I bought a wax for my car about 12 years ago and it still sits in my garage. That car is long gone anyway.
Waxing is very elbow grease-consuming job and the car with unpolished wax looks plain stupid.
Good part is MB paint is so excellent, that even our 15 years old cars are still taken for new ones.
All it takes is good quality water and brush. I am using RV style brush on commercial painters pole so I can make basic wash in the mater of 90 seconds.
If you don't have good quality water, consider whole house water softener with faucet for car washing, or at least buy hose-end softener.
With treated water you don't need to wipe the car, what is big part of the process.
If your paint shows advanced oxidation - try clay bar.
