Looks fantastic but very difficult to make an accurate assessment from those shots as one is shot in the shade on a sunny day while the other on a totally overcast day. Just look at the colour difference in the green of the grass, the shade one looks a lot more blue as you'd expect.

Carnauba always looks warmer/deeper compared to synthetics and hybrids.

From Soft99 we have Authentic Premium, and there are countless other excellent carnauba waxes on the market to consider too.

Within the range of all-carnauba waxes themselves, there is no difference in final appearance.
Authentic Premium uses Virgin Crystal White Carnauba, and the raw material does indeed look different to the other No.1 Carnauba we use. You can't get "better" carnauba than this, but there is basically no difference in appearance once on the paint. It mostly comes down to preferences of spreading/removal behaviour, smell, and presentation.

There are also various options for liquids/sprays, and in this case again for warmth I would recommend a carnauba-based formulation. Soft99's Luxury Gloss is one example, and there are many more out there, with somewhat more variation in applicability and other properties (due to other ingredients) than the all-carnauba hard paste waxes.

The best I ever saw on Electric Orange paint was Vic's Red (Concourse) over Dodo Lime Prime Lite. Two relatively old products but still awesome.

its mostly about the prep work.. stick some blackfire gloss enhancing polish on (gep) which now called paint cleaner http://www.polishedbliss.co.uk/acata...lish-cat9.html
that will make it very deep and then a nice wax on top to seal it in. could have a chat with dan from odk and see which wax he recommends as he sells sample pots or stevie from bmd,
if you want 6 months durability then bmd morpheus leaves a nice deep finish
