I love Zymol.
I got a pile of bottles at a sale.
And i love the product.
Especially the nice smell.
Way easier than paste waxes too.

Just got my Finish Kare 1000p in yesterday, applied a thin coat and I have to say how easy this stuff was to work with. Of course you have to be careful around trim but that's ok. The coat is slick to the touch, and I noticed a drastic difference in bug marks on the front of the car from driving down the highway. Stuff was worth the money!
