I'm a Autoglym fan myself. I use the Aqua wax on my wife's car (Mazda) as she has paintwork protector fitted by dealers. It comes up shiny with minimal effort and doesn't matter if you get it on unpainted plastics or rubber.

I prefer using Super Resin Polish on my Ateca though as it gives a superior shine to aqua wax, more effort but worth it in my opinion.

I use the two bucket method and a noodle microfiber mitt for washing and always rinse off with rain water to avoid streaks.

Does the aqua wax (spray) not go on after the polish. Been looking at vids on YouTube very sad ha ha. I gave are car a quick wash and polish the other day came up Loverly. Was looking at the aqua wax for the water beadding to stop water sitting on it. Also use rain x in the windows. Need to get a better wheel brush to get in to the back of the wheel

I agree with you can spend loads, but the Gyeon bathe plus is about £20 a litre but you only use about 3/4 of a capful in a bucket so lasts a while

Woohoo someone else loves cleaning there Ateca. Mine gets the full treatment every two weeks :D

I also use a foam canon and the two bucket wash. I really like the auto finesse products they work well with my white paint work. Autoallure shampoo is also good has no added waxes etc.
