Here's the list of what I use from my website, but haven't kept up to date with new products since I got the basics covered a few years ago. This is a copy/paste but I added some extra notes. Chemical Guys stuff is pretty good but I think it's expensive for what it is, but they are convenient since they are on amazon. For microfibers, all of mine are from Rag Company, they have sales several times a year. I was never interested in coatings, I prefer using sealant/wax.

Car Wash
Optimum No Rinse Wash & Shine
Optimum Car Wash
Wolfgang Autobath
Meguiar's Gold Class Wash

Rinseless Wash
Optimum Wash & Wax

Drying Aid/Spray Wax
Duragloss 951 Aquawax

Microfiber Detergent

Clay & Decontamination
Clay Magic Clay Bar (Not all clay bars are the same, the Meguire's ones suck)
Quick Detailer, Spray Wax, or Car Soap as lubricant
​Nanoskin Iron Free (Used sparingly, it very aggressive)

Sealant (I use sealants as a base layer, then put wax on top of it so it lasts longer).
Wolfgang Deep Gloss Sealant
Griot's One-Step Sealant
Pinnacle XMT 360 All-in-One

Meguiar's NXT
Collinite 845 <- This stuff is the literally best.

Soft Top
303 Cleaner
Renovo Ultraproofer (I prefer a brush on waterproofing)

Invisible Glass

Wheel Wax <- Reduce brake dust build up.
Black Magic No Scrub Wheel Cleaner
Armor All Tire Foam

Plexus (for the convertible Top Window)
Meguiar's PlastX
Mother's Back to Black
Griot's Black Shine (Works, but leavs an oily film behind)

All Purpose Cleaner (engine, wheel wells, etc)
Simple Green Aircraft & Precision Cleaner (aluminum safe for the engine, I still dilute it)
303 Aerospace Protectant (for plastics)
Blackfire APC

Optimum Paint Prep (prefer this to using IPA)
McKee's Wax Remover
​Blackfire Pad Cleaner

303 Aerospace Protectant - Dash
Meguiar's Gold Class Rich Leather 3-in-1
​Griot's Leather Care

*Do not use leather conditioner on any leather surface that is not regularly handled anymore (dash, doors, etc), Porsche uses a special drying process on these areas and conditioning them can cause defects. Use a damp microfiber to clean, and a light amount of 303 to provide some UV protection.*

Turtle Wax Interior 1 - Fabric & Carpet Cleaner
​303 Stain Guard - Fabric Protectant

Rubber Seals
1Z Gummi Pfledge <- If you don't have some, buy some to maintain all of the seals on the car.

Touch Up
Porsche OEM Two-Stage (In an artist fine tip paint pen)
Dr. Colorchip (I wasn't that happy with the results to be honest)

Meguiar's D300 Microfiber Compound (This stuff is fantastic)
Meguiar's Ultimate Compound

Menzerna SF3500 - FInising Polish
1999 Ocean Blue Metallic Boxster -
