    I'd go with a variation of Guz's suggestion. I'd simply coat it with CQuartz UK 3.0. It's easy to maintain, looks great, and will last a long time.
    No performance options and none needed IMO. It's bonkers fast and grips very well for what it is.

    CQuartz is popular for a reason, it's a proven entity. I'm certainly considering it.

    The color of your car reminds me of my sons car I did a couple years ago with Syncro.

    Awesome vehicle and beautiful color. That blue is what would be the final cherry on top of any dream car for me. Is this the X-drive or RWD?

    In case you want another vote, I’ll only suggest looking into PA’s blue carnauba flake cream to use over whichever LSP you choose. I’ve never tried it but the black spray is great and it will keep really nice shine for a few months and is an ideal maintenance product for what you’re looking for. As a bonus, if you go with a sealant, the PA Spray will improve your hydrophobicity, but main attraction is shine.

    Too many nice LSPs already mentioned for me to chime in.

    It's xDrive.

    I looked and didn't see blue carnauba flake cream, I saw black, white, and red. They make interesting claims for longevity and chemical resistance for a wax.

    I see it now, it's not carnauba flake cream it's part of the carnauba arts family.

    Yes, sorry about that. I get the group names mixed up sometimes. The Xilion is what I was referring to.

    Does anyone have experience with Xtreme Solutions Poly-Seal polymer sealant? POLY-SEAL HYBRID POLYMER SPRAY SEALANT | Xtreme Solutions I've been watching tons of Apex Detailing videos lately and this caught my eye. It seems to have outstanding gloss, good hydrophobicity, and really impressive chemical resistance. After I correct the paint, this could be the only product I need as it's really easy to reapply when needed.

    I honestly like the looks a good coating gives. Mine isn't a color that pops but the shine I get from the coating looks good to me. Here are a couple pictures of the last two times I washed the 1st is the day after Christmas and second was last Sunday. So far no toppers used. Not bad for a car about 11 years old.
