they have some out standing products from what I hear.
I personally prefer other products over zaino and some products they have do have better alternatives.

Stuff's nice, but it takes too goddamn long.

What colour is your paint?

You don't need the entire kit. If you are not in a rush, you don't need zfx. Z2 or Z5 with Z6 and Z8(optional) is all you need. Two layers for the first time if to ensure coverage if you like. I have never had difficulty with zaino curing, but I still let all my sealants cure. That being said you need to be putting zaino on a polished up or well conditioned paint, otherwise it will just magnify your swirls.

Other alternatives, menzerna powerlock, 1z glanz.

I used Zaino before and while it is quite good, there are much better and possibly even cheaper alternatives available.

Zaino takes just way too long and turns detailing into a chore (at least in my experience.) I've had much better experiences overall with other products I've purchased from Ken @ Autowerekes but mind you, the price reflected the longevity of the products (with advance warning from Ken.)

If you're dead set on Zaino, go for it but I would personally recommend considering alternative options.

I have this stuff, but I haven't tried it yet. I'll try it when I get back from Hawaii

I've used Dodo Juice Supernatural as well, which is great too, way too much money though.

bilt hamber auto balm is a bitch to buff off if you dont buff it after application
victoria wax is made in squamish, so support BC wax lulz
i love menzerna powerlock if durability isnt as much of a biggie, easy on easy off super slick
i also love 1z glanz for its awesome gloss and its quite durable
i enjoy using my Sonax FE for rims but ceramic brake dust = p21s wheel gel better
Sonus ultrafx bestest clay bar
Lusso shampoo bestest car wash
