Default SUPER wax???

Sooo... I'm looking for a good wax for my car, I've decided to go with DODO Juice but am possibly rethinking it pending this!! http://www.zymol.com/zymolvintageglaze22oz.aspx from what I've read it is one of the best waxes out there. It is free refills for life so.. Now I'm not willing to spend $2,000 plus for wax unless I can get say 200-300 people willing to go in on it. Meaning free refills for life for those 200+people and a way cheaper product. Seems like a good idea unless they put a limit on it. Any thoughts??

why not just buy the regular zymol stuff? This seems insanely expensive unless you own a detail shop.

why dont you spend 15 dollars on some collinite 845 and call it a day
nuff said 15 dollars will cover 10 cars.
1.50 a car, you win either way

mathematically, you have one car, one bottle of collinite= 10 car waxes
lets say over the course of the year you wax your car 3 times a year... the most you probably will need to in a calendar year with the strength of this wax
one bottle should last 3 years,

lets say you live to be 90,... thats 30 bottles in a lifetime

30 bottles times 15.00= $450
youve saved $1500

congratulations
your car is a subaru, not a mclaren f1

just my $.02

+1 1z Einzett Glanz
I just picked up a bottle of this. Wow is this stuff amazing. Makes your paint feel buttery smooth
And also the application process is so easy. Cuts down time spent waxing quite a bit.

^lol. i first did mother's carnauba then meguiar's (easier to apply/remove) and now i'm down to the spray wax. trust me, ANY wax on a car will prolong the longevity of the paint, independent of brand. as mentioned, unless you're entering these cars in shows where high power lights are going to be shining on them, you probably won't notice a difference.

edit: i just noticed what car you have. seriously, you're trying to hit the nail with a runaway train

….stop one moment and think about it. Do you honestly believe you are the only one to think of this type of scam? Zymol won’t hesitate to cut off your “free refills” if they suspect foul play. Heck, I have even seen them cut off detailers once they found out they were using their wax for their business.

There are perfectly good examples above of products that work well that can be acquired for much less money (and much less hassle). What exactly are you looking for in a sealant/wax? When you say that you believe Zymol is one of the “best” waxes out there, what do you think makes it the “best”? There are other high end waxes available that are a fraction of the price (think ~$100 - $200) but will (arguably) provide similar results. Regardless, (IMO/IME) I would wager that most (including yourself) would not even be able to tell me which was the more expensive wax if I used Zymol and something like WG Fuzion I might pull from my own cabinet. In reality, your most stunning results will come from prep.

kean is right, from what i hear your limited to how many refills you can get within a year.

also, i have no personal experience with it but i hear Dodo juice isnt what some people made it out to be.

I dont doubt its good stuff, it probably and most likely is. It definitely not snake oil...... but why drop that kind of money regardless of what kind of car it is when their are some really great products on the market.

Im no professional, but i have been detailing cars for freinds and family for over 15 years, i have tried alot of product, i have never found that one "wonder product". A beautiful finnish comes from hard work, not throwing expensive products at a car. But you are right it is all relative. I say get it, and let us know how it works, and when you are done with it you can keep candy in the box for the holidays!

....well, I certainly wasn't implying that I would buy or even have a car/situation where I could justify using it. However, there is certainly a market for these types of products and there are those who apparently have a discerning eye that can tell the difference. If they like what the product has to offer in regard to its characteristics (and can afford such indulgences), more power to them.

way to much money for a wax. even if they are using 60% pure carnuba. i would personally rather kick myself in the balls and slam my head in a door then throw money at that.
