Just curious about which kind of wax do you people use, and why?
I'm a Blitz Wax guy. It is a carnuba wax and doesn't last as long as waxes with polymers, but I prefer the deep shine it provides.

Zymol Japon (in my fridge), deep shine (lasts for a month or so)

or for a quickie, NXT-2.0 (longer lasting, cheap)

I usually do Poor Boys 2.5 polish first and some EX-P Sealant.

ZAINO Z-5 PRO Show Car Polish

Easy on/off, and superior protection, appearance.

I have used Optimum, Pinnacle Souveran, P21S, S100, Trade Secret, the list goes on.. Zaino is the overall best value.

I'm riding on 4 coats of Z5 Pro that I applied in October. Rain, Dirt, Salt, seems to shed right off.

Don't care for Zaino products. I use optimum, Meguirs, Poor Boys, Sonus, P21, Klasse....depends what type of shine I'm looking for and what time of year it is.

I do a complete detailing job on my cars about once every 6 months or so including paint correction and sealant.

New product I'm liking a lot now is Jeffs werkstatt :thumb:

Meguiars or Mothers. I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Mothers yet.

The intial look & ease of application blows you away. I just didn't think it was as durable as I had read. (3-4 weeks for me vs. the 2 months some claim).


I just tried some Collinite #845.... I must admit I was swayed. Easy on/off, great shine, durability as good as anything on the market.

My local Harbor Freight had it for $12.99 a bottle, or you can get it online for $14.95-16oz bottle.


My next purchase will be some Zaino Z8 spray sealant. I haven't tried it yet, might pick up the Z-16 tire gel also...

Zaino is quite popular on the car forums.

My favorite wax is whatever <they(edited)> @ the detail shop. Always looks good to me.:)

Super DoubleCoat Auto Wax #476 is a paste wax that behaves like a paint sealant. One application provides up to a year of protection through any and all weather conditions. It provides a clear barrier against rain, salt, pollution, bugs, the sun, and all the typical road grime.

Its incredible durability is matched only by a few select paint sealants on the market, yet Super DoubleCoat Auto Wax #476 is a wax. If you enjoy the application and appearance of a carnauba wax but want the durability more typical of a sealant, Super DoubleCoat Auto Wax #476 is the best of both worlds.


It is a hard/thick wax, not a breeze to apply/take off, but a indestructible coating is worth the effort...
