I forgot about Finesse, a lot of body shops use it. Very nice polish! That polyrazmataz stuff is the chit!

1 coat for every foot!

To be honest I agree
Mothers makes a nice 3 phase system for autos.
1- pre-wax cleaner
2- sealer/glaze
3- carnuba wax

I use it on my truck and boat works and looks great

Wax will slow you down. It fills in all the pores and rough edges in the glass (which is why it looks shiny, reflection is bounced back strait). What has less resistance, air or water? air. Air fills those little pores and rough edges when there is no wax.
