This is all I use, I can't say if they have it on your side of the pond.

I haven't used wax since the turn of the century. After polishing I seal with this:

I do my paint correction and polishing with Menzerna products as well.

Turtle Wax

I use the budget items because they work just fine as other expensive brands.

I don't stick to any one line of products, but will pick/choose what works best for me.

I too do all of my own detail work to include the polishing. I've been trying out a lot of different polishes, but I think I'll go with the Griots BOSS line going forward.

For cleaning I use Optimum Car Wash and Griots wheel cleaner. For everything else I've got stuff from McKee's 37, CarPro, Poorboys World, and probably others.

For a wax/sealant I've used Collinite 845 and I'm testing out Wolfgang SiO2 Paint Sealant right now, but I'll typically apply a ceramic coating.

Most dedicated car detail company's you can't go wrong with . Now with that being said I usually look at Adams geyon car pro as my go tos right now. But is any better than the rest who knows its all personal preference I recommend trying a few see what you like.

When shopping around, I'd suggest going to places like Autogeek, Detailed Image, or Detailers Domain.

Those sites typically carry only quality products and will have a decent selection across a wide price range. Most of those sites also will test out the products and won't sell them unless they are confident in the quality/brand. You don't get that from Amazon...though I wouldn't be against doing a cost comparison on Amazon once you find something you like.

On that note Amazon doesn't always have the best price, especially if you're not a Prime member. I use Brown Royal for my wheels and engine compartment, and I found the best price for it was $32.90 shipped for a gallon direct from the maker, Flash Auto Detailing Products. It was on Amazon for $19.99 shipped for a quart.
