hi! welcome to the forum
i use meguires cleaning products, used to use autoglym but its a pain to get off black parts as it leaves a white residue
ice; first of all which model car have you got and what sort of budget

a good simple set up would be components in the doors (165mm woofers)
a subwoofer and a 4 channel amp, don't worry about rear speakers and some sound deadening to reduce the rattles/panel vibration

I dont want to spend alot...but no doubt if i have the money i will just go for it!

spend 50 quid on a gear knob alone so that kind of sets up how the rest of my car stuff will be!

If anyone comes accross a link to some deals put them up if you dont mind(y)

if its a good sound your after then dont go with sony, try JBL or some of the other well known ones, halfords sell a few, you could have a look in there and see what you like.,
and 50quid for a gear knob? i presume thats in GBP, thats about 70 euro:eek: ! are you mad?.,lol

for polish, you should only need to polish it once a year, there are hundreds to choose from depending how bad your car is. but the turtle wax coloured stuff is pretty good at filling in the gaps.

what you want is a wax/syntetic protection stuff. again turtle wax super gloss guard can be had under £5 a bottle. and one application will last around 3-6months :cool:

If you want cheap sound system you could always do what i did and go to Ebay.co.uk there's loads to choose from. I went on there already having a make of speakers i wanted in mind (Vibe) and seen them for half the price that i would pay at Halfords. The speakers i have and would recommend is Vibe sek 70 kevlar at the front, and Qb69 rear speakers in the back they are quite bassy but bleddy good, if you run all this with a black box 3 amp and a Blackair 12" sub with a monobox 2 amp it goes like a dream hope this helps.
