    Lots of choices there but for the money you can't beat Duragloss products. Zaino is pretty good but DG is just as good at a better value. Drop me a PM if you have any further questions, I've been on AG for over 5 years and detail cars on the side.

    Like others have stated Meguiar's makes some pretty good products for the value. I have consistently used many of there polishes, waxes and sealants with very good results. Here is a link that will help you understand what all there different types of waxes/sealants/cleaners do and it will probably help you understand other products on the market as well.

    While wax is a great finishing step (and I assume we're talking about carnauba wax), in getting the best finish for your paint, if you're not familiar with the concept, learn about paint correction. (google/youtube, etc..) a wax or even a polymer sealant can only encapsulate the gloss you've got underneath from claying, cutting and polishing. I bought my car used two years ago and did a massive paint correction, then polymer sealant then two coats of carnauba wax, all using the Menzerna line of products. Only hand wash, using the two bucket method, and the paint should stay swirl and scratch free. I've stripped the sealant and replaced once a year, then just hit her with a coat of the carnauba wax (Menzerna ColorLock) every few weeks just because I like doing it, and how a freshly waxed car feels....

    Well, I took the easy and cheap way out with TurtleWax Ice Liquid on clearance at Home Depot ($4)! Kit included the applicator and one microfiber towel(like I needed another one!!!). The C70 is closing in on three years of age and has a door ding or two, so I'm not going to obsess over the finish; BUT, the Caspian Blue sure is shiny !!! I have to say for the cost and 'effort', I am happy with the results!

    Our silver Elle got a coat of Nu Finish about 6 months ago, so I'll likely wait until fallish weather to renew that. The Grigio Chiaro hides a multitude of minor sins!

    I agree with what a2g said about paint correction. As far as product goes, I recently started using chemical guys products and am pleased with the result. I also use a combination of Maguiar's and Mother's products. If time is an issue, there are a few products, like Mother's ultimate wax system. You can wash, polish, seal, and wax your car in about 3 hours. I do recommend the 2-bucket system to reduce the risk of swirling, and purchasing a polisher to save lots of time and energy.

    Any good car wax that has Carnuba in it. Look up straight Carnuba wax used by custom and high end autos, it's $$$ but the shine is great and protects against UV really well. FWIW the car wash w/Carnuba in it will save the paint on a vechicle that has to sit out in the sun everyday. (Washed every couple months with it). Mothers brand is my favorite. Learned this from an RV dealer. It would take like two days to hand wax a motorhome. I washed ours about every two/ three months with a RV wash/wax product sold at RV stores that had Carnuba in it. We sold the MH many yrs later and no paint or decal fade. Hope this helps.
