I'm always a bit sceptical about using products like the Flash Car Wash thingy.
Using something like this doesn't give any proper wax protection to the paint.

Personally, I swear by Meguiars Gold Class shampoo, and their waxes and polishes.

My car only gets waxed every 6 weeks or so, but when it's washed in between, it doesn't get streaky marks. The trick is not to spray rinse the car, but to put a steady stream of water on to it (I use a Hozelock hose connector). NEVER use one of the wiper blades made by Autoglym, the just invite nice long scratches.

This is a lot cheaper than using filters, but it's all down to preference - and time.
