Looks good for just AIO. My experience with AIO by itself has been about a month of durability. Let us know how long your layer goes for.

Nope...in the past I have only applied AIO & SG on our boat.

Hmm...really? My M3 had one coat of AIO applied to it in May '05 and it is still hold up like a champ.

does adding SG extend durability at all? i put two coats of SG (after putting on one coat of AIO) on my hood, trunk and roof and i want them to last.

It supposedly extends the protection to one year vs. approx 6 months with AIO. I apply AIO every Spring and Fall so just applying AIO works for me. I did apply SG to the wheels, exhaust tips, exterior mirrors, headlights, and tailights.

I've always heard Zaino is intensive = more labor than I want to put forth the effort. I'm getting old and at my age on a warm, sunny day I rather be (1) at the lake or (2) by a pool or (3) driving.

But the weather is turning and suppose to be raining all weekend.

I'm going to have to delay my initial Klasse treatment.

I'm a huge Klasse fan myself. Used to put in a lot of elbow grease and rotary buffer using the carnuba waxes.

I was shocked at how easy it was to apply and remove the AIO and SG.

its been 5 months, and the rain still beads up well. We just had a ton of snow the other day so now the car looks like crap with all the salt, but I expect car to shine after I wash it this weekend...

I use zaino on top of AIO and get good results.
