I use AutoGylm with a small mix of other products that have got good ratings in Auto Express. I'm also lucky enough to be good friends with a franchise owner, so I get all my AG at just over cost price. Maybe that's why I keep my 5 so well polished. :)

Meguiars Mitt
Autoglym and Triple Wax Shampoos
Turtle Wax ICE polish

sometimes it's about what's on offer
if MERS was/were(?) on offer i'd give that stuff a go

usually autoglym, i get cheap it from my local petrol station as Jo said it's more about whats on offer at the time, although i do like 'showroom shine' but only on a clean car.
p.s. micro fibre cloths and wash mitt.

Autoglym mainly. Love the super glossy polish :) also like Turtle wax nano wax- in the mad green packets, that does a great job of covering up the old spider lines :) nice protective coating, and cracking beading and it is very reasonably priced. The wheel cleaner is also superb. :)

The green label stuff is a rust inhibitor too :) I atarted using them after buying a set that was on special. The super resin stuff bought up the paintwork like nothing I had ever used (and I have always polished my cars since I was 17). I do sometime worry that I will have no paint left one day!

I`m running out of the Mer Xmas box I got as a pressie and starting to use Autoglym products.
The Mer roof cleaner was messy to apply and the sheen didn`t last long. The Autoglym roof cleaner is easier to apply, no mess either. Too soon to see how it performs.
Still using either Car Plan `wash and wax` and if I have more time, the Mer cleaner/polish.
I use Autoglym `instant bike shine` left over from my biking days, handy for a quick buff.
Since the arival of my Rota Cups, cleaning/polishing the deep dishes with Autoglym `wheel sealer` is a doddle...goodbye brake dust!!
Once I`m out of my existing products, it makes sense to sart using the Autoglym `resin polish` the Mer polish I`m told, is abrasive. Mer window polish is amazing, almost no need to use the wipers as the water beads off the screen and the bugs are easier to remove. :cool:

Autoglym super resin polish, together with Autoglym top -up shampoo. The shampoo is also used on the soft top too.

For the glass I use "Windolene" spray. It works a treat:thumbsup:

To degrease stuff, I use Gunk.
