If your in New York its worth giving Phil at Detailers Domain a call ( http://www.detailersdomain.com/ ) he stocks a massive range of products including ours and will be able to give you some good advise on what you need.

Id say the basics you need to really step up the finish on a car is:

Clay bar & Lube

Then a decent shampoo and wheel cleaner, thats a good starting point, as for what ones"best" thats usually a matter of opinion.

I use a LOT of products. Meguires, Mothers, Griotz, etc. Lots of good stuff out there.

I like the Mothers aluminum polish over any others.

Meguires polish/wax are also my favorite.

For wax I use P21S concours pretty regularly. Its really good stuff. No additives or anything in it other than carnuba and some beeswax(doesnt even smell good like most wax). lots of great reviews too. Couples time a year I'll use spicNspan and some dish soap to wash off the old wax and apply a couple good coats. Gotta get a good cut and buff in a couple times a year too, get out scratches and imperfections bound to happen; some liquid compound, wax, and a glaze will get her done. Then lay a finish coat of the p21s and you'll be able to see all the numbers in a ruler stood up. When I'm just washin ill use meguiars car soaps, they have lots of suds and seem to work well.

Wheels I clean with bleche wite cut with a little water. Never used wheel wax for any reason. Tires I found an old bottle of this armorall exterior protectant that is awesome. Soaks into the rubber and you just buff it a little. Leaves a nice black tire, no retarded silicone shine and shit slinging everywhere. Smells and looks like eggnog or something of that nature.

Interior you gotta go with leatherique or lexol. Use lexol on modern leathers and leatherique on the old stuff. The pristine clean does work on everything inside though. I rock the armorall glass cleaner lately which is good, no streaks just gotta get something that isnt dusty, newspapers perhaps.

Gotta get on the mothers back to black for trim. Shit works real nice. Just kinda a pain in the ass to get it on even. For rubber window moldings and door seals and other rubber thing use Gummi Pflege. But that a damn good secret so dont go telling everyone!!!

For polishing (if i cant take it off and use the bench grinder and compound) then use some mothers polish with different buffing materials to intensify the grit(rag, sponge, scotchbrite) and wenol is good stuff, and then step it down to come wax buff compound and then some wax. Will be very shiny.

Those are my tricks. Make sure you have good supplies and tools too. thats another long list too.

Any malco products are real good especially the rejuvenator.

I've used a lot of them and i find that mothers products are the best. and griots if you have the money, i use their clay bars and i like the Mothers California Gold synthetic liquid wax. also I had a lot of great results from a meguiar's cutting compound or "swirl remover" i think it was labled as, i dont like their waxes though,

Welcome to 2013.

Not true, meguiars is a very reasonably priced company. We use it constantly.

The greatest thing is they are hands on in the detailing community. The greatest product to date I've seen is the DA microfiber paint correction system paired with a gv110 v2. No swirls + paint clarity and depth.

Meguiar's is good. I use it as well.
