We heard to keep the paint nice it's best to get a good wax job, where do you recommend? The place we take our car for service wants $100 for a good wash and wax. People tell us to wax it ourselves but in the past when we waxed our other cars we had swirl marks that seemed to be permanent. Any recommendations? and how often should we do it?

Can't help you but my first reaction to your post title was that you wanted to get your legs waxed. Silly me. Good luck finding a place.

Just hand wash the car yourself then apply this after washing:

Amazon.com: Meguiar's G17516 Ultimate Quik Wax - 15.2 oz.: Automotive

Meguiar’s Ultimate Quik Wax can be used alone for paint protection, but it also makes a perfect maintenance wax for existing wax applications. It is a great way to maintain the just waxed looked on any vehicle without having to use a liquid or paste wax. It is also great way to reinforce the polymer protection on its paint after regular washing.
Basically it's more or less a "mini wax" that protects your paint and existing "full" wax and gives your car the glossy look. Now for a full wax like clay bar etc, you should probably do that every 6 months and use that Quik Wax stuff I posted a few times in between that every 6 months for extra protection. Search yelp, angie's list and other review sites for good places to get full waxes.

I just had mine washed and waxed at Danny's for coupon special of $29.95. Great job, looks like new again. You can get a coupon on their web site: Danny's Car Wash. They are located all over the valley.
