    Then, respectfully... your "pro" is doing it wrong. My cars don't get garaged either and i have no problems getting months of protection and shine out of the Zaino. I get solid beading for multiple months. If I put a coat of Z2 or Z5 topped with ZCS I get an easy 7-8 months outside in harsh weather.

    There are few products that last as long as Zaino.

    Sadly, most people that criticize Zaino or say it doesn't work very well, don't use it properly.

    It looked better....but RejeX has lasted longer in my experiences.
    x2 on the rejex. I use it on everything even the aluminum on my bayboat. Its really good stuff.

    I've gotten 1 coat to last 6 months before. Additional coats only provide additional protection if the first coat wasn't applied fully and spots were missed.

    Then I guess I'm better at polishing a car than your 'pro' is.

    04 Cobra 'vert - M6 mysti
    02 WS6 coupe - A4 red

    I've just started using Klasse. Today is the first day I've driven one of them (the Cobra) in the rain. I guess I'll see how it does long term from this point. But so far I'm very happy with it. The All-in-One goes on and off quite easily. The Glaze requires a little more attention but is still pretty easy. I haven't used Zaino yet, I'm just now getting serious about my polishing/protecting and trying the synthetics. I'd like to try it in the future to do my own comparisons...

    Pro's don't typically care for Zaino as it takes away from their business.

    i the ones i talked with offered Zaino if you want...they said the owner of cars more or less tells them what they want on there cars unless its a car that needs alot of work

    the only problem i have with Zaino is on my cars that are outside 100% of the time...i still use it on my other cars without problems

    it might have something to do with where you live compared to others...just a guess, im in FL and we still see 90* days at this time of year

    Real high end pros are few and far between, having multiple ones in one town is nearly unheard of.. Sounds to me like they don't know what they're talking about. Not trying to beat a dead horse, but I have years and years of experience with this product and done literally hundreds of cars and never had a single person have issue with its durability. The environment in Florida is not to blame either. I know many real high end pros, who have very publicly know businesses and none have these issues with Zaino.

    It can be only one of two things... 1. Improper application (most likely). 2. A bad batch of Zaino.

    Hi
    I use Race Glaze 55 over here in the UK not sure if you can get it in the States?
    Very easy to use and gives great results.
    Check out some pics of my Trans Am and Cadillac my mates cars which I detail using it.
    Cheers
