What I like:
  • They are authorized by VW, Honda, Tata and Maruti so they are well versed with the job required.
  • They were very prompt in their reverts to my queries. The duration between my query and job done was 02 days.
  • Apparently they claim that they do not always accept attending to cars at their office as they prefer it being done at the authorized service center so I was glad they accommodated my request.
What I don't like:
  • Work is done in the open in a compound and not in a shaded area.

over these years, my Xylo's windshield has developed many swirl marks and minor scratches. During night when the light from opposite side hits the glass, the light scatters and irritates me. I was planning to get the glass polished since a long time, but couldnt get time.

Last Friday I called Mr.Paresh and spoke about my matter, and even took ref of TBHP. At first he asked to bring vehicle to his shop during weekdays, but then upon my request he agreed to attend it on Sat (next day) itself.

Next day I drove to his place, though I couldnt meet Mr.Paresh. A technician, with his tool kit, started working on my car. The entire process took less than an hour. The guy used the pink paste he called "diamond cutting paste" and rubbed using the rotor with pad. I had one deep scratch, which he even tried with zero# emery paper, but it couldnt be solved, which was ok for me.

Earlier I had thought that in final phase, he may apply a polishing liquid kinda, but he didnt do so as not required. Which means that just gently scratching with pad will remove the swirl marks and superficial scratches. My glass had lot of rainbow marks possibly caused by wiper rubbing, which are gone now. The final results were good. I generally change the wiper blades every 6-7 months, one just before monsoon.

Some pics during the process, but I couldnt capture the final results.

Price: he quoted Rs.900 (+tax if bill reqd) for front windshield. Mr.Paresh on phone threw a good offer - Rs.1800 - front and rear windshield, and side glasses for free, but I didnt I selected the earlier quote itself. this guy also offered headlight polishing for Rs.600, which I denied as to get it done some other day.

Had a bad experience recently with them.

The initial setup call was good. Paresh asked me to schedule a visit giving one day's notice. Did that.

Showed up on time the next day. No technician was there at the time of the appointment. After a lot of back and forth with local guys there it seemed the technician was on his way.

Amidst this, I tried to reach out to Paresh through calls and SMS. He neither picked up the calls nor responded to the SMS.

After an hour or so, a technician arrived. My front windscreen had some scratches - the polishing would not remove them. The glass looked cleaner, but the scratches didn't really go. They claimed this was all they could do. I wasn't ready to pay the full amount that Paresh had mentioned over the phone because of such a shoddy and incomplete service. Even after 2 hours Paresh remained incommunicado.

The techs kept me on the hook for another 20 minutes 'trying' to reach Paresh.

In the end, they agreed to accept lesser money and I left.

Terrible experience. Not recommended.

Inspite of the above negative experience of a member, I decided to try this out for my i10. The front and rear glass were full of micros scratches and faint swirl marks as the cleaner used dirty water/ cloth to clean it for a couple of years. A layman could have commented that the glass was scoured with scotch brite.

A pic of the glass before the work commenced:

The process itself was straightforward. Called up Paresh as per the number on this thread, fixed up a time slot (1 Hour is NEEDED for a small car, don't try to rush this as I'll explain further. More time may be needed for a larger car) and dropped him an SMS with my name, and time slot that we confirmed on, and car details.

We reached at the appointed time, and it is not easy to miss the technician standing outside the place since he wears a deep blue tee shirt boldly proclaiming "Glass Polish India". (Refer Pic).

The work started pronto. The steps involved are as follows:

The glass is cleaned with water and a squeeze.

1. White Paste (Micro abrasion paste I believe) applied as a thin layer over the glass.
2. Water is sprayed over this to keep things cool.
3. A rotary tool with a large pad is used to scour the surface of the glass. The technician knows the right amount of pressure to apply. Too little will have no effect, too much will cause the glass to get very hot.
4. Once a few passes of the large pad are done, the glass is inspected to check in case any large scratches are left.
5. A smaller pad is used for specific places or singular scratches in a similar way.
6. The work is more of start and stop, as the glass must not overheat during the process. This would of course be harmful. Thus this job cannot be rushed and will be done as per the technicians timing.

The process was repeated for all the glass panels in my case.

Note: The pads and paste seemed extremely abrasive in nature. It is a testament to the technician that they manage to do this work so smoothly.

The end result: Well, we spent a small amount to try this out, as the alternative was a replacement of the front and rear glass. Even with insurance claims, it would have costed more as own payment, plus the cost of lost insurance bonus.

The car which we avoided using at night, now feels very comfortable.

Is it as good as a new sheet of glass? No, of course not. If this is your expectation, do not go here.

Does it provide an extension to the glass panel under focus? Of course. We believe we should be able to get another 2 to 3 years easily with this polished glass.

Do avoid this if you think it will clear chipped glass or deep scratches, it can only faint them out, but not remove. Also, if your glass has a crack, then you cannot do this.

Paresh spent a few minutes answering my questions, but I guess as a working person must work as well, he had to take off. He assigned two of his other guys to interact with me whenever needed. The location is very easy to find, sandwiched between two popular hotels near Chembur station.

Overall, I would recommend this to anyone looking to try out a low cost solution instead of replacing their glass right away.
