As has been said above.. Poorboys Black Hole but with some of their Natty Blue wax!
As your beast is new to you, you should start with a pukka machine polish to get it into a condition that you just have to preserve.
Failing that, clay the car first and then use a hand polish - Autoglym SRP will do a reasonable job, as will Turtle Wax Colour Magic.. both of these have some abrasive qualities and contain fillers, so they'll leave you car pretty smooth and shiny after the clay.
But don't sit back on it then (for one thing, you might mark the paint!
) .. get the Black Hole on it.. let it dry, buff it off and then put a wax on it. Once you've done that, if there is any of the weekend left (you thought it was a 1 or 2 hours job, didn't you?
) then wax it again. But the beast should be seriously smooth and shiny now... you shouldn't be able to put a microfibre towel on the bonnet without it sliding off.
Then you only have to wash it and top up with a quick waxing every month or so... so you'll save time in the long run.
