By the way Sentra Styling, your car looks great. I would love to do some mods later on down the road, maybe go to a larger wheel and a wider tire first. Any suggestions for a newbie?

ooooh! Car care. One of my favorite topics. hehe. I have actually spend as much on car care products for my car as Mods.

Here is a list of my favorite stuff.

Car Wash:
Sonax Gloss Shampoo (hard to find) or P21S car wash

Wax:
One Grand Blitz Wax (lasts a long time. It's real carnuba wax...it attracts bee's. hehe)

Glaze:
3M Imperial Hand Glaze (It's THE stuff to use.)

Degreaser:
P21S Total Auto Wash (this stuff is GREAT! Ph balanced and everything.)

Leather conditioners:
Lexol leather stuff is supposed to be good, but I don't have a leather interior, so I don't know!

Interior Protectant:
Lexol Vinylex (has essential oils and a UV protectant to keep vinyl and plastic looking new. Smells bad.)

Stuff to Avoid!
Simple Green. (This stuff is VERY acidic and harmful to painted surfaces.)

Dish washing soap. (Designed to cut through grease......and car wax...and everything else)

Wheel Cleaners. Armor All has a lawsuit filed against them about their wheel cleaner (I forget the name.) It damages just about everything it touches.

Non 100% cotton towels. Polyester fibers will scratch your car quickly. Do the burn test to see if your towels are 100% cotton. Black smoke = polyester.

Where did you get the leather done? That looks wicked... I am assuming it isn't a nissan upgrade but some company that does leather interiors for cars?

I know people have used Mother's products with pretty good results. There's a couple of other products that work, but I can't recall their names.

Avoid Armor All at all costs for the interior as well as the wheels. There is some kind of solvent in them that takes residues off allright. It causes the surfaces treated to have a dried-out appearance, which means you have to apply this stuff all the time. Plus the surface is getting damaged. I used to work in a shop that sold outdoor gear, and invariably someone would use Armor All on their fancy fiberglass/kevlar boat and wreck the finish on a $1200 plus canoe. Not cool.

Waiting for PR CAI, got the Stromung, got the Unorthodox, got a big fat empty "0" in my bank...:)

Personally, I use Zaino products. You can visit their website at www.zainobros.com . I applied their polish to my Sentra in October, and water still beeds like day 1.

And yes, avoid Armor All. It pulls out the natural lubicrants in vinyl and rubber, thereby causing them to dry out and rot/crack.

Thanks for all the advice guys, I will stay away from the armor-all.
Tried "Miguires" tire gel and it works great. Think I'll try "TANNERY" product for the leather interior.
To answer a previously posted question, the interior was done by some company in Toronto CANADA that my dealership goes through. If I ever find the name of the company I will post it, I would like to recommend them, they didi a great job.

I highly recommend both of these products. The Lexol leather stuff works great. :)

How about TURTLE WAX products for the interior stuff, like the dash and trim. And NO-TOUCH for the cleaning. Anyone had good (or bad ) expierience with these products. Also TANNERY products for the leather seats?

Well, IIRC, Turtle Wax was in the middle of a class-action lawsuit for misrepresentation of their products. I'd probably avoid them.
