Best Place To Buy?

I can't believe I'm actually asking this!
Where is the best place to get some cleaning products?
Shampoo and polish stuff is all I'm after.
Is Meguiars or AG the stuff to go for??

I use meguiars and ag, if you just need to give a quick polish over, you can't really beat ag super resin polish. If you wanna go a bit more ott, megs claybar, quick detailer, polish, then carnauba wax will do the trick.
I find the best shampoo is turtlewax car shampoo (white bottle, green label) is brill value for money. Look in morrisons ( 2.79 ish) rather than 5 in halfords. Hope this helps

Just the ticket, thanks Phil.
What about alloys? What's best on them?

I wash em with the shampoo, and only polish them every so often. Don't really bother with wheel cleaner, most are acidic and don't do ya wheels any favours.

I use neat truck wash on the wheels. Leave it on there 1/2 mins rub round with a sponge and some water and wash off. They clean up with minimal effort.
