Poorboys super swirl remover 2.5 is excellent at removal fine scratches.

Clay bars are the ****. Its basically a lump of soft white clay and the kits come with a spray thats basically speed detailer. You wet the paint with the spray and rub the clay bar over it. Any surface contaminates that stuck to the paint will transfer to the clay. Its a bit of a shocker when you wash the bike and you think its spotless to then see the clay turn black with all crap stuck to the paint.
Autoglym and Megs stuff is good as far as the mass market goes but apart from AG Super Resin I havent been that impressed. I dont like to use polish unless I really have to but when I do its usually Poorboys SSR2.5 or chemical guys all in one.
Wax wise- there's detailers out there who would quite happily kill each other such is the rivalry with different brands. However anything carnuba based will do. My choice for decently priced ones are Poorboys Natty paste, Optimum spray wax, Clearkote Moose carnuba wax (can also be used on rubber and trim), Chemical Guys Butter Wet wax.
If you are a real playboy then you could splash out on Celeste Dettaglio Paste.
