Yesterday i had taken my 2.5 years old Etios for Adavnced Paint sealant and Interior Germkleen plus. Fantastic job done by the 3M Baner team led ably by Tapas and Swapnil. I fell in love with my car again. I will post the pictures soon.

IMO paint sealant and engine treatments are placebo treatments and not at all worth the money. If the primary purpose of the underbody treatment is rust prevention, do you think it's really needed in a city with weather like Pune?

Most 3M stores are running on a very high cost ( both sunk and ongoing) and break even is not in the short term. If you observe closely most of these stores have business during weekends and festivals.
From a recent discussion with the owner of one of these stores, his investment is about 20 lakhs.

Why am I saying this? Because it will give an idea of what they are going through and need to do to sustain. Like a couple of members have rightly mentioned underbody rust treatment is essential only in areas such as Mumbai, Kerala etc having high humidity and salty air. Engine dressing IMHO is not required at all. And hoses and cables won't just break!!! That is plain nonsense ( didn't use a more colourful word to respect our rules).

As for paint protection the easiest sell is to say nowadays paint is softer and so needs more protection!!! If nothing paint technology has actually improved over the past few years. Paint protection can be achieved by something as simple as wax at one end of the spectrum to something like opti coat at the other end of the spectrum.

If you are willing to pay attention to your paint every couple of months a coat of collinite 845 is also good enough. Use a duster instead of cloth and use a quick detailer with a MF cloth for stubborn stains.

The matting that you get at 3M ( 248 per sq ft) is at least 3 times more expensive than a local equivalent. And I can say this due to some information that most of these products are now procured locally manufactured by Indian companies.

On a personal level I don't trust anyone without doing my due diligence. No offence to anyone here.

I clean my own car around once a month - it takes me a full day to wash, clay, wax and shine, since my car is parked in the open under a tree which likes to shed everything.

If you have a covered parking, then your interiors will remain in much better shape. For exteriors, it is true that wax attracts dust, but also helps protect the pain underneath.

Now, if you do not want to invest labour/ time into cleaning your own car then go for these:
Step 4-*********** *Removing tar & bug marks from body surface.
Step 5-************ Clay wiping.
Step 6-*********** *Car surfaced glazed using machine polish.
Step 7-*********** *Paint sealant synthetic wax applied all over the surface to get gloss and for protection of paint.

Keep in mind that if you want to do all of this on your own, it is possible but you will have to invest at least half a day for a big SUV like XUV5oo. Plus there is investents of shampoo, clay bar, micro fiber cloths (around 3-4), wax - depending on the colour of your vehicle and optionally a polisher machine.


The glass cleaning, engine dressing, etc. is not required.

Once you have this done, you can repeat the same every six months at 3M or elsewhere.

If your car will be in coastal areas, then anti-rust can be considered, otherwise ask Mahindra if they are already doing something to the car at the factory level.

The sun-films that you mentioned have a VLT of 50%. The traffic fellows will catch you whenever you cross Ghodbunder Road while coming back to Pune from Gujarat/ Rajasthan etc.

The 3M mats are reported cheaper outside - I have not found a place in Pune which sell them for the 50-70 Rs. per sq. ft. For a sedan around 30 sq. ft. is required. For your car, I expect perhaps 45 sq. ft. You will have to cut it and fit it on your own.

Had got the paint sealant done for my Punto ('The Red') from 3M car care Baner three weeks back. Wanted to review their job here but could not find time for the same.

First things first, 3M is expensive. But that is an informed decison you take. You go there well aware of the fact that their packages are among the more expensive ones. You then expect a good service and a good job from the team.

Well I must say that I was not disappointed by their job. Infact I should say, I was very satisfied with the professional attitude, the facility and also the final result. I was promised the delivery within 4-5 Hrs which was adhered to and the car was looking much better than what it was even on the delivery day.

For our swift I used to notice that whenever we got the car washed and waxed, the wax acted as a big dust magnet. However, 3Ms Wax on and Wax off leaves the car shining and smooth and no issues of dust clinging on to the car. Small scratches vanish. Infact a gentle man while backing his car had scratched the rear of 'The red' leaving a small superficial scratch which was perfectly removed after the treatment. Any deep scratches resulting in the actual removal of the paint wont be taken care but small superficial scratches and swirl marks do vanish.

3 M claim that the sealant will do its job for at-least one year provided certain precautions are followed, like not water washing the car daily and geting wax polish done once in a month etc.

They had an offer going on where in you get some discounts if you opt for any three of their packages. However, since I had no intentions of getting sun-film on my cars and also no intentions of going for the Mats (which I believe is expensive), I did not take the offer. I also opted out of under-body coating, since I don't foresee a requirement for any additional protection in a place like Pune at-least not till the next monsoons. What interests me is their claim of reducing road noise. I wonder if it really helps reducing the road noise.

All in all I am very satisfied with the outcome of paint sealant. 3M although expensive, is a very good option to keep your car sparkling specially for people who dont have the time and energy to wash and polish the car themselves.

Ive been looking to install those 3M type carpet mats in my Safari. Can you direct me to a store in Pune, where they sell the matting similar to the ones at 3M for the kindof price you mentioned ?
I would like to buy it asap.

Bohri Ali. Buy from there and take it to nana peth. There a fitter will cut and fit it. Else you may cut it yourself. Most shop owners are happy to help with tools for cutting.

I bought the noodle pattern mats for Rs. 60/ sq. ft. Used all of the 28 sq. ft. for our Cedia.

They are doing a good job. We had 1000 KM and 2600 KM trips in the last four weeks.
I have also posted information on where to buy those in Pune in the other thread.

Thank you for the review vibbs. I was in two minds about getting my 6 year old Santro a exterior make over. Your review made me take the plunge and now I sm very happy that I did it. Nearly all the swirl marks and minor scratches are gone and the car looks as good as new.

This is to share my recent experience with 3M outlet at Baner.

Yesterday, I went there for PPF to be done on my new ride. I got a quote of approximately 33k for bumpers and bonnet which I feel is high but then you are sure about the workmanship and the quality of materials. I had an idea of such kind of costs prior to getting the quote so was not surprised.

They suggested me to get the CR70 sun film done on my windshield. A small demo was given to me to show the reduction in heat after applying such a film. I was satisfied with the result and decided to go ahead with it.

Gave the car at 11am in the morning and got it back by around 8:30pm which is good 9.5 hours! Really appreciate the guys there to put up so much efforts to ensure that everything is done perfectly.

Workmanship is top-class! Especially, guy called Laxman is very skilled as well as passionate about his work. There was one case that the bonnet was longer than the standard raw material size of PPF but he made sure that it covers the whole bonnet my stretching to it's limit!

Overall I am very satisfied with the work done and special thanks to Mr. Tapas who was there personally all day checking the work on regular basis.

As somebody already said that 3M is expensive but then you can be sure of the quality of materials as well as workmanship. And I see it as VFM proposition. What matters in the end is satisfaction and I got it!

Also, I got a good discount on the whole amount.

Here are some pictures.

On a side not, getting stuff done from "nana-peth" will be cheaper but then you can not be sure of the outcome unless you know for sure about the shop.

I used to frequent "nana-peth" a lot for mods for my bike but then a have mix of experiences. Sometimes good sometimes very horrible.

Indeed, an excellent place for car detailing. I have just had my 2014 WagonR done up there.

Must say it really makes all the difference.

The owner of the establishment, Tapas , is an extremely enterprising and jolly person, who is extremely passionate about his work.

that said, costs DO tend to be on the higher side. But don't we tend to go the extra mile for our prized rides?

Really makes all the difference.

Cheers!
