What kind of wax/protectants are you using?

What brand of wax are people using on the clear coat? How about protectant on the black plastic trim?

I generally use Mequiars Gold Class Car Wash and their Ultimate Quick Wax spray wax after washing. The spray wax is so simple you just buff it in (no white residue) in one step and you can wax the vehicle in about a half hour. Looks great. So easy to use that you can use it once every couple of months after washing and build up a good layer of protection. That's what I do. I used that on my 02 Yukon that I traded for my Cherokee and that Yukon looked like new even though it was 12 years old. I've got the pictures to prove it.

I've had a lot of luck with Klasse Sealant Glaze. When done right, it will last six months.

Mequires white wax is great on the pure white. And the quick wax is great I. The TH hoid decal.

Meguiar's white or black wax depending on level of cleaning needed will put an excellent shine and protect your paint for a long time. Meguiars Ultimate Protectant will keep the black trim looking good.

I used Turtle wax "Ice" (spray) for the first wax. It goes on fast and just wipe and lightly buff and I'm done. Incredible shine. For 45 minutes including the door jams it was faster than the old past wax.
When it gets warmer I have a bottle of Meguiar's Ultimate Liquid Wax, which I really want to try out. As from the directions will take a little longer but should last longer.
I also used Blue Magic Headlight lens sealer on the plastic lenses for protection.
The forum has been a great help in understanding types of wax to use on a new finish.

That is what I use as well. On my 2000 Eclipse it would get it looking like black glass. Just beautiful
