rims are too big and the screens in what used to be the back seat are stupid - so are the 3 screens for the passenger. Other than that, it's pretty sweet. WCC pretty much sucks, but they did a decent job here. No rear view mirror or visors?

That's what I was going to say. The speakers in the doors are dumb too. They took out the leather and re-upulostered the seats and doors. Not crazy about that.

But no top is pretty sweet.

I was using using meguiars and Zymol for a awhile and thought zaino's price was a little steep. I finally broke down and decided to get the Zaino total Car Kit for $85.

The kit came with everything you need. If you don't want to go the kit route, you'll need the ZFX accelerator, the Z-1 and Z-2 and Z-5. You'll also want the clay bar. All of these separately will cost around $80 anyways so I would just get the kit as this comes with a bottle of car wash soap, the gloss enhancer spray, and extra applicators.

The zaino process is time intensive tho.... If I recall you have to wash the car with regular dawn dish detergent to strip it of any way. Then you have to run the clay bar all over the car to remove bugs, tar and other stuff on the paint. Then you wash it again. Then you apply the Z-1 wax polish. Buff it. Then you apply the Z-5 polish. Buff. Then you can apply the gloss enhancer. After you're finished you'll be an expert like the karate kid.

It sounds expensive and alot of work, but apply/use much less wax w/ Zaino than I normally did when I used the Meguires line. I bought my kit last winter and I waxed my 4 cars and I still have plenty of wax leftover in that kit. The mirror shine is awesome; especially on darker colors.

Good luck keeping that black car clean.

I use Meguire's NXT Wax which is a synthetic wax and is supposed to last 8-12 weeks.

Zaino just has too many steps for me. And you do not need to be polishing your car yet.

Get a good wax on ASAP.

Use Meguires Quick Detailer in between NXT applications.

I have used Mothers multistep previously but now I use Zaino. Actually once you start using Zaino its alot easier to keep the car clean and then reapply a fresh coat, its lasts very well. Its not that expensive because you only use a very small amount.

Oh and sweet ride!

Yes. It's as good as they say.

In addition to directly from them, there are regional distributors (1-2 per state, usually) and you can buy from them. I live fairly close to the guy in Phoenix. I just drive over when I need something.

About to place an order for the wax, but I can't make up my mind.

Klasse Concours Kit: $45, You get the all-in-one and the sealant glaze plus two pads and two cloths.

Zaino Kit: $85
Z-2 Show Car Polish for Clear Coated Car Finishes
Z-5 Show Car Polish for Swirl Marks and Fine Scratches
Z-6 Ultra Clean Gloss Enhancer Spray
Z-7 Show Car Wash
Z-18 ClayBar
& TWO Zaino Custom Polish Applicator for FREE!

So with Zaino, I get a gloss enhancer spray, some car wash and a claybar compared to Klasse. But it costs $40 more.

I've used Zaino for a couple of years on my cars . I love it plus it lasts a long time ! The application method might be a little time consuming but it's worth it ! One thing I love about Zaino as well is you just keep adding coats of polish and it looks better and better with every coat ! Th eonly thing about it I dislike is after applying the the polish it takes a while to dry before you wipe it off .

klasse aio is definately the easiest thing to install, and it lasts a long time. klasse sg is a little more finicky than the aio.

if you want a very nice shine, use a few coats of aio, followed by a few coats of sg, and a few more coats of p21s.

Nope, AWD ones just started being made. I haven't seen one at the dealer yet.
