I've used all but Zaino.. I know if I use Zaino I'll spend hundreds of dollars on supplies every time I wax my car :p

I do like Zymol, it's probably what I'll use before winter (oh wait crap, it's snowing right now, too late :p )

I use turtle wax ice between waxings because it's so darn easy to apply.

Dont need to spend much.
I bought a bottle of Z5 and Z2.
I used dish fluid to wash the car.
Chamois to dry.
Wax applicator (comes free with the Z5/Z2).
Microfiber cloth for the finishing touches.

Each bottle should last you 14-18 applications.

I've used Zymol for years and has seen it work wonders on some of the cars we've had. Especially the 82 Lancia Zagato my dad had for a while. When we bought it, it was so oxidized that it looked pink. After a little bit of cleaning and elbow grease, it was bright red again.

If I'm going step by step from clay to finish, I used all Meguiars stuff on the Honda. I guess it all depends on what is on the shelf, and how much I want to do.

that doesnt matter if you wax it every month, as i do. for the price difference, i can wax 4x more times than the others

That's the difference between you and me.

I don't have time to wax my car monthly, so I'll pay more for the product that I only have to use once.

Furthermore, even if you did it monthly, the Zaino holds up better to water and such as well.
