Cleaning Leather/ Roof and Car Wash/Wax help

I want to clean my Boxster. There are so many dam cleaners and crap. I don't know what half of it is.

Can you guys recommend good quilty products for the following

1. Washing the car

2. Waxing the Car

3. Cleaning the plastic on the convertible window

4. Cleaning the Convertible Fabric top

5. Cleaning the leather seats.

6. What kind of Microfiber towels

Do the all in one products wash and wax together. do they do it well. also I see a lot of adds for some clay stick.

Thanks for the help

A lot depends on what color your car is. Mine is black. I think I've tried most of the best products out there and this is what I've come up with:

Wash - P21S Bodywork Shampoo
Clay - Clay Magic
Polish - P21s Paintwork Cleansing Lotion
Wax - P21S Carnuba Wax
Convertible top care: Renovo Soft Top Cleaner/Reviver
Plastic window cleaner - Renovo
Plastic window polish - Plexus Plastic Polish

See pics of my car here:

You can get almost all of this stuff from autopia.com. You can order Renovo from http://www.renovousa.com/.

griots for fine automobiles

everything you need is at www.griotsgarage.com ive used many brands but staying with this. cleans and protects everything. the kit is pricey,but i purchase the solutions and main items. towels, cloths and brushes can be bought for a fraction of the cost at local retail store.

Wax, cleaner, clay, from Zaino Bros. Absolutely the best I have ever used. Car looks like a window into another world! Plexus for the rear plastic window. Not sure of other window cleaners as I have never tried others. But...plexus does work! Same for the top cleaner and protectant. I have only used "Porsche" cleaners and protectant. It seems O.K. Top still beading after 5 months! Car still beading after 8 months!
