Cleaning your BMW

Does anyone have any suggestions for cleaning your BMW? I know BMW sells its own line of cleaner products, but are they just like anything else I'd buy or are they strongly recommended?

Any other products you'd recommend or steer clear of?

How is the BMW express wax?

Thanks, and I'm looking forward to cleaning the salt off my X3!

The BMW line of products are really good. Perhaps a notch above Meguiars (sold at WalMart), but below Zaino (sold at their website).

After cleaning, go to the detail forum and read up on polishes, sealants, waxes and detail products for interior too.

I would personally recommend cleaning the car with Meguiars Gold Class carwash soap and protecting with a synthetic wax (aka sealant) like Klasse or Wolfgangs Deep Gloss 3.0.
