I am planning on using zaino's Z2 and Z5 products with Z6 gloss for few coats, do I need to wax the car as the last step?

There is no need to wax, although some do just that because they like the look.
Personally, I use the ZCS (clear seal) to extend the life of the Z2/Z5, and maintain with Z8 when I wash.

I agree with dpritchette. There is no need to wax. I use Z-AIO, Z2, Z clear seal, and follow up each wash with a coat of Z6 and Z8.

If you wax your Bimmer, then you will have to remove the oils in the wax inorder to get the full effects of the Zaino.

Be sure to layer the sealants with z6 in between!, ie. Z2 then z6 then z5 then z6 then z2...

You dont have to wax the car after zaino. You most certsinly can but you cant use a cleaner wax, only a carnuba wax. Its give it a bit more of a wet look but besides that nothing else.

Be sure to wash with z7 only (avoid taking off all the zaino with a harsher wash solution)
