:shocked: those prices are cheap, must be back off a lorry job, cos Zymol prices are generally fixed across all suppliers.

Where's Dave........

Anyone know if there's any issues with using Swissol cleaners, then Zymol Wax, like the Rouge one above ??

If you look on Gmund web site you'll see they're now selling Swizzol so I would imagine they are selling all Zymol stock off cheap , I don't need any for about 3 years or I'd get some :thumbsup:

the zymol on ebay is Gmund collection they sell Porsche Books and gifts it use to be Owned by Gmund cars many years ago.

Gmund collection became a Zymol resseler but by the looks of things they are closing down and getting rid of stock ,their website is no longer running either.

Reference mixing Zymol and swissol shudn't be a problem.
Even with the discount they are giving its still more money than Swissol products.

Zymol Rouge 43 on ebay (38% carnuaba)
Swissol Scuderia 69 , (40%)
think the Zymol sounds better value ?? or is the Swissol better quality ?

I don't know who these people are , but then I don't get involved with the reselling of Zymol, whoever they are, they're being a bit naughty as they're not supposed to discount , so my advice , if you're into zymol would be to snap it up whilst its there:wink3:
As for the comparisons between Rouge and swissol scuderia , spearsey will have to help me out here as i'm not totally up on the different grades of swissol.
The rouge is designed purely for red cars , where as I'm not sure if the scuderia is designed for purely red or for italian paints as a whole, like our ital wax.
Any Zymol or swissol wax that has a higher percentage of carnauba will offer more protection and longer lasting shine than the lower one.
But the rouge is also designed to enhance the colour of red paint as well as the finish and protection , so take that into consideration also.

Why does the % of white against yellow differ?, which is best?
As Titanium has 13% more Carnauba wax than Rouge is that the better buy?

Zymol Titanium Glaze (226g) Features
Contains 51% Carnauba Wax (80% Yellow 20% White by Volume)

Zymol Rouge Wax - Features
Contains 38% Carnauba Wax by volume (90% White and 10 Yellow)

White carnauba is harder than yellow , the more % of white you get in your wax the better.
As you go up the scale of Zymol waxes , the concentration of white increases , up until you get to the estate glazes , then its all white and then when you get to the royale , carnauba sap is used , which is even harder setting.
For the record , i know I mentioned this before but the new Ital is also made from carnauba sap.

Thanks Dave, if thats the case why is Titanium more expensive than Rouge.:huh:

Titanium was developed for the SUV market , it suits cars that do a lot of motorway driving as it also contains an extra ingredient which makes it set extremely hard , the idea i suppose it steers more towards durability as opposed to colour enhancement
Personally Amo I think your rouge is perfectly suited to your car as your getting excellent colour enhancement and protection , If I didn't use the Royale or Vintage , I would only use titanium on daily drivers and stick with the colour specific/enhancement ones like rouge , ebony and concours for the excotica/weekend cars:thumbsup:

Like Dave said this guy is been naughty and will be in trouble with Zymol i gues:thumbsdow
As for the rouge i dont know anything about this one ,and Dave is right Scuderia is the same as Ital designed for Italian cars.

I agree with Dave though all you Zymol users snap it up you wont get another offer like this.

Don't use the pad at all. You need to use your hands and remember you don't need to use much at all to cover the entire car.

I'll be doing a video with Dave maybe around Christmas that will show you to do it properly.

What's the cheapest Vintage anyone has seen?

Just did a search on vintage Zymol.

To buy in the US = $1852.00 ...... 947.02

To buy in the UK = $3,621.79 ..... 1,852

We are being charged nearly double what the US are being paid.
