I use Adam Patriot wax and follow up with a little brilliant glaze and I was good all summer, the shine is fantastic.

To get the best results you will need to polish the paint first, getting all of the swirls and issues out of your paint. You can go with any high quality wax of your choice after this step.

If you are asking for a recommendation, then the wax(es) that I think give good results and are cost efficient are P21S and Victoria Wax as a high end wax.

Nice BRZN Is your Car Ceramic Coated as well? How is longevity? Love the "ordinary" Americana however the only Downside to using the Carnauba based wax is its longevity in our FL Climate.

Yup, Ceramic Coated spring of 2017 with Adam's original 7H Paint Coating, and the Ceramic Paste Wax applied this past fall. I plan to polish the car out this coming spring and re-coat it with his new 9H Paint Coating. The coating showed obvious signs of failing, but the Ceramic Wax is still holding strong!

Still Oldschool here and getting too old for this (nah lol) but more and more it looks like Ceramic is the way to go.

Once you've completed the prep work;
Strip Wash
Decontaminate
Clay
Polish
The application of the Ceramic Coating is just about as easy as applying and buffing off a wax or sealant by hand. I got a year and a half of protection and unbelievable gloss with the 7H Coating, and this car sits outside 24/7/365 with nothing more than a Ceramic Boost wipe down every couple/few washes. The Ceramic Boost is about like using a Detail Spray. Every car I own, including my company car, is Ceramic Coated, and I plan to do this to every car I own from here on out. (Unless something better and easier comes along). I sorta' am getting too old for this, I'll hit 60 years old this coming fall.
