Got dragged round shops last weekend & managed to wander off & found this gem.
It`s called Rinse Off Wax & is by Simoniz.
Gave car damm good wash them got out the new stuff.
It differs cos after you have washed the car & hosed it down,you don`t dry the car,but put this wax on straight away.Once you have got it on,rinse the car again then leather it down.You`ll be amazed by the finish ( I was ).
It really saves time & out of a 500ml bottle ,I only used about 50ml, so it`s economical too.
Oh yes,the cost.
Wait for it

2.98

You can get it from most spares shops although I got mine from Wilkinsons.
Defo get some more when it runs out.

You can do something similar with Mer I found out, I washed it, applied Mer whilst wet but once it had dried it smeared and was a pain to buff up to a nice shine, I then rinsed and chamoised, cam up really good!
Drawback being the 10 I paid for it, although it is easier to remove if applied to a dry car!.

Yeah, you can use a capful into a freshbucket AFTER shampooing.
I used to really like it, as you could apply it in bright sunshine, but now I have a Black car it shows up any smear etc...

I had some stuff by them years ago called Liquid Diamond.It came in 2 seperate bottles & you had to put one lot on then the other.It was good but **** of a lot of effort.This new one is a cream colour in a black bottle.

For a good base i use Autoglym polish.

For the shine and durability i use Lahege banana wax "this is a extremly easy to use wax" made for show cars, cheap no, but the car is done in 15 min and shines like it is new

Dont stick and leave white resedue on black plastic either

I`ve used Autoglym for years but the cost has gone up over the last couple of years which is why I started looking around.
Before I got the new Simonez product I used Liquid ice.This is a great polish as you can put it on even in bright sunlight although it is about 15 a bottle.Saying that,you don`t need much to cover a complete car.

i'm a bit anal when it comes to car cleaning, but because I do 25,000 miles a year to keep the car looking good it pays to use premium detailing products. I wax with Collinite 476 . This is an American wax which is used on boats and gives a high gloss finish. not easy to apply,but even on a daily driver will still look good after 6 months and bead nicely. I use Meguirs APC for cleaning external plastics and carpets.
You can see the shine from the Colliniteon this picture of my 11 yearweekend car -BMW z3.
