At the end of the day, everyone has their favorite wax. Everyone needs to try different ones out and find their favorite.

There are no bad waxes.

Only bad waxers.

From experience, it depends on the color of your car.

BUT - the real nice finish of the paint all happens BEFORE you apply the LSP (last step product such as sealant or wax). 90% of the look is because of prior polishing (& compounding if necessary). The wax is simply adds a bit of gloss/wet look, on top of what the paint has already accomplished; this is because wax is there to protect.

Personally, Dodo makes a great line of products, as does Pinnacle, WG, Swissvax as well. But you don't need ridiculously expensive wax to get a great look - just a good, proper technique
