Today was perfect autumn weather for washing the car, and this is the first time I have used a wax sealer as opposed to 'just' polish. Pity it's going to rain tomorrow....

Wow awesome shine! is it that much harder than polish?
Once I'd got going, and the wax warmed up a bit, it wasn't actually too much effort to apply using the supplied foam pad. I worked round the whole car, then took a short break while the wax dried before buffing. I'd say under these conditions it wasn't much harder than using a thick polish like Autoglym.

I can imagine this being a pain to do in winter if the wax stayed rock solid though.

That looks properly good! Top tip for you though, go over the car with a Meguire's clay bar kit first to get rid of the tiny imperfections that show up Here's a pic of the wife's 33 after I clayed and waxed it to give you an idea :)

holy sh1t. thats some reflection
Bloody hell, I second that! I will always have a distorted reflection 'cos I didn't have the paint flattened before lacquering (mine was straight out of the gun). At ~1 month old I didn't think the paint needed claying yet, but I will do from next month.
