Question Polish or Wax after MM 12000 ?

I have achieved great results wet sanding the CA finish with Micromesh up to 12000. I am thinking that I could apply a wax or polish to it at the end but I do not want to use anything with any grit to it because the finish is already quite glossy. Are there any recommendations for a car wax or polish that would do the job?

I use Hut's Ultra Gloss Plastic Polish and then a light application (very light) of Ren Wax.
About 2 months ago I started MM through the 2nd pad (green) then using Dr. Kirk's Micro Magic Polishing Wax Kit number 1, 2, and 3 and then finishing with Hut's and Ren Wax - So far I am fairly impressed with Dr Kirk's - faster and easier than MM and the finished product is just as good from my testing so far!

I use Meguire's (sp) antiswirl, but any brand should do OK.
