Default Spray on waxes ??

Are there any good waxes you just spray on the whole car that will do a decent job of shining and keeping the dirt off or do you just need to wipe on wipe off

I prefer to use a polish and not wax due to the paint jobs I do are fresh and I do not want to seal up the paint when curing/drying...and then ...even a few years later ....I still do not use wax...I use polish and it needs to be applied by hand and not sprayed on.

Some people will apply a polish to add resins and oils to the paint to keep it alive....so-to-speak... and then apply a wax by hand on top of it to seal in the polish.

****EDIT****

Reading another thread by you I assume this car is the C6. Even on factory paint that has been force cured from the factory...I am still in favor of adding a polish to add the stuff needed to the clear coat and not just apply a wax on it that makes water slide off and dirt easy to get off of it. The clear still needs to be nourished...in my opinion.
