any, wax makes minimal difference to looks imo. machine polishing gives the 'best' results - its (nearly) all in the prep.. no point using a £100 wax, for example, on swirly paint

How about this?

When Evolution is released it is most definitely worth looking in to...

What Kev said. Ensure your paint is perfect (or as close to perfect as you want to get it) before applying the wax or sealant.

IMO think more along the lines of wax is a protectant.

Victoria Wax Concours or Raceglaze 55... really does add what you're looking for.

Waxes do help but it always comes down to a brand whore fight
