budget stuff...

  Ph1.2 / VW Polo
Gonna buy some car cleaning stuff tomorow. but got a few questions..

1) is halfords ok to go to?
2) if not where
3) can i get abit of eevrything for £20/30 ?

like shampoo / drying stuff / polish / tyre shine.

bought a new car and wanna get a shine on :D
Halfords have 3 for 2 on AG stuf iirc.

You want as a good starter kit:

AG Bodywork Shampoo
AG Super Resin Polish
AG Extra Gloss Protection

Think they do a half decent lambswool mitt for not much so one of those. They sell the Autoglymm drying towel / synthetic shammy which is pretty good. Also autoglym fast glass and instant tyre dressing are both ok to.

As above, get:

- Grey Sheepskin Wash Mitt
- Halfords Waffle Weave Drying Towel
- AG Bodywork Shampoo Conditioner
- AG Super Resin Polish
- AG Extra Gloss Protection
- AG Vinyl and Rubber Care (for trim and tyres)

You should be able to get all of that for £30... ish

Dont think Halfords are doing 3 for 2 anymore. If your not in a rush for the bits check out

Tyre shine:

Id recommend Meguiers Tyre shine (get from Halfords)
Then get a couple of cloths from Halfords

ok cool, im not sure whats already on the paint though.
does it matter too much?
gonna give it a good wash first.

how longs it take to polish and protect it?
Once you've washed it, dry it and apply SRP then remove immediately. Then apply EGP let it cure for at least an hour. Then buff off.
