    Hey guys, I know this hasn't ever been discussed on this website so I'm asking. What wax do would you recommend? I'v always used the Zymol in the bottle, but maybe there's something else I maybe need to use.

    So many different recommendations depending on your goal.
    Do you like waxing? Paint Sealants and Ceramic coatings, last a longer time. But may not have the Warmth from a Carnauba. Classic Single Stage or Clear Coat Base Coat? That Changes things. Color and presence of Metal Flake in the Paint?

    I use Pinnacle Souveran on my Black 64 Single Stage Painted Corvette.
    I use Pinnacle Signature Series II on my Blue 68 Corvette cause its better for not muting the Metal Flake in that. Those 2 are Carnauba

    My Velocity Yellow 2014 Corvette and my Grigio Silverstone F430 both get the same, which is Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Sealant topped with Wolfgang Fuzion Wax.
    Nice Glossy Finish with excellent Bug and dirt repel. The Fuzion adds the Carnauba Glow/Warmth to the Gloss from the Wolfgang DGPS

    +1, I have been using P21S for about 10 years, and really like the results. It is also very easy going on, and removes easily too. One secret: when shopping, buy S100 from a Harley Davidson store, either online or brick and mortar. It is the exact same product as P21S, same white plastic tub and blue plastic lid, but typically priced under $20, versus around $40 at your local German car dealership.

    For my daily driver I use a paint sealant called Rejex. For a daily driven, but garaged car, it lasts 6 to 9 months. I even use it on the window glass, tail lights and headlights. For added gloss, I can apply P21S over the Rejex, after waiting a day for it to cure first.

    With whatever you choose, a thorough wash, and careful claybar cleaning of the paint first is a must.

    Just checked, under $16 for S100 (P21S) on Ebay with free shipping. Use search term "S100 wax" and scroll down

    Yes, it is made by a third party for Zymol, but is still a decent product for what it is...when I need something with a mild polishing action, I will reach for it. It does leave a nice gloss, though not very long lasting. I used Zymol Ital back in 2000 or so, long before they raised the price about triple to what it is today. It was a good product, but I find P21S/S100 to be it's equal (if not better), yet goes on much easier, removes easier, and costs next to nothing when purchased at a Harley Davidson shop. ;)

    I use P21S as well but very sparingly, most of the time a good paint sealer does the job on appearance and lasts 10x longer, I use klasse and wolfgang.
