Tried Others, But I Always Come Back To Mother's
Rather than just offer my opinion on the wax product itself, I'll review the 3 step system of Mothers products.
I've been using the Mother's 3 step system (pre-wax cleaner, polish and glaze, and Carnauba paste wax) for about 20 years now, and have yet to find a better product.
The key to achieving a maximum shine is using the 3 step system. You need to properly clean and prepare the paint before the final wax application. If you apply this wax, (or any wax for that matter) without cleaning and polishing the paint beforehand, you won't achieve optimal results.
It's a lot of hard back-breaking work, but the results will be well worth it. I've never used the clay bar system, and just apply/buff out the products by hand. As a result, the end results are not as spectacular as they would otherwise be. That said, the polish will still eliminate many of the very fine scuffs and scratches that keep your paint from looking its best. The product really comes into its own when applied on dark colours. Black looks amazing.
Mothers takes a lot of work to realize maximum shine and protection, but if you're willing to put in the time and effort, it will definitely not disappoint.
For my daily driver, I found that the paint would bead up nicely for a few weeks, but would lose its protective qualities after 4-6 weeks. Environmental exposure is the most important variable of course. I'm sure there are other products that have longer lasting durability, but I've yet to find one that offers the depth of colour and shine as Mothers. Highly recommended!

What I like about this product is that its easy to apply and doesn't take a lot of elbow grease to remove either. I used to use turtle wax, they're good but take a lot to remove and also leave a lot of white residues.
With this product, I just need to apply with an applicator (wish it came with one) leave it for 30 seconds for it to haze then wipe off with a microfiber towel.
It shines well off my black car, however the water didn't bead off it as much as expected.
Overall, I still recommend it just because the ease of use.

Easy on, easy off, nice results!
I have a collection of different car waxes including some fancy expensive ones ordered online but my can of mothers paste wax is the one I grab for most often.
Its easy to apply, buffs off fairly easily and leaves a nice shine.
The shine and protection usually lasts at least a month, which isn't as long as some synthetic waxes, but this stuff is so easy to use!!
Best of all, no white powder to clean when your done!
