Now Imagine the same tire supporting the same car with more weight, spinning on all types of surfaces with additional passengers and flexing every nano second as you pass the road surface.

I see absolutely nothing wrong in climbing up the tire and cleaning the roof as long as you are not wearing spiked shoes to cause a puncture!

I do the same for the Ertiga which is again taller and has a longer roof line.

easily in Bangalore in convenient sizes. Cheers
Can anybody point to a source for ONR or UWW in Mumbai/Navi Mumbai. Or any online sellers?

ProKlear has introduced an Xtreme variant of their waterless wash and claims to be at par with the ones available in the market. Although i havent tried ONR or UWW but have been pretty satisfied with the normal RAW version.

UWWP is better than ONR. Especially when it comes to removing water spots and bird poop

Don't have high expectation on the efficacy of the products. You will be happy

I have used these products on my Ertiga. This set is a VFM product.

The wax was good to apply and clean .
Result was also excellent but had very short life (1 week).

so i moved to other brand car care product.

How do you use this thing? Step by step directions anywhere? You just mix it, put it in a spray bottle and spray on the car, and wipe down?

I was checking out the UWWP online and got sidetracked by the CQuartz product. Looks good. I guess I should search: it may be mentioned in threads on protectants and sealants.

For a normal quick wax n wax (quick detailer) you can add 15ml UWW to 500ml water and use that. Thats what I use weekly. 500ml solution suffices for three times on my Vento.

Check out Ultimate Detailerz page in this forum. Mohsin has been using this for sometime now here in Bangalore.
