    The ideas you desire are mutually exclusive, because you can have a long lasting protection by applying a paint sealant, such as Classe. But the Classe does not give a good shine, just 6 to 12 months of protection from the industrial fallout your car experiences while out on the roadways.

    On the other hand, a good Carnuba or paste wax will yield a great shine, but not lasting protection like the sealant.

    Therefore, you should first apply the sealant and then follow up with the paste wax to achieve your desired outcome.

    Good Luck

    Your going to need a good paste wax. But your also going to need to prep your car's surface properly so that the wax can work. Wash the car with a good quality car soap. Then use a good clay bar system and clay the whole car. Next use a good pre-wax degreaser to clean the car's surface. Do this before you wax. I recommend Meguiars products but they are a bit pricey.
