Gave my car to 3M for cleaning recently. Got Interior cleaned with foam, that also included AC vent cleaning and 5 point check. It was for around 2500rs. Exterior i just got the cleaning + basic wax treatment done for 900rs.

Interior they have done a great job, It looks as good as new, the doorpads and seats look really different now.
only problem i have is the carpets were not cleaned properly. It actually worst than when gave the car, specially the rear carpet. Because rear seats are never been used in my car, i mean very rarely, when i check today morning carpets were little dirty. They didnt put any polish on the dashboard, after i told them they did put, reason given to me that polish will attract dust :-/

Exterior cleaning was good but wax treatment was horrible. Actually i didnt felt any wax on the car. I had arguments there with service people and after 15 mins of talking they told me that for basic waxing they use some cheaper 3M wax. It should have been conveyed to me before. here are few snaps, sorry for low quality phone cam snaps. anyways i was not charged(even though i insisted on paying few times) for waxing and only exterior cleaning was charged for 380rs.

PS: The black patch on the doorpad is shadow not dirt.

Were the seats washed and did it dry by the time you collected it ?

Last time I got them washed at Balaji it was damp for a day or so and left a musty odour

It was not completely dry, neither so wet that it will get on your cloths. I left the window slightly open, by morning it was almost dry, i also left the car outside in the afternoon with windows open for 2 hours and its completely dry after that but there is some freshner kind of smell, which will take sometime to go away i guess. But its not bad smell anyway.

Hi! Can you please tell us how well the film sticks to the glass area even without removing the panels. Were they able to reach all the corners of the window glass pane?

How does it look now, after 4~5 months of usage?

Am planning to get my figo's sunfilms done there. 'Am not very comfortable to get my panels opened up for such type of work. Your feedback will be very helpful.

All windows are fine, its been 5 months since installation. Takes about an hour extra, but I feel its worth it.

Need to check this out since this is a lot closer for me than Kodambakkam plus can avoid the Gemini circle traffic.

How do they offer polishing services without waterwash though?

Does 3M have a service for paint protection? I feel my car's paint chips easily. Also very small rust has creeped in hard to see places. I used some spray paints that I use on my RC car bodies to seal it for now.

Yes, they do. It gives a wonderful gloss finish, even on a new car. It protects from general atmospheric stuff, but needs care and cleaning. I doubt if it would prevent damage from, eg, stone chips.

Uncle Google tells us that there is a film produced by 3m. Coat your whole car! Interesting stuff, but probably expensive (although perhaps not compared to paint repairs) and ...not, I think, available here.
