    I've used Mothers and Zymol for the budget stuff. Zymol seemed to last a bit longer than Mothers, but both had great shine. This is on a black z28.

    I use Wizards paint servant you can get it.at any paint supply shop. I find it works better than any waxes from the local stores and lasts longer. It's only $10 also.

    What is paint servant? Or are you posting from a phone and its auto correcting?




    To the OP, Zaino is a great choice for a daily driver. P21S 100% looks great on NBM and isn't too expensive. Goes on and off easy.

    Blackfire Wet Diamond is about the same cost and looks amazing and lasts longer than the P21S 100%.

    Zaino is not a wax, but I still recommend it.

    If you use the Zaino polish, do you need to still use wax? Zaino's site says nothing about wax.

    Zaino is actually a sealant, not a polish. You CAN, but there isn't really any huge difference if you do.

    I know what it says on the bottle, been using the stuff for 10 years. I'm just saying its not a polish. Polishes by definition are abrassive, Zaino has no abrassives in it. The only products of theirs that do is ZPC and ZAIO. The Z2, Z5, ZCS are all sealants.

    What is the difference between a sealant and a wax? Is one better than the other?

    Thats a whole 'nother subject man. And there's a LOT on it. Do a search.

    But bottom line:

    Sealants last longer and reflect better

    Waxes don't last as long but give more depth/color.

    Zaino is great overall for any type of car. But if you have a garage queen that only comes out on nice days any wax will do.

    Pinnacle Souveran all the way. It is expensive but well worth it. You can do a sealer first if you want to and it is made for dark cars.
