    There are lot of debate which is most durable wax, Just because its synthetic does not mean it will protect for more time. There are many synthetic waxes which wears on within few weeks and some traditional waxes have reputation to last almost 6 months in adverse conditions. So it just depends on brand and quality i feel.

    Some interesting discussions

    Biggest wax test done where even Meguairs NXT 2.0 synthetic wax failed in early in adverse conditions

    Sunil Collinite 915 is a bit solid kind of wax and it takes more time to apply than 845.This is FYI..So you will have to do more hand work. If you can get a buffing machine, it will be much easier.

    I have DA polisher Kestral, Got it through shopyourworld.com from UK, Cost about 8k, just for enthusiastic. Waxing is just 15mins work with this DA polisher, which otherwise with hand would have taken whole day. Polishing and swirl removal will take 1-2 hours. There are better light weight DA polishers like flex or meguairs, but cost more than double. Porter cable comes only with 110v, that would need big transformer to convert as these machines are more than 500 watts.

    For just waxing i think you can find machines in ebay.in costing 2-3k, which are 60 watts machines, but these wont remove swirls.

    Wet look is fine, some of the products like Meguairs NXT 2.0 liquid, collinite 845, Mothers FX Synthetic wax, Eagle One nano wax are also very easy to apply and provide deep wet look. Ofcourse Zaino must be also very easy to apply.

    But for removing Swirls, which is common in India(due to car wash boys using same water bucket for many cars"), does require some cutting compounds and not easy to remove swirls without polishers. Not sure if Zaino has any products to remove swirls, let us know.

    Interesting observations here http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?t=10656p in regard to comparission of various swirl removal products. Interestingly here also Autoglym wins again.

    Incedently my old car detailer (previously using 3M) came to me for introducing Autoglym (for a demo), I didnt had much idea about Autoglymn at that time. I think i need give a look into it.

    but Surprised , why they've not included Zaino Z-PC in the test ?
    Zaino Z-PC + Tri Foam hand applicatior pad Has enough polishing ability to remove moderate swirls & scratches & finishes down flawless glossy results with ease which requires no multiple step surface corrections.
    will send a professional video link tomorrow for Z-PC with RO Polisher on a Lamborghini

    Ya, its been purely marketing posts here, and rubbishing well known and proven products. Not sure if Team fiat should allow marketing in threads. Most forums simply bans the user even if they find any sign of marketing. Since it might make forums full of advertisers instead of genuine contributors.
