Default Inexpensive place for car polishing in Mumbai?

Dont want to spend too much money on waxing the Indigo. Is there any place between Bandra - Churchgate that would do an *acceptable* wax job on the Tata?

Thanks

I think any car accesory dealer can do it for you. Will charge you around 900 bucks, but the job will be good and he will use a machine.

I know only of Car Spa who deal only with treatments for the car. Exterior and interior. For an Indigo, they charge about 1200 bucks, I think. I know they operate out of the parking lot at Inorbit Mall, Malad. They used to have a spot behind Eros theatre also, I'm not sure if they do anymore. They do a fairly decent job though.

Otherwise, car accessory dealers and some petrol pumps are always there.

@GTO: for an inexpensive place, you can trust any good car accessory dealer. the price will be in the range of 900 - 1500. no idea specifically for the indigo.

i got this done for my OHC for 1200/- at the service station-cum petrol pump on cadell road, shivaji park, dadar. this was almost 10 months before.

i was worried about the swirls, but this chap had a wonderful way and the finish was good for me.

in fact some of the car accessory shops in opera house area will do a good job too in case you are not looking at that pampering finish as required for a mercedes.

Well, try out Manmohan accessories at Shivaji Park. Im sure you must be knowing that place. I've tried it recently, and was content with the quality of the job.

Thanks guys! Will check out the cadell auto pump and a local accessory store. @ Ported : Car Spa is more expensive than 1200 for a sedan. Atleast the last I checked with them?

Knowing how particular you are, go over to Pervez (Mazda Motors) only. Numbers are 2353.7560 / 2493.1708. His quality of worksmanship is par excellence.

Right behind 4 seasons, at Tardeo, in the same compound. For your Accord, he would charge about 4 - 5 K. But is worth every penny. I just got my C220 waxed by him and its better than what Auto Hangar could have managed.

Can the same info be given for Delhi. I have a Corolla H4 and am tired of do it myself fortnightly cleaning of leather interiors. Perhaps leather cleaning/polishing, painting (comparable quality of Toyota dealers but cheaper), and waxing/polishing.

I could suggest to you somebody who's the best in the business in Delhi when it comes to detailing but I'm afraid he's anything but cheap.

Then maybe there are more options. e.g. A friend of mine used to call a guy at home every month and would pay Rs 100/- to him for all car polish (Esteem), wheel cleaning, interior cleaning and polishing. Well its been 4-5 years since then but this kind of service would be nice to get.
