    With the advent of the internet and information at your fingertips, you simply cannot sit on the sideline anymore if you produce automotive car care products. You must continue to improve or you will fall to the wayside and get run over.

    I`m sorry to hear that partner.....



    Your exactly right in saying you may not know what your missing. Because unless you actually try the product and see the results for yourself, you`ll never know....



    The same goes for all the rest of the products mentioned in this forum.



    Silk, give Zanio a try and post your personal test results here. Try some Z5p and/or Z2p with zfx on your personal auto and see for yourself......



    You just may be pleasently surprised.....:xyxthumbs



    Good luck....

    It is in a different league, as its in a different product catagory.



    The fact that there are alot of people that like a product really has no effect on what a product does or what was made to do.



    I am sure that Mr wannafbody did not make his statement to insult a product or those that use it.

    Yes sir! I was just reading about the 600hp rating of the 08 viper that will be out in mid 07. If there was not a 505hp Z06, would I be reading about the 600hp viper?

    Hate to throw this into this discusson tread, but here goes... Xzilon is also a "wipe on and leave alone" sealant, plus can be applied over any other LSP. I am not endorsing this product, just thought I`d bring it up as a product that seems to have at least a couple of the characteristics of CS that we`re raving about.



    This is based on my understanding of the product from speaking with Xzilon tech service and from speaking with service managers and general managers at auto dealers. Since this product is sold and applied only through dealerships it is hard to get real good data on it...



    There isn`t any tech or spec data on their website, Xzilon, but there is a sales oriented mp4 that you can watch about the product that states things like never needs to be reapplied, withstands surface temps upto 400 deg, 5 year warranty, etc. Really hoaky propaganda stuff and is geared for the new car buyer to try to close them on spending hundreds of dollars for this stuff. Their server seems to be real slow, so opening or downloading the 33 meg file for me was painfully slow...

    I have tested the products, and must stress again that although AW is a nice product, it is a completely different product from CS. CS is a sealant with durability well beyond 6 months, and AW is a spray sealant/booster. AW is the same category of Z8; however, is not in that of CS.

(I think you even needed mineral spirits to remove it) There were late night infomercials with a little guy with an English accent saying to put it over junk yard hoods and everything. Anyway- I`m an avid Zaino user and look forward to the new products but I have to admit the first time I heard clear liquid (clear seal) that does not need to be buffed I thought of that Blue Corral infomercial stuff!! Haha!


    Bill D knew all about this stuff and mentioned it at least one thread...but he seems to be incognito lately...

    WOW-real world durability of 6 plus months is quite impressive. Did you test the durability of ZAIO as a standalone product?

    Apparently not anymore, it`s purportedly being discontinued. I guess perhaps we now know the reason for that.

    Supercharged Z06, 650 hp. $100,000 or so according to Road & Track...which in the same issue tests the Bugatti Veyron, which rips off a 10.2 @ 142 mph 1/4 mile!

    Yes, and currently it is 1.5 months strong on my sisters car, neighbors car, and family friends vehicle. I received the ZAIO later than the C.S. so I do not as many months of testing with the AIO. I am very impressed with it because it is very versatile being able to work by hand, or if you prefer pc, it can do that too. It works great for sprucing up clients cars that do not want the full detail. I will report back regularly with durability.

    Clearly a hard sell company with no credibility. At least Zaino has an established track record.
