    I'm a Zaino guy also but boy its hard to beat the initial shine / slickness of NXT.....

    Been wanting to try Turtle wax ice. Just don't want to buy a bottle of it and maybe be disappointed.............

    Polishes........3M 39009 for dark colors....3M 39002 for light colors. Menzerna Final polish is my favorite though.

    I have tried Meguires NXT and I think Zanio still gives a better shine. Just if it wouldn't rain two days after I fully detail it.

    I have been using a wax just for black cars called "Black Velvet" and it really works well for hiding scratches. Its also the easiest wax I ever used. Before this stuff I have used "ZYMOIL" for 15 years. Its great stuff also.

    I currently use NXT, but going to order some Zaino stuff and go with them from now on... what pisses me off with NXT is like a month later the stuff is gone. I have read that Zaino is very durable... I don't want to have to be applying stuff every month.

    I have a couple of waxes like Meguiars #26, and Victoria Concours Wax
    Primarily, I favor sealant over wax because sealants are much more durable
    I use or have JW AJ Trigger, WG Deep Gloss Sealant, RejeX, Z5, and Prima Epic
    I like them all
    I want to try some Collinite Waxes. They're probably the king in durability for both sealant and waxes

    If you've ever seen reviews from people that have used it, they all claim 9-12 months durability from Collinite waxes. You're right, when you haven't used it, you need to state that is probable that it lasts that long, and it's in my opinion very tough for any wax or sealant to beat that kind of durability...
