Zymol???

Anyone messed with the product name zymol?? i checked out their website and the cheapest wax is $50 upto the most expensive is $20,000 i was shocked!

If thats not a good product what is? I need a good wax for a new car.

Thanks!

They make some highend stuff, but you don't need to spend that much to get an amazing shine.

What color is your car? And new/used?

i use to be on the zymol bandwagon - stuff is overpriced. as there is much better stuff out there for less money, i do like zaino, klasse and menzerna products.

plus i lost all respect for zymol when they had that turtle wax crap rebranded as zymol.

if it was a dark colored car i would go with Poorboys Nattys Blue. you can certainly use it on a white car but it looks stunning on darker cars. You could also get the Nattys Red which i have not used but it should be just as good, and you can use it on white. I would read the detailing guide on detailedimage.com to get an idea of all the steps you could do to get your car looking its best. but if you just want a good quality wax then you cant go wrong with the Poorboys. For a step up i would go with the Dodo Juice Line.

I have 335i alpine white coupe, 2 mo old. It was initially detailed by the dealer prior to delivery with Zymol products. They really had done a great job, Having been impressed, I went a head and ordered some stuff from one of Zymol's on-line sites and got ripped off, they sent me some WalMart quality sponges and some cheap kitchen -quality towels plus two small Zymol products for 80$ !! I did complain, got their CEO on the telephone, got some of my money back, yet decided that was it for me with Zymol.
Having read the pro advice on this site ( very helpful tips), I re-detailed my car with Klasse products ( Clay - AIO-SG). I was very happy with the results.
It seems to me that Klasse /Zaino and other synthetic products are an excellent alternative to Zymol's.
Thanks
BP
