My advice would be to visit one of the sponsors and buy any of the products they list, most of the products are reputable and decent enough.

I have filled in a couple blanks for you below

Car Bath? Traditional Shampoo (too many options, just get what you think is cool) Dodo juice born to be mild for washing maxi suds for foaming? + Optimum No Rinse, this will be your fav product
Clay? Just get the detailed image clay, use them for shampoo aswell I guess
Polish? Your car seems ok from that pic so you could pickup menz 106 alone or 106 + 85rd, black/white/blue pads - if you want a compound to add as well just in case get some d300 + microfiber pads
Wax? (by hand or pad) Zillion options based on budget, maybe get a sealant instead? BFWD/Powerlock easy to use. Swissvax is obviously a great choice, I wouldn't apply by hand unless you feel really comfortable with it.
Pre-wax? Deep pure black finish = prima amigo, metallic popping finish = CG ez-creme glaze
Quick Detailer? Optimum Instant Detailer, FK-425, CG Synthetic QD
Wheel cleaner? Sonax is great, or just get a gallon jug of any other reputable cleaner if you clean your wheels often. I never use/need sonax, I just use ONR.
Tire care? Tuf-Shine / Bold n Bright
Glass Cleaner? Invisible Glass
Leather cleaner? Leather Masters / Leatherique
Trim cleaner? Window trim outside? If so p21s metal soap will clean off oxidation
Microfiber? Whatever detailedimage sells, get at least 2 drying towels though.
Sponge/Microfiber for washing? everyone has their preference, I use sheepskin mitts since they seem the softest for a not so dirty car, for use on a dirty car I use a diff mitt I don't even know what it's called but it's not as soft and thin so I find it better to use on a dirtier car.
