Professional Car Detailing - 3M Car Care (Pune)-3m.jpg

A little background:
I was attending a certification class and the parking lot of the institution was set amidst a lot of trees on an open plot. Every evening for 5 days I had tree sap all over the car. This was worrying me and I wanted to take the car for a wash but just couldn't manage time to get it done. The usual car wash I visit is quite some distance away from my work place so I decided to try out 3M car care in Viman Nagar as I had been there before with my colleague.

I began calling them at 9:30 am but got no response (Didn't know their timings). As thorough professionals, they called me back on my cell as soon as they opened shop at 10:00am and gave me an appointment for 10:30am. I reached at 10:20 and requested for a foam wash. The store manager personally attended my car and recommended to go for a Power shine package since the tree sap wouldn't come out with foam and water. The cost was a meager Rs. 895/- + taxes. I gave a go ahead and a job card was made.

Powershine package includes:
- Washing the entire car.
- Vacuum cleaning the interiors, cleaning the carpets.
- Applying a layer of some product to get rid of tar and tree sap from the car.
- Polishing the entire car, the dashboard. Cleaning up and the engine bay and detailing it.

I got a call back at 12:15 confirming that the car was ready for delivery. I reached the place and was thoroughly impressed with the outcome. Their store manager Mr. Umesh explained all the details of the job carried out. I pointed out at a few minor scratches the car had and they were immediately cleared using rubbing compound. Total cost: Rs. 895 + Rs. 92.19/- tax. Also bought a couple of micro fiber cloth packets from them.

All in all a great place to get your car detailed in my opinion.

Some pictures:

No time wasted in hanging around, car was immediately taken in and vacuum cleaned:

Thanks for the update Kiran.

I have used their services in April. That time we had installed CR70 front windshield film and with that we got free interior detailing services. The experience was pretty good. Definitely recommend for everyone.

I have done Sunfilms, and Exterior and interior cleaning from here.
I must say, the work done was quite nice.

Also to quote the incident that happened, I happen to reach there late due to XYZ reasons at work and their workmen actually stayed back late until 23:30 to get my car done. But the rear quarter glasses weren't done well and sunfilm was coming out and even cut-out inappropriately. I told them the same and they offered to remove the same and re-apply. so I left my car there, and took it the next day morning.

Overall, a very nice job done and quite professional and polite guys. Definitely recommended. Price wise, they weren't giving much discounts, but offered more like Engine Coating and Panel cleaning free with the work that I got done. Altogether costed me 18k.

Owner was very aware of Team-BHP and was very ambitious of their store.

Some pics after the work (taken from mobile) in the below link. It also has rate split up. Mines a 6 year old car

Hey Dot,
I might also consider replacing the existing sun-films on my 6 y.o. octy. How would you rate their costing viz a viz other places?

And you know why I need that magic headlamps solution

I liked the center and they way they perform the work, but the pricing is slightly on the higher side.

I was looking at Exterior Restore Essential, I was quoted Rs 3800 + tax for my swift.

And highest package was Rs 4800 + Tax, i think this was the paint sealant program.

I am sure they do. Check the thread link at the end of my post, raj_5004 has scanned their price sheets.

What are magic headlamps? :-)

What's a cheaper option in ypur opinion?

I judge quality based on the infrastructure that an organization maintains. I am sure you agree that 3M has to pay quite a steep rent for the facilties that they have rented out. I think the prices are justified.

I compared the prices against all the poor products a car dealer applies and sells as "teflon coating" and thought this was actually cheap.

The price sheet does mention leather seat cleaning (and that too on per seat basis!). Great!
Just hope that these Mumbai 3M rates are valid across the country.

Here's what Magic Headlamps is all about : Linky

This seems to be a promising solution for older cars (I need it for the octy).
Last month, dot and myself had ventured to Poona Motors to check it out.
They had the product, but they were not sure about the costing, or the way to apply the same.

CR70 is pretty expensive. It costs 7k at 3M shoppe, slightly lower elsewhere. If you are planning to retain the octy, then it certainly makes sense.

Ditto.

Although the equipment seems top-class, they are a tad costly. Had inquired for RE35 (sides & back) & CR70 - got higher quotes even than Carex (Baner) which is supposed to be costly. However a 3M store offers more than just sun-films - will be sure visiting them in the near future.


Nice pics Kiran. Thanks for the thread.

A cheaper option would be the one suggested in this thread.
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...guide-335.html

Swift is a medium size car, right ? As per Raj's thread the pricing is Rs 3195 + tax for exterior restore advanced.


When I checked the pricing at this center they quoted me Rs 3700 or 3800 + tax for exterior restore advanced IIRC.

A lot of us are talking about the prices in 3M shop. Certainly their sunfilms cost more as I think their supply chain is messed up (I felt that they get every ordered sunfilm from their distributor). But detailing is top class and certainly command the quoted price.
