I'm looking at Ceramic coating when my car comes in...Then probably Jetsealing over that, then probably Chemical Guys 50/50 wax to top it all off.

I think the trick here is to make sure you look after the paint when cleaning , ie don't use a sponge and pat dry with a microfibres cloth along amongst othing things. If the paintwork is cleaned properly and not damaged the the exterior is the icing on the cake so to speak.

I don't let anyone clean the car other than myself as well.

I see so many people washing their cars the wrong way that no wax is going to correct.

White Cars can be unrewarding when waxing, I used Auto Glym UHD wax and it’s gives a good finish and easy to work with.
