Basically looking for what products you guys use to keep you car tiptop. What car wash, sealants and waxes do you guys think are the best?

There are a ton of good products out there, but I mainly use:

Wash - Meguiars Ultimate Wash & Wax
LSP - Wolfgang Füzion
Spray Wax - Meguiars Synthetic X-press
Sealant – Wolfgang DGPS 3.0

There is a good write up on how to wash your vehicle. It is at http://www.detailedimage.com I plan on using that method from now on. I use Kit car wash right now but I use Meguires for everything else.

Yep, their website is a wealth of knowledge. I would encourage everyone to to visit http://www.detailedi...etailing-Guide/ if they want to learn how to properly care for their vehicle. George at Detailed Image is a huge wealth of knowledge and their service is top notch. And not that I get any commission off it whatsoever, mention that Shane from G35Driver directed you there. :)

if you really want to get serious about it, join a detailing forum. There are several good ones. Some are store-operated so they tend to promote what they sell. Others are not but have sponsors. The first one on the list is neither sponsored nor store operated although I am a moderator there so I may be slightly biased about how great it is, LOL.

www.live2detail.com
www.detailingbliss.com
www.autogeekonline.com
www.truthindetailing.com

Autogeek has a ton of videos and articles outlining many different processes and products. Just be aware they make every product on there sound like it's the second coming of Christ. You'll need to cut and paste into your browser.

The local "mop & slop" does a great wash job and the clear coat gets the best attention by staying in my garage. Almost 6 years old and looks shiney and bright!  When I get ready to trade or sell, I'll spend $150 and get it detailed.

I gave up waxing cars many years ago--- unless you have nothin better to do with your time, wax away!

Klasse High Gloss Sealant Glaze, far better and longer lasting than any wax I've used.

This. I use Adams for everything except for wax. I haven't tried their Buttery or Americana waxes because I'm still going through my supply of Pinnacle Sourveran. It's the nicest carnuba wax I've ever used. I have photos posted after a recent waxing of my Ruby Red Edge on these forums somewhere.

Been using Klasse since 2001 and have been happy with the results.  Especially when a good carnauba wax is layered on top of it.

I just added Pinnacle XMT 180 to my stable.  Reminds me of Souveran, but less expensive.

I forgot to mention that the XMT180 has a smell similar to grape Kool-Aid.

For wax I like to buy - Turtle Wax (have used this for years)

 

I am not big on hand washing my car only because I'm so busy, I usually visit a car wash with MacNeil Wash Systems equipment.

 

But....if I had to hand wash or had time for it I hear that Meguiar's products are superb!

liquid glass all day every day.. makes the car look wet and smooth as glass.. the more coats you use it actually builds layers of protection.. it's not a wax either.. some special formula.. use it on all my cars.. not cheap but not crazy expensive either!
