never tried zaino but all the good reviews have swayed me to give it a shot. do you still use a traditional wax with the zaino or just the z-2 polish is enough.

i have the Z-aio, Z-2, z-6, and z-7 anythin im missing?

Zaino is used in place of wax. Zaino offers the best durability IMO.

They compared the Zaino against the older Wolfgang formula, Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Sealant 3.0 is kick a$$ , but a little expensive

I have never tried Zaino, but I use Meguirs Liquid wax on my cars and it produces a smooth and beautiful luster.

I use Zaino!

and would never use amor-all

I guess that test puts it out there for everybody



The clear winner was once again, Zaino. I'm sorry folks, but there's nothing I can say about the stuff that hasn't been said hundreds of times before. Read the 7-week Notes for final thoughts on the product. Simply put, it is the benchmark for which all other products should try to achieve. And no, I don't sell it, I don't have any interest in it, and I've never met the owners. I send in my money like everyone else does (although this Z2 is rather old - I need to reorder soon). If you're looking for reliable, bullet-proof durability with a high gloss, look no further.

Good Question, Anyone tried theZaino Leather Cleaners? I'll have the Inferno Leather If you think that'll matter on what product to use.

Zaino rocks no question about that but i like to try other brands so im not brand loyal like a lot of the guys here. For over the counter 3 popular choice's are mothers syn wax,meguires nxt 2.0 and turtle wax ice. Now for boutique the choice's really open up for you. There's zaino,adams,wolfgang,p21,klasse,victoria wax,pinnacle and poorboys just to name a few. One thing though to keeping a good looking finish is good technique and the proper tools. A lot of the damage you see to people's paint these days is they dont wash the car correctly so they end up scratching the clear coat and make a mess of it. For information while there is some good stuff here autopia.org is the place to go for the best and current information. Those guys dont stick to one brand like here. Good luck

I've tried Zaino's leather protectant and it OK I guess. I use Meguiar's interior products the most and get excellent results. Zaino is my only coice for paint products. I have a black car and even if I take it to a car wash on occasion I don't seem to have swirl marks like I used to get with other products. The Z5 is specially made to take care of them.

I would just go with Meguiars because its much cheaper and im pretty sure your car is a daily driver. So your gonna wash your car alot and use alot of product. Meguiars has some good shit and for the price cant beat it. You can get a perfect shine with anything, just need to know how to use the product.

even in the face of real world testing people still want to believe that other stuff is just as good

ok black is hard color to hide scratch's from. also you wont scratch the paint its the clear coat you want to protect. Now first when washing the car hose it down good, second i use a microfiber cloth, also i use meguires gold soap mix it with warm water, and every time i am done wiping down a section of the car i was the cloth off before it touches the soapy water. helps keep it clean, all you can do now is put a nice layer of wax look for mequires carneuba wax or the nxt wax put it on wipe it off, then go buy your self the california duster or something like that. you will know when you see it say california. its a stick with an end that has a microfiber end and it has wax on it. good for wiping the car down with slight dust. will not scratch and saves the money and time of detail spray. but remember as long as you have a good layer of wax you should be good the dust will come right off. i never used zaino and never heard of it have no replys about it. GOOD LUCK WITH THE BLACK
