Zaino is good if you like spending a lot of money to have your car look like saran wrap.

Dodo Juice...too much for me to even bother with.

Autoglym HD is actually pretty good.

I hear lots of good things about Collinite too. I wouldn't mind trying some Zymol Carbon either.

I have tons of Meguiar's though. That's about 95% of what I use.

I use Zaino.

The older formulas of Zaino had the issue with the saran wrap effect. The newer stuff is a lot better especially when you combine it with the Z8 Grand Finale Spray.

That is good that Zaino fixed that problem! I never heard anything about an "updated" product.

What's the Autoglym "for dark cars?" I don't follow AG too much as it is a bit harder to get a hold of around here.

I don't wax the exterior since Ziebart treats it with Diamond Gloss but I do use Mopar wax around the doors and under the hood where Ziebart fears to tread.

Meguiar gold class or Turtle ICE is what I'm using now. After every car wash I just spray some Turtle ICE detailer and wipe it off.

I know people who use ICE on trim, since it doesn't turn it white. You'll have to use the spray much more often that a regular wax.

It probably works alright. Turtle Wax quality, IMO, has sort of dropped off anymore. For example, their rubbing and polishing compound. I won't even use that junk on my 25 year old truck. It makes the paint look like crap on there. I've seen what that stuff will do to BC/CC paints. If it works for you though, use it. That's the important part. Find what works for you, and using it. Try it out! Smile

I use the ICE spray on my satin black parts of the car, works very well to keep them nice and deep black.

I have used Autoglym Super Polish Resin and Autoglym Rapid Detailer.
Tomorrow I plan to buy Autoglym Gold, apply on the top of SPR.

Have anybody tried Collinite #476S?
