Thanks for missing me tho...
You're depriving us of your valuable experience. Bad.

BTW the 3M products you are referring to- are these the ones sold in india? I have seen 3M wax, but not the rubbing compound.
The 3M rub comp is used at detailing centers and also sold in the US. Scratch X is cheaper than 3M rub Comp.
3M i feel is a leader and tad better quality than Meguiars in all products but costs more( from the US). Have not tried the indian prods, but surely they will be lesser in terms of quality than their US brothers.
MKH, I'm talking of Bruises that of Paints of other bodies like Cars. I also referred to my friend's i20 accident with a Green Auto, check that.

Moreover, 3M's Finesse-It is the rubbing compound I'm talking of. Comes in a black plastic box and easily available. Buddy, I'm not sure of their quality comparison with their US siblings but they're one of the best in India.

Which dealer was it Latheesh? Sundaram- at Bangalore?

Dude- megs is already avail in india- its through a few dealers and its 3 times more expensive
Since 3M has taken over, they will sell it now. The guy thinks you are running a detailing center, normally they sell to bulk purchasers only
Even then, surely its going to be min 2 times costlier than from the US which means that the same cost as from 20 north. Why i say this- its 50% more in Canada, which is next door
Anyways, will call up this guy on monday and lets see what he has to say

u might as well tell them you are running a small detailing center- that way you will surely qualify for a rebate and maybe distributor cost!
Looking at your consumption, i am tempted to take a dealership and find a few like you in bangalore, better than the boring s/w job

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
Any help guys PLEASE
