Wax

Hey I generally hear everyone talking about clay, prewax, and wax. What are your favorites of each?

Right now I just have Maguires clay and quick detailer, and I'd like to know what I need as far as prewax and wax to make the car really shine.

Meguiars for most anything that has to do with cleaning, polishing and detailing . . I could buy more expensive brands, but Meg's seems to be very good all around.

AFAIK spray type wax is very temporary. I like liquid wax.

I don't know if you can get this in america but i use ZYMOL car polish and i find it good to use as it brings the paint work to almost mirror finish
