MILLENIUM SILVER Waxs?

I'm trying to find a wax that will help my MILLENIUM SILVER IS300 really shine.
I understand its more about cleaning before. however something that will help add to this.

Or some ideas of what todo.

#1 Collinite 476 (Durability, but harder to apply)
#2 Collinite 845 (Convenient and easier to apply)
#3 Opti-Seal
#4 Meguiar's 21

I would recommend decontaminating your paint and giving it the proper polish, then topping it off with one of those above waxes/sealants. I personally use 845 because it's easy to apply/buff off, but I love the others as well.

Garage
dodo juice light fantastic is a good soft wax. (shinier but will last ~10 washes)
dodo juice hard candy is a good hard wax (probably just as shiny but will last ~25 washes)

can't get these at auto zone.

and i second what rock said a proper polish is what will give the paint the depth.

I'm about to make the switch from wax to sealant just to try it out.

Klasse Twin is a great sealant it will not only add shine but protect it for a year.

I'll comment again and say that I'm very impressed with how well 845 comes out, especially after a nice polish.

I tested out using Chemical Guys Blacklight sealant and then topped it with the Collinite 845. Deepest gloss I've seen on this car yet! Should've done this sooner.
