Basically everything you could need to detail a car thoroughly and effectively
Our Connoisseurs Detailing Kits are the perfect way to start off your detailing journey with convenience. This kit contains everything you need from start to finish, at a great price.
The kit includes the following:
1 x 1-Litre Citrus Power – RRP. £9.95.
Auto Finesse Citrus Power is our gentle but effective bug and grime remover. It works to remove contaminants with ease, without the need for scrubbing or deteriorating wax or sealant layers. Its gentle nature means it can be used to degrease motorcycle engines and lacquered door shuts, as well as enamelled badges. It’s safe to use on paintwork, glass, as well as plastic. Spray the formula onto affected area and allow to dwell for several minutes and jet wash off.
1 x 500ml Imperial wheel cleaner – RRP. £8.95.
Our specially-formulated wheel cleaner Imperial is acid-free and features a mix of cleaning agents and degreasers which break down brake dust and road grime from wheels. Jet wheels off to rid them of any loose debris and spray Imperial liberally over wheels and tyre surfaces. Allow to dwell for several minutes, using one of our wheel brushes to agitate the surface. Finish by pressure washing off. Its highly-concentrated formula is safe to use on all modern coated wheel finishes, as well as all painted, clear-coated, and powder-coated alloy wheel finishes. It’s even gentle enough to use on tyres. Don’t apply Imperial if wheels are warm, or in direct sunlight or extreme cold temperatures.
1 x 1-Litre Avalanche Snow Foam – RRP. £12.95.
Auto Finesse Avalanche Snow Foam is infused with our Citrus Power bug and grime remover to make its foaming pre-wash solution the ultimate in pre-wash cleaners It effectively loosens and removes road grime prior to contact washing, doing most of the work for you and removing contaminants that may otherwise be moved around the vehicle during contact washing - thus inflicting those all so often seen and irritating swirl marks. Our snow foam is for use in conjunction with a pressure washer foam lance (best results) or a pump spray bottle or garden hose foam lance. Cover the vehicle from top to bottom. Leave to sit for approximately 5 minutes, allowing the product to attack any surface contaminates, then jet-wash off again working from top to bottom. Avalanche won’t breakdown previously applied protection such as wax or sealant.
1 x 500ml Revolution Wheel Soap – RRP. £9.95.
Revolution is our advanced deep cleaning wheel soap designed to break down brake dust and road grime, while being gentle on painted, polished, anodised and other specialist finishes. Simply add 2-3 capfuls to a bucket of fresh (cold or warm) water and liberally apply to the wheel’s surface using one of our wheel brushes. Finish by rinsing thoroughly. Dry off using the included microfibre towel.
1 x 500ml Lather vehicle shampoo – RRP. £11.95.
An absolute must in any detailer’s bag. Lather is sealant-safe, pH-neutral and smells of tangerine and features highly-concentrated lubricants. Coupled with a good car wash technique such as the two-bucket rule, this translates to swirl-free washing. Lather comes neat, but can be diluted down to suit your needs. The dirtier your car, the more shampoo you’ll need to use. Be sure to use snow foam first to rid the vehicle of any loose particles that could swirl-mark your paint.
1 x 500ml Iron Out Contaminant Remover – RRP. £11.95.
Like ObliTARate, Iron Out can be sprayed onto the surface and left to dwell in a touch-less manor. Iron Out will attach its self to any iron particles and begin to remove them. Whilst working, Iron Out will change colour to flag where the surface is contaminated. Just spray Iron Out directly onto the yellow foam pad (also included in this kit) and wipe the product on a small section of your vehicle’s paint or wheels. The solution will turn blood red when it reacts with Iron. Allow to dwell for a few minutes before jet washing off. It is suitable to use on all exterior surfaces, including paintwork, aluminium, magnesium, stainless steel, anodised finishes, chrome, glass, plastic, and even rubber.
1 x 200g Clay Bar – RRP. £14.95.
Everyone should have a clay bar! Ours is made from an ultra-fine grade of natural Kaolin clay and comes as a 200g block. It effectively removes both organic contaminants, such as tree sap and bird droppings, as well as inorganic contaminants such as light tar or iron deposits. Before claying, make sure the vehicle is clean. If you have a lot of tar spots, it’d be wise to use dedicated tar and iron fallout removers such as Auto Finesse ObliTARate (included in this kit) or Auto Finesse Iron Out. Used together with Glide (included), rub the clay in circular motions across all surfaces of the car to remove any embedded road grime.
1 x 500ml Glide Clay Lube – RRP. £7.95.
The Auto Finesse Glide clay bar lubricant has been designed to make clay barring your car much easier and efficient. Its special blend of slip agents help to encapsulate debris released during the claying process, and allow the Detailing Clay Bar to slide across the surface of the vehicle with ease. This greatly reduces the chance of marring.
1 x 500ml Revive trim dressing – RRP. £7.95.
Revive is a highly durable solution to be applied to exterior trims. It is silicone-based and has been formulated to bring life back to exterior plastics. To darken and restore colour to your plastic trims, simply begin by making sure the surface is clean. Use Auto Finesse all-purpose cleaner Citrus Power first to be sure. Give the bottle a good shake to wake up ingredients. Then, making sure the surface is dry, apply Revive sparingly – a little goes a long way – to a foam applicator or tyre and trim applicator and work into the trim with moderate pressure. Make sure to achieve an even coverage. Give it 10 minutes to allow it to dry and gently buff off to reveal an even satin finish. It’s also water resistant, which means it’ll do its job for longer. Safe to use on all surfaces.
1 x Ultra soft wash mitt – RRP. £12.00.
The Auto Finesse Ultra Soft Mitt is a genuine lambs-wool wash mitt helping to aid a swirl-free wash process. The natural pelt pile will help lift any contaminates that are on the paint work away and allows for a swirl free wash. Our Ultra Soft Mitt also comes with a separate thumb section, which allows for greater control when washing lower halves and under wing mirrors, ensuring all areas are cleaned properly. *DO NOT put in washing machine, rinse thoroughly and leave to dry naturally*
1 x 500ml Tripple all-in-one cleaner – RRP. £12.95.
Auto Finesse Tripple helps to remove stubborn oxidation and contamination using deep cleansing solvents, while helping to refine paint’s surface to a high-gloss finish with fast-acting fine abrasives. Tripple is enriched with Brazilian Carnauba wax, helping it to lock in shine while it protects surfaces. Auto Finesse Tripple is also a great base for Tough Coat or any of our Carnauba hard waxes. If applying by hand, use a small-coin sized amount on an applicator and work into the paint with light pressure until the residue turns clear. Focus on a small area of 18 x 18-inch at a time. Leave the product to haze for several minutes before buffing off the residue using a microfibre towel. For Dual Action polisher application, use a light foam finishing or polishing pad together with 2-3 drops of Tripple. Working on the same surface area as by hand, start on the lowest setting, increasing to a moderate speed setting of 4000 OPMs until you see the residue starting to turn clear. At this stage, back the speed down to its lowest or second lowest setting and reduce pressure for one more pass. Leave the residue to haze for a few minutes and buff off using a microfibre towel. For application using a Rotary Polisher, use 2-3 small drops on the pad and spread onto the same 18 x 18-inch section using the lowest speed setting. Increase speed to 1000RPM using slow, overlapping passes. Once the residue starts to turn clear, back down to the lowest setting for one more pass. Leave the residue to haze for a few minutes and buff off using a microfibre towel.
1 x 500ml Ultra Glaze – RRP. £12.95.
The Auto Finesse Ultra glaze is a non-abrasive acrylic polymer enriched glaze designed to enhance paintwork whilst reducing the appearance of fine swirls. For hand or machine use, it makes metallic pop and dark colours deeper. For hand application, we recommend using either a microfibre or dual foam applicator pad. Apply a small coin sized drop of product to the applicator and work into the paint with light pressure. For best results, work on a small area at a time and in circular movements. Leave product to haze for several minutes before buffing off the residue using a microfibre towel. For use with a Dual Action Polisher, we recommend using a light foam finishing pad. Apply 2-3 small coin sized drops to the pad and spread onto a small area of the paint using the lowest setting on the machine. Afterwards, work the product in using slow, even, overlapping passes, light pressure and a moderate speed setting (4000 OPM) until you see the residue starting to turn clear. At this stage, back the speed down to its lowest, or second lowest setting and reduce pressure for one more pass. Leave the residue to haze for a few minutes and buff off using a microfibre towel. If you’re using a Rotary Polisher, we recommend using a light foam finishing or polishing pad. Apply 2-3 small coin sized drops to the pad and spread onto a small area of the paint using the lowest speed setting on the machine. Afterwards, increase the speed to a maximum of 1000RPM, working the product in using slow, even, overlapping passes. Once you see the residue starting to turn clear, back the speed down to its lowest setting for one more pass. Leave the residue to haze for a few minutes, and buff off using a microfibre towel.
1 x 100ml Mint Rims Wheel Wax – RRP. £19.95.
Auto Finesse Mint Rims Wheel Wax is a unique blend of high temperature synthetic waxes and solvent carriers to protect wheels with durability of 2-3 months. Mint Rims seals your wheels from hot, corrosive brake dust and oxidation, while protecting against everyday weather. Mint Rims wheel wax can be used on any wheel finish, including painted, powder-coated, clear coated, anodised, chromed, and bare polished alloys. Apply Mint Rims before a change of season. Simply half turn a foam applicator in the tin and apply directly to wheels. 1 x your choice of black bucket with print logo, detailers kit bag or crew bag or both Detailers kit bag and Black bucket. The light abrasives and solvents work quickly when teamed with either a foam applicator or microfiber cloth. You’ll see grime and oxidisation removed from the metal’s surface and onto the applicator instantly. Simply wipe clean. For Mercury, we recommend the use of an old microfiber that is past use on paint work.
1 x 1-Litre Verso engine degreaser – RRP. £8.95.
Auto Finesse Verso is an all-purpose cleaner which is perfect for cleaning any surface of a vehicle, including the engine bay! It’s extremely effective as a degreaser, as well as being gentle enough for general cleaner. It will leave a fresh, clean fragrance behind and a streak-free finish when dry. Verso can be used across carpet, fabric, rubber, engine, door jambs, wheel arches, tyres and convertible fabric hoods. Simply choose the recommended dilation ratio that suits your needs. Once you have chosen the correct dilution to suit your needs, mix Verso into a spray bottle. Next, spray Verso onto the surface that requires cleaning.

Come back and agitate Verso with one of the included detailing brushes.
1 x 500ml ObliTARate – RRP. £8.95.
The Auto Finesse ObliTARate tar and glue remover is a solvent-based formula that helps to dissolve and remove contamination before you even touch your car, minimising the possibility of marking the paintwork. ObliTARate tackles the likes of traffic cone rash, gaffer or duct tape residue and even undercoating overspray. Safe to use on all modern painted and powder-coated surface, as well as bare metal and brightwork. Do remember, though, ObliTARate is a very strong solvent product and may cause damage to fresh paint, SMART repairs, un-catalysed lacquers, and some delicate vintage finishes. If you attempt use on any of these surfaces, it would be wise to proceed with caution.
1 x 500ml Satin Tyre Crème – RRP. £8.95.
*Due stock levels, Satin can sometimes be replaced with Gloss 500ml* Auto Finesse Satin Tyre Crème has a gel-like consistency which allows you to layer the product up; one layer will give you a clean, natural satin-matte finish, while multiple layers will give you more of a depth of shine depending on how many layers you apply. Satin’s water-based formula is also packed with UV-Inhibitors, which help to condition the sidewalls of your tyres, and prevent them from cracking over time. Simply apply a few drops to our tyre applicator and rub onto the outer wall of the tyre. Layer up as desired.
