What is the best wax for black paint?

My question is partially rhetorical.
I think I've already found the answer, but I also wanted to see what others thought? I posted the full explanation and photos of my newly waxed triumph on my blog at http://panofish.net/what-is-the-best...r-black-paint/

Zaino is the best wax ever. It looks like there is a layer of water over your paint.

I am fairly fond of the blue Zymol stuff, but sounds like I might have to check out Zaino...

Yes it's a wax and it's a little pricey, I think a starter kit is about a $100, but it comes with clay bars and what not. I think you can buy just the wax for about $50. It will last forever on your bike.

$100.00 yikes. The finish will last forever or the amount sold for that price will last forever?

But when you see a vehicle with this wax on it in person, you'll have to have it.
