    White is great for not showing imperfections (swirls,light scratches ect) but shows all the dirt real fast......Have you tried meguairs NXT ???.... I'd claybar the car , polish and NXT the paint. Can hardly beat the shine that NXT gives even when alittle dirty. And should wash up easily. It may not be one of longer lasting sealants but the gloss is 2nd to none.....

    I've use Zaino and in fact still do somtimes. This is another good choose...This will give you a shine that will make you squint in the sunlight, be easy to keep clean and last a good few months....

    Dirt mutes glossy paint real quick so it something you may have to tolerate. Have you tried a detailer between washings. If its not real dirty that is.........

    Keep a good quality car cover on it at all times that it's not rolling ( even when it's in the garage ). You will be amazed at how clean it stays.........
