Zymol also sells a wax called Japon for japanese paints such as Lexus which helps prevent micro-scratches, but a couple of days later after I picked up the car, I noticed those so called micro-scratches. Probably the damage of the dealer's prep.
Also i have the Spectra Blue Mica which is dark in color, i still have wax residue on tha car after waxing. I turn the cloth over 2-3 times, but in the sunlight you can still see the residue in reflection.

I have not used this product yet, but I remember seeing it posted here awhile ago. It will take a while to read about each of their products, and once you finish reading it's not so confusing after all. So on that note check this link. www.zainobros.com

"gray" not "grey"
My vote is for Klasse All-in-One. Affordable, fast and does a superb job.
As many times as we have to wax our cars down here in South Florida because of the sun breaking down the finish, it doesn't make sense to spend half your life waxing and/or polishing your IS. I'd rather be driving it!
Klasse all-in-one gets another vote. I follow up with the Klasse Gloss. I use the all-in-one on all the exterior glass, too. and hey, it's an acrylic formula that won't stain the trim when you get a little sloppy.
I am crazy about the detail process as well as one of my friends. We have found the Klasse does work well (and lasts) and the high end 3M products. I first started using Mothers which does work well, but will not last as long as the Klasse.
Have not tried the legendary Zymol, but a lot of people question it now that the Turtle wax company bought the German outfit some time ago. Sounds like it is still good from ShoRoom_IS300. =)
Personally I am going to try the zainobros. From what I have seen from guys that haved used it on their RX-7's it seems just simply amazing and have heard it being used for many many show events, even Contours. There are many good detailing web links out there! (Hint: if you want to avoid the fine hair scratches I would also recommend picking up a boar hair brush (will only find it at detail web sites) for the washing process and use lots and lots of water.. Keep the brush clean! =)
