Strangely- turtle website does not show the platinum series wax or any platinum products which are sold by Xenos in india
Is this a case of fake or just that discontinued products?
Planning to get Able Auto and Turtle to see which is better from Coimbatore. Got many friends in bangalore who travel there and seems like there is a Xenos shop there...

hey thats great- btw i see that you found able wax the best? Did you also compare with turtle wax and meguiars nxt?
I am thinking which one is the best among
1.Turtle Platinum
2. Able Liquid Wax
3. Meguiars NXT
Going by the price 3 should be the best( which is if higher priced- quality shld be better!!!)

I've read quite good reviews about Meguiar's NXT wax!

Check out Amazon.com reviews on the above mentioned products too!

I've compared abel auto's wax with formula 1 wax and the abel's wax impressed me more than the F1 wax, Turtle wax platinum and abel auto's wax are more or less the same,
Meguiar's NXT is the best wax avaiable in the market and it is priced at 1.7k here in India, A better plan would be to buy abel auto's wax. Priced right and stays long. Try getting the NXT wax from someone coming from the US.

EVO in bangalore has some turtle wax still available. I got the hard shell wax and the liquid- will try them tomorrow.
They also have armour all products.
Am trying to get some Meguiars stuff from Singapore, if not will get them from US for sure.
Will try out a few things and see which one is the best( if i find something better than my current products)
Is the wax supposed to be put just after the car wash or i can wash,polish and then wax?

I've heard about evo, where is it located? Meguiar's NXT wax is simply superb, not even close to turtle wax.

Turtle Wax products are shortly being launched imported by Xenos and they will be appointing distributors shortly. The goods have not reached all channels of distribution hence you don't see their information anywhere online. They are getting the latest range of Turtle Wax products. Very different from what most consumers have been purchasing in the past. I've seen the samples...amazing stuff. Even Meguiar's is expected to grow big in 2010 all around India once the tie-up of 3M & Meguiar's happens in India. Look forward to a full range of their products available everywhere!

3M products are available at many car accessory shops, Metro cash&carry has a wide range of 3M products, Turtle wax can be ordered from the above link.

P.S- The Turtle wax platinum wax available at the xenos website is a cleaner wax and is not meant to be used frequently.

Tell me more about the platinum wax- when you say not to be used frequently, what do you mean
Normally a wax should be applied around once a month-right?
How often do you apply the able wax? The turtle platinum should be applied with the same frequency or more?
BTW EVO is in Cambridge Layout, PM me if you need the number etc. Blue Raven on this forum is the owner in fact
THanks

The site says:
"Contains polishing agents to remove light oxidation and stubborn road film."
The wax which is available at the Xenos site is a CLEANER wax which contains abrasives to remove oxidation on neglected cars, It is just like sandpapering your car to remove the oxidised layer, I have a black car which is very prone to swirl marks and i stay away from cleaner wax such as F1 and TW platinum cleaner wax.

As to how often i apply abel auto's wax(This is a wax without any abrasives), May be once in 30-45 days, or whenever i notice water not gliding off the paint quickly or when ever i feel the surface is not smooth to touch. Manufacturers say "wax your car twice a year" but the thing is, Here in India, The sun glows to all its glory, Dust accumulates quickly and the wax layer rips off very very soon, I suggest you to wax your car with a normal wax(not cleaner wax) once a month.
And thanks for evo's details, i've sent him a Pm

Hi Megs lovers
I have finally come to the conclusion that megs prods are THE best amongst all choices so going to give them a try. Since they are cheapest only from the US, i have tried all my sources to get some of them from the US.
A friend who runs own business has told me he can try and get stuff from there along with his consignments that come( not sure as of now)
I wanted to offer this ONLY for TBHP friends- if i can arrange to get some of megs stuff from US, who all would need and what all products.
Please PM me with your request, i cannot assure but can try and get some
Please note the price will be little more than what we can get online from there, about 30% more cause of charges incurred etc. However it will still be waaay cheaper than what we get in india.Ex: Nxt Tech Wax may come for about Rs 1000..
Kindly note- i am not into selling etc and this is only to help out a few who want megs products so msg me only 1-2 things that you want not more.. and also cannot assure if anything would come.
