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.
Thank you! These are very helpful suggestions--I do like the idea of saving time. Will check out detailersdomain as well.

I've tried the Sonax wheel cleaner (stronger version) and love it so you have to pick & chose.
I purchased a bunch of different WolfGang products but haven't tried them yet except the rinse less wash which is very nice especially in the winter. You can clean car in garage without house. I use the Costco microfiber towels. You can buy a bundle for around $17 so you can use and toss if you want at that price. We wash them with chemical guys detergent so we can get 2-3 uses before we toss.
I have a hole thread on leather cleaners I'll post here.
BMW Leather Maintenance
Thanks! Will try the wolfgang quick detail. The leather thread is very helpful--looks like you had good results with the BMW leather care products.
