Car wash

just wondering what kind of car wash/wax etc you's wash your car with.
i bought turtlewax wash & wax the other day to see what that was like, just finished washing my car and so far im fairly happy with it but was just wondering what everyone else uses? and do you use a wash & wax in one? or do you buy them seperate? and what works best for you car? i was gonna get meguitars but its quite expensive compared to all the rest, does anyone use it and how does it compare to the rest?

Re: Car wash

On the XR I use Meguiars Gold Class gear... Bit dearer and isnt a Wash and wax in one but it does a very good job.

For my EA i use turtle wax when it gets its rare wash, seems good

Re: Car wash

I use Meguiars Gold Class Wash, Turtle colour coded Polish and Gold Class Wax.

Seems to work pretty well.

Kelly, theres a huge article on aufalcon.com about car care and washing if you are interested in reading it.

Re: Car wash

I use Turtle wax & wash,also use Meguires Gold Class and there's also another good product sold by VIP car care in Moorabbin called Auto Shampoo and Conditioner,i find all these products are excellent and fully recommend them as im a fanatic when it comes to cleaning the cars.
