Most of us here already know Prima Amigo. It is one of the best cleaner glazes around.
About 4 months ago I detailed a Nissan Qashqai where I used Prima Epic as an LSP, obviously on top of Amigo. At that point I did like the finish and the reflections it gave. They were nice and warm without that plastic look some sealants might give. But what really impressed me is the durability of this product.
Here is a video of Epic beeding four months after original application. Let me note that the car is a daily driver and was not looked after properly with quick detailers nor quick waxes.

And some beeding shots of it:

Not bad
Pretty much similar to my Bilt Hamber Finis Wax after about the same time scale
Quite a lot of these LSP's do a similar job
Its what you like that matters
However some waxes are poor on durability ...so its real trial and error and recommendation that counts
Thanks Mick

As with any LSP my preferred method would be to fully clean/prep the paint, 2-3 layers of LSP and then carry on with a QD for the next few months.
Trying to get the paint fully clean in the intermediate it might result in stripping some of the previously applied LSP. On the other hand if not properly cleaned then any contaminants will be sealed as well with the LSP.
For the summer where the clear coat is exposed to the sun more hours per day I would suggest a QD with some wax in (ie Z8 or FK#425) as UV radiation can brake down the wax significantly faster.
