In Reply to: Zymol $1600 Is it a joke? posted by John D. on February 07, 2000 at 12:15:54:
or was at least planning on buying it when I last talked to him. A tech. at a local BMW shop told me he was going to purchase this wax for his 88 535(i think), because it's the best wax in the world, or something to that effect. I guess some people just really like their bimmers and want to use the best products available, although you could probably buy a very used 535 for the same amount as the wax. I read a tidbit in the booklet that Zymol gives you and apparently the wax was developed for the Bugatti Atlantique type 57 coupe. This is the badboy that is worth 15-20 million depending on the market and I think, although not sure, there are only 2 in existence and Ralph Lauren owns one. I guess when you are dealing with one of the most expensive cars of all time you develop a special wax, and then attempt to get back some of the development costs by charging up the ass to the consumer. Eh well, thats my $0.02.
