The best shampoo by far is Dodo Juice Born To Be Mild. It's won awards from detailing world. It's around £8 for 250ml. However it's not sold in halfords, so the second best would be Zymol natural car wash. Has 20% off (online only) in Halfords atm, so makes it £6.99 for 500ml. It can also be brought in store.

best stuff I've used by far is Autoglym Bodywork shampoo, really good cleaner, gets all the grime off :)

I use Meguiars Ultimate Wash & Wax. Admittedly it's not the cheapest on the market but it does an amazing job! The car feels like glass after you've washed it and the soap has the best smell ever :D

I use Zymol natural car wash with sheepskin mitt and two bucket method followed by autoglym's super resin polish and then ultra gloss protection. Wheels protected with autoglym's alloy wheel seal. All products are easy to apply and very easy to buff to a superb finish. Oh and a power washer too.
