Best results I've ever had is with a synthetic polymer sealant (I used Meguiar's wax) followed by an application of a caranuba wax the following day.

Check out the Meguiar's forums, they recommended synthetic first, then caranuba. Gives a nice shine and you get the best of both worlds.

Don't forget to use a polishing compound or glaze before sealing/waxing if you have swirls, etc.

They built out a couple of their own. They had to replace the front facia, and the right headlight. The body shop did an awesome job color matching the facia, then detailed out the whole car, inside and out, clay barred and then hand applied Zymol cleaner wax. It looked like a different, newer car and the shine lasted for six months. I re-waxed with Zymol myself then, and it again lasted for half a year of road salt and sand, and car washes in the mid-atlantic area. That was 7 years ago, and I have never used anything else since, never will. It is really pricey, but it lasts eons longer than the big market junk.

Ask the people at the Pebble Beach Concourse D'elegance what they use. Zymol is on the top of their list.

In fifty years of waxing cars, I have used everything. The big companies like meguires can't touch Zymol with a long stick.

Extra coats of wax are a waste of time, money and sweat. Each subsequent coat dissolves the prior coat and you end up with exactly the same thickness of hard wax after buffing it out.

I am a Meguiars man since the eighties. I had a black 1979 Pontiac grand lemans that I called the black ghost. Today I still use Meguiars detail wax. I have not put a paste wax on yet but will probably do it soon and when I do it will be Meguiars gold.

Turtle Wax Ice.....not that it gives the best shine (good but not best) but because you put it on black plastic and it does not stain it. My 2012 has a lot of black plastic.....

2012 V6 traded in for a 2017 VW GTI.

I have been using Meguiars for some time now, it's a nice good all around wax. Although, I'm looking for something a bit different. Actually I'm glad you started this thread, I'm picking up some good ideas here I like what I see from Zymol though.

I usually use:
Meguiars (During washes)
Turtle Ice Wax (In between major washes)
Nufinish (Twice a year)

Pete's from Chemical Guys is good. I have used several types and liquid is easier than paste of course but paste looks better when buffed correctly. Any of the Dodo Juice stuff is good. Meguiars is good. Pinnacle Black Label is by far the best I have used so far, but at $195 for 8 ounces it is very pricey. Currently using Chemical Guys Jet Seal and the Pete's once the Jet Seal has cured for a day. Got great results on my black '14 V6, but she is gone on to someone new now and I haven't done my '16 GT yet. Can't wait to hit that Deep Impact with the Black Label! That stuff is great.

I keep going back to blackfire products. I've tried DoDo juice, sonax PNS, and a few others. Nothing beats the ease of use and relative good finish of BF. If I'm going to polish, then there is no need to strip off the old wax. After I either strip or polish off the old sealant and wax I start with BF wet diamond. Let cure for 24 hours then BF crystal seal. BFCS is so easy it's stupid.

Waterless washes are performed by ultimate waterless wash + and "wet" washes are follow by a light mist of UWW+ as a lube and drying aid.
