    I have used Mcquairs and Pinncle in the past but now I am using Menzerna for cut/polish and P2IS/OCW for wax.

    is that the yellow stuff? i just used up my megs gold class and bought some of that to replace it. megs ultimate wash and wax i think its called. i also use the megs tyre gel which is awesome. i have megs nxt wax but have only used it once on my FG. unfortunately i just don't get time to spend hours on my car anymore.

    i also bought some autoglym interior shampoo a while back and was less than impressed with it. a cheap can of repco faoming stuff actually did a better job.

    i also have a californian car duster for in between washes. still works well.

    Wax - Dodo Juice Hard Candy. If it can make my EF feel like new (it hasn't seen the inside of my garage since 2008), then it will work on anything.

    Polish - I've previously used Mother's three step system, but will only use it as a two step system, and keep the Dodo Juice.

    Obviously, both applied by hand.

    Polishes: Menzerna for when the Festool comes out, Autoglym for quick in between times
    Wax's: Dodo Juice (Supernatural or White Diamond) usually, but last time I used Autoglym's wax as well as gloss protection.

    Been a fan of Megs prof series for ages but starting to look at the expensives of waxit.... also Turtle wax Ice for pre show shine. Hot car, full sun.... wipe on and buff off. easy.

    I have used a range of megs (standard range, NXT gen and ultimate) and 3M and other various products in the past. I have just moved into the Autoglym and Bowdens range. Bowdens for car wash, window cleaner and degreser. Using the Autoglym super resin polish and have just bought their pro range for paint cleaner and wax blend and a gloss protection.
    One of these days i will 'man' up and get a buffer.

    I dont mind the buffer and the concept, its just i have seen so many horror stories and so many 'enthusiasts' like myself do it wrong, im just not prepared to take that risk on either of my cars. But i guess at the end of the day it really is no different to rubbing marks into the paint when you hand polish.
