I've been back and forth between waxes, but I generally found two compaines that make good stuff:

ZAINO and GRIOTS GRAGE. Groits makes a really nice detailing kit that you can place in your garage in one convienent bag. :) The Zanio wax isn't really a wax, but a polymer clear sheet. It's a really nice, glass type of shine!

twice a year I like to use dish soap to remove the wax and then re do the wax - I have always used a turtle wax paste wax - if I am doing a quick I just use a lotion type wax and if I want a quick shine I use a spray on

twice a year I try to wax my car with Meguiar's paste wax, once a year I'll clay bar using Meguiar's Smooth Surface kit.

I'll have to check out this Zaino and Griots Grace stuff though. my wax supply is just starting to get low lol

Two times a year, I use NuFinish product on entire vehicle.    Old school "wax on / wax off" manual arm motions.   On its front hood, 's lower lip, front grill and lower front bumper area, I apply NuFinish product every month and leave it on.   Seriously.  Being a white color/colour vehicle, I leave the NuFinish film on it frontal area.   Makes bug removal every easy...   Especially in my dark light / along the water bush areas.   This works for me...

I never hand wash or wax my vehicle, it leaves very fine scratches in the clear-coat. I have always used a spray wash, my vehicles stay nice and shiny, and they don't have the tell tale swirl marks. Similarly when I buy the vehicle, I tell the salesman NO BUFFER. (Or no sale).

We pay for the very best  paint with a Clear Coat that is UV filtering, and it retains it's shine forever, so  why would I want to spend my time waxing it. All my vehicles, over the last 20 years, have sat outdoors, and with the exception of keeping them clean with a spray wash, that's all I do. They still have retained that new car shine for many years.
