    Guys

    I was just wondering how do you get your pride and joy shiny? Can anyone swear by a product that gives fantastic results?
    I have always used Autoglym products but would love to know of any other products that give a top result.

    I'm using Zaino at the moment. Results are excellent but you have to invest time.

    Zymol - used to use Autoglym, but found it was a bit too 'chalky' for my last car (black), and was put off it after that.

    I understand that Autoglym also has a mild cut to it (so you might see red pigmentation on your polishing cloth), which isn't ideal.

    Zymol for all my cars, covers minor swirls and scratches better than Autogym (which just fills the scratches with chalk)

    A few diffent options..... I like polishing my car's on a regular basis say every few weeks! Is Zymol only to be applied annualy? or can you use it more often? Any hints on applying to the paint work would be appreciated.

    Zymol can be applied frequently, I think the finish improves after you've built it up by doing it a number of times (I do mine once a month)

    Autoglym, Turtle wax colour, 3M Hand glaze, Zymol.

    The car never really gets dirty enough.

    Zymol for me,I aslo used autoglym but found it to chalky,the downside with zymol is the time it takes to apply properly but it is certainly worth the effort.

    Didn't the 3 wise men bring gifts of Gold, driving sense and Mer? The last one must have been on work experience at the time

    If him upstairs uses Meguires Gold class then that's good enough for me.

    I do find that it dries really crusty before I start rubbing it off. Am I putting too much on maybe?

    Guys you might laugh at this but try it first.... I start by applying one coat of Autoglym Super Resin polish, buff off then apply a coat of Autogym Extra Gloss Protection, I let this dry then polish off using an autoglym cloth (which are superb) but heating the cloth up with a hairdryer every few buff's.. The results are excellent and after a few goes your paint work is like glass...

    Try it out and I bet you will love the results...
