I'm sure it's Zymol. I looked at the can for about a minute trying to comprehend the price tag. It was a clear can with light blue paste inside and french writing on it. It' was at Car Buffs in Square one. They have a display case in the back full of stuff.

well it must have been their best of the best show quality wax available or something. It's no where near that price elsewhere. I think i spent no more than $60 on 3 bottle of soap, cleaner wax, and polish.

Hey Bart,
Yeah i seen it there too with some fancy packaging.

At Canadian Tire i think they have them for about $20/bottle like djcontra mentioned. I bought mine at Costco for cheap. Came with 2 large bottles...don't remember the price though.

Car buffs is way overpriced for that kind of stuff.

Yeah but what I'm wondering is why would a can of wax cost 700, I mean what is so special about it. Shit if you pay 700 for a can of wax I hope someone is using it on a Ferrari or something cause it's just stupid.

It had to of been a typo. I use Zymol on my car too, and it wasn't more than $20 (USD). Just for the hell of it go pick up a bottle of it and take it to the check out counter and see if the cash register says it is $700.

Did anyone else noticed after putting on Zymol that "house flies" seem to love it. For the first few weeks I kept having to swat them off the car, they were all over.

You've probably seen something like zymöl Estate Vintage Glaze or one of the other exclusive estate glazes. This one is refillable for life at no extra charge.

Yeah, the wax was something simular to that. Don't remember how it looked now, but it wasn't the ordinary Zymol we are use to seeing.

It's very true about the flys as well. Also with meguires products. I guess it's that fruity smell?

Holy shit. I mean look at the container it's in - probably Swarovski crystal or something.

Although the unlimited thing would be nice - you would get your money's worth after waxing your car a couple hundred times.

I notice Zymol makes bicycle wash / clean / wax products as well

Seriously though listen to the ingredients they list: "Among the protective ingredients in Vintage are evergreen, honeydew, coconut, cantaloupe and sunflower oils. Vintage contains 61 percent Brazilian No. 1 White Carnauba by volume"

Sounds like #&$@* skin care!
