Big thumbs up to Zaino

Took the plunge and bought the zaino for a car that im not sure might ever show up. Just wanted to point out i ordered it YESTERDAY and it came to my office today, neatly packaged in a white box with each bottle quarantined in its own little compartment. It also came with a pretty comprehensive instructions page and an extra applicator (total 3) with the Complete Show Car System or whatever it was called, that i bought for 90+ bucks


I wish there were other car product companies that worked as quickly and efficiently as they have... I'll be sure to put the included sticker on my little side panel window.

Glad to see you're happy with Zaino. It's an amazing product.

Zaino has great products and customer service. UPS lost my package last week ($150 worth of products) and Zaino shipped me a new order on Tuesday.

I did the same last week. However I do not have my car yet :( so been trying out on my motorcycle. So far, great product, drying time can be long between coats, but it is easy to work with. Do as they say, us sparingly. A friend has a 08 Super Snake triple black, paint,stripes,interior. Never seen a black car look so good as his, thanks to zaino.

Have you tried the ZFX? Might help quicken up that drying time.

Yes I used the ZFX, I had a nice day dried pretty good, next day little cooler and humid that impacted the drying time. What is nice you can just leave it on all night if you want then wipe it off.

I suggest practicing on another car in the meantime. Its hard to get used to using the correct amount of Zaino

I used my wifes car as the practice car....

when my car arrived, I was a pro already

Which Zaino product should we use? I cannot determine from thier website and other threads. I would assume we would want to use a pure wax for protection purposes, not a polish, correct? However the Z-2 Pro is the only thing that I can find that would be for a brand new car but it states polish in the title.

I'm planning on buying the complete 90 dollar kit they offer. Does anybody know of any discounts on Zaino products? Just wondering before I make the purchase.

Thanks.

No discounts I'm aware of. Although my distributor sometimes throws in an extra applicator or two.
