Cool New kid on the block

Hi,
Located in Brisbane, Australia. Have just purchased a new CX3 Akari Manual FWD. "Akari" is the top spec model in Oz. Looking to gain info on a couple of topics from the forum once the vehicle has been received.
I am little curious what members use to maintain, protect and to keep the bumpers/wheel arch plastics looking as new.
Carpro Perl has been mentioned.
Await your recommendations.

Welcome, nice to see another manual driver. What colour did you choose?

I've been using Autoglym bumper and trim gel as well as a pencil eraser to remove wax and polish runoff and they look brand new.

Welcome and congrats on the purchase!

I use Griots Black Shine and Restorer. Mostly because it works and I use Griots as my other details supplies. Exception being Lexol on the leather seats.

G/day Neil and Welcome to the forum. I'm from Melbourne.

I used Meguiar's Deep Crystal Polish and Collinite Wax. Must make a point here that anchorman had mentioned. Apply the wax and wipe it off "quick smart" (quick like) :-))

I also use Autoglym as mentioned by drs above.

You only have the right of way if the other driver gives it to you
