    Your statement is correct in regards to Z2 and Z5. ZPC and ZAIO are minor abrasives, which work to remove swirls, not fill them in.

    I've used it and like everything about except all the initial steps and time needed to have it look fabulous.

    I'd say if you like spending time polishing and waxing I say go for it but there's plenty of similar products that require way less steps and effort to get the same or better results.

    I used to use it religiously. Every other car wash I put more layers on. It's been 3 or 4 years since I got too lazy to wash and polish my car (I know, sacrilege). However, I still get compliments on my car's shine, even when it is filthy dirty (in my opinion).

    If I ever decide to get off my lazy behind, I would redo the initial steps and reapply the polish. This stuff is awesome. I like the fact that if you get it on your rubber window trim or any plastic pieces, it does not leave a white residue.

    You're right. I was more or less referring to their three main polishes. I haven't used ZPC and ZAIO, yet.

    What are the initial steps? Are you talking about preparation? All I've ever done before applying Zaino (either Z2 or Z5) is wash the car with dish washing soap then clay bar any area that I feel needs it.

    The steps I was referring to is all the new confusing products that apparently do the same thing and more. Each bottle has such a good description it's like the ultimate shine then the next one convinces you it's better. then it tells you they layer on each other for even more shine......

    I mean there's only z1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,2 0,21,22,23,24,25,26,27,28,29,30 and more....

    thought I posted this. But here's a pic after I used Dawn on the Hood but not on the door yet. This was after the car sat for 4 years while I built it up and had fun on my bikes. Least it didnt evaporate !

    You are making it harder than it really is. And your Z30 is quite an exaggeration

    All you need is Z2 and Z5 for polishes. It's all I use.

    Yes its designed to fill them, I guess I should have put that instead of putting quotations around removing. Id rather get rid of the swirls instead of having them come back in a couple washes. But Im just stating in my case it did a very poor job in doing so even after several hours and several tries. And my swirls were not terrible. People have used it with good results but in my case it did not and I switched to a better product. Thats just my opinion

    I will NEVER use Dawn on my paint again.
    Ever.

    It likely will never cause any damage, but that shit is harsh. Proper polish will do the removing of the old wax/polish/contaminants for you.
