They have mentioned that deliveries will start after 06-Jan only, so guess no one will be in a position to comment completely on the experience.

Ordered - yes.
They are to start shipping by Jan 6th, so cannot comment on that - but the payment process was smooth.

Hi I used Ultima Lube which came along with the elastrofoam. But you can use ONR also. Water will also do but make sure surface is well lubricated.

Planning to get a few things from BB Impex and perhaps elsewhere as well if the pricing is better.

1. ONR Wash and Shine. Price is around Rs. 700. Is there some better product or better price for this product elsewhere?
2. 303 Aerospace Protectant- 8 OZ. Price is around Rs. 900.
3. Clay bars (around Rs. 500 mark for 80 grams) from outside market

Our fellow member S_U_N had mentioned somewhere in this thread that he bought mothers clay bars at 450bucks per piece. At this price I would get 9 clay bars for 3990.

I don't know whether you will get genuine Mothers or Meguairs Clay Kit for much lesser. And from your post, I thought that you were okay with the kit than individual bars. Sanjay of bringingbest.in used to have individual bars, but right now he is out of stock.

Regarding the rest of the question, I am also looking forward for answers; i.e, how come we can get a single bar for 450/-?

I love my Mothers Clay but it certainly isn't worth Rs 3990.

Rather have a look at Bilt Hamber Clay available at DetailedClean dot in for 14xx Rs. I believe that is the cheapest clay you can get right now.
