It's not that big a deal. The Z1 cleaner is mandatory. Apply it after washing your car with Dawn to strip old wax off, then use the Z2 for clear coated cars or Z3 for regular paint. anything beyond that is optional. The Z1 cleaner is applied and left to dry to a haze and then apply the Z2or3 right over the cleaner and let it set for one hour, then wipe it off, you won't have to rub it hard it will wipe off easily. A second coat is recommended and believe me it will make it look even better.
If you need the swirl mark and scratch remover get it but as I said its optional in my opinion.

By the way, Zaino makes a big point to use 100% cotton for application and removal of the polish. Also the polish can be applied in the sun or shade(I prefer the shade cause I sweat a lot even for a fat guy).

I did my Daily driver S10 Blazer a couple off months ago to try this stuff for the first time and that thing still looks and feels like it was just waxed and its been washed a couple of times and exposed to the elements continuously. I have been using Mcquires products for many years, but I have changed to the Zaino. I wish it was available over the counter but it's worth the extra effort to mailorder it.

Just my humble opinion.

The one thing I would add to that is to get some of the Gloss Enhanser for in between polishes and to "brighten" things up at the car shows.

I didn't use the pre-cleaner and just used the polish a couple of times and the Gloss Enhancer frequently. I know they recommend the precleaner but I like the results without it. The kit that I won at a show had it in it but I haven't used it so far. Maybe I will try a section of the car to see if there is a difference. I have a hard time imagining getting a much better look on my black 70.

Remember only use a VERY light coat. A little goes a long way.
