detailersdomain.com has many good products that you can use to wash the car. Also Adam's polishes has a good section on their website with video showing how to detail the car from start to finish (including washing) I use the following for my car:

Uber no name microfiber cloths http://www.detailersdomain.com/10-Pa...6x16-_p_843.ht
Uber super drying towel http://www.detailersdomain.com/Uber-...wel_p_516.html
Uber wool wash mitt (comes with free adams car shampoo) http://www.detailersdomain.com/Uber-...poo_p_849.html
Sonax full effect wheel cleaner (this stuff works amazingly) http://www.detailersdomain.com/Sonax...0ml_p_324.html
Wheel woolies (for wheel cleaning) http://www.detailersdomain.com/Wheel...Kit_p_721.html
I also use the Gilmour foam cannon for washing as well as the grit guards at the bottom of my 2 five-gallon wash buckets (just get buckets from home depot)

You get 10% off at detailer's domain for being a member of this forum with the coupon code: BMW

Hope this helps
