    I'll apply 2 coats of Supernatural and red mist on the M3 and see how it goes. I bought it from Mike last year and only got a chance to use it now haha

    I wait till the car is in the shade and then I:

    Car:
    Rinse with a hose on low pressure
    Wash with sponge using either Mothers or Chemtech Wash & Wax (Free from Superlap)
    Rinse off using medium to high pressure
    Use Generic or hot4's Chamois depending on whats closest
    I then use window cleaner + newspaper for all glass area's on car.
    Then go over black OEM with Mothers Blackout to restore colour.
    I also use Autosol to de-fog headlight mist (common with Skylines) and polish muffler tips etc..

    Wheels:
    Fresh bucket of car wash and do each wheel individually getting in all the small areas
    Rinse with medium pressure
    Chamois and polish with Mothers carnauba cleaner wax
    Use generic tyre shine as it always comes off...

    Interior gets done with a vacuum and Armoral..

    I try and do this once a week, but three cars is alot to maintain...

    5. Chamois
    6. If any marks stick out that I can't get rid of with washing, pull out the Claybar or ScratchX.


    (Also following only if I have wheels I want to take care of)
    a. Apply Sonax Wheel Cleaner.
    b. Wait then rinse wheels
    c. Use rag to clean off remaining dirt/dust on wheels.
    this ! although i use the two bucket method

    Weekly or fortnightly:

    1. Pre-rinse
    2. Wash with Autoglym Bodywork Shampoo in warm water with microfibre hand mit, in sections with a rinsing after each section.
    3. Final thorough rinse and do the wheels with Autoglym Custom Wheel Cleaner with a wheel brush and crappy sponge.
    4. Chamois dry with Autoglym AquaDry Chamois
    5. Treat plastics/rubbers with Autoglym Bumper Black and/or Vinyl and Rubber Care

    Every 4-6 months:

    1. As above
    2. Claybar with Autoglym Claybar kit
    3. Prep for wax with Autoglym HD Cleanser
    4. Wax with Autoglym HD Wax. Once a year Autoglym Super Resin Polish before the wax.

    If you can't guess I have a massive Autoglym collection

    Sexy beading:

    when cared about paint

    lambswool wash mit
    2 buckets
    leather chamois dry
    wet look cleaner/wax
    off with microfiber cloths
    damp micofiber cloth to get drit of interior
    303 protectant after it had dried


    when i got the lexus i decided to give it a proper wax to protect it, was oly going to do it once. Pretty much did as above, but instead of wet look, went over it once with ultimate compound, then again with meguires tech wax

    Two bucket method. Will polish the car with rotary/RO as needed, and apply synthetic sealant. Top off with Carnuba wax, and top up the wax every few weeks. Use 303 and Zaino products on the interior.
