I use a soft foam applicator to put the 845 on, you'd think you were putting olive oil on the paint, it shines so! Then after it hazes the removal is so easy and the shine is outrageous!

Use it on my 330ci and nothing sticks to it! Go through a rain shower, break through to the other side (dry) and in minutes you'd never know the car had been wet!

As stated above, a bottle lasts forever!

Wondered when someone was going to ask!!
Well, after having two 'Vettes (a 98 and a 2008)....its a 2011 Miata GT Hardtop convertible. That car is more fun at 60 MPH than either 'Vette was at 100.....not that I EVER went that fast, you understand....I do love the manual trans on the MX5. The shifter is only about 3 inches high and the throws are a flick of the wrist.
Its got to be the most fun you can have with 167 HP.....

Zaino!

Selecting a Zanio product and using it is complicated. Takes some reading on their website to figure it out. But once you learn, its easy to do, and WOW...

Its all I used on my Mustang and my F150. My mustang has won car shows and I must say I'm more impressed with Zaino than whatever other folks at the shows around me have been using.

Have you used Collinite? Is Zaino better or are you just posting your opinion?

Well, this is at least a new record number of posts before a Zaino-ite weighs in.

I do fail to see the attraction of a multi-step, expensive, time intensive product when you can get the kind of shine I got with 845.....

Let him defend Zaino before you bash it. Zaino is a great product, price to shine is what this post should be about.

What Zaino product are you using? Could be comparing apples to oranges here. I've never been too impressed with Zaino sealants, they tend to dull metal flake and pearls.

I've used everything from off the shelf waxes to high end stuff costing $100+ for 6 ounces. Each person,vehicle, color is going to respond to a wax, sealant, cleaner, etc... differently. I say find what works best for you and your vehicle and enjoy detailing.

Me personally, I use 845 for a sealant and Pinnacle carnuba liquid. Both applied with a Flex buffer. I could give a huge list when I do a full exterior detail on my personal truck but im on my phone.

Not bashing it at all, I don't know where you got that......I fail to see the attraction of a multi-step, complicated process ....and am entitled to that opinion every bit as much as anyone is allowed to say that they love Zaino....and I will not say that they are bashing me if they do....we all have opinions, and all I said in my OP was that you might want to try 845, that's all.
Its a great, fast and easy shine....and if it is as durable as some on here say it is ---- I will likely come back on here and defend it more strongly...we'll see.

It is interesting that Collinite has a warning on their cleaners that it is not reccomended for Darker Clear Coat finishes (see below from website).. It is on both the 840 & 126 products. Anyone have issues using it on dark colors?

No. 840
Pre-wax Cleaner
First step auto cleaner removes embedded contaminants to prep for follow-up protective wax.
Restores color and clarity to finishes effected by weathering
Prepares surface for follow-up wax shine and protection
Improves wax bond and staying power
Not recommended for dark clear coat finishes
