    are you getting someon to start it up for you weekly? as its not a good idea to leave it that long with out starting... ive had to leave mine for 4 months, and im worried that i might have problems when i get back.

              collonite 476 is your best bet , id get 3 or 4 layers on if you can 24hrs apart and it will be fine....Id also invest in some swissvax pneu and do all the rubber seals with it and wiper blades aswell as these will then be well protected.

                  If its been stored inside as well invest in a soft car cover.

                      I found Zaino All in one with a top layer of Zaino Clearseal and odd top ups with Zaino Z8 after washes to be very durable....my Burg was wearing this for 6 months and there was pretty much zero tar stuck to it, muck just doesnt stick to Zaino! I had the odd stuck on spots including orange rust like contamination on the boot lid and rear bumper but a bit of claying removed that no problem.
                      I found the Zaino lasted alot longer and muck just didnt stick easily compared to a couple of layers of Collinite 476S i had on my Focus ST.
                      I've had the car in the garage for the last few weeks giving it a winter clean...clay and reapply the Zaino, wheels off etc etc so i'm quite aware how good the Zaino has been.
                      Zaino Z2 + ZFX for a few layers would be a good alternative and its something i'm going to try for the summer clean come Spring.
