You wanna hear something real funny? I know a place that uses that on people's vehicles :lol: :lol:
What is even more funny the customers believe in the product & claims products like Auto Glym too expensive because polish is polish, period!

I've been through many brands autoglym, meguiars, mothers, dodo juice. Even the high end stuff xymol.

They each have their strengths...except the xymol. It is sheit! The wax will not even last a day before it gets burnt off.

IMHO autoglym has the best balance of shine and practicality. But their stuff ain't cheap.

Autoglym clay
Then autoglym hd cleanse
Then autoglym hd wax 2 layers

Shine is all about the carnuba percentage and the hd wax is very high. Natural wax will beat out synthetics anyday but will never last as long

If you really want a concourse finish, you can top it off with meguiars no. 7 glaze. That stuff is great but it runs straight off in the heat and rain. To lock it in I apply another layer of hd wax over it

All products are good but its all about product knowledge and technique,, zymol is a very good product i have used it before,,, i would love to continue using it but it get just as good or even better result with the system i presently use.

I can take the regular products and have a car looking much better than when it came from the showroom.

In Detailing its 40% product and 60% technique and knowledge..

Knowledge and patience is what most lack!

Paparazzi when you are ready you to have your vehicle professional done let me know..

If you are looking for a concourse finish there are a lot more steps than claying, polishing and waxing

Dedicated waxing is a MUST if you want to keep your vehicle looking its best !!!!! for our CLIMATE you should wax your car for a minimum once a month!!!

Wash and wax is ok to use between your wax sessions.!!! you should also use a quick detailer in between your wax sessions!!!

I use a foam pad to apply and micro fiber cloth to remove. Karim can hook you up with cloths and pads. I am a firm believer in Autoglym after Karim introduced the product to me. Easiest and most effective polish I've ever used. (Super Resin and Glass) Upkeep by washing car with Shampoo Conditioner.

Try folding the cloth in 4 equal parts and pull out the tag. Try it again and let me know if you still seeing the circles scratches. Make and use a clean Microfiber eh.. if it fall on the ground wash it before you use it.!!!

I use either Meguiars NXT 2.0 or Griots BoS Wax.

Polishes include Mothers Pre-Wax Cleaner and Autoglym Super Resin Polish (depends on the application it's being used on).

Polishes are applied with the Meguiars yellow Foam pads. Buffed off with Mothers polish removal microfibres.

Waxes applied using Griots red foam pad (by hand) and buffed off with the soft microfibres.

For claying, I use Meguiars Smooth Surface Clay kit.
