Got the swift interior clean up done after a long time, and followed with the Polo wash.

I had got the paint sealant done as soon as the car arrived (Polo) and it's about 3 months plus. Secret to maintaining it, wash less frequent and do a proper wash only. Would have washed it about 3-4 times, rest all natural rain wash.

As usual i was very happy with the job done, was a very busy day so had to coordinate with the shop to get a slot, but glad that it eventually worked out well

Had been to 3M HSR today for the first inspection of my 5-year under body coating plan. Siddu sir was present there and personally inspected my car. Had a great time talking to him. The car was touched up as required and all my complaints (put up in the previous post) were taken care of. I am definitely going back for the paint sealant. Sidhu sir is honestly reading all the comments put up here and making sure they are taken care of.

Am I delighted: yes.
Value for money: yes
Am I going back: yes
Will I recommend to others: yes.

Same here. Been there for a wash as a part of my AMC and Mr. Sidhu personally took care of everything there. Even though they had hanful of vehicles, they promptly put me in a comfort zone and managed to get my ride quickly. Definitely echo your words up here.

What is this paint sealant? And how does it work. Will it work on an older car? or does it make sense to only get it done on a new paint job/car?

My car collects dust like its going out of fashion. If i dont use her one day, there is a nice layer of dust sitting on it.

There are also miniscule scratches appearing on it every now and then, and i cant figure from where. Would a paint sealant help me prevent this?

@stormsearcher: Paint sealant is just a synthetic wax/sealant applied on the paint surface of the car, after preparing the surface.

The surface is prepared by washing, claying, wet sanding(if required for older vehicles) and then machine polishing, followed by hand application of the sealant.

This helps to protect the paint surface from harsh external nature elements.

There are many sealants in the market and the durability depends on quality of the application and the product used.

Does a foam wash include interior cleaning too ? Or is it just the outside body?
the paint on my Innova bonnet appears to be very rough . Is a foam wash enough or should I opt for a more detailing package ?

They will vacuum and wipe the interiors.

Paint roughness etc will not be taken care by just a wash, you will have to do some serious clean up/polish.

A foam wash includes interior vacuuming. They remove your car mats and give it a through clean while another guy neatly vacuumes your car.

If the surface of your car appears to be very rough, then going for a detailing package is more beneficial in the long run. Basically, the surface contaminants (which causes the roughness when you glide your hands over the surface) will be removed by claying the car. Polishes and sealants protects the surface and gives you a better shine.

From the earlier experiences of bhpians, there was frequent breakdown of the pressure washer in this facility. They used to pour water from a stagnant source in the wash area. This could end up in more harm than good. Check out before you leave your vehicle. I would suggest you to drop in at HSR anf enjoy your experience.

I had got a small dent and paint work done for my my Duster wheel arch (posted snaps earlier). Since the PPF was removed from that portion, I had been trying to go to Sidhu's place and get it done. This afternoon, after lunch at Madhuram Arusuvai restaurant, stopped by there. Of course I had contacted Pradeep and he asked me to swing by. Stopped by there, got the work done after catching up with Sidhu and Pradeep. I was leaving and wanted to make the payment. They would not accept that as it was too small a job Also picked Pradeep's brain on how to keep the edges of PPF free off the micron size dirt particles. Thanks guys, happy new year to Sidhu, Pradeep and the entire team there. Cheers

Spent almost the whole day there, in town from US for couple of months and my friend wanted some nice things to be done for his newly bought Vento, booked an appointment for the morning but got delayed. The overall experience was really nice and professional, my friend is also a happy camper, have no complaints on entire job well done ...my son who came in yesterday could not see the work and was livid when I met him now. Saw some bhpians and guess met Waxeloquent with his pristine duster , nice meeting you sir ( missed the chance to introduce myself, I was the tallish guy with glasses when you were in the store). Pics don't do much justice, but opted for floor mats, paint sealant and windshield protective film.

Completed the first year AMC from Mr. Sidhu's outlet today. When I asked him for the next schedule, he asked me not to come for the next 6 months after which we discuss this topic, an honest answer which I liked. Just wipe with the duster, wash only when needed and wax once a month after shampoo wash was the additional advice which I got from him. Will I go back, YES, I will definitely.
