    Zymol is definitely decent stuff. Price is part of the reason its not getting mentioned by everyone as you can get plenty of products that rival Zymol for a lot less money. Also Zymol isn't as acessible in Aus as a lot other brands which are being mentioned.

    Using waxes as an example if I'd tried Zymol Vintage it most likely would be listed as my favourite wax, but the law of dimishing returns applies here, I've just tried Glasur and it's a very nice wax as are many in this price range, when products for 5-10% of the price do close to the same job as an LSP it's hard to justify spending that much. Something like 95% of the overall result and 'look' come from prepping and polishing paint correctly anyway.

    People can only list products they have used. Zymol is not widely used in Australia because the local suppliers have always been hopeless, but I have a feeling more and more people will start to import it.

    Thats why I noted I am still deciding in a lot of categories. For example, how can I list a legitimate favourite sealant when I have not used Zaino, Wolfgang and Duragloss? I'd be misleading you if I said Meguiars M21, which currently is my favourite out of some very ordinary sealants I've tried like Chem Guys Jetseal.

    Glasur and Concours represent great value. Looks are top drawer, beading and sheeting is excellent, dirt repellency is excellent, durability is good, they load on the applicator easily, they spread easily and buff off easily. Basically, all the boxes get ticked. You might get waxes that match it in most areas but miss out on one or two areas. Some people say they don't like Zymol's gassing, but I have not experienced this. Maybe I'm lucky.

    Sometimes people come out screaming something like "my Ultragloss Superwet Wax cost me $29 and looks as good as Zymol Concours". Yeah maybe, but perhaps it does not repel dirt as well, or the texture is not as nice, or the can it comes in is garbage, or the applicator needs to be spritzed with QD to allow the wax to spread.

    And in praising Zymol, let me say I am not basing my opinion on price. Swissvax is equally pricey, but their waxes and cleanser are far down my list of favourites these days.

    Gassing occurs after the initial buff off of the wax, solvents still in the wax cause it to haze slightly again, needing a secondary buff 2-3hrs later.

    The Dodo guys have come along way from Dom's kitchen stovetop but they still have a long way to go.
