Check out Sonax products. Not everything Sonax is top notch, but overall their products are very good.

I like:
Sonax car wash
Sonax full effect wheel cleaner (and the new stronger version, if needed)
Sonax iron remover (instead of clay bar)
Sonax polymer netshield sealant
Sonax spray and seal to keep car looking good between polymer netshield applications

Follow the above and you won't need to do 4 hour wax jobs (with your collinites) more than once every 18 months, if not longer. Sonax also has great manual polish/waxes, but I rarely bother. I'm too old for this work with little long term results! Lol

Foam applicators work well
For washing - Rag Company cyclone microfiber mitts are awesome (Amazon)
I use a Mothers wheel brush and the BMW oem wheel brushes to get into the grooves. has good stuff too.

Enjoy your new car.
