    I used to use Auto-glym products but now I'm converted to Meguiars.

    To get a really good shine this is what I do.
    Give the car a good wash.
    Claybar the entire body, only needs ding once or twice a year.
    I use Meguiars Gold class polish, buff off using good clean microfibre cloths.
    Then I use Meguiars Quick Detailer spray. Spray it on & wipe off.
    This will give you showroom finish shine.

    Two words: Greased Lightning

    Quick, Easy, Very Shiny, contains Carnuba Wax for protection, best stuff i have ever used and i've tried a few!

    I get so boored polishing a car, with this stuff takes me less than 15 minutes and the copen is done, not a streak on it and best of all nothng seems to stick to it so it stays cleaner longer.

    I know im starting to sound like a salesmen but im not, i just really rate it.

    Wash with Autoglym
    Clay bar with Clay Magic
    Wash again and dry
    Polish with Klasse All in One
    Wait a day, wash and dry
    Harden with Klasse High Gloss Sealant Glaze
    Protect rubber seals and interior plastics with 303
    Polish glass (inside and out) with Wurth glass cleaner

    I am keen to purchase a foaming lance as my other car is a VW T5 van.

    The Copen is so small it is easy to keep in tip top condition. ;)

    I intend to treat the car to a full detail in the (Australian) spring. :cool:
