Do a search, someone on here recommended a good line just a short while back. Can't remember the name.

Wax is passé. Use the polymer wipe on walk away stuff on clear coat finishes. Gone are the days of removing “dead” paint (lacquer/enamel...)

Revenge uses Good Stuff. I'm using Nu Finish and have used it for years. Half the price and easy to apply/wipe off.

I use this. GREAT STUFF! Hand waxed my F-250 a couple weekends ago and oh my, the smooth difference in the paint and shine is incredible.

What y'all are missing here by NOT waxing occasionally is that it makes anything come off -- bug splats, fuel spill, road grit/asphalt... whatever, much easier with a good coat of wax on your paint. Serious.

That’s the stuff! Finish is smooth, slick, not much sticks to the paint either.

Try it, you’ll never “ wax” again.

CR’s tests show year after year that NuFinish is the best and I agree. If you wash your car with soap though it is all a waste of time as the majority of soaps take wax/polymer off.

My FIL was just showing me some products he gets for his workers to polish his cars.

These are ridiculous cars. Lots of them.

He was excited that there is now a US distributor to get it and he wont have to order from the UK anymore?

They have lots of products and he uses multiple different from them.

Auto Finesse https://www.autofinesse.co.uk

He thinks I should try it on my boat. He raves about it. I will admit his cars are purty.

It depends upon what is most important to you - best shine, longest lasting or easiest to apply - otherwise you can compromise.
On my limited use Corvette's, I prefer two coats of Meguiars #26 Carnuba liquid after a good claying and the applying #7 glaze - it is a lot of work and the shine is incredible; it also lasts a long time so long as you keep the vehicle garaged and out of the weather. It is not a great choice for cars that live outside.
On our daily drivers it is either Meguiars M20 or M21 polymer sealant - easy to apply and lasts at least 6-8 months out in the weather 24/7/365. Like anything else, you need to start with a good wash, clay cleaning and then the topcoat.
