Collinite #915 - Also very durable, but has more wax content so it's look is best suited for dark colors
To polish, a verb, is to abrade or remove paint. If you polish the paint with a (polish), you are removing a minuscule amount of clear-coat and improving clarity of the finish.

A wax, is protection. Waxes are non-abrasive, and serve to add a layer of protection to your finish whereas a polish removes a layer.

Zaino polishes are a different breed. They cost a lot and require a lot of work. They do not have polishes that do much correction, but they do have sealants that do a lot of protecting. If you look to spend hours on end layering Zaino, do it! The look will be unique due to the shiny nature of the product. Collinite 915 is a thick paste wax that will add shine and gloss, but really bring out the black. The best way to explain is to say that Zaino brings out the clearcoat where you see a lot of "shine" whereas 915 brings out the black paint, where you will see a lot of depth to it.

If you like shiny, Collinite also has its 476 wax, which is more durable than 915 but has less natural waxes.
