HELP NEEDED!! Complete car overhaul

just join the forum not to long ago, im planning to fix up my e93 2010 for the summer. every thing is base on what i have read from the forum the pass couple of days. but im kind of a noob so bear with me.

my car is Black Sapphire Metallic, im planning to get it looking as close to new as possible and coat it with clear bra.

1) im getting my clear bra from http://www.invisiblemask.com/
should i go for the Scotchgard or VentureShield? and whats the difference catolog 1 and 2?

2) i know there is guide on the forum on the forum that teaches you have to detail your car, but what is the most up to date one?

3) what is the best clay for my car you recommend?
i leaning toward this one
http://www.detailedimage.com/DI-Acce...P347/200-g-S1/

4) for the swirl mark removal should i use the Swirl x or ultimate compound or something else?

5) for the sealant im planning to go for zaino, but which one is the best for my situation?

6) should i wax the car before the clear bra or is it useless?

7) should i go use black magic or sonax wheel cleaner or is there something else better for cleaning and coating the wheel?

8) how to remove scratch on my heather seat and door? what is a good leather cleaner?

9) what kind of tools should i use?

10) there is a lot of paint chip and little scratches on the hood, i got the touch up paint and i heard Langka is good too. which one should i use and how should i use it?

You could also get it professionally detailed then put your clear bra on, kind of a start from scratch then you can learn from there on how to detail your car, instead of taking on a big task

How much something like that would cost? And I'm live in NYC, do you have anywhere you would recommend?
