I'm kindof a car nut. If my car don't shine, I'm not happy. My Dad used to swear by Johnson's paste wax, but what a bear to apply. Worst of all it didn't last thru a Winter.
For years and years I used to use Rally. It would get me mostly thru a Winter and 3 coats a year was about what it to keep the car beading.
About 7 or 8 years ago I switched to McGuires Cleaner wax and found it to be awesome. Spring and Fall and all was good. It still required an hour or so and you had to buff it off.
Two years ago I found the Quik Wax. Its in a spray bottle and requires no buffing. Just spray it on and wipe it off. It literally takes me 15 minutes (after washing and drying the car) and it lasts a full year. What's awesome about it is that after you finish the surface feels so smooth and it seems to shed the dirt.
In my case, when I say "Winter" I mean Buffalo, NY with salt on the roads 6 months of the year.
As an aside, the companion product is an interior vinyl protector and what it does to vinly roofs, the black moldings on the lower panels on the car, as well as interior vinyl seats is just awesome.
