dutCH-R I use sealant Collinite #845. Amazing synthetic wax for a reasonable price. And always hand wash.
After a wash it starts water beading again.

Some automatic car washes use very aggressive shampoo that kills your wax layer.

Sir, we used (concentrate, it'll last you forever) ..
- Hydro2 Touchless Silica Sealant 500 ml.
- Chemical Guys CWS_110 Honeydew Snow Foam Car Wash Soap and Cleanser

So far, we're NEVER going to not hand-wash our car.. check back in 2-3 years maybe we'll be tired of washing by then haha.

Shorty I think you guys would be better off going with a stone chip/protective film, rather than one of those ugly bug deflectors. They are extremely durable and you wont have to worry about damaging the paint when removing those pesky critters. You can also opt to protect the whole hood/bumper or just the sections you are concerned about.
