Yesterday I washed the murano for the first time. we picked it up from the dealer two weeks ago. the last two weeks has been raining and yesterday was finally a good day and i started in the morning with a wash using dawn, then zaino clay, then Z7 wash, then Z5, Z6, Z2, Z6, Z2, Z6, Z2, Z8. last night my arms were tired from the work, but it was worth it.

i don't have pictures of the final coat of Z8, the pictures are after the last wipe down with Z6. i suppose if you don't know about the zaino products, all these Z#'s makes no sense to you. it was my first time using zaino and i'm glad i spent the money. the murano also have a clear bra on, which is pretty much invisible except from certain angles.

Beautiful.
And of course, with the Zaino, it will look that way for as long as you wish it too with minimal maintenance.

Good job.


Can't see the bra. Good job on that too.

i'm pretty excited about this zaino stuff. i read about it for a long time, but never spent the money to try it. i'm glad i finally did. i can't wait to apply it to my frontier and maxima. too bad the initial application takes so long. i spent all day on the murano.

Just remember to apply Zaino with light coats. If you have trouble rubbing it off, you've put it on too thick. If you follow this rule, Zaino is not harder than the other "waxes".

It's a great product.

My only suggestion

To complement that beautiful color and wax job!

Ditch the front license Plate, if you can.

You missed a spot ;)


Honestly, I'm ticked that Nissan didn't offer red back in 03, when I bought mine. That color is just incredible on the MO.

How did it hold up in the rain? What about after the rain? Still look Zaino'd or back to how it looked before and needs a wash to look Zaion'd again?

Also... what do i need to buy to start my zanio experience? The site has a crap load of stuff to purchase.

the zaino held up very well! my wife drove it in the rain to work and told it the water beaded up and the car was dried when she got to work. she drove back in the rain as well and most of the water was gone except for little streaks here and there like around window trims. next day it looked flawless in the sun, still shiny as it was.

i bought their ultimate or whatever package plus their Z8 grand finale spray. the bare minimum you'll need is Z1 or ZFX and Z2pro or Z5. read their "show car in a day" under tips and faqs.
