Default Car Cleaning : MRF Tyredrome (Chennai)

I have been getting my car cleaned here almost twice a month. The rate is reasonable, around 220bucks. You have to book 2-3days in advance.
They do interior vacuuming(only mats and stuff no dashboard) and outside car wash with automatic machine.
There outer body cleaning is pretty good and surface becomes really smooth, just one polish after that and you are good 15-20days.

For underbody cleaning i go to a smaller less sophisticated place hehe.

You can also get alignment and balancing done there but never used these services so can't comment.

Here is one pic of auto car wash.

Yep - did my WagonR there and was cool. Good decent price I should say.

Though the guys linger for tips after the wash.

BTW - where do you go for underbody cleaning?

Rahulkool you started a thread which i was about to start

I am regular there for the past 3 years and their service is very good and neat.

They vacuum clean the interiors and wash the mats too.

I stopped going there because some few months back their machine was in repair and i waited for a month and got fedup so bought a BOSCH car cleaner.Now i have a service station @ my house

They have the cheapest tubeless permanent puncture service @ Rs 75.The road side shop who do the temporary(which most people are not aware) charge nothing less than 175.

Even the nitrogen air is cheap here @ 45 per wheel,but i do not suggest it.I had nitro for more than a year in my swift ,last month i took my swift to CARS as there was a noise from suspension ,CARS asked me only one question "Sir is your tyre filled with nitrogen,if yes please remove it and fill the normal air ,drive for a week and let us know the feedback".

To my surprise the car was very smooth after that but noise was still there and thats another issue with steering.

I was a regular there from the 90s. That time this machine was the most sophisticated one in India and it was a wonderful experience. Yes, their service was good. Haven't been there in the last 4 years.

It is almost 10 months since they closed this center,Does anyone have idea as to when they are going to start again?

I could see the work in process in RK Salai.

Also please suggest a good water service center in and around adyar

Thanks

Yep - I hope the prices are the same with the service levels doubled for the better.

Or am I being greedy - there is water shortage in the city and I wonder how he will manage!

This place had a lot of activity happening in the 1st week of June when I was in chennai. Apparently the only gripe I found with Tyredrome is the lack of parking space. Adding to the woes is the flyover right in front of it and the traffic jams during peak hours.

Default MRF Tyredrome (Chennai) - Reopening Soon!

The long wait is finally coming to an end.

I visited MFR tyredrome today and had a chat with the receptionist. They are re-opening for business this week (around 10th July 2013) and it would be advertised in all leading news papers. As of now, the final round of staff training are underway with their company owned cars (i saw a Merc , Audi Q7 , Hyundai i20 and an Innova).

They have added a lot more new services this time around and they are going to be using the most advanced wheel alignment (clamp-less) and balancing machines in the world.

I grabbed a services tariff card and as always they were very moderately priced with absolute top-notch professional approach, great ambiance and best equipped.

Address : New No : 2 Cathedral Road
Gopalapuram, Chennai 600086
Phone : 2811-1199 , 2811-0410
Email : mrftyredrome@mrfmail.com

Working Hours : Monday to Saturday : 8AM to 8PM , Sunday Holiday

Simply spectacular. I think one can avail most of the services in a single row and it would still be cheap. One has to account for 10% taxes, and it would still be cheap.

Am glad they are back with a bang.
