Word. Also had great experiences with their clay bar before it dried out, but that's all due to my own dumb ass.

zaino isn't really a wax, it is a sealant.

it is generally agreed that p21s is the best wax. you can pick it up at harley dealers.

Plain old Turtle Wax.

The whole Zaino packages has always been out of my price range and my cars won't look good either way as they both are requiring paint jobs.

I use P21S, but once that is gone, I'm switching to Zymol.

Also using any tools (i.e. buffers) besides your own hands is bad

Meguiar's is the only line of products I use on my car. Try the brand new Nxt Generation Wax from them. My paint has never been so smooth or so deep of a black. It has additives in it to remove/cover up fine scratches, to restore older paint, and to deepen the shine of newer paint. I've never really liked waxing becuz it's so long and tedious, but this wax comes off like none other. And, it leaves no dust that you have to wipe off later. I swear by it. It's the only domestic product that ever touches my car. Meguiar's all the way for me.

i just used meguiar's today and im happy yet not satisfied. it was way to sensitive to how much you put on, so in places where i must have put too much i got swirls. any advise on how to get them out? they arent bad, you cant notice them from 3 feet and further away.

besides that, the shine is amazing.

The best thing to do would be check out pep boys or some other place and ask them for a car soap that would take the wax off of your car.

After you wash it re-wax your car. I suggest Zymol wax and car care products.

For washing, prewaxing, and waxing I love Zymol products.

I use Eagle 1 tire dressing (it is the least oily tire dressing I could find). And Armorall cleaner for the interior dash and doors etc.

I have tried numerous other brands and have found these to produce the best results (IMO).

But then again what do I know, I'm only a professional detailer?
