1st detailing kit

hey guys, so finally getting my first new car...well the second time (ED e92) and well i should have planned farther in advance, but i should put together a detailing kit.

From what i've been gathering klass and zaino appear to be the top brands in the forums. And I've decided to try the zaino products first. However, i would have to wait until delivery of items before doing it. Or should i find local stuff so i could do it right away?

Here are the list of things i'm getting, please let me know if i'm missing something crucial
ZFX™ Flash Cure Accelerator Additive
Z-5™ PRO Show Car Polish for Swirl Marks and Fine Scratches
Z-6™ Ultra Clean Gloss Enhancer Spray
from zanioshop.com, couldn't find it anywhere else really except pakshak which says the only deliver to hawaii.
Maxi-Suds II ~SUPER SUDS SHAMPOO-Superior Surface Shampoo
CLAY BAR (LIGHT) -A HUGE ELASTIC EVERYDAY USE POLY CLAY BAR & LUBRICANT DETAIL SPRAY (VALUE PACK)
www.chemicalguys.com
couple of sheepskin washing mits (local)
couple of buckets (local)
1 micro fiber pack of towels from costco
Anyone have bad exprience here? are all microfiber towels not the same?
2x waffle weave towel - somewhere
303 Aerospace UV Protectant - somewhere
3M Scotchguard Auto Interior Fabric Protector - local
RainX Glass Treatment - local

future purchases
Porter Cable XXXX
PC pads and backing plates

need recommendation
window cleaners
leather cleaners

ALL MF TOWELS ARE NOT EQUAL!!!!!!!

ONLY use the costco ones on things other than paint!!!

use only quality MF towels like the ones from pakshak.

scotchguard is not necessary

window cleaner- Stoner's Invisible Glass

leather cleaner- Z9 and Z10

well glad you cleared that one up for me =P. The scotch guard was going to be for the floor mats, is there a better solution?
does Z9/Z10 contain any silicon products? A friend of mine was telling me that it works great, but can dry/crack your leather over time.
Any improvements on the items listed?
