Now Folks Zanio is NOT a WAX, works in the molecular level. Z was designed for a 99% mirror finish look, wax gives you that just washed wet look, Sure they both look shiney but I've used both and I think I just might be a zaino user for life. My prefrence of shine, want to see myself first and then see a beautiful Silver SSEi.

Last coating session, put 3 on. Mind you goes on and off wax easier than wax. designed for multiple layers, the point IS last time was before winter, and I have to say it still has the Zshine to it still even when dirty, just reflects right back at me still.

I did clay bar first and followed the steps, now it'* just up keep. Z also goes on in the thinnest layer you can put on. Stuff is little thicker than water. wipes on and off quite easily.

Just trying to make a point that Zanio is different than meguires, or any kind of wax. I've never seen wax look THIS reflective before, few of my favorite zaino pics. Wax does have it'* advantages too as for type of shine, I just won't get into it now, call me biased






Now keep in mind that it takes some extra work to get there but multiple layers are needed to get that type of shin, if that isn't for you, just too much time and work or cost too much, or are just plan stubborn, enjoy using what you want to use. It'* your car, if you want to rub it with a diaper once and a while go for it, I know I do.

Is it bad when your car towels cost more and are nicer than what you use on your own body?

There is no one wax that is the best. It all comes down to personal preference and what you like to use. Personally I use Zaino because it works for me and I like the glass look that my car has after 5 to 6 layers of Z2. I would suggest that you purchase the wax report form Guru reports and make your decision. The report was money well spent for me. Here is the link to Guru reports.

PM me if you have any questions.

Wow!! That Zaino stuff looks amazing!! Kinda pricey considering the paint defects and dings my car has, but if she ever gets repainted, I'm sold!!

i urge you to try the nxt tech wax......i found it easier than the gold class.

but if you're happy with the gold class.......plus you probably have a 3/4 full bottle..........wait a while..

after i finish my bottles of 3 phase meguiars, mothers cleaner wax, zymol cleaner wax, Blue Coral Blue Poly One-Step Polish and Sealant, and nu finish, ..........i think i'll be in the market for some klasse all-in-one

My car shines just like that, but it'* the paint

Griots garage talks about putting some wax in their wash before you wax.... Interesting idea!

Click here to see my car with Maguiar'* Gold Class minutes after application... (at bottom of first page in thread)

http://bonnevilleclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=18263

I like the stuff, cause it goes on so easy, and comes off just as easy. No need for a buffer...it can be done by hand in an hour, with minimal effort (as compared to other waxes). It was my first time using it today, cost $10 bucks at O'Reiley'*, so if it lasts as long as other waxes, I guess I'm sold.
