Usually at local garage powerwash once a week.
If its a quick shine im after, Meguires Detailer Quick Wax - a good dry wash stuff too, if car is just a little dirty / dusty.
Or if im spending time on a good day, Dodo Juice Supernatural Wax - great stuff (but expensive, a 30ml sample panel pot usually lasts me a year).
After two coats (usually over two days), the depth of reflections in daylight is amazing and at night, the sharpness of reflections of lights are fantastic.
Theres a "U" shape profile on the rav bonnet and when its a sunny day, the front bit catches the light and looks so "deep" from drivers and passengers point of view.
On the grey plastic trim, Autoglym Bumper Gel stuff, (green label).

A picture when I first got the Rav, previous owners had kept it well washed and clean...

A picture after maintaining coats / levels of waxes, it is two different cameras hence the different shades of red, but the reflections are so much crisper and deeper...
