    i have a star silver astra too. i sometimes use sealant, sometimes wax. deffo wax after sealant. i use poorboys exp or fk1000 and then top with wax after a week or 2. dodo light fantastic as mentioned or autoglym hd wax are my choices on silver. collinite 476s is also good for the winter. there's a sticky on this forum for what works best for each colour, worth a look.
    WHAT? AH! NO, I LOST IT

    CG wet mirror finish isnt a sealant, but a polish. For silver paintwork i would say a acrylic based products will do well as it helps bring of the metallic paint fleck.

    Optimuin car wax or Jeffs acrylic gloss are commonly used on silver

    Wet mirror finish is an all in one paint polish/sealant so you can go straight with that and apply wax afterwards.
    The ez creme glaze by chemical guys is acrylic.
    Personal choice but fk1000p is a high temp paste wax sealant.
    You can use it on wheels aswell as bodywork and its very durable plus it gives that cold metal look needed for silvers.
