waxing question...

this may be a repost, but what waxes do you guys use?

i use all the steps from meguiers...

and since i have a carbon blue paint, there is always swirl marks that appears... and its a hestle trying to make the car shinnier or to look cleaner...

my question is:
besides substances that needs to be waxed off or rubbed on, is there any anyting else that i can use to just leave on the car to make it look more shinnier and cleaner?

is there any products for dark color paints, after being washed or waxed, that doesnt have to waxed or rubbed off to give the car a more sleeker or shinnier look?

make sence?

Meguire's Techwax. Easy to put on; seems very nice.

I use mother 3 part system. It is the best in my opinion. I have tried many but it seems ot do the best job. Step 1 is a Claybar and show cleaner which takes out everyhting fomr your paint, liek if you ahve little rust dots or if ur paint jsut feels kidna ruff you do that and its perfect. Then yu do a cleaner wax to get off anyhting else missed. Then the seel and glaze whioch makes it look liek wet glass smile I swear by it.

I use Meguiars 3 step.

I was told and read not to do circles on my car when polishing or waxing. Do straight lines. Reason I was told this is circles cause swirls. No matter where I stand at any angle the sun will show swirls and scratches when I do cirles to polish or wax. When I do straight lines if I do create a imperfection it will be in a straight line and I will only see it at one angle when looking at the car. And that angle is small.

Meguiers Tech Wax is kinda wack. I use it and am not very satifised. Still had swirls marks. Does offer a nice shine.
