Tried out some new products - synthetic clay and Opti Seal. I think both have their place, but the synthetic clay likely won't do a good enough job on a neglected paint finish and you'll want to use real clay in those cases. Jury's still out on the Opti Seal. It's not super slick like I hoped it would be, but it does bead/sheet water very well. For the cost and 15 minutes it takes to apply, if if lasts 6 months it's worth it I think. I'd like to find a similar wipe on product that requires little to no buffing that dries to a harder, slicker finish.
A lot of folks ask how I keep the paint swirl and scratch free and a lot of it boils down to how you wash the vehicle. NEVER run it through one of those auto wash machines that slap the car with brushes or strips. Unless your ceramic coated, I'd not recommend touchless unless it's just a dire emergency as the soaps used can be so harsh they'll actually remove any standard wax you may have applied. Once ceramic coated, it's no big deal though. Two bucket wash method is key. Foam gun makes it fast and easy. Just got one and love it. I'd rather be out driving than cleaning, so I take advantage of all shortcuts.
