Default Detailed my brand new 2014 WRX

So after driving the car around town and now racking on only 104 miles on the tac(getting to 1,000 is going to take a while). Ive had the car a week and 3 days so I decided on a free day to wash/detail it. It only took me around 2 hours just for the outside. Here is what I did:
1) Used brake dust cleaner then wash
2) Applied car shampoo
3) Rinse
4) Shampoo again
5) Light dry
6) Move to shade
7) Clay bar
8) Buff off
9) Meguiars cleaner wax
10) Buff off
11) Rain guard on windows
12) Tire shine
13) Watermelon scent cabin

Now usually I would polish the car after claying, then wax and then seal it, but since I plan to wash the car in a weeks time for a mini car show I did not want to polish and seal. The Meguairs cleaner wax is nice since it polishes, waxes and seals. Its not the best, but for the price and since you can use it whenever it works well.
Most of the products are either from chemical guys or Meguiars. I think chemical guys have some good products and I decided to try them out. They have scented products and most smell great. Mr. Pink shampoo smells like Guava and some sweet candy. Clay Lube smells like cotton candy. Quick detailer smells like some sweet fruit.
Overall just thought I would share this, I sometimes detail other friends cars and it fun to see the difference in the looks and how it feels.
Here are some photos.
