Looks really good, at least when you start on a good base it’s easier to keep it clean with a weekly rinse

This is the idea, but I am not so sure; the detailer said that it will not need redoing for 18 > 24 months (the Autoglym treatment).

If you use hydrophobic shampoo and detail sprays it should prolong the life of the coating

Hi there, I have always used Autoglym products on my cars, I have the Ateca excellence in Nevada White and use bodywork shampoo to start with and aqua wax the car while its still wet then give the car a good second buff using Autoglym polishing cloths, a lot of people might think that Autoglym and other quality cleaning products are expensive, but just think what you paid for your car.

Alloy wheel deep cleaned using a non acidic wheel cleaner & various detail brushes & sealed (wheel removed and cleaned)
Alloy wheels polished and high temperature sealant applied
Bodywork bathed in a pH neutral shampoo using a deep piled wash mitt
Bodywork dried using a plush microfibre cloth
Tyres degreased and a long lasting tyre dressing applied
Wheel arches deep cleaned & dressed
Exterior Pre-Wash
Snowfoam deep shampoo of bodywork, rinsed and dried
Tar removal treatment
Fallout & Iron removal treatment from manufacturer
Clay Bodywork
Hand Polish Bodywork
Engine bay clean, degrease and dressed

ArnP,
Thank you for the caveat , but I hope that the order he gave me was not the order in which he did the jobs. In fact, I am quite certain of it for he did a lot of the interior first and then some bodywork and then back to the interior again. I will, however, ask him, for he is a friendly guy.
