My Car Wash technique, along with links to the products that I use:
Note: each item highlighted and underlined below will take you to the Amazon link, if you are interested.
Currently, I use a four bucket method (Chemical Guys Buckets, Dirt Pro for the bottom of the bucket, with rollers/dolly). Yes, 4 buckets. I prefer to have two buckets designated for the wheels/tires and two buckets for the car. Here are a list of the products that I am using, with links to where you can find them:
Adam's Polishes: Wheel Cleaner and Ultra foam shampoo with a foam gun attached to my pressure washer or you can buy the pressure washer kit.
Invisible Glass window cleaner (safe to use on tinted windows)
Lucas Slick Mist Tire & Trim Shine - I am about to change this to Adam's Tire Dressing
Sonax Alcantara Cleaner - for cleaning all Alcantara products
I ceramic coated the wheels, brake calipers, and hubs using Adam's Graphene Ceramic Coating or you can get the complete Graphene Ceramic Coating Kit.
The 911 GTS has Gtechniq ceramic coating and Xpel protective film on it and the Macan GTS has Car Pro Ceramic install.
The Macan has the Porsche rubber floor mats installed and I usually wash those with the pressure washer first and then use Chemical Guys' Mat ReNew - Rubber and Vinyl floor Mat cleaner.
For the exterior trim, I prefer to use 303's Aerospace protectant. I did apply Gtechniq C4 to all the trim pieces. So far, I love the C4 and highly recommend it. I used it on my 2006 Tahoe as well and it brought the faded trim back to life.
Note: I am not a professional detailer and definitely not an expert in this. I do my research, find the best price, and use what works best for me and my vehicles. Some products I do not recommend but none of them are listed above. I would never recommend something that I did not like myself.
