Wow I thought the jacuzzi was only exclusive in hotels. Cars also having their share these days.
Super cool and the menu for the car cleaning is simply splendid.

Don't they wash it on request?

Guys who wish to try the washing center I recommended please be prepared to be in line. They have 4 bays out of which one is just for body wash while the remaining are always jam packed with a big queue.

The one thing to be worried abt in an auto car wash is gradual damage to the paint - swirl marks, gloss reduction etc, or so I've heard.

Came back to Bangalore after a long drive. The car is covered with mud/tar stains. Would like to know any good place in Bangalore where I can get a good car body/underbody wash done? I am not looking for an automatic car wash.

How much will this cost?

Why dont you leave it for a wash at a company service station? They do a fantastic job and even polish it after the wash before handing it back. Such a wash costs Rs 250 atleast for my Swift at RNS Y'pur.

hey man been to MRF car wash before... I use it only when I go clubbing and my cars filthy and need a quick wash ... Otherwise I think its a waste of money and leaves swirl marks on your car if you use it too often... I just get my car washed at the HP petrol bunk next to my place.. They pressure hose it and clean it really well but it takes time !!

Very true !! I gave my car 4 times for wash to Sundaram service station in last two months they charged me only once just 225 Rs. They do a nice car wash and car looks amazing i have asked them not to polish as i wanted to use my own Car' beauty kit Not sure why they only charged once.

I have a similar Washing machine from Karcher [how to type an ummlaut ?] which has mighty force. I remember the sales person telling me at the time of delivery that one should never put any part of the body in front of the jet of water, there is chance of you breaking that part.

It is really effective to clean the stubborn dirt under the body. Had cost me around 50k when i purchased it few years back.

So anyone, wants a power wash for their car in Pune ?
