest sealents on the market.

    This product will give you the slickest feel on the paintwork you,ve ever known and is the DetailingWorld product of the year 2009.

    A great sealent for red.
    And before the posts come it is a sealent not a wax as stated on the tin
