Default maintenance question

hi,

what's the difference between the carnauba wax cleaner, showtime instant detailer, reflections spray wax, and fx synwax?

i have just done the 3 step detailing and i am now on planning on maintaining the finish. i am after the wetlook finish that is durable.

btw, i live in a tropical climate in a city (rain and shine). during rains its very muddy, when its hot, its very dusty.

what i am after is what should i use after every other washing?

btw, my car is mitsubishi lancer glx 2000 with a tundra green color (stock)

If you did the 3-step, you'd want to maintain it with Pure Carnauba Wax and FX Spray Wax -- a product you didn't mention.

If you needed a light "detail," Showtime Instant Detailer will provide dust and fingerprint removal. FX Spray Wax is like a detailer, but heavier, and adds protection -- but takes just a little more time to use; good for after a wash.

FX SynWax is a synthetic cleaner wax; Carnauba Cleaner Wax is a tradtional cleaner wax -- either one would disrupt your 3-step.

The Carnauba Cleaner Wax and FX Synwax is a one step product. The difference is one is Carnauba based and the other is Synthetic based. Spray wax is a booster wax over the existing wax. Makes the wax last a little longer. Showtime can be used after a wash to remove water spots or to remove very light dust to give your car that just detail look.

After every wash I use Reflections Spray Wax, or Showtime. Use either after every wash.

here we go again... more confusion...

what should i choose if i want longetivity (longer protection) and wetlook shine?
- showtime
- fx spray wax
- reflections spray wax

i quite new and i don't get the idea between synthetic and carnauba based (is this an analogy to synthetic oil vs mineral oil)? if so, which is better?
