Default Used Zymol polish for the first time...

I had heard good things about it, so I decided to give Zymol a try this weekend.
The first thing you'll notice is the smell - it smells like a combo of bananas and suntan lotion. It was easy to put on, and just as easy to remove.

It did a really good job with swirl marks and minor scratches. I'm actually hard pressed to find a few scratches that I know where there prior to applying Zymol.

I'm sure there are better waxes/polishes out there, but Zymol seemed to really bring out the shine.

I think I have some of that Zymol stuff, it's blue and smells so good that I'm tempted to eat some. It makes my 7-year old FL sun baked car look nice and shiny, but bigger scratches and imperfections are still noticeable. Seems to be pretty good stuff for the price. I'm not paying $50 for a 3 oz. jar of wax, like some of the nuts here.

Looks very nice. I use the Zymol polish, too. Maybe I should try some of the fancier solutions, but it does a decent job, indeed. I think the most important thing is to treat and care for the paint on a regular basis. My impression is that the Subaru paint is not the "best" around, so in that regard it probably needs a bit more TLC than some paints. All I know is that the car looks sooo good when its had a fresh cleaning and waxing!

I heard of a Zymol wax that runs in the neighborhood of $1300 a bottle.

This dude I know says that it totally brings out the blue in his Black wagon.

I guess this sounds strange but what you are talking about is the Zymol Estate Glaze Vintage that goes for a mere MSRP of 1650.00 for 2 oz. If you were to buy it online, they have a great deal at 1402.50 !!!

Free lifetime refills
