Yesterday near Marathahalli something very rare happened( for me-never happened). The omnipresent idiot in a 3-wheeler just out of the blue came from my left and tried to get in the space ahead of me. The moron clipped my left rear view giving me a huge scare. I wished i had Munna Bhai with me( or was one) and could give him a scare back with my revolver, but what to do
I stopped and saw - there was no impact he made with the side door and the minor blemish on the rear view was ok to digest.
However when i was cleaning the car in the morning- saw that a decent scratch, black marks, were made on the running board- above the wheel. It was heart breaking as the car is just 5 months old!!!
I got out the MEGUIARS SCRATCH X 2.0 and rubbed that on the marks, and MAGIC!!!!
The minor scratches are gone- little elbow grease and went away in a jiffy leaving the surface clear
SCRATCH X ROCKS!!!
Wonder what meguiars is thinking- going by the way our roads are, this product will sell in tons to those who care about their cars...they must bring this soon.
Sorry could not post pics-wanted to, but in my anxiety, forgot.

Good to hear that nothing major happened.

I have droped my car for second service today and asked 3M people to do interior detailing, let me see how it is. They charge 1K at dealer and Rs.700-800 at your home.

They do at your home also? Thats news, strange in fact as they claim to be only operating at the dealer!

If anyone has tried it, please post your review.
They are offering 10% discount on the website with no freebies.

Sorry for not giving full information. Home service is not by 3M but their employees do it on weekends to earn few extra bucks!. Since I am busy even on weekends opted for dealer.

Got my car back after interior cleaning by 3M. They charged 1065 including taxes and service charges. They left atleast 6-7 places (on door, dash etc) untouched and had to show them one by one to get it cleaned. Not worth the money you pay, DIY (or DIM) from next time onwards.

And how do you plan to do it? Detailers contain detergent, lubricating agents and wax.

Default OT: Polish / Wax for Black Activa

Hi Guys

Need help.

I am using Turtle hard wax for my car and I am very happy with the results. Seeing the outcome of waxing the car, my wife wants me to get a polish/wax for her BLACK ACTIVA.

Can anyone suggest me a good wax for the two wheelers please. Believe the body panels are fibre and Turtle wax might not be suitable for the same

Thanks a ton

Where did you pick up the Scratch X ? And have you tried the ultimate compound ? I was told that the Ultimate compound is even better

Cheers

As long as the panels look like the normal painted stuff, wax should work find on it. I use Turtle Wax on both my bikes ...and on the plastic side panels, fairing, etc. On the plastic parts (non painted surface), fairing visor, speedo, etc. I use F1 Dashboard cleaner.

In any case, I don't think there is a dedicated product for use on plastic/ABS parts which have normal paint like surface.
