recommended wax or polish

Any recommendations for my 2016 Race Red v6 fastback. When I'm ready to wax or polish, what should I use?

Clay bar first! I like Meguires gold class as far as less expensive readily available stuff. I also use paint sealer instead of the wax. It lasts longer than wax. I forget what brand I have currently.

Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Sealant is nice. Lasts about 6 months.

Collinite 915 is Isa nice durable wax as well

Meguiars Ultimate is right up there too. $20 for a can of paste wax and lasts 4 or 5 months. I've used Gold Class, Ultimate, and the Wolfgang 3.0. Shine wise, I feel like Ultimate and Wolfgang are about the same, although Wolfgang seems to last a little bit longer. Gold class never seemed to get as shiny as Ultimate.

I'll say the clay bar + Wolfgang did an amazing job on my old Race Red Focus, not sure this pic does it justice. I did this in November last year and it was still going strong in March when I waxed it again.

I NEVER use wax on any of my babies. Always a polish.
Zaino bros. polish. Z-2. Works killer and very durable. A little goes a long way.
Good luck!

This is what I have in the garage also. Paint sealant is just as easy to do as the wax job but does last 6mo or so as opposed to a couple of months for the wax. After applying paint sealant you not supposed to get the car wet for at least 24 hours.

If my car were not exposed to harsh weather and only saw sun light this would be the way to go.
Seen as mine always gets wet I think it needs to be protected.
My first car only got polished or clay barred. The paint alone shined so nice.

I bought Griot Garage Premium Carbauba Paste Wax during Black Friday Sale and I am very happy with the result. Easy to apply, easy to buff, great shine.
