The secret is in the preparation though.
pressure wash with APC

rinse and or snow foam again
cleanse with IPA
wax glaze - 2 coats
use a sealant C1+ and C1.5 (two coats of the later)
wax - 2 coats.
Interior and glass - yet more work.
Two or three days later a gleaming car just needing a wash or a snow foam when dirty for 6 months.
There's no need to apply wax after C1.5, the wax is adding no benefit.
