After a complete wax with a good quality wax (Mothers) nothing'* really going to make it better. But they do have a Mother'* detailing spray you use to keep the finish shiny after waxing.

EDIT: Maybe I mis-read your post. But to make it better try the clay bar first, and then you should use the 3 phase system. The first stage cleans and shines the paint even more! And that'* BEFORE the wax.

I agree with bonnie94sse. I clay barred mine (before) I put the polish on. You will be amazed at the results.

Yup, Meguires (sp?) here too. Polish and then Wax. Gotta get myself the wash as well when spring comes 'round again.

Meguiars Gold Class wax, and some rubbing compound if need be. Clay bar is a must every 3-6 months!

After using my gold class wax i've been very pleased with it. My car sits in a dorm lot, a lot, and it gets dirty just sitting there from dust, dirt etc. Well when it rains it actually cleans it now, i DON'T get water spots AT ALL.... So rain is a good thing now!

EDIT: i'd love to walk outside this winter and see the snow all on the side of the car cause it wouldn't stick but everyone elses is covered..
