I also have a white X, about 2 months old now. Have been thinking about using Zaino to wax. Does it really make a noticeable difference? White usually does not shine like dark colors or metallic colors. I got some Zymol from Costco and am thinking about using it to wax.
BTW, where did you get your Zaino? Is there a local distributor?
Fireblade6: You really got sharp eyes. I thought no one will
notice the "other" X Yeap, they have a '01 SS Touring.
Unfortunately they don't wash/wax their car as often as I do
hence I tried my best to hide it
MARFONG: Zaino doesn't show a lot of difference on TW. But
I'll still go for it for couple of reasons.
1. "zainoed" surface feel really good even my wife make fun
of me that I don't touch her that way
2. It's much easier to clean the car, especially on the tough
stain, tar, and bug juice.
3. It lasts longer than the other products I had used before.
I don't claim that I used lots of different products .. just my
BYW, I joined the zaino group buy about one or two months
ago. I think may be there's another one coming up real soon.
Just noticed that you got your X within 2 months of your order date. How did you get so lucky? I ordered mine in 7/'01 and got it delivered on 2/22/02 from Hopkin's Acura in Redwood City. Did you have to go out of the area, or pay above MSRP, or have forced accessories?
My X looks just like yours. Except, I put on Manik side steps instead of the factory side steps. And I don't have the rear air deflector.
Have you thought about tinting the front side windows? Many fellow MDX'ers have done it. The only other accessory I'm thinking of adding is the moonroof visor....because it is very noisy when the moonroof is open.
Go to Mr. Tint at St. Tomas Exp. and Stevens Creek, next to the car wash.
Both side fronts for about $70.
Max allowable tint is 70% (light transmission). They use Solarguard. I plan to do it as soon as I get mine.
Go for the max, it wont be that dark and still be legal.
I was over at Valley Fair and talked to a rep. there in one of those kiosks. Sounded like a great deal to me. He had samples, the max for the front sides is not very dark, believe me. But it definitely helps.
Let me know how it turns out!
