exterior detailing question

What do you guys use for getting that major clean shine on front and rear bumpers and trim? I've been using Meguiar's spray for plastic/rubber/vinyl applied with clean paper towels and I'm just not satisified.

Looking at black my Celi in the sun today, it looks all streaky and oily from up close.

What's the best wax to use, I just used the new Meguiar's NXT wax on my Celica and it doesn't seem to be as good as the Gold on my Eclipse.

I use armor all wash, then Mother's clay bar, then mothers wax stripper (only like 3 times a year), then Mother's sealer / glazer (makes the paint look wet...I swear it truly amazing...and I finish with Mother's reflections carnuba wax...and it works sooooooo well...I also use a california water blade for the drying part when I'm washing, and an electric orbital buffer when I'm waxing (apply by hand and then buff off)...I'm a little anal about my paint...but cleaning my car this well makes me feel really relaxed and good
