Looks great,similar colour to mine I think.
I like meguairs gold class wash with a lambs wool mitt.
Take your pick of polishes but poorboys is easy to use and dodo juice wax is nice to finish with.

+1 on Meguairs Gold Wash
Once you have the car nicely waxed this wash will not strip off the protective coat

Get some microfiber towels and a decent sealant like Opti-Seal. You will be good to go for a while! Also, use the two bucket cleaning method, I added a third bucket since I do my rims with it's own permanently designated bucket that never gets used for the car. Something about carbon or ceramic brake dust and paint I don't like to mix.

I find it easiest to wash my car in sections so that I don't get water spots. I will wash the entire front, then dry; the rear and dry; the middle and dry. If I had coupe like yours I would do top first, then front, then rear, then sides.

Congrats and welcome!

Thanks for responses. Seems I have a lot to learn with these cleaning methods etc, water spots have always been a big problem for me.

Already learning loads from these forums, dipped front grills !! Gold alloy wheels. My journey has only just begun !!
