If there's still snow around it, it will look an off-white compared to the colour of the snow.

I only used Meguiars Gold Class and a MF wash mitt on mine last time I washed it. Came up sparkling white, but last all of 10mins without decent protection.

Hi mate,

Have a look on http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/ thats where I buy all my stuff. Loads of people on here use it. Great service and it's not too pricey either.

I use Meguiars Gold Class Shampoo - it's really good. As for polishes, I use AG Super Resin Polish. Many on here don't rate it, but you're only meant to polish around twice a year and it does the job well enough for me. Wax wise DoDo Juice Light Fantastic is great for White cars. I used it on mine but I now use Collinite 476S as it is one of the most durable waxes and therefore perfect over the winter.

All depends on how much you want to spend as to how far in depth you want to go with the detailing. You can also clay, seal etc etc.

i washed my car today (was v muddy) and seemed to be a cream colour in places

I bought some cheapy £5 wipes from halfords and after a good rub, it seemed to come up a treat - all my panels are a lovely white again

I know it may not be the 'dream' stuff for the job, but it seemed to look ok for me
