Best wax/polish for Alpine White color (archive)

I have a '91 M3 with the Alpine White II original paint color. The paint is really in great shape and is as smooth as glass with little to no (major) scratches or chips. Only very small chips or fine fine scratches exist on the paint.

Since I tend to be a perfectionist, I really want a super deep shine out of the paint, but haven't found the right combination of products.

On the last wax job I used:
Stage 1: 3M Rubbing Compound
Stage 2: Meguiars Paint Cleaner
Stage 3: Meguiars Swirl Remover
Stage 4: Liquid Glass Polish

To most people the car looks great, but I can only get about 9" of 'depth' when I hold a ruler to the paint. I want a 'foot deep shine' with glossy/blinding results, but how do I achieve that with a white car that has no clear coat?

What products do you other owners of Alpine White cars use? [FYI: I've also used other products like Mother's and Meguiars caruba waxes with mediocre results (compared to Liquid Glass)]

Any suggestions or recommendations (Zaino, Zymol, Wax Shop)?
