Don't we have an option of not paying and returning the product if unsatisfactory? I once ordered a DV cable and confirmed the pay only when I was satisfied with the product.

A few highlights from the page you ordered

Leaving Negative or Neutral Feedback will not solve a problem, so please contact us if you have any questions or any complaints before leaving a Feedback

Policies:
image is just indicative of product it may change in size and color but will have same or better features.
This answers your question of using this on your car or not. You may please go ahead, it has better features!

If I read anything close to something like this I would never dare place any order from that seller. However, ensure that you leave the feedback if you've already paid and can't undo this buy.

Well the seller has a high score. 99+. The description also says "china Made". So to be fair send him a mail telling him that you will give a negative feed back and see what he has to say. In fact if you report a seller selling fake stuff, EBay will shut him down.

Now I know why it was not giving any shine to car at all. I bought this a year back from a car spare parts shop for Rs.150 and that time I didn't knew its fake. I applied it after wash but really there was no effect at all. Worst fake product ever! It just don't work. I never used it after few applications and bought waxpol silicon glade which is much better and at least gives goos shine with less effort. All the hard of rubbing this polish on car gone waste

Why is Formula 1 copied so much? I have never heard of a fake sonax / megs / klasse! Its not like that they are cheaper than Formula 1 (I can understand the case with Waxpol)

Yes! the paint will look great 'temporarily'! but after a week or so its back to square one!

Same is the thing with glazes! they just fill in everything and give an illusion of a perfect finish!

Since I use IPA after every polishing step, it helps in actual assessment of the paint surfave!(IPA removes all the fillers and oils etc.)

^Autogeek has DP clay in 'buy one get one free' offer - Buy One, Get One Free!

and as mkh says, UC is awesome! literally!!
(also autogeek has a special sale on megs and poorboy's products till the weekend)

You might wanna get a paint sealant while you're at it!

@Notorious - Regarding scratch removal

I think UC is like a universal compound capable of dealing with any kind of scratches.(which are limited to clearcoat of course)

But applying UC with hand on entire car is not easy job i think.
