Wax Question

Ok I live in an area where it gets REALLY hot in the summer, I've been using Meguires Paste Wax for about a year. The shine right afer the waxing looks REALLY nice but after a few days the moisture and sun have at it and it starts to look spotty. Anyone have a really durable waxing product? I was thinking of NU Finish since I read on the NSX board that it came in 2nd for shine but first for durability. My other option is Zymol buy $$$$$ Cha Ching it's expensive!

Jag.... About a month ago I buffed and waxed my 93 Ford F150. It had not had anything done to it in about 4 years, except driving it. I used NuFinish on it, and it looks great. I don't know how long it will last, but it was easy to use. I doubt that it will last for 4 years, so will probably have to get rid of it before it gets too dirty.

Lots of the newer "hi tech" waxes actualy contain silicone. Personally, I will not use a wax that contains silicone. I have been using Mequire products for many years and see no reason to switch. Another good wax is produced by 3M and is availiable from your better auto paint supply stores.

I have used NuFinish before and it really is great. It even restored a fiberglass snowmobile hood that was heat faded when no other product would make a difference.

I'm sold.
