Whatever you like. Read a couple of the threads in this section. Meguiars Gold seems to be used by most of us, but other people have thier favorites. I've heard lot'* of good things about the new Turtle Wax Platinum. Supposedly as good as or better than Meguiars, and about half the price.

are you looking for a 1 step cleaner wax, or interested in a multi step system.

the multi step system will give you better results, whether its a clay bar, then polish, then wax, or compound/cleaner, polish, wax,............. you get the idea

if ease and of application and time are an issue, just go for something like Mother'* Carnauba cleaner wax.........one step, pretty good durability for a consumer product.


if you wanna get crazy theres tons of higher classes waxes, polishes, glazes, and sealants!..........zaino, klasse, blackfire, poorboys..........the list goes on!

I use it for both reasons. Also the fact that it is kinda a family tradition.

as for the clay bar....read up here
http://www.autopia-carcare.com/inf-clay.html

if your car has never been clayed.......i'd recommend it...you'll be amazed at how many contaminants are taken off your paint....plus you get a really smooth surface.

also check out that site in general.....tons of great information...
