Sorry for the late reply... I'm no wax expert by any means but I don't think you get any benefit from some of the higher end waxes. I've used a few that were in the $300-500 range and have stuck with P21S Concours Paste wax... The expensive waxes were simply more expensive I believe and while they may give a bit better glow/shine/etc. (I didn't notice any and neither do people randomly testing stuff like this all over the world... if they do it's very rare) I would still not be able to justify the price. There are many respected detailers using high end waxes and liking them much better but it's not something I would recommend. I firmly believe and can easily prove that 90-95% of the shine/glow/depth/etc is in the prep/polishing and a wax/sealant might add some extra shine but not much.
