I have to say, waxing a car is not my favorite hobby. I did though feel the need to give my new asset a coat of wax just recently (to preserve my investment of course) I ended up buying 'turtle wax ICE'; very expensive but a superb wax to work with. It really showed when the car got wet and how much the wax was repelling the water. It had a great write up in some of the motor mags and it's longevity between applications was what swayed me in the end. No hidden white residue, can wax in sunshine, easy on, easy off. It was almost zen like when applying it.
