You understand that products listed in the survey are all PBMG products, don't you? For durability, Zaino Z5/Z2 are probably the best of the non-permanent LSPs. If you spray with Z8, protection will probably last indefinitely. Whether it gives you the look you want is another issue.
I have a bottle of UPGP on the way. I'm doing a limited comparison review of Z5 (X2) + Z2 (X1) vs UPGP (X3) on the hood of my Audi. (For protection, the rest of the car will have Zaino only sealants.) For QD, I'll use Z6 on the Zaino sealant and
UWWP (Ultima Waterless Wash Plus+ Concentrate, concentrated waterless auto wash, waterless car wash
) on the UPGP (based on CeeDog's recommendations).
My criteria for this review are looks and durability. I'll report every few weeks and every month or so on the durability part.
While I'll comment on ease of application, I think that there's not much difference. With Zaino, you have to remove the haze. But you can apply the next coat immediately. With UPGP, it's WOWA but you have to wait at least 45 minutes before applying the next coat. Overall, I think the application time for three coats will be about the same.
In any case, folks here focus on PBMG products to the exclusion of other products. Since this is a detailing forum, all products are fair game, IMO. I want to broaden the discussion.
