    Anyone have any recommendations on products for detailing? This is my first nice car in some time (and lets face it, these are sweet rides!), and I'd like to keep her shiny. I need advice on everything from wax to tire shine.

    I recommend using a lambs wool mitt with a grit pad in a rinse bucket to wash it. its takes along time but its huge when your worried about swirl. research different methods about technique. its more important than whats products you use its how you use them. paint sealant is really nice if you can afford it. which products you use can be trial and error always test new products in small out of view areas. personally i like mothers wax, black magic tire gel. meguiars supreme shine for the interior. meguiars 'hot rims' for all wheels and tires as worked really well.

    Try microfiber mitts and the two bucket method. One for tires and one for the body. If you can afford it, get a foam cannon and a pressure washer. I use an airforce air blaster to dry my car. Get the pressure washer from Harbor Freight and get the 2 year warranty. The foam cannon from auto geek. These is a book you can buy there on how to detail your car. Good buy
