I must admit I don't find the paint on mine too soft. I've only ever given mine a good polish once and a quick going over with Menz 2500 to take out some very fine swirls - that's in over 7 years. ...

Not a wax but Prima's Hydro Max is an awesome product. It's a shame they're only really known for Amigo as the Hydro range, Nero and Infinity are all excellent products.

Mine's been fine on the Focus, although I must say I've never opened the flap and blasted it with water. I'd be more inclined to just use a detailing brush and wipe with a damp cloth.

For all round performance, looks and price, Dodo SNH. For looks alone, Vic's Concours. I've not used anywhere near as many waxes as many on here but I always seem to go back to these two.
