waxing more frequently than every 3 months is overkill IMO.

Once a month a quick touch up with P21S. Washing every weekend, using a quick detailer if time permits.

I use the NXT Tech paste wax, im happy with it unless someone wants to send me free samples (and by samples I mean a normal sized can) of another product.
