    Car Wax

    With the constant sun and heat this summer I have been wondering whether there are waxes formulated for summer use and others better suited for winter. I have been using Collinite #845 for a long time, probably over 10 years now and am pretty satisfied with it. I wax 2X/yr. Just trying to find out what others use- if somebody has a really good recommendation or switches waxes depending on the season I'd like to try that out.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Re: Car Wax

    First, I just started using a PC 7424xp and it did a great job in removing the swirls on my black car.

    I've had good luck with the following

    Zaino Z2 and Z5 on current car and last couple

    Klasse AIO topped with Pinnacle Souveran

    P21s-Just started trying this out on my wifes new black RDX

    The main reason I've stuck with Zaino is because of durability. I've heard that P21s doesn't last long. I think they all look good.

    Never heard of any of those but I'll Google them. Thanks.

    I'd try out the Zaino. Just keep in mind that you have to use very little actual product. Before you put it on you'll want to wash your car with Dawn, which will remove all the wax you currently have on your car. If you have some bad spots you may also want to consider using a clay bar first to clean it up.

    Here are some pics I took after Zaino
