He did the Sunfilm for my Figo. Neat job, except that I'm watching bubbles appear on the film. Need to get it replaced.

-Need to bargain and quote references to get the good price
-No product catalog available
-Crew member used a blade to remove the Ford Emergency # sticker from the rear quarter glass. Heck - its there for a reason.

Its not band opposite SIET and you need to go inside a road opposite to SIET.

They can't have done a neat job if bubbles have started appearing. And it's not possible to stick the film without removing stickers that are stuck on the inside.

joshguy, they charge 1000. 2500 is for 3 services. If you got charged 2500 for just one service, then you may have been conned.

If you take it to their place for the exterior polish, they will also vacuum the car and do some general interior cleaning for free. This is as good as what they do in A.S.S. There is a separate interior detailing package for 1000 where they completely transform the interiors of the car. I saw them working on an NHC and I was very impressed with the results.

While waxpol (i am assuming you mean WAXOYL) products are equally good, the problem with them is, unlike 3m/Balaji, you cannot get this done outside the a.s.s. AFAIK. With Balaji, you can hang around and check the progress, which at the a.s.s. may not be possible...and becos of the extra rush at a.s.s, things are rushed-up.

At Chennai Ford, I opted for Waxoyl treatment (paint+rust and all that)..they gave a warranty card and promised free touch up/cleaning etc during the 1st/2nd service.

I did the sunfilms in Balaji and they did a very good job ...as mentioned by Gilead getting an appointment on weekends is near to impossible. I have been trying to get an appointment for past 1 month and was not successful.

It is good to know that the Balajee is rendering a good service in Car Polish and Sunfilm. I will try the polishing of may car in September on the anniversary day after the touch ups of all the minor scratches. After that let me too give the first hand review on their work.
