Best Durable 6 Months Plus Wax?

As per title a friend wants a durable wax that’s capable of 6 months per application and sits in a budget of £40, can think of a few collinite, fusso etc but what else is out there i might have overlooked👍

Infinity Wax Supergloss+ durability of approx 7 months according to Infinity and it's £29.99 for a big tub.

It contains Si02 to help with the durability and gives a good shine

Collinite 845 for me.

Super easy on/off - great finish & excellent durability

Been using FK1000p this last year and its durability is genuinely 6months + its incredibly easy to apply and buff off.

The finish is artificial sealant not natural wax look, but it does look great.

Have used Autoglym HD wax in the past and that was genuinely 6months durability - you can get that for less than £40 niw the new version is out.

I still like Collinite 476s, certainly the longest lasting I currently have but I haven't tried the Fusso.

Fusso coat is great, at this time of the year when your needing a little help from chemical pre wash's you need something that can take punishment. its not that hard to remove like some say if you put it on thin enough.

I'd be looking at something like Wowo's Crystal Sealant. Less than £20 for 500ml and it's tested real world by myself.

8 months+ on the wheels at 300 miles a week. Probably 1+ year on paintwork and you can apply it to a wet car while drying it to top up protection.

I'm hoping to carry out a 'start of summer' weekend on the car once the weather plays ball; and am also interested in something that gives a good shine / lustre; but also (And probably more importantly for me) good durability.

Planning on the usual decontaminate, claybar and finally SRP stages and have bought some GTechnik C2v3 to try.

Am i best using this as my base-layer and then applying a wax over the top as secondary protection / final coat.....or ?
