Hello,
I just bought an 04 coupe cambio in nuvolari gray with beige and tan interior. It should arrive on Wednesday from Dallas as I bought it used with only 311 miles on it. I couldn't pass up the deal that I got on it.

I'm thinking about what kind of things I should do to protect and beautify it. I'm interested in putting some kind of clear bra on it but there are so many manufacturers of these products that I don't know which one to get. Does anyone have any experience or comments about this?

I also saw that someone referred to Zaino on the paint. What is this?

I was interested in putting a Tubi on it, but after reading some of these helpful comments here, I am concerned that it might sound too loud in my conservative neighborhood. I'm going to hold off on that for now.

Are there any other suggestions that anyone has to make it look better for a longer time?

Thanks for any help.

Tony

Zaino is just a company that makes care car products for washing your car.

Here is some info on clear covers
http://www.armourfend.com/

I didn't check to see if they can fit the Maserati but I'm sure they can.

About the noise, don't worry about it, at low speeds you should be fine, get the tubi, you'll have smiles on your face when your not in your neighborhood.

when I was at dealer I looked at a Grey coup that i thought at first had a scratch along the middle of the hood then noticed it was just the edge of the clear coat bra that you can have installed by your maserati dealer. My brother just got a Boxster and he had his dealer install what they called Autobohn something or other and his car is grey and you can hardly notice it, but gives you good protection

Zaino is great, if you are passionate about your finish. Lots of steps, but the end result is spectacular. I have been using Zaino for years, after trying just about everything else. 3m Imperial Hand glaze shines just as well as Zaino, but doesn't last as long. That would be my second choice. Third choice would be Griots wax for all but Ferrari red, which may be my first choice. For some reason, when applied to the Ferrari red, the ever so slight tint of the wax really brings out the deep red, and the top surfaces seem to "glow" in the sunlight, providing a nice contrast. A few F-car owners i know use Griots for that reason. Zaino would make the same F-car red look shinier and a bit brighter overall, with less of a contrast. A more pure color. To my eye, though ever so slight, a Zaino car looks sportier in color and more glossy, whereas the Griots wax makes the color look a bit richer, a bit more subtle.

Congradulations on your car!

You may want to pick up a magazine called the Guru reports. They tested several waxes, rim cleaners etc.

I have been using a combination of items EagleOne Nano tech, Mequirs cleaner wax and I always finish it of with P21s. There are some extensive detailers forums at roadfly.com.

I would suggest you begin by "claying" the car with Clay Magic, then apply the wax & glazes.
