This is the info I got to the same question a few months back, thanks to Juztang.And it works great!

Ok that helps out a lot. Since your car is basically new. Here is what I would do. Poorboys Pro Polish...this is a chemical polish and has no abrassives. This will bring out more shine and completely clean your paint getting it ready for the sealant and wax. Then I would add the Poorboys EX-P Sealant and top with either Poorboys Natty's blue paste wax or ClearKote Carnuba Wax. This combo will add a lot of reflection,depth, and nice durability.

If you are looking for some good microfibers, I carry the Mega Plush by Poorboy's. These are about the softest microfibers you can find. These are the only towels that touch my Saleens paint!

I do the Meguirs 1-2-3 step thing, its a cleaner, polish, wax and is pretty easy to use. I have tried a sealant instead of wax, which is just a spray and wipe job, but it doesn't stand out like wax, even though I can do the whole car in 1/2 the time it takes to do the waxing and buffing.
Most name brands will work best with this type of process. You might try detail clay first, as little contaminants could show in your red paint. Do a little section of the tail first and then feel it compared to an area you didn't do. Chances are you'll feel a big difference, like shaving just 1/2 your face, and end up claying the whole car.
