    Same here. I have tried most all of the others over 30yrs, and none compare to Zaino. I have not washed my car with soap and water for over a year. Just wipe it down with the detail spray.
    It may cost more but you don't use very much. I use about 2oz to do my car with two coats.
    And their tire dressing is the best also. It does not turn the tires brown over time.

    I haven't tried it yet, but a friend of mine swears by Adams. He is very particular about his waxes and has shelves full of different brands and he says that the Adams products are the best. I have to give them a shot.

    Been using Zaino for years with great results. When it comes to paint correction, IMO you can't beat a dual action (DA) polisher and Meguires products (i.e., clay bar, M105 ultra cut compound, M205 ultra cleaner/polish and M21 synthetic sealer). I'm getting lazy with age, so I've been going with the DA polisher vs. working by hand. When you apply product correctly with a DA polisher, removing it with a quality mirco-fiber towel is a snap and the end product looks out of this world. Yeah, the initial investment in a good DA, pads, product, etc. is not cheap, but the results and time savings makes it well worth it in the end.

    I'm going to look into the meguires compounds soon. The paint on my 78 TA is original and although it is old and starting to fade, I brought a few panels back with 3M perfect it 2 compound. I think a more aggressive compound would make it better. I'm not going to paint it anytime soon so I want to protect it the best I can for now.

    Adam's is the best polish and wax system I've used. Check out Blingmaster for your forged wheels, then follow it up with Flitz wax...keeps billet shining for quite a while.

    For me I use Wizzards wax then to really make it shine use Mist & Shine with micro fiber cloth. Most waxes I have used come off in the winter with the salt this stuff seems to last longer. You can find it at the car shows.

    For those more interested in REAL DETAILING KNOWLEDGE..............and not the cheapest product...........suggest you check out the forums and reviews at AND

    MEGUIARS has a huge product line. You cant review their name without specifying WHAT product you do or dont like............such as has been done above by those in the know.

    Not one person has mentioned 303 Protectant for example which far and away
    is the best UV inhibitor and vinyl/plastic/rubber protectant.
