Default GM Iridium paint

Hi guys. My wife just got a new GMC Terrain in Iridium color which is a metallic dark gray that turns into a warm brown under the sun. Great looking vehicle especially in this color (and Denali trim). The paint is still plenty smooth so I will skip clay baring it and go straight to wax. I was thinking CG Synthetic Liquid but I'm open to suggestions. I do want a deep, wet gloss. Anyone have experience with this GM paint?

Thanks in advance...

California Gold Synthetic would be what I'd use.

Consider polishing it beforehand if there is any micro-marring present in direct sunlight.

No marring or swirls, and no time for polish. I forgot where I stashed my CG wax so I ended up with Reflections. So instead of that deep wet look, I got a crisp mirror shine. I stayed up way too late finishing the 2-step process but the Terrain looked great at 3am. Looking forward to seeing it in the sun when my wife gets home.
