How much (time and money) did it take to get that Carbon Fibre like look? Is it permanent or more like a decal that sticks to the body? Can it be removed in the future/come off while pressure washing the car?
Lighting is a little bad, but here you go:

Lovely pics fundagenie. I was quoted 6200 for 3D Kagu in Mumbai. How much did you get it for? Also some more details about polymer coating would be highly appreciated.

While we are sharing pics of our adorable rides, here's one from me:

What's polymer coating. I believe it is same as teflon coating. How much does it cost?

Where did you get the 3D Kagu mats and its cost please.

Thanks all. Can't quote all of you in a single post from android app. hence posting as a new reply

The mats cost me rs5750 and the polymer coating 4500. The coating is provided by a shop near to my place. The product seems to be developed by a chemical engineer from this place and currently in US. And runs the business from there. A lot of satisfied customers was the reason that made me go for it. Am not sure if it is similar to teflon. Might be similar to the paint protection treatment from 3M.

Now that is one hell of a neat job! The purple looks very attractive and the glossy finish is really eye catching I wonder how the Black XUV will look with this coat.

Hi All

I just booked an XUV w6. could the owners give me a feedback on the tinted glass in terms of heat reduction. Would i need to invest in an extra sun film purely fro the purpose of heat reduction or would the existing ones be good
