I've never tried the plegde thing. For wax though, I use Meguire's 3 step waxing. Don't use the third bottle though. Instead, go with Meguire's Tech wax. When I'm done with it, it leaves the car looking as though it were wet. Very nice gloss. I could shave in the mirror finish it leaves.
'05 Base Coupe, Blue, 2.2L, 5 speed manual, Too many mods to list in this signature. I'll just say insanely loud system, fully upgraded suspension (nothing original), Intake, Full Exhaust from the engine back, Rims, Tires, etc... Give me about a month to get back stateside and pics will be posted in the vBGarage.
