A lot of dealers are usiing 303 touchless sealant. I have a bottle, the stuff is great for between-wax washes, if you want the water beading off your car.

I use Collinite aeronautical wax #88? Hard to put on but lasts. I use it on the boat too.

After a thread on here a couple years ago I started using Carguys Hybrid Wax Sealant (like $20 on amazon). It's a spray on wax that is essentially no more effort than windexing your whole car.

My boat dealer actually asked me "who ceramic coated your car" when he showed up one day, and then comically refused to believe that it was a spray wax.

It was easy enough that I figured I wouldn't mind putting it on every other month or so, but I probably only ended up doing it a couple times a year. Good stuff. I'm guessing the dealers use something similar, as pointed out above, no way they're ceramic coating the car as even the materials for that are a couple hundred bucks, and if they can avoid putting a buffer on it and the associated labor, I'm sure they would.
