    I've had great results with the Turtle Wax brand ICE. The paste polish though not that liquid crap.

    For Rims. Mothers powerball mini and mothers aluminium polish (if aluminum rims of course). I just recently found out how great a job it does. Took the rims off one at a time and took them inside as to not sweat so much. I tell ya, they look a hell of a lot better now than they used to.

    Here are some blurry before/after/during pics.

    You can also use the powerball with the Mothers carnuba cleaner wax to get rid of oxidation on the third brake light.

    Out of the whole Zano collection which is the best? z5? And is it a liquid or a wax? And I read about the Mother's aluminium. I def want to try it on my ws6 rims.

    Zaino is a polish/sealant, not a wax.

    All the Zaino's work with one another. You can use them with one another, but typically you use Z5 then finish off with Z2.

    Ditto on that. I've been using Zaino since 2001 and have never looked back.
