For the spring and summer I use Menzerna FP, 3M Imperial machine glaze and top it off with One Grand Blitz. In the fall and winter I apply Zaino since I would not be able to wash it as frequently. Also I am trying to finish all my other products so I can stick with Zaino all year round

Are you sure about that? Looks like from the voting only about 38% use Zaino.

I have used many waxes. The two I like the best, and they only two I have tried on my 325 are:
PS21
Collinite #845

I just did the car with PS21 for the first time yesterday. Very, Very nice shine and easy to work with. A little better then Collinite. We shall see how it is on durability. I park at the airport often. Jet exhaust is very acidic and some waxes just don't last long. The Collinite has been one of the better in durability and ease of application.

I use Mothers Reflections topped with Collinite 845. I agree with P2 on the Collinite as far as durability and ease of application. On TiAg it gives a very good look too.
