I think the wax technology today is so advanced it's difficult to get a bad wax. Full synthetics or the 100% Brazilian Carnuba ones. Seems like each person takes to a certain wax for awhile and then we move on to the latest and greatest thing. I'm in the Meguiars Ultimate wax phase now for constant waxing, seems to be easiest at removal with out alot of extra efforts. Once a year I go overboard and Claybar the car and use Jax Wax products for the initial base wax coat. Jax Wax Swirl remover (Great on Black cars) and then the Jax Wax Cherry wax. Is that a huge white scuff down the side of your Monte? Hopefully that is fixed by now, like the accents in your wheels, looks pretty sharp, has to make you proud driving her around.

The site has a store locator on it, typically hard to find the Jax Wax products

I personally use Meguiars NXT but when I get a little more money I am going to get a product called Ammo skin. It is made by a professional detailer who has made several other products and has a regiment kit of different products for the paint as well as for the wheels. You can check it out at ammonyc.com. It is a little price but from what I see on his youtube channel the products look amazing. I personally just like the fact that he details as a profession and makes his own products.

Ditto on Meguiars......... I like the Meguiars Deep Crystal 3 steps, but looks like Meguiars may have phased it out (3 bottles - Step 1: Cleaner, Step 2: Polish, Step 3: Wax)

I use near about 15 brands wax including Meguiars wax.. but according to my experience the 3M is and best wax and after that the 2nd one is Mother car wax.. because i see these are the best waxes which stay long time.. Meguiars is also good, but if you use these two then I am sure you will forget the Meguiars wax.
