Depends on a few things:

Budget
Looks
Durability

If you want a wax that looks good and has excellent durability then Collinite 476 and 915 would be ideal. If you want something that looks better but needs a more frequent application then I would recommend Victoria Concours as it leaves a nice glossy finish.

Slightly more expensive is Raceglaze 55 - one of my faves.

The Dodo Juices are also very good and I find slightly more durable than the Vics.

Obviously if you want to spend £100+ then Swissvax Best of Show is very nice.

The key to any finish is preperation. If it were me I would look at a using a Glaze first such as Megs #7 or Chem Guys EZ Creme then add a couple of layers of Vic Concours.

HTHs and if you say your budget, durability requirements and the looks you want then that may help...

You can't go far wrong with a tin of Collinite #915 if you are after a durable finish.

Otherwise for looks alone Victoria Concours, I actually find this ou tlasts the Dodo though..
