in order to answer that question.. it really depends on the color... you really cant JUST wax a car... there are steps needed to be completed before protecting the paint with a wax...

zymol is good.... I suggest you clay the car first, use a paint cleaner then a swirl remover and then apply the wax.. automagic is a good brand... there are many good names out there... some work better then others on certain colors..etc.. its really hit n miss

Thanks, Zymol recommends the paint cleaner first. It's snowing like crazy in Colorado right now, so I'll wait for a nice weekend.

For Dark colours I would recommend Autoglym Ultra Deep Shine. For after every wash I also use Turtle Wax "Wax it wet". With this material after you've washed the car with Autoglym Body Shampoo, and rinsed the car with clean water, you spray on the wax and then leather the car off and wax it at the same time. One tip use a separate leather for doing the glass.

So true!
The kind of prep and wax/sealant I use depends on the make of the car as well as the condition of the paint. For example, when I'm doing a German make in reasonably good condition I use Pinnacle XMT or P21S waxes toped off with Mothers Reflections Top Coat. Or if I'm doing the '69 Camaro I'll use Surf City's Nano Shine Glaze & Seal.Should any paintwork require a bit of prep work my products of choice are the P21S Paintwork Cleansing Lotionor a good clay bar. A lot of it is just personal preference too. Those are just products I've found over several years of experimenting that give me the results I like best.
