I think the stuff that I use is more akin to paint sealant than a wax. I'm lazy. I just want to protect the paint so it won't fall off like my dad's old Honda that wasn't waxed in like 10 years. I used to use Liquid Glass, but I'm having trouble finding it now- and once it's old it doesn't work very well. I found some similar stuff called TR3. There are some things I like better about it. On the unfinished black plastic, Liquid Glass used to stain it white forever. Nothing got it off but time. This stuff seems to rub off- with a good bit of rubbing- and leave a shine. If it wasn't so late in the season, I could tell you more about it.

I'm anti-carnauba wax. 2x it has attracted more bugs to my car than I want to have. Once it ruined a perfectly good 87 Cutlass Supreme I spent months repairing the finish on with carnauba- yeah the finish looked great, it was the ants that invaded it that ruined it. That was back before camera phones or I could more accurately show you what an ant nest under auto carpet looks like. I prefer waxes that bugs don't like to sniff.
