That is a difficult view to lower the expectations from an exclusive dealer.

If this was from a dealer - expectations would have been absolutely lower. When one is an Exclusive detailer - such silly mistakes are not expected to say the least.

Agreed, that's why in the last 3+ years of ownership I did not have such residues anywhere, be it interiors or exteriors.


Generic comments doesn't help. Let us keep it to the point. Do you have a solution, then please help me with it.

Its important to inspect before leaving the place, else tough to go back when you discover a few things. Sticky marks, grease etc are common, nothing really to combat that other than taking a careful look. A call to Honda Service may also suggest a solution( unlikely) but worth a try as they may have come across this before.

While leaving it was only the sticky grimy windscreen. This was ok for me as a good wipe would do the trick, which eventually did with 3M glass cleaner and some hard scrubbing. The other one happened by the condensation - mostly like Sohail said - more usage of the cleaning solution.

Had a check with Honda Guys to see if there is a possibility of moisture seeping inside. They replied in the negative. They feel it is on the surface, and since the material is not glass, could have had some reaction.

Siddu at 3M has agreed to help. I have no issues with their honest approach to business. The entire point is eye for detail, from an exclusive outlet like 3M.

Generally all glass cleaners and APCs are plastic safe!

It might then be due to wiping the plastic with a contaminated cloth, which caused a few scratches or fine hazing of the plastic. Which is appearing as a residue deposit.

Next I'd try a plastic polish to see if they indeed are scratches or not.(if they are, then they'll be easily removed with the polish)

Do you have any polishes with you?

Dont do anything now. See what the dealer offers, if not ask him to check with 3M directly for a solution.

Yes! it will help!

But Jaggu is also right that in saying that since they caused it in the first place, they should remove it!

Your call really!

Just for info- You can use any polishes meant for paint on clear plastics as well!!

Since plastics are generally softer than paint(not always the case) these polishes tend to work better and faster on clear plastics.

I've restored a few of my old CDs that were scratched by using a rubbing compound on them!

Did not get a call back yet. So what is the difference between exclusive showroom and the one at the dealers?

I am happy with the stuff happening at Dakshin Honda, and whatever mess they do, they own it up too and solve it too.

Hope to solve the mess by myself, its a pity that an exclusive outlet put me to this!!

Tried out the Exterior Beautification option with them on my Zen, work was good but the consequence of the work was a spending of 900 more to replace the Horn after it stopped working post the work.

I did not bother to go back there again as they wouldn't have owned up to it that its their work that made the horn go kaput. I presume it was during the washing where they spray onto the engine compartment that might have been the culprit.

So for me its a mixed bag experience. I would go back to H2O Therapy near Iblur lake wherein they do a decent job with less cost.

No workshop or water wash center will own up to water damage to horns. I have lost 2 pairs in the last 2 years because of this carelessness. Now i ensure i carry a plastic bag and wrap it up and ensure i get to use the blow hose myself to dry the bay after the wash.

Lalu you have a valid case, i think you should call them and give a serious feedback.
