As seen on TV.. or youtube ads

So I'm seeing alot of ads for F11 topcoat, Torque mirror shine, and TLC "the last coat". In the past I've used turtle and meguiars spray wax and was never impressed. I'm looking for something to finish off every other car wash, not a true wax, anybody have experience with these? I've seen TLC reviewed against F11 and TLC seems superior, but how about torque mirror shine? thanks guys!

Lay down some CQuartz UK ceramic, and follow it up with some CarPro Reload. Otherwise wax it and then use Reload.

No matter what the ads say there's no magic coating that's going to give a car a mirror finish. You get that with multi step machine polishing. The last step is to protect your polishing efforts with a sealant that sheds water and keeps the car less attracting to dust and dirt that scratch the paint when you wash the car. There are quite a few of those. I use Jescar Power Lock myself. I avoid anything that's advertised on TV, not that it's necessary not any good, but because it's going to be over-priced. TV advertising isn't free by any means.
