I have some basic stuff (some I need to buy again cuz I'm running low).

I use:
-Turtlewax Ice carwash or sometimes Optimum No Rinse if I'm away from running water (meets/shows) and I have a bunch of microfiber towels and one of those Jelly blades for drying.
-Turtlewax Ice Spray wax
-P21S for the rims (1ers have terrible brake dust issues)
-Optimum Tire Shine
-Windex for the windows
-Armorall interior leather and vinyl wipes.

Basically most of the stuff you can buy at Walmart or Autozone.

I'd like to move up to some better quality stuff for chemicals and washing/drying tools (mitts, wheel washers, ect) possibly adding more in the waxing department maybe even an orbital eventually but yeah as for a budget, I don't mind spending a little bit where it counts but if I was replacing/adding in 1 large order I think definitely under $100 for supplies and maybe $150ish or less for an orbital.
