Hi,

Does Zaino actually make the car look a lot shinier/deeper when it is brand new? I tried putting one coat of Z-5 and 3 coats of Z-2 on and cannot tell the difference. So I'm wondering if Zaino only makes a big difference on faded paint.

BTW - My car is a Titanium Silver M3. Maybe it doesn't show up as well on lighter colors?

Thanks!

The problem you're having is why I decided to go with Jet Black.

TiAg is great, but you can Zaino it until your hands bleed, and it'll look nice, but not as nice as a darker color.

Has anyone else had experience with Zaino on a new Titanium Silver M3? Can you notice a difference after applying several coats of Zaino? or does it look the same? I'm pretty sure I followed the directions exactly when applying it so I don't think I did it wrong. Also...does anyone have a pic of their TiAg M3 after Zaino? Thanks!

Here's a few pics of my TiAg, does it look too dull for the Zaino to have been put on properly?

Update: The part where you upload pics doesn't seem to work right now! :(

A really good thing to do after you just wax your car with Zaino is to mist you car with water. Then dry it off with the towel, the water sets that wax in real good and leaves a glass shine.

lol!!! funny that you mention that. i zaino'ed my car a few weeks ago and drove it a couple of days later. what do you know? it starts to sprinkle a bit and i get really upset thinking all my hard work down the drain. i drive home and immediately wipe down my car with a clean dry towel. nowadays, my car looks better than when i just zaino'ed it! i was just thinking to myself the other day, "hmm, my car looks better now after it rained than when i just waxed it..."
