I'm not sure if DSW can do that as I didn't try.

Willing to spend up to £40-50 max.

If you like AG products, then HD wax is a great performer and very tolerant of application. You can cover a whole car and it will all be ready to buff in about 20 mins.

The included sponge applicators, to be used damp as instructed, make it easy to apply and spread out.

Its not cheap, but it gives a great finish and is very durable.

You won't get easier than FK 2685, Britemax Vantage or FK1000p (sealant) for full car application then buffing.
I work with Fraser at shows, I've never had any issues with removing the 1-2-1 or signature following application to the full car, indeed that is one of the things I love about them

I'm surprise you've had any issues at all with removal as I'd always tell our customers that application to a full car and easy removal is one of the benefits of those waxes

Found both 121 and butterwax to be extremely fast curing. With Butterwax I even had to go as far as half the roof instead of the full roof or it would be difficult to remove. Certainly vastly different experiences of both but I do find the apply and remove instsntly as the product states the easiest method for me personally. Signature is a little more forgiving but even that I still finds performs best on the no cure time method.

Butter wax yes, I agree, is a panel by panel wax, I wouldn't go round the full car before buffing but I'm honestly surprised you've found any issues at all with 1-2-1 as it's one of the easiest waxes to work with out there (that being said there are plenty out there on the market these days which are extremely easy on off)
