Ordered my first Zaino products today. This is an old thread, but there are new products. I went with Z-AIO all-in-one, plus Z-CS clear seal, for my new every-day Altima. I'll keep you posted. I have never really worked hard on car care before, so this is my first venture into anything other than cheap wax. Even so, Zaino is not THAT expensive. For an every-day car, you're not going to spend $100 a year, aside from DIY car wash costs.
UPDATE: Zaino was ordered Sunday night, received Thursday in upstate NY. On Friday I was able to wash (with Dawn dishwashing liquid as Zaino recommends), then polish/buff with Z-AIO, and finally Z-CS. I didn't finish until after dark in the garage, so I'll take a photo and post in the daylight. My main comment is that the end result depends on the preparation. You have to get the car really clean and wipe off any water spots or leftover bug splatters, etc. Including drying time when I could eat dinner, I spent about 5 hours, and that's just for an every-day car. The daylight will really tell, but so far the car looks great and has a silky feel.
UPDATE 10/4/14: I put the photo in my garage. I'm really happy with the results, but I had to work pretty hard to get there, and this is just for an every-day car, and I didn't try to get a show-car shine. For a little less money, I can get products at my local parts store that will probably do just as well.
UPDATE 12/20/14: Very pleased with the way water still is repelled after over 2 months.
