I do miss a proper wax, but of late I have been using a liquid wax, some of which are carnauba and synthetic.

I basically want the best finish for white, but as you and other day, it’s all personal.

I am in the same boat as you, just purchased a Octavia vRS in white, and the struggle is real. Always had dark and dark grey cars, so I have lots of carnauba waxes (Victoria waxes, Glasur and similar), but I want that pearlescent to sparkle.

After lots of reading, I have purchased Sonax Polymer Netshield and Brilliant shine detailer - this is mostly because of the pictures I have seen from detailersdomain, ease of use and the hydrophobic properties which seems to be almost unreal and the price. I also like that the bottle is aerosol so it can be used several times without curing take place.

It have a coat with Soft 99 Fusso Coat now, but it dont seem to give the paint that little extra. Looking forward to polish with M205 and then Sonax PNS in the spring time.

Good luck with your choice

FK1000p is my choice for my silver car and my friend's pearl white car. A couple of coats is enough to see me through the majority of the winter

Another vote for FK1000p from me, certainly for winter if not all year round.

Tough Coat or 845 would work well mate. Hope you enjoy the wheels.

I've used fk1000p for the first time this year and so far I'm really impressed. Went on very easy and repels water well. Going by all the reviews it should last all winter as well.

Thanks for all the comments.

I have seen Chemical Guys have White Light, which going from the description sounds like the finish I want.

But, still keep going back to purchasing a proper wax, as it does feel good/sense of occasion

But worry I would loose something as its on a white car using a wax, Which I have been looking some Zymol Creame and Auto Finesse Fusion/Illusion
