How to handle faded paint

What is the best way to handle faded paint? I have read some of the different postings on matching paint and waxing and the types of wax to use...but I am still not sure.

If the paint is faded what is the best course of action...

I have tried some liquid wax and that really didn't do anything at all

Should I try some rubbing compound first? I can't afford to have a body shop do it and I can't afford a new paint job.

The color of my 300d is a darker green metallic looking color.

Thank you

Do you think some clay and wax will fix this?

oxidation...

read the post below on the wax issue...
you may get a nice result with the pre-treatment cleaner..
it lifts a lot of the surface embedded dirt off the car...if it starts shining, wack a nice shot of AT-5 on it and your rolling
good luck
