    Wolfgang concours deep gloss paint sealant is the best ive ever used when used in conjunction with their swirl remover and polish.

    Its a little expensive but damn my truck looked good after i was done. Id use a mechanical polisher to apply them though.

    My Indigo Blue '07 is too long for my garage so it's outside 24/7. I used Klasse paint sealant and topped it off with Collinite Insulator Wax #845. Both of these products are noted for their longevity. Personally, I think it looks pretty damned good. Tried Poor Boy's Natty Blue Wax and it looked terrific but after a month of weekly washings it was pretty much gone. We'll have to see how the Collinite holds up. Both the Klasse and Collinite are said to last 6 to 8 months, but I've only had them on for about a month. Water beading is like it was the day they were applied. The Natty's had an edge in clarity, but not by much.

    Your question is similar to what is the best oil, you'll ask 10 people and you'll get 10 different answers. Try different brands and see what works best for you would be my advice.

    Best is subjective. Its going to come down to what you like best.

    W/ that said; I've found my favorite to be Chemical Guys 5050.

    Best protection... tough call. Most carnaubas are only going to last 5 weeks +/-. Sealants, ~10-14 weeks.

    Easiest to apply. Optimum Opti-Seal. Apply and allow to evaporate. Very long lasting protection too. Quality stuff.

    Easiest to remove. P21s. Either the carnauba look or 100%.
    They definitely qualify for easy to apply too.

    And it shines like a mofo. When I had my WRX thats all I used like once a month not that it needed it but I liked doing it. I only wax my tacoma 2 times a year though.
