Bilt Hamber Hydra-Wax is an outstanding product. So easy to apply and buff off and leaves a stunning finish, with no difficult residues to deal with. Only downside is that it doesn't last as long as some other waxes or sealants, but who cares when you can wax an entire car in under 30 mins.
If you have a few swirls, try a couple of passes of Prima Amigo using firm pressure. This stuff has very light cutting compounds to soften the effect of any swirl marks or minor scratches and has fillers to hide what it can't remove. Also makes black appear deeper and wetter. Note that this stuff is also a pretty aggresive and useful paint cleanser, though always top off with at least one coat of wax/sealant.
