Adam's products and Chemical Guys are the really high end car show paint job look, also expensive. Meguirs (Spelling is wrong) for a great wash and detail which is affordable. I personally think turtle wax sucks. I would wait 2-3 weeks before detailing your car again, because that wax will stay. Also clay bar will really bring out the shine in your car. Youtube a proper car wash.

Zaino all the way for me. Although it is actually a polish and not a wax.

Meguires glaze followed by Meguires carnuba wax. For the money, it's the bomb. If your all paint-snobby (Seer!) The Adams might be your thing. I personally don't walk around trying to find a hint of swirl to panic over. That said, i do use a Porter Cable.

Zym÷l...

Zym÷l does not use harsh petrochemical or petroleum-based solvents. Not cheap, however, the depth and detail is remarkable.

I use either Griots or Adams paint sealant on both of my Camaros both work equally well but I find myself using more of the Adams per application. I've used the Meguires tech wax on my Vette (had a bunch of free samples) and it works well too.
