Default 3008 Detailing

I know this topic is large or vague but here goes, ahead of my new 3008 which is not even built yet i've been pouring hundreds into getting prepped to take care of the SUV with great detail, i'm listing below the things i've thus far bought and would like feedback and tips of anything missed...

1 x K4 Full Karacher
1 x 25m Karacher Hose Reel
2 x 5 Gallon Meguiars Buckets (Wash / Rinse(with Grit Guard at bottom)
1 x Smaller 10 Litre bucket for alloys
1 x Snow Lance
2.5L x Autoglym Polar Blast - Ph Neutral (for Prewash)
2.5L x Autoglym Shampoo Conditioner - Ph Neutral (Main Wash)
1 x Autoglym Alloy Wheel Brush
1 x Meguiars Lambs Wool Wash Mitt
2 x Meguiars Water Magnet Microfiber Drying Towels
1 x Dyson V7 Digital Portable Vacuum


There will be loads of other internal supplies like the sprays kit that is coming with the new car which will handle the inside and also the tyres.

Thanks for reading what i'm sure to most is a boring post.

P.s dont read too much into me using autoglym my friend is a Autoglym Rep so handy for discounts

I'm also an autoglym fan! May I suggest trying the new high definition shampoo. Fantastic stuff and smells good enough to drink!

Well spotted and indeed ideal for mitt washing(GLIDE), Contacted my friend at autoglym, he'll give me it for 14.50 a bottle so got a nice deal there.

Thanks Stevoxsi, Nice tip.

What about protection? Collinite wax is good and long lasting or for a weekly shine use megs quick detailer. Beads water and gives a shine and quick spray and wipe off method.
Super resin polish is good too for protection after washing the car.
Once or twice a year you'll want to clay bar it too to get rid of tree sap and tar spots etc.

You can spend 100s on car detailing. I know I did.
The k4 pressure washer is spot on. I have the premium version with the hose reel at the back etc.

That list will soon get longer. I have 3 shelves full of stuff including loads of cloths.
Asda do microfibre clothes. Quite big bags for 4 quid. Cheaper than Halfords and you get more.

Megs tyre gel is good too. 3 weeks and still repels water and smells nice

Thanks DavidB236,

Yes as the car is not even built and delivered yet the Wax or after polish is not on my mind just yet as it should be fully detailed and protected from the dealer but I know it will have to happen sooner rather than later and another yes someone who knows what there talking about CLAY BAR ... always a good indicator that a person knows how to detail correctly. I watched a youtube video on a guy using clay bar it is magic stuff does exactly what you need it to do get the welded on crap off basically.

and one last point going from nothing to getting a new car plus buying the above items my wife told me this very simple and very truthful fact, ENOUGH SPENDING on something that's not even here yet, I told her that its future investment and protecting that investment ... Classy rebuttal right

Sticking with the autoglym theme, the high definition wax I can also highly recommend. That and the super resin polish, or the ultra deep shine for darker colours. Spray wheel sealer good for the alloys, makes them easier to keep and tyre dressing good for keeping the new look on them.

I use autoglym glass polish for my windows.
It works well if you are using a dashcam.

Even after rinsing and drying I still get water marks. The Megs quick detailer is magic at removing these marks leaving a brilliant shine and takes no time at all. Worth its weight in gold.
Get yourself some dual pile microfiber towels for buffing wax / detailer spray and windows etc.
For the alloys I use Nigrin Alloy sealant.
