I use Zaino and the shine you get is unbelievable....especially on a black car. Zaino will give you a better shine than any wax that I know of, but it requires numerous coats to do it.
Essentially, you have to make sure the car is completely clean (like clay bar removing contaminants clean) because Zaino is 99.9% optically perfect....so any imperfection will be maginified more and more with each coat. Then you use the car wash and wash your car a few times. Now the fun part.....this is where the layering comes in. You put a THIN layer of polish and let it cure (can happen is 20 minutes if you use their ZFX additive....6 hours otherwise). Then once you rub the dried polish off, then you put on a gloss enhancer spray and rub that in. Then repeat (put another thin layer of polish, then another layer of gloss enhancer). It will look 'ok' after 1 layer, but you will start to see a sick shine after 2-3 polish layers. I have heard of people doing up to 50 coats (which is just insanity).
Once you get good at using their polish, you can do a whole car with just 1oz of polish....and each bottle holds 8 oz.
So I guess it all comes down to how much time you want to spend polishing your car. B)
