I know Zaino looks better on dark colors, but us Yellow's do pretty well, too.

No offense, but Zaino is not the best.
Just go to the Pebble Beach concours (I have) and ask Jay Leno or any person that really knows..........

So what did Jay say was the best? Or your own opinion, if different?

Jay said (he really did) Vintage™
Vintage Glaze is based on a custom formula developed for the 1947 Bentley Mark VI Cabriolet by Franay, winner of several "Best of Shows" in its debut year on the Concours circuit. Among the protective ingredients in Vintage are evergreen, honeydew, coconut, cantaloupe and sunflower oils. Vintage contains 61 percent Brazilian No. 1 White Carnauba by volume, the highest in any product designed to protect automotive finishes. Note: This container is refillable for life at no charge.

Contains White Carnauba Sap/Wax, Montan Evergreen Oil, Sunflower Oil, Cantaloupe Oil, Coconut Oil, Honeydew Extract, Propolis (derived from Bees), Cetyl Esters, Cetyl Cocoamide (derived from coconut oil).

$2000 for the cut crystal container.
They also have a wax for around $300 that the Baller uses.

How about posting some pictures of the finish so that we can see the difference between this product and Zaino. This is not a challenge, so please don’t flame me! Jay Leno’s opinion aside, I really want to use the best product for my new car and would like to see a quantifiable difference or a pros/cons list.

"Boy", sto16: Great picture! Cutting down on the light really brings out the reflection, very perceptive.

Not the greatest pic, but... if you look at the reflection of the sky in the driver's side window compared to just below it on the top of the driver's side door, the image as reflected by the body isn't much different than the image reflected by the glass... :D

Love that Zaino: it is easy to apply, and gives a great lasting shine.

Nice, and when you're done waxing the car, you can eat some as a snack.

I just don't see how all that stuff would out last the Zaino applications, as they seem to last for a very long time.
