I use mothers 4 step process....

Clay bar to remove unseen contaminants....
Cleaner and anti oxidizer....
Setting and glaze....
Carnuba wax....

And then after I wash the car I use Mother's show polish....

It's alot of work, but it looks great and the car is so easy to wash with that great coat of wax....

Dude check out http://www.mothers.com, it's really great stuff. Waxing takes a long time if you want to do the long process but it's deffinetly worth it. The glaze really does help....

I mean it makes sense, you can't buy one bottle of wax that does like 3 things right... You gotta buy three bottles of wax that will each do like one thing....

I remember a day i helped my grandmother wax her oldsmobile.

That was the worst day of our lives.

The stuff seem to "stick" to the car real nice..

I think you are talking about Turtle Wax Platinum Series
Ultra Gloss Paste Wax. The description says:

"Extraordinary formula of pure Brazilian Carnauba Wax combined with Bavarian Montan wax to provide maximum shine, perfect clarify and deep gloss to a car's finish. Formulated with fluoropolymer resins to fill in minor scratches and swirl marks. Layering several coats of Platinum Series Wax will further enhance the shine and clarity of the car's finish."
An experienced detailer tried it out and describes it in this thread. Said it seems alright, for the money. Check the thread:
