[QUOTE=NYGTO;3636438]I like Collinite 845 for durability.[/QUOTE

I looked for the insulator wax after reading about it on Autogeek... we took delivery of our 2011 SE the day after Thanksgiving... the detail guy at the dealership did a good job, so the paint needed no correction, just protection with winter weather coming. Could not find it without paying shipping from a website... opted for the Meguiars Mirror Glaze #20 sealant instead (the local NAPA ordered it in without shipping). Now I have found the Autoglym HD on clearance at a local WM Supercenter... will give it a try.

Have you found any local supply store or parts store that will order it in without shipping?

The auto/glym is decent wax. If you want to find some good deals checkout www.autopia.org in the classified section, people are always selling good waxes for decent prices. Unfortunately most decent products are not on store shelves.

Just as a heads up, there's a rebate in this month's Motor Trend for a free bottle of this. I'm going to pick it up and at least try it.

I have some of the Eagle gel wax, I like the Turtle wax Ice better than the Eagle One Carnauba Gel.
