I have been using Maguires Hybrid ceramic spray wax and Collinide paste wax.
Almost bought some Mothers recently but didnt. I have plenty to go from the ones i listed before i need more.
If you look up best waxes you get different results from different sites and im sure they are all good and do the job.

By far my favorite that’s not on this list is 3D Poxy. That stuff is awesome. It can make any color pop. Choosing strictly from the list, Meguiar’s Ultimate liquid. I’ve used it for years, still do for my customers. Only slight down side is that it can be a pain to buff off if you let it sit for too long but a quick detail spray eliminates that.

It may have changed but I always thought of Meguiar's as the fast food of detailing supplies. Inexpensive and not of great quality or performance. I've tired many brands over the years but I've been completely loyal to everything Adam's produces since 2013. I love their Americana wax after a good claying with their bar and detail spray. To keep it lasting and looking great I use their H2O Guard and Gloss to a just washed wet car. Keeps the car looking/feeling clean and buttery smooth.

"Liquid Glass."

Not made anymore (Thank you Kalifornia) but I have several cans left.

Been using this for decades on several cars. Easy on, easy off, and leaves a beautiful shine.

Not sure what I'll go with when I finally run out, but that'll be in a few years!

Another vote...well for none of the above! I also use Collinite, No.845 liquid wax. Been using it for 17 years, and its kept my cars well protected. When it came to sell them, the new owners were impressed by the paint and wanted to know about the wax. Its durability and look is legendary. I have been researching the new stuff and SiO2 chemicals but I am old school and like to wax, and Collinite is easy to put on/off anyway. This time around I tried the Jescar/Menzerna sealant plus Collinite topper combo, so far so good. I have perused the aisles at the latest car care shops and the choices and support accessories are very overwhelming, I like to take care of my car but not get like 30 different chemicals.

I've been using Meguiar's G18211 Ultimate Paste Wax for several years and it's always done well. It seems that the boutique waxes cost more and do the very same thing.

I've used Meguiar's Ultimate Liquid Was for years and it does a great job. I use to be a big Mother's fan but once I tried the Meguiar's I never looked back. I also have and tried the new Meguiars Hybrid Ceramic wax but I like the Ultimate wax better. For correction, I love the Meguiars D300 correction compound. It's easy to use and does a great job.

Daily driver, 5 years, 82k miles and the paint still looks new (except for some small rock chips).

You’ll love it! I tested it out on my car for future clients for the mid-tier protection. My main complaint is the insane cure times. You have to wait full 24 hours to layer it to get their 1 year claim with an additional 24 hour cure. For a detailer it doesn’t really work especially since it’s not a true coating. For weekend warriors and enthusiasts it’s fine.

I recommend you check out their new Graphene line. No cure time and the protection level is up to par with Seal n Shine.

Here’s my car with TW Hybrid protection. It produces some great gloss and protection. It’s on month 4, still holding strong.

My Scat Pack is not a DD so spends a lot of time in the garage especially this time of year. 24 cure then recoat is no problem but I can see where it would be for a detailer. I have been doing clay bar and Meguiars wax every 6 months , if I have to do the Turtle Wax Hybrid Solutions Ceramic at the same frequency I'm ok with that. The car is 4.5 years old and is just starting to show a few swirl marks but you need to look hard to find them. Think I may buff it this time.

Thanks for the input.

I'm also excited to use the new Graphene Max wax from Turtle Was. I plan to buy a bottle to try after winter... Actually it was the Turtle Wax ICE product that introduced me to the polymer world.

COLLINITE wax is hard to find locally in my area so I order it online ALONG WITH a gallon of P&S BEAD MAKER for a very affordable super slick deep shine that lasts. :cool:
COLLINITE is an "old company" that only makes only wax/polish...... NO wheel cleaner, tire cleaner, etc.

BTW! I first heard of COLLINITE 45+ years ago when I used their products to polish high voltage power line insulators on 26.4 KV sub stations......... Polished all the ceramic insulators by hand.
