I love the finish of my 2001 C320. I clay the car 2-3 times a year and I use Zymöl wax.

FYI: Unfortunately I do not have a garage, so my car is constantly subjected to the elements.

With that said, isn't this a great shine?

I have a C240 and the shine is good but not as good as other finishes despite constant waxing/polishing. The new MB paint is more dull.

Was just browsing around looking for waxing tips. I haven't given it a full wax yet. I've been afraid of swirl marks. I am getting closer. Here is a shot after a wash, and Meguiars Quick Detailing spray.

After owning 6 Porsches, a Viper, several late model Corvettes, 4 MBs and a new Lexus I have tried just about every wax I have ever saw advertised. Liquid Glass was my favorite for years. Then Zymol, NXT and numerous others I have forgotten about. Today I tried Zaino on my week old pearl white SC430.
Outstanding does not convey the results I achieved!

Try the product against ANYTHING you have tried before.

Sorry, I used to have a grey (I think they called it anthracite) '87 560SEL which I never got to look shiny --- so I ditched it after three years and got my current Midnight Blue. This is a non-waxed, non-clayed, non-polished, non-Scratchx'ed finish --- I can't wait until I dump $200 worth of products on it --- I bet you'll be able to get lost in the shine[;)]

Did some paint detailing yesterday and today the wife and I took a drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Gave me a chance to take some new pictures.
