asda - 'noodle' washmitt & drying towel
cloths - costco ones on ebay (or straight from costco if you are a member..)
shampoo - autoglym bodywork shampoo
clay - meguiars kit
wax - well, the worlds your oyster with wax really, if you want something from halfords for example then autoglym HD is worth a look ;)

I can recommend the asda noodle mitt - great item - and definitely a good drying towel is the Wooly Mammoth drying towel - IMMENSE!
autoglym shampoo is great - B&Q had them on 3 for 2 @ £5 each last month...needless to say I purchased 3.
A good clay is bilt hamber that I use...just using water as lube as well!
If you are just after protection whack some wax on...the obsession starts and register over on Detailing World... I used a sponge 8 months ago... now i have a wide arsenal of products and tools!

its so addictive...I consider myself as an absolute Newbie... but some of the results people get on DW are actually Amazing!
I have had a go at correction and done a fair bit on the car... but some of their 50/50 shots over there are so good...

Hi mate; you asked in my other thread where I get my gear from - Meguiar's, Autoglym, Collinite, Insta Finish, Poorboy's, Dodo Juice, ValetPro, Einszett, Chemical Guys, Eurow, Lake, Kestrel, RainX - the best car care - Shinearama

Shampoo - Insta Finish Wash n Wax
Clay - Stjarnagloss Mild
Washmitt - Eurow Sheepskin
Wax - Naviwax is good for the soft Japanese paint, but there really is an endless amount to choose from. Ranging from as little as just £6 right the way up to Robbo's favourite waxes, which are £1k+

Myself (Magic Detail: Welcome) and Heavenly Detail from here both use Shinearama. They are my sole suppliers infact, unless I am desperate for a specific product and they don't have it.. which is pretty rare tbh!

Its one of those questions that will get different answers as it is all personal preference, anyway here goes.

Shampoo - AG body conditioner
Polish - Gtechniq P1
Clay - Bilt Hamber regular (soapy water as lube)
LSP - FK1000P
Dring towel - CG Wooly Mammoth
Cloths - Costco
Wheel cleaner - Autobrite Very Cherry (non acidic)
Decontamination - Autobrite Purple Rain
Snow foam - Autobrite Super Snow or Magifoam

How deep are your pockets...LOL

Bilt Hamber Shampoo
Bilt Hamber Clay
Bilt Hamber Cleaner polish
Bilt Hamber Finis Wax

All you need
You can get those (minus the polish) direct from Bilt Hamber for less than £30. Absolute bargain kit though I've not had chance to use it yet.
