Zaino....But you cant find it just anywhere. My advice is to buy a clay bar kit, Then some good polish/wax for it. Gold class is nice.

why do people usually wax their cars AFTER they need it most [Confused] [Confused]

Anyway ,Mguiars(spelling) goldclass is awesome for a quick shine, comes off easier then anything ive ever used, and shines like no other.

Always use mguiars .... in the red jar during winter with the r.o. buffer. works like a champ too, but doesn't shine like the gold glass.

i use a 4 step wax process step 1, step 2 and step 26 of megiaurs (sp) and then i use a zymoil polish spray on top of that. takes a good 2 and a half hours but well worth it

Mequiars Gold Class is the best wax i've used. It's the most popular brand here in downunder.

zaino will beat meguiars easily. removal is by far, the easiest i have ever done. can be applied in sun or shade, absolutely the best protection/shine ever. can be layered. if you got a dark car, each coat enhances the shine. sucker really comes out mirror finish. i liked gold class, too, but it would only last a short time. once you use zaino, you will NEVER go back.

Zaino is great for maintence waxing. But if you have a white car, Meguiar's Cleaner Wax is great for renewing the "trueness" to the white. As far as I know it will take just about any discoloration out of any color. I personally have only used it on white.

DO NOT forget to clay bar your car. IT takes work but it is well worth it.

I've been using Meguiar's producs on my car since I got it. It still lookd great. I don't have a digital camera to share a pic, but it doesn't look like a 12 year old car at all.

the problem with most cleaner/waxes is that the next coat always REMOVES whatever is on there. zaino, and some other brands allow layering, which adds a ton of protection. also, zaino is the ONLY one i have found to protect against stuff like birdshit and road tars. no other wax/polish has come close. and, no other can match the shine. add on the ease of on/off, and it just cant be beat.

Wow Ken, sounds like you really love this product.. I was thinkin about waxing my car soon and was also wondering what kind to get. Where can I get zaino? At a store like pep boys? Is there a special 'model' or is it just zaino wax?

there is a downside, the initial prep. you have to remove all the old wax(they recommend a bath in dawn dishwashing detergent). then, what i did, was claybar the entire car. then, you wipe on this polishlok, and then apply the first coat right over the polishlok. let it sit for at least an hour, then wipe it off. after that, all you do is just put on the polish, or the scratch remover. they also have this spray-on-wipe-off detailer, that REALLY makes it shine. you have to wait 24 hours before you put on another coat. but it is so easy now, and it really looks good.
