yup, still rocking my Zaino Z2 and z5. Mostly cause I don't have money to burn on this kinda stuff anymore but also cause a little zaino goes a long, long, long way. I think I've been using it for over 2 years now and I'm not even 1/2 way thru my supply.

Paint prep is KEY. It lasts a long time if prepped right.

I was looking for a good carnauba to put on top of the zaino to really REALLY shine but determined it wouldn't be worth the time/effort being that I now have a red car instead of my old black car.

I use a DA polisher, so my products of choice are Meguiar's M205 Ultra Finish Polish followed up with M21 Synthetic Sealant 2.0. The best hand application product that found was Zaino.

I have been using zymol for like 10 yrs it is the best thing for the money i have found. Makes a slick finish and looks really deep.

On my old black car I topped Zaino with wax to give it better shine.

But for protection and durability, Zaino is hard to beat. Water is still beading up today on my daily driver after over 6 months. Zaino managed to last through a Minnesota winter.

I bought the Focus in late August. I did a single quick coat of Zaino All-In-One and followed by a single coat of Zaino Z5. No other prep work like clay barring or anything because I was too lazy.

Here's pictures from mid-January (still beading strong):
