    Typically, a sealant will last longer than a wax.

    Duragloss Aquawax is a good product but best used to 'top up' after using one of their sealants like Duragloss 105 or 111. To extend the durability it is recommended that Duragloss 601 bonding agent is applied first.

    Nanolex make sealants that will last for a year, these cost a bit more but work really well.

    Both will give the car a wet look if the paint is prep'd correctly (wash,clay,polish).

    Alternatively, Dodo do a fine selection a waxes which will add depth to the finish. Their top of the line Supernatural wax is a personal fave.

    Hope this helps

    Wax only adds a small percentage to the overall finish and even applying the most expensive wax on the market will not guarantee glossy, sparkling finish it is all to do with the prep work and the polishing of the paintwork. Sure a wax/sealants will add something to the finish of a properly prepped and machine polished paint surface but as said it is a much smaller percentage than you may think. Sealants will out last waxes and as I've said many times sealants can be topped of with a wax to add a little more to the finish, but in terms of looks you cant beat a high grade wax. There are some sealants out there that can compete with waxes, Zaino for instance being one of these.

    What about Autoglym Extra Gloss Protection, would that do the job?

    If not, at what stage of the proceedings (ie Clay, polish and wax) do you apply the layer of Autoglym EGP, or what does it actually do?
