You should actually use a sealer, combined with a good wax!

I use a special brew called Epic from Detailers Paradise down in Denver. I use it twice a year and it's well...epic- it'll cost you a dime, but it's worth it. I do two coats in the winter. In fact, getting ready to do the Audi for the winter. I've pretty much switched to all of their Prima line of products for everything from vinyl to windows to leather.

IMO, anything you find at a local auto parts store = garbage (their clay bar packs are fine though :P). A pro detail house will recommend the goods for you.

I used a little out of JR's bottle of Epic...it's very nice and really brings out the pearl in the paint + protects it.

I want to try that epic. I have the Meguiers NXT it still seems to be OK, I have been using the gold class for a long time.
