Chemical Guys Black Light wax has been the best thing I have used on dark paint. I haven't ceramic coated anything personally, but if it holds up it would be nice.

I wouldn’t use ceramic wax with what it cost to have it done. Hell even if you get some swirl marks they buff out. You spill a little diesel while fueling like a lot of guys do. Your wax is gone. You get a scratch and want to buff it out? Your wax is gone.

When I lived in am apartment. I hand washed my vehicular at the coin wash in the evening/morning when no one was around then would wax it at home with 100’ of extension cord off my balcony.
