if you want durability, i'd go with duragloss #105. hard to beat 10 dollars a bottle for 6 months per application. i've heard a case of it lasting a year as well

Beading has almost nothing to do with wax performance. The better test is wash the car and use a soft terry towel rub and apply some pressure across the paint and see if it slides or squeeks. If it squeeks it is time to wax.

The paint will bead for a long time, well after the wax is not doing the best job.

I love Wolfgang's products. Iv used everything from Zaino to Mothers. Their polish works great and their deep gloss paint sealent is super easy to remove....literally wipes off.
