if you want some real protection for your paint, go find a detailer and ask what kind of sealants he has. those last pretty long depending on which one

edit: actually if it's protection you want, it isn't expensive to buy yourself. Expect to be spending a solid 5-6 hours DIYing it though

here's what i recommend you get

car wash shampoo
clay bar kit - claying isn't from the devil. you just have to learn to do it which isn't hard

sealant - duragloss #105 lasts 6 months

extra bits that are nice
duragloss #601 before #105 helps it stick better
a carnauba wax of your choice
