Polish is different to wax - the processes achieve different results. I like to polish and then apply a really good wax (I use Collinite 476S on my C900). The wax can then be "topped up" after each wash without the need of polishing. If you want to re-polish, say, to get some swirls out, you need to remove the wax with an aggressive wash first. Now my cars are gleaming, I just spray a hose over them each week and the dirt falls off. A light hand wash with Meg's Gold Class shampoo and water, then top up the Collinite wax.
