    So I've seen a few forum members post good results from using Zaino's products...

    Their website (http://www.zainostore.com) seems to claim it's a "polish", which is a bit weird... Do polishes really need a 3 or 4 layer application? Isn't that usually a wax?

    Scott's Product Thread says it's a "Synthetic Wax"...

    So what is it? A polish or a wax?

    If it's a polish, then should I be using S100 on top of it?
    If it's a wax, is S100 better?

    I went and bought a midnight purple car, which is essentially black, so I need as much info as I can get on keeping this biatch looking good :(


    Thanks for your help guys :)

    zaino needs to be constantly reapplied from my understanding to get a deep deep shine

    never used it so im not sure

    If you want your dark-colored car to continue to look good, use the Final Polish and Clearkote's new carnuba wax - stay away from the Zaino. Too much work for not enough results, IMO.

    Zaino looks better on silvers and pearls than dark colors from what I hear on Autopia. I saw a black Viper at the Dallas Autorama a year ago and while it was very shiny, it wasn't very deep or wet looking. A lot of Zaino users who have dark cars will top Zainos with a carnuba like S100 or Pinnacle's Souveran.

    Zainos will last a long time but the initial application is time consuming and you do have to let the product dry completely before removing. Too much trouble for me to bother with.

    A lot of people swear by it though.
