I ONLY use McGuire products on my 3 190E`s.

One metalic silver, other two are white.

Have tried other products before I have swithed to McGuire`s. Will not use anything else untill proven better than McGuire Products (Will not be easy finding anything better).

Of all the "systems" and products I have tried over the years, I have found nothing to come even close to Zaino in performance, durability and ease of use.

I use 3 step Maguires and takes so much out of you. My car's black so I have to be extra diligent when waxing No one has commented on the shine so I gues I must be doing something wrong.

Thumbs up Meguiars

Ihave used the Meguiars system on my cars for at least 7 years; I was apprehensive abut using the random orbital polisher but---it simply is excellent. And no danger to the car. The clean-polish-wax looks even better when you add the glaze step to it. I have won concours with my SL500, Alfa and Porsche, and all comment on my finishes.
Additionally, I have dealt with few companies that have the customer service committment and integrity of Meguiars. They are simply outstanding.
By the way, I have about $200 worth of Zymol products gathering dust in my cabinet--anyone interested?

Some time ago a friend turned me on to 3M wax. It is very good stuff. Does not cause anything on the car to turn white like cleaner waxes. There are limitations. The wax is nothing but wax, no cleaners or abrasives in it. So if your paint needs some help your going to need to do that first. You also need to buy it from suppliers, stores don't sell it. I believe it is about $20.00 per can. It has been awhile since I bought it. You will like this stuff. I am picky and it is the only thing I use.

It's good, but leaves a lot to be desired.

Your right, it won't clean likecleaner waxes, etc. But it seems to hold on well and is easy to work with. I like easy!
