Default Car wash & detailing studio - Feynlab (HSR Layout, Bangalore)

This is a new car wash and detailing studio set up by Mr.Krishna Kumar located in HSR layout.

Mr Krishna claims that Feynlab used to manufacture coatings and sealants earlier and were an OE supplier to many European brands. Now, they are getting into the retail business and opening detailing studios.

Address: #2322, 17th Cross, 27th Main Rd, Sector 2, HSR Layout, Bengaluru, Karnataka 560102

Contact Person: Mr Krishna Kumar

Phone number: 094492 11235

The place itself is very spacious and they have full fledged water wash. Mr Krishna says that they have a full fledged water treatment plant, so there's no risk of being forced to shift to water-less wash like most 3M Car Care Centres.


Services offered
  • Car Wash and Wax
  • Full polishing, paint correction and detailing.


My experience:


I only went for a wash. For Detailing, I usually prefer my friend Sunny or Keystone Enterprises who have a large body of work to speak for themselves!

So, even though I really liked Feynlab, I doubt I will be going there for detailing work any time soon.

However, the courtesy given to me by the owner Mr Krishna Kumar was exemplary. I had spoken to him on the phone before I went there and the moment I pulled up, he came rushing out to greet me. There was no time wasted and I explained to him and his team that I'm in a bit of a hurry. They started the cleaning immediately, pulling out the carpets, vacuuming the interior and once that was done, started the foam wash itself.

They use Chemical Guys soap to wash the car and Chemical Guys wash mitt.

For waxing, they used a Chemical Guys spray-on Wax.

At the end of everything, this was my car:

Apart from the wash and wax on my car, Krishna explained a lot of other things they do and showed me some of the ceramic sealants, ceramic coatings and self-healing coatings they have on offer. He also showed me a high GSM cloth they use. Felt really nice and soft!

Krishna also explained that every car they coat comes with warranty and a dedicated, unique ID. They even give a small manual which details how to clean the car and maintain the coating and comes with space to fill out when a maintenance was done and so on.

Pros:
  • Very spacious place, plenty of parking
  • Extremely good attention to detail
  • Very down to earth and approachable owner who is ready to explain everything they do on your car and answer any doubts you may have.
  • High Quality materials used. From the car wash mitts to the soap, to the wax. And for polishing and detailing too, they seem to use branded stuff like Chemical Guys. I've rarely seen Chemical Guys stuff in India before.
  • Very nicely lit up studio to take some very nice photos in! Almost any car will look good here!

Cons
  • Very far from my house. It's on the other side of the Lakshman Rekha that is Silk Board.
  • Pretty much nothing else.

Price:

I paid Rs 767 for my car wash. I think it's a very reasonable price.


Worries
  • That they dont retain this level of quality and attention to detail as the business expands. The 3M Car Care Centres used to be fantastic a few years back but as they started expanding, the quality dropped.
  • Employee turnover: If the current staff has been trained by the best, then when they move on, it can leave a vacuum and the new staff may not understand the high standards set by the outgoing guys.

Note Mr Krishna was a stranger to me till I met him. I heard of this place from a fellow TBHP-ian Dr AD and went there. I have ZERO commercial interest in this business. I am just happy that I found a car wash place who does a great job and the icing on the cake is the interaction I had with Mr Krishna, the owner.
