I am about to take deliver of a new mustang and in Kona Blue and I am looking for the best/easiest all in one package car detailing kit. I have seen a lot of recommendations for Klasse, Black Fire Wet diamond, and Zaino. I am looking for something that produces good depth and shine and that is durable enough that I am not having to reapply every weekend. I would like to avoid using an orbital buffer as well. Does anyone have any opinions on these kits?

Zaino

Klasse

Black Fire Wet Diamond

Any Help or advice would be appreciated.

Check out autogeek.net and search for klasse and collinite products. Easily applied by hand and do wonders for shine and protection. Look up vids on youtube at what the collinite wax does to ur car!

I have heard great things about Klasse. If I had to choose I would opt for that kit.

CroftGateUSA makes a nice spray sealant for touch ups (doesn't last that long) but they do not offer anything in the line of paint correction (ie removing swirls etc.). And no, CroftGate's Mega-Polish does NOT work. I have tried it by hand multiple ways and by dual action polisher and it is awful. The problem is that the abrasives don't break down properly and it ends up leaving micro marring all over the surface. I actually threw it out. CroftGate needs to wake up because Meg's SMAT (super micro abrasive technology) blows them out of the water.

Actually quick n slick lasts pretty long for me? I wash the car regularly with rain-x concentrated wash, megs cleaner wax, clay bar, quick n slick, aquanil-x

I should clarify my statement. For a spray sealant it has durability but compared to other protection products like Wolfgang DGS 3.0, Meg's Ultimate Wax, Meg's #16, or Klasse it falls way short. I would say Q&S lasts 6 weeks if you're lucky under daily driver conditions where I have tested and confirmed that Wolfgang DGS 3.0 lasts at least 4 months under daily driver conditions and even through the harsh chemicals of the automatic washes. I tried it out on my Mom's hood.
