Well I can't get Zaino in South Africa, to my knowledge.
Apart from Zaino , what off the shelf product would you recommend ?

It depends on which one you get. I used the polymer sealant that I picked up at a paint shop, in conjunction with the overspray removal clay bar, on the truck, motorcycle, and van that was the trade-in for the E90. IT worked great, but did leave a lot of white mess. To its testament, it took quite a bit of Dawn washing before the wtaer didn't bead and I could apply the Zaino.
When I get home, I will look at the product number, but I think it was 34.

I use the professional formula of the liquid retail version. I swear by their product line.
