I've always like Autoglym.. not a hard wax, doesn't last terribly long, but it goes on easy, comes off just as. Works well for clear plastic windows and doesn't turn your blacks white, in fact I would use it on bumpers and trim also. Works well by hand and machine, Pretty fool proof. They have a lot more products now since I bought my last gallon (back then it was $20something..) its changed a bit.

Does mud count as wax?

I don't always wax.
But when I do, I prefer Patina.

I own a detail shop here in NH, I use Chemical Guys Butter Wet Wax, by far and away the best wax I have ever used on vehicles.
