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.

i waxed it in the winter and it doesnt seem to look that good so i only wax fofo during the summer!!but i agree with you waxing is good but im still woking the bugs out getting it better each time,and it is winter so i see that useless to wax right now

I use all of my products from Griot's Garage. I use a clay bar, then Machine Polish 3 and 4 using a random orbital. I then us their Best of Show Wax with the orbital also. Great stuff.

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!
