http://www.meguiars.com/en/automotiv...im0IEX6XMHd.97 Good stuff imho.
Besides Meguiar's we also used products from a company called Auto Magic. Auto Magic caters to detailing professionals (auto and boat dealerships, detail shops etc.) and usually isn't found at the retail level though Amazon does carry some of their products. Great products imho but be aware they usually are not available in smaller sizes, 1 gallon being the smallest size in many of their products primarily because they cater to places that use lots of detailing products and are more economical to use.
As for NuFinish, count me in CoachRick's camp- "Nu Finish is VERY 1970s !!! But I like it!" I don't think you quite get the "show car shine" that some other products have but I've never used anything that has held up as well- "once a year" is no BS. Living in New England and now the upper Midwest, they are many months out of the year when you can't detail your vehicle thanks to below freezing temps, snow and sleet and longevity of a wax/ polish becomes much more important. My previous vehicle was lucky to get one coat of NuFinish some years and it still looked amazingly good when I traded it after 12 years of ownership.

I could go on and on about this topic since I have dabbled in everything over the last 30 years but honestly, clean the car well and use a quality product for the shine. (There are MANY quality products out there)
Waxes, polishes, glazes and their ilk are like oil - everyone has something they think is the bees knees and they will shout about it ad nauseum. I used to have a great system for cleaning my cars BC (before child), now I am just grateful if I can wash the thing on occasion and keep brake dust off the wheels.
FWIW - I used some German stuff, Klasse, and it has held up fairly well. I would say it is good DD stuff but if I was looking to impress it would be much more involved.

There is a vendor here on the forum (Stay Fresh) that makes some nice products as well...just saying. I've tried a few things and they seemed really nice. I also had a guy obsessed with cleaning his ride and he was favorable so that to me spoke volumes.
Meguiars has also been a nice product line with a variety of offerings.
Mostly I just thought the NuFinish was a funny thing and reminds me of the commercials as well and figured I'd toss in the above statements.
zaino wax or bust
it's on the pricey side tho
