You can try Mother's too. They're pretty good. Slightly cheaper than Meguir's, been using them and no problems fer me.

civicdude will become famous soon enough
3m hand glaze is awesome stuff or you can use mothers sealer glaze, or you can use meguires glaze.

As for wax I would agree that meguires is over rated. I would go with kit, or gliptone creme wax. Stay away from cleaner waxes or anything with abrasives in it.

gold class does make dark colors deeper, but thats only til the first drops of water hit it

Zaino forms a nice layer of protection, but doesn't have oils so it doesn't darken and richen a dark color...

Mothers is in-between the 2...

That's my observation when I had a black S2000... I tried each of them to compare them...
