: I have been trying to figure out what are the best products to use for protecting the finish on my oxford green 540.
: Zymol? meguiars? Another product?
: What gives the best finish?
: Which is the easiest to use?
I have found Zymol works great for the exterior. I use Zymol HD Cleanse works to clean the paint and Zymol Carbon wax to protect it. I have tried other waxes and have not been happy. Some of them dried to a "white" which was a disaster on my black on black 535i.
For the leather, I am using Eagle Leather Cleaner and Conditioner (2 separate products). Although Lexol worked fine, I found that the Eagle conditioner leaves my seats looking "wet" longer. When I tried to get this effect with Lexol, I was using too much product and it was gumming up on me.
