Default Formula1 Wax availabel at Big Bazaar, Pune

Formula 1 Wax is available in Big bazaar outlet in Fatima Nagar, Pune. I have checked looked like genuine to me. They are marketed by Nagpur based company and cost is 199 Rs. There is 10% discount on automotive accessories there. So the cost comes to 179 Rs.

I have a box purchased from Nana peth (around 200Rs) and it looks almost as same as displayed in big bazaar.

Today cleaned my Linea's black portions using interior polish from "Petrowax", its no big brand but works quite well and here are the pictures to give you an example.
You can get it if you want costs just 110 rs for this size bottle and works for so many times. I have used it 4 times and dont think the bottle is even halfway down.

nitinralli,

I bought it in a car accessories shop in Dwarka, New Delhi. They also had just 1 bottle available.

Default Fake Formula wax!

Asked a friend to get me Formula1 wax. This is what he got!
First of all it says "Formula USA", there is no registered trademark, print is all uneven.
100% fake.

Raccoon,

Attached are a few pics. Just clicked them this morning, when I finished using the wax

From the looks of it, they are two different 3M products.

Cheers,

I need an advice for removing adhesive marks from My swift’s dashboard. These are hard white coloured marks left where car freshener was glued in. Some of the adhesive remained on the dashboard and has become very hard due to sun and heat. How to remove it without damaging dashboard’s finish?

It seems there is 3M Premium Liquid Wax without UV protection (which I am having) and 3M Premium Wax-Liquid shown in gpa's picture with UV protection. MRP on both are the same Rs.80/-
