Personally im using "Autoglym Ultra Deep Shine"

Seems to do the job, though on the Car Care forum people seem to be pointing me in other directions as autoglym doesnt last very long, but ill research that when this bottles ran out

You could go on forever trying to find the perfect polish, ill probably stick with autoglym just because its easily available & its a good product, they do everything, granted its not cheap but id rather pay 7-10 and know ive got something good than 5 and wonder if its any good.

That said, i did buy some of the Meguiars Applicator Pads for putting on the polish as there washable & everything else seems to microscratch the paint, and polishing cloths remind me of my grandads vests & usually thrown out after 1 polish..... also im thinking of trying Turtle Wax Ice, just because it seems to be a clear polish so wont leave white marks on the plastic etc like conventional polishes, i'm going to ask on the car care forum what they think about that soon.

After a polish, when you see some dust whip out a microfibre cloth and it'll amaze you how good it is!

Infact, those are covers, models with fogs have ones with holes in and yours don't.

I noticed when changing my fog bulbs that you just unscrew the cover off.

So you could take yours off, install foglights then fit the ones designed with holes in for fogs.

Look closer at them, you'll notice they are seperate from the rest of the grill
