I have a candy white Ibiza, what products can you recommend for a complete clean? Looking specifically for wax, something to clean the alloys and some interior and upholstery cleaner. Let me know what you guys prefer!

Thanks mate, was looking at more of a gloss but obviously with a bit of durability but not too bothered about that as much! Plan on just polishing by hand, and not really got a budget for the wax so whatever you recommend I'll have a look at, thanks for your help mate

I'd recommend something synthetic on white paint. Synthetic polymers give a smoother finish which will help reflect more light. Natural, carnauba waxes are a little rougher (at a microscopic level) and won't reflect the light as much.

Carlack Complete/NSC finished with Carlack long life would be a good shout

no pre wash? or another wash after clay? what about decontamination before clay like fallout removal and tar & glue remover to remove/soften thickest of any tar avoid any potential damage when claying? :think:

Getting great results with Bilt Hamber cleanser polish topped with Autoglym extra Gloss, awesome combo on white. I have used lots of different combos and this is looking good on good prepped paint.
