    I am in the process of obtaining Swissvax.
    Zaino +1 - no matter the color, these products are phenomenal!

    DO IT!!! You'll never look back again. I even use their Autobahn which I thought to be a ridiculous purchase at the time, but it's amazing quality stuff.

    I used the Meguirs cleaner wax yesterday on my SX and it looked great. I hope that if will help keep the car from getting soooooo dirty.

    The true shine and gloss of paint comes from the polishing of it. I would concentrate on that step, as any sealant or wax will only enhance the paint it's sitting on, while adding protection. A sealant will generally last longer, and you can wax on top of a sealant, but not vice versa.

    One thing I would not recommend is Megs Cleaner wax. It's ok until you try just about anything else. Keep in mind, every time you apply it, it removes whatever wax is on the paint from before, and if you're trying to layer, it's not going to happen. Collinite is an excellent wax to use by itself or on top of a sealant. Klasse AIO and Klasse SG are tried and true product that will last a long time, I'm talking months, not weeks. They look good on any color.

    I had a black Ford F-150 and used the Zaino. Mucho compliments on it. I have a white SX turbo now, but I'm sticking with Zaino!
