Default Can you say ZANIO ROCKS!

Had time for 2 more layers of Zaino the other day, Probably have 5 layers on it now over the last 10 weeks or so, I'm amazed at the shine I'm getting on my Galaxy Silver paint. Keep in mind Zanio goes on and off very easy and it'* designed for multiple layers. It'* not a wax, it'* a sythetic polish that is slightly thicker than water. Wipe on top to bottom and buff right off by hand. Not needed to use circular motion, goes on and off VERY easy, almost can't see it going on, just slightly hazes. I think I'm a user for life!











The last shot is my favorite so far. Need to come up with something cool to take a reflection off of, any ideas?

I agree, the more coats I add the better it gets. Zaino really shines and the durability is second to none. There are some waxes that may give a shine that you may like better but it is a wax and the best waxes only last 2 months. Some only last two weeks.

Couldn't agree more, amazed how long it lasts, which is months and not 1-2 either even when the car is dirty and has water spots the mirror shine is still there. I love this stuff.

Old favorite pic.

I used the swirl remover once for the bottom coat but other wise it just wash and Z-2 and the spray after the inital dawn prep. Got the kit just because, doing my parents cars and they could use some swirl remover. You don't have to use their claybar either, but I just figured what the heck and order the kit instead of everything individualy.

Oh and after the second application, I tossed most of my old car wash stuff, no need for it now. Car wash milk crate is nice and orginazed now.

i always heard that zaino is all about reflections and durability. I would hear complaints about them not having any swirl remover-type products....but now i see that have 1.
does it work as well as the rest of the kit?

I've been a meg'* pro line fan lately (and really don't plan on changing anytime soon)
what i like about megs is price, and they have many different routes to achieve the results you want. Many different outcomes from similar polishes like one looks more wet, one looks more deep (great for dark cars), etc.

where zaino looks to me like its all or nothing

not saying the cars pictured don't look great....CUZ THEY LOOK AWESOME....but i think zaino is a tad overrated

theres my non zaino reflection......most likely this reflection was after the megs consumer line 3 phase system. not too bad for 18x,xxx miles?

not bashing on zaino in any way.....but you can get great reflections at less of a price.

only huge advantage i see with zaino is the durability....but i have no problem polishing/waxing my car often.

To me it is all about the durability of the product and the easy wash once the car gets dirty. The cicadas were very brutal this year but with Zaino it was a snap to clean them off the car.

The Z5 product is advertised as a swirl mark remover but most people feel that it does not perform as well as other products in this area.

Your car looks awesome and you are using a quality product so why change. I am with you in that I enjoy cleaning my car. I can do a total deep clean of the exterior and interior in 2 and a half hours which includes adding a coat of Zaino.

BTW, I use about 1/2 ounce of the Zaino product to do the entire car including the interior of the doors, under the trunk and under the hood.
