Check out the products at Adams. Great results and easy to use. If your paint is in good shape you'll use the hand products.

Vancouver Washington or Vancouver BC?
Rob, tell us the color of the 745 and whether you have any power tools yet, tools like a PC random orbital polisher or if you do everything by hand.
Tell us too if you're looking for a beauty wax/sealant or a wax that gives long term protection.
Once we know your skill set, we'll jump in with a million suggestions,

Honestly, they all do pretty good just as long as you apply them correctly and at least once every few months. Truth is, if you have a black paint job you have to take care of it. If you dont - wet sand it and compound and you will get your shine back right away.

If you want durabilty then our Blackfire Wet-Ice Over Fire Shine Kit, will be the choice to go with. This shine has a liquid wetness on the surface yet still allows the depth and energy of the paint to radiate through! The best of both worlds that will give you the look and protection your looking of for, in a car care product like no other around. Your car will thank you!

I use Menzernas Power Lock Sealant topped with P21S pure Carnuaba. Tried a lot of other stuff, this works the best for my on black and it doesn't streak. I haven't tried the Blackfire stuff, but I use Wolfgang polishes with a porter cable.

Being a Detailer, On my personal BMW I use Klasse AIO once a year then I go with some DoDo Juice Supernatural to bring the "Bling" I use DP Wheel Glaze for the wheels (taking them off at least 2 times a year to get the barrel) and for the tires I use PEAR by CarPro... Interior for all of the leather I use Leatherique... Carpets I use DP carpet cleaner and an extractor then I coat with Scotchguard for automotive...
For the convertible top I use a mild AIO cleaner then the Scotchguard...

That is my basic regimen
