    Depends on what your desired results are.
    If you want durability then something like colly 476s is great; very good and tight beading too. Good reflections. 6 months + from a single application isn't unheard of, but one every 3 months is recomended.

    Something like chemical guys XXX wax has a high carnauba level, giving great shine but not so hot durability, 3-6 weeks perhaps, depending on usage, quality of surface prep prior to waxing etc.

    I havn't used nattys before, but hear it smells great and goes on easy. Quite similar to XXX to, apparantly. Megs waxes are well thought of as well.

    If your budget will stretch, Dodo wax is excelent. £32 for the pot. 'Light Fantastic' is the soft wax for light colours like yours, 'Diamond White' is the hard wax for the same colours.

    Detritus.

    Well I can comment on the two megs ones but have never used nattys. The stage 3 is a bit poor but the #16 is great on silvers as you can see here

    Leave the deep crystal step 3 on the shelf if your looking for a decent wax.

    If you want durability, high carnauba content is better, I love dodo juice banana armour yeah its suposed to be best on warm coloured cars but it looks great on other colours and durability is excelent.

    Collinite waxes are great for durability they last ages so if thats somthing your wanting then they are highly recomended 478 or 915 and a great price.

    You mean 476?

    Both Collinite 476 or 915 get my vote.

    Another one to add to your list - the 3D blue paste wax from AutoBrite.

    I bought a tin in spring and used it on my star silver estate for PVS. It's easy to apply, easy to buff off, and lasts very well. Only downside is that i doesn't smell of anything in particular - but it is about half the price of the Dodo Juice stuff

    Agreed colly 476 or 915. I've had some good results with 476s on silver

    Nattys is the siest to use, and would need re-doing every 2 months.

    RE: rear door, looks re-sprayed to me. Compare the finish to rear quarter.
