    Default Fading Paint

    My wife has bought a red 08 Zafira SRi and I know that the red paint fades over time, is there any products that would help protect the paint and stop the fading?

    It wont fade on her 08 Zafira, in 2007 VX changed from Solid Flame Red, to Lacquer protected Power Red. Just treat as normal though, give it a good polish with any AIO like AG SRP then a coat of wax every month and it will look like new all year round.

    polish-seal-wax

    get a good couple coats of wax on and it should protect it for a good few months

    just re-do it when the beading starts to stop

    As das said mate give it a good polish then a couple coats of wax I'd recommend collinite 476 this is a very good wax and last year it was still beading at 5 months of putting it on. I also polished and wax a 1999 Volvo in red was pink this was last summer and it's still bright red
