    I use it on both my black vehicles. I think it works great. I like the shine, and it layers on to hide the scratches and swirls.

    I think it last alot longer than regular wax.

    In my personal opinion....
    No.


    It is a fine product though.
    A good polish (I like Prima products) and a good wax/sealant works very well.
    Most products will look GREAT with the right order used and the right machine.

    I detail cars on the side, I used Zaino on a customers white Corvette and white Truck and both looked so much different and better when completed. The Corvette especially, no kidding, looked a different shade of white. I would highly recommend the use of Zaino.

    Thats it I am going North across the border and getting the Camaro cleaned up White is not one of my favorite colors because it is hard to get a great shine like some of the darker colors, but those look great.

    my car with only one coat of Z5... that is the swirl remover... zaino is a lot of work but very rewarding... and like luos said any polish/wax/sealant will look good if done right... but i've never had close to the results i've had with zaino...

    Yes it is worth it. But if you get it take your time and follow the directions. Using the clay bar is a pain it the ass, but worth it in the long run. I had a white Z and after I zaino'd it it was a different looking car. GET IT.

    The thing about Zaino is it will outlast any wax out there, and achieve similiar visual results. Ive also noticed it helps keep bugs and other shit from bonding to your paint. Your car will clean up much better with a few coats of Zaino on it.

    Zaino has decent (average for sealant) protection.
    Zaino has great shine.
    Zaino has no depth. In my opinion.

    Which means on white and silver it works pretty well.
    I still prefer other products.

    I used Zaino for yrears on my 2000 Blk WS6 and like it alot I went from winning 1st place at about every car show to not even placing, then I looked real good and noiticed that the zaibo was leaving a white colored film on my paint, so I stopped using it and I now use the Mequirs, and the good thing is it's cheap and at Walmart so I can get it at anytime. And also I never use soap and water to wash my car it has only been wet like 3 times and that was from getting caught in the rain.
