althought i wouldn't want to stick to one brand for anything (and i dont do valeting lol)
must admit ive swayed heavily towards chemical guys!

Wolf's Chemicals stuff is all superb. Everything I've tried is fantastic! From the shampoos to the wheel cleaners, to the polishes to the Nano coatings.

I love it all, so i would stick with their stuff for my own detailing needs

Even the drying towels are good

I've stuck to:

Dodo sour power for wash
chem guys pink detail spray (as I have it in bulk left)
megs #16 as LSP
lime prime as my polish
carlack twins for glass
autosmart trim stuff (the one that supposedly self combusts!)
and 3m tyre dressing.

That's my kit and I'm sticking with it from now on. Nothing fancy, just stuff I know that works!

Of everything I've tried, megs tbh have to be the best blend of affordability/cover all bases/performance and I'd have no problems staying loyal to just them tbh

Autoglym for me too, as I have mentioned before I have all the commercial products (good old halfords!!)

It gives as good a finish if not better than any other brand i've tried. I was loyal to Autoglym products when I first passed my test in 2002. It was only this year I returned back having tried many different brands and never being entirely happy with the finishes. Everything is catered for and I am not a detailer. Simply a car enthusiast who looks after his cars and loves keeping them clean and protected. Autoglym does this all perfectly for me.
