So, what sort of stuff should one use to wash and wax ?
Having only just got my first Berlingo it is still shiny in that showroom sort of way despite being 3 years old and it might be good to try to keep it looking good for a while so any advice ?

How much time and money do you want to spend snow foam /clay/polish/wax/sealer/ there's some good water less cleaner's with carnauba wax in and use sealer after to make it last longer

I have no idea - I have never bought or used any sort of cleaner - I did use a bucket of water and some fairy liquid on my last car once and it never seemed to look dirty to me from that day onwards....!

I guess I don't want to spend too many hours nor do I want to do it too often - as for money, the cheaper the better. Guess I'll be lucky to get two out of three at best.

Fairy Don't mention fairy's when ron's about :eek:.He's often away with them. It's good for taking wax off not so good for the paint.
Use some was & wax then wipe it down then wax it with some sort of average wax of your choice leave for two hour's then put a sealer on like Turtle wax platinum series extra gloss this should last a good 6 months then repeat you can use wash & wax in between if you wanted to ?

Thank you Jed - I'll follow your advice as soon as we get a dry day....!

As you may be able to tell, I am not a big car cleaner, but do know that Fairy is not the best product to use on a car - the car in question was 16 years old at the time though !

I want to try to look after this car so will try harder and will go to Halfords to see if I can find wash and wax in the next day or two, or is it better to buy it elsewhere ?
