Is the MRF one on Dr. Radhakrishnan Salai near Music Academy still functioning? It used to be one of the better ones in Chennai.

Yes, they will do, but not before my eyes, isn't it?

And I never trust TASS, as I have some friends working there(???)

There is one in Annanagar. They do body wash, interior is cleaned with a blower, all rubber mats and washed with soap solution. Pretty good but generally full on saturdays. Sundays closed.

It is on the same road where Grand Sweets is located. From Grand sweets proceed towards Shanti main road. You will see a battery shop on your right. Right next to this battery shop building is the car wash place.

It is a normal car wash place. Dont expect it to be like MRF with automatic machinery, etc. But the job is pretty good and cost is very reasonable.

yes, I found the shop, but they are busy.

Went to Car Care, just opposite to AVM Studio. They charged me INR. 350 for car wash, underbody wash & interior. Not Bad at all.

Thanks Guys, will try others next time.

Yes, they do a fabulous job of the interiors. The car looks really fresh after a visit to the MRF. They use a high powered vacuum cleaner to clean the interiors and not the high pressure air like the petrol pump service station.

You have to call 044-28111199 and fix an appointment with them. They charge Rs 224/- including taxes.
