I use Zaino. Biggest problem with it is trying to put the car cover on by myself. The car is so slippery I look like a stooges skit. I lay it on the car and it slides right off.
I highly recommend Zaino.

Built to be driven. The mission statement for the build was - build a comfortable and fun long distance driving machine that is capable of spirited street driving and the occasional track outing.
Started using NxT 2 Next Gen then switched to Zaino now (don't laugh) use Turtle Wax Ice. Easiest to apply, has same shine as the others but seems to last longer. Have used these on a Dark Blue now Black colored cars.
I bought some Zaino wax because of the posts in this thread. I did 2 coats today in a little over 2 1/2 hours, the total working time was probably less than 40 minutes. It is by far the easiest wax to remove that I have ever used. It is really cloudy here today so I have not pulled it out of the garage to look at it in the sun but in the garage it looks like a mirror. If it holds up well I will never use another wax. I put 1 coat on my sons dark blue 528i about a month ago and it still looks great. I cant imagine what 3 coats would look like on that dark blue paint.

Up until last week, I had only used Zaino on my new paint. After four go-rounds, it really shined, but had the "dipped in plastic" look some have commented on. I decided to top it with some high end Meguires carnuba wax. Now it is perfect! What a great shine.
Collinite 845 Insulator Wax...sounds odd, but this stuff goes on thin & easy, virtually no residue, and lasts a LONG time (especially on the daily drivers that sit outside). Never seen in a local store, but easy to order off vendors online / eBay.
Used Zaino in the past...also extremely long lasting, but frankly too much of a PITA with the multi-product application, activators, running out of one product while still having a lot of another, etc.
I used the stuff for 10 years until one day at Carlisle I'm looking at a friend's car and it was like glass with a deep, rich sheen. He used Adams. Suggested I try a bottle and there was no turning back. It's as easy to use as Zaino, leaves no dust like Zaino but the shine is deeper and richer. I use the machine wax, detail spray and the polish. Zaino's great stuff but Adam's is better, check it out. Sorry Sal!
