There used to be one type of clay on the market due to patents, but there are at least two types now. I use Zaino but Claymagic is available locally. Avoid Pinnacle, it's the one product of theirs I don't like.
Prep is critical. Generally we do a wash, clay, wash and then 1-3 stages of polishing before applying a sealant or wax depending on condition of paint.
