Default Car polish

Hi all,
Last month bought one Indica-DLG-TC and now want to use teflon coating for protection from minor scratch.

Somebody told me that wax polish is better.
Can you tell me which one I should go for ?
As I understand, I need to use the wax polish may be every month. But, for teflon I don't need to.

Waiting for your suggestions.

Regds,
Samir

Teflon is a coating ... get it done from a DUPONT shop. Dupont has various paint protection programs/schemes u could look into that. Teflon coating comes with warranty and free retouching.

You could your car WAXed at the local car wash/petrol pump/garage, they charge Rs100.

Teflon coating is nothing but more or less Wax Polish & actually has no qualities to prevent scratching. More on this can be found in these threads about Teflon, Polish & Car Care:

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/techni...ally-help.html

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/techni...n-coating.html (What Exactly is Teflon coating)

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/techni...car-clean.html (For All Car Lovers - Keeping Your Car Clean)

The last thread is a recommended read for anyone interested in keeping their cars exteriors in prim & proper shape.

couple of years back, I bought a Wax and Wash polish from penzoil and it was a very convenient to use and at the same time the result was good. But I could not get it any more any where in Chennai. Can some one tell if me if this product is still available in India?

hey samir..
depending on how many scratches you have on your car.. lets say u have a few minor ones.. just get it buffed at a paint shop and then get it teflon coated, it forms a coat to prevent scratches not remove the existing ones. after that just use formula 1 wax when you start seeing those circular rings.. hope this helps . i guess your car is black too..
later
