Angelwax is a very good range worth looking into in my opinion

Must haves? Two buckets, a decent wash mitt/pad and a car specific shampoo, throw in some Sonax BSD and that’ll give you some protection between washes. Should still have change left over from a twenty.

After that everything else is about correction and enhancement, where you will get 100 different answers from 100 different people.

Buckets 97p each and M/F noodle mitt £4 from B&Q. Meg’s Gold Class Shampoo £5.42 and BSD £7.70 with current discount code at ECP. Comes to £19.06p. That leaves more than enough for a Mars bar.

If you take a wrinkly with you to B&Q on a Wednesday you could even save another 59p off that. Now we’re getting into Toblerone territory.

To be fair you need something to apply the BSD with....! But shows that a basic level of car care does not have to be very expensive.

OP, I think the only thing that maybe could be considered "obsolete" might be some of your abrasive polishes, depending on which ones (if any) you have. I think considerable progress has been made in extending the range of modern polishes, enabling them to cut harder while still finishing well.

Poundland sell microfbres, but that does put me 4p over budget!

Ok, being more realistic, there are some core essentials that you need to do a basic job but after that the equipment and products that you need depend more on what it is you wish to achieve, what your budget is and how much time you have available to use them. Not everybody has the time, finances or even the actual need for a DA kit with a full range of pads and selection of polishes for example. Depends on your circumstances and what you want to do.
