I use the Megiuar's clay bar kit with 2 clay bars, spray wax and a microfiber towel. About $15-$20 depending on where you buy it. I've done many vehicles with this and always been impressed.

All clay bars are basically the same.. Best value I've found is in Griot's Garage clay bar (if you already have clay lube), which is surprising because usually Griot's is overpriced.

I have used Meguiar's and Mother's. I prefer the Meguiar's of those two: it seems to have better pick-up performance.

The next bars planned are Detailed Image's fine grade ... and some sort of economical lube.
