Wax recomendation

Ok, so I have searched and searched for wax recommendations and haven't found any. So, what is everyone using to keep their baby looking good and protected?

How about a wax that is easy to apply for the non-professional?

Chemical Guys Butter wax. This is some really good stuff for me. Use it on car, truck, & bike. Easy on & off. Can be found at Advance Auto parts. Cost about $18.00 a bottle

i've always used malm's carnauba wax, but if you read the thread, wax has static properties that draw dirt and dust.
it goes on easy and dries clear so you have no white residual wax to futz with.
it has last longer than any other "easy" wax i've found.

the sealants and new nano polishes have really changed the game. it's worth a read...
