Has anyone gone for Waxoyl paint protection lately ? Thanks
Honestly saying don't go for Waxoyl protection. It's simply hogwash. Once I had done it for my bike; got a sticker, that's all.

In the guise of Waxoyl protection, they are simply doing a wax job.

How can you go for autoglym products when they are not available here, unless you have a secret supplier, please advise.

Guys!! My new ford Ikon is getting scratches all over, not coz anyone is hitting the car or any accident, its just minor scratches over the sides . Could be coz of the cleaning guy using the cloth to wipe the dirt off.

Is there any polish available to rid of these scratches?? Have tried Turtle and all, but these would last only for a week or 2.

Have also heard, teflon is not good enough as dealers are making fool of customers by using the available polish.

BTW, is anybody aware of a Turtle retailer in Delhi/NCR?

Waxes and ploish helps you in filling up the scratches temporarily, I've heard many people saying 3M's scratch and swirl removal work is pretty good, I'm getting it done to my car soon. It will cost you 2.5k to 3k

Check my posts here: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/modifi...lear-coat.html (Any professional paint shop setups in Bangalore for ceramic clear coat?)

Yes, you do get many swirl removal products in the market, Get the swirl&scratch treatment done professionally for better results as it involves rubbing out a few microns of paint.

Contact the major A.S.S of your car in your city and enquire about the 3M swirl and scratch treatment. It will cost you 2.5k-3k + peace of mind and good results guaranteed!

I look to wash the car myself every week and use waxpol liquid wax, I have a lot of faith in Waxpol have been using it from ages starting from bikes and I think this is one good way to keep your car shining.
