Korrosol is the industrial fall-out remover, Surfex is a degreaser/APC for cleaning

Again, thanks for the advice. I was looking around last night for prewash & decontamination products (as basically I don’t have any, apart from the dodgy G3 mitt) and came across a ‘deluxe’ kit from BH:

https://www.bilthamber.com/detailing...-detailing-kit

Contains the following:

1 x auto-wash 300ml
1 x auto-foam 5L
1 x auto-wheel 1L
1 x cleanser-fluid 500ml
1 x cleanser-polish 500ml
1 x korrosol 1L
1 x surfex-hd 1L
1 x double-speed wax 250ml
1 x auto-QD 500ml
1 x auto-clay soft 200g
1 x auto-mitt
1 x large microfiber cloth
2 x app-pad
1 x wheel brush

Does this represent a good kit for the money? - £132.95

I’m wondering how and when my Menzerna stuff / Prima Amigo and HD Wax would fit in with the above and wether I’d be duplicating stuff. For example, the cleanser fluid & polish - if the polish is (as I understand) an AIO filler type polish, would it be applied after polishing with 2200, 3500 and 3800?.

I’m thinking the cleanser is the same step as Prima Amigo??

How well would my AG HD wax fit in on top as my LSP?

EDIT:

Just found a ‘lesser’ kit from BH that doesn’t include the following:

1 x cleanser-polish 500ml
1 x double-speed wax 250ml
1 x auto-QD 500ml
2 x app-pad
1 x wheel brush

About £46.00 cheaper and not really saving much on buying the above products separately on their own. Not really bothered about the wheel brush or app-pads. I have detailing spray, wax etc.

Bump. Could do with input soon and also where using my DA & Menzerna (2400, 3500 & 3800) fits in with the above kit? - presuming so far it would be after using BH cleanser fluid according to this from BH Web site:

In what order do I use the products in the Deluxe Detailing Kit?
Deluxe Detailing Kit products are to be used in this order;

auto-wheel
auto-foam (Rinse thoroughly)
auto-wash (Then dry)
korrosol (Power Wash to rinse)
While the car is still wet use auto-clay
Re-wash with auto-wash and dry
cleanser-fluid
cleaner-polish
double speed-wax

cleanser-fluid
cleaner-polish

As a guide

1: Wash Wheels and rinse
2: Foam car and rinse
3: Wash car with mitt, shampoo and rinse
4: Apply Korrosol to wet car, let dwell and rinse
5: Use Tar remover if needed and rinse
6: Clay car
7: Wash car with mitt, shampoo, rinse and dry.
8: If using DA to correct swirls with Menzerna do this now. If not go to step 10
9: Wipe down with cleanser fluid if happy with correction go to step 11 if not happy with results repeat step 8
10: Choice of applying cleaner polish by hand or machine.
11: Apply LSP (Wax or Sealant)
12: Clean all Glass and admire work.

Hope this helps.

Steve, just seen this post. I have a 2012 XF, and pretty much follow the advice you have been given above, with similar products. I hope your end result pleases you and your father, really that’s all that matters.

Just for comparison, I use (variously )
Korrosol
Surfex & ValetPro Citrus pre wash
ValetPro Bilbery wheel cleaner
Bilt Hamber auto foam & ValetPro ph neutral snow foam
Scholl S20 & 40 polishes
Autoglym SRP
Wowo’s wax off wax on, Collinite 915, Autoglym Ultra HD
Meguiars, Bouncers, Wowo’s QDs

I have also for around the last 3 months been using ONR with Sonax BSD (look in the Eco detailing section) and don’t think I’ve caused any issues with my paintwork.

A pic of mine after today’s wash, polish & wax
