I’m sure there are loads of great options, though I recently used Collinite 476 after a machine polish because it is one of the longest lasting waxes. Fwiw it is easy to apply and is still ‘beading’ nicely a month on.

Depends on the type of black really, a good metallic really get’s the best out of a sealant / wax so something like a Si02 ceramic wax eg Waxaddict Quarts ( I use Vortex because I got it at a good price ).

Although a good tried and true on almost every car is the Collonite 915 Marque D'elegance and Autoglym HD wax.

Depends on what you’re after but Waxaddict is definitely my favourite of them all.

Another shout for 476. Been using it for years.  Beads for ages and works well on wheels also, and even better, it's cheap!

It's probably not the best wax out there, but it's certainly a good go to wax if you're lazy like me and only do it once a year.

I use Car Lack 68 sealant and then some 476s on top. Fantastic result and water beads off for about three months! If I’m lazy or in winter I just use the sealant as it goes on and off so easy.

Can you still get coloured waxes to help reduce the obviousness of stone chips and minor scuffs and scratches?

Yes, Dodojuice is the main manufacturer of them, and they're very good waxes too, but it is limited in what the coloured waxes can do. I use them more for tinting paints to get whiter appearances, tone down paint etc.
