No i am afraid i didn't. Next time i go there, i will check (since i have two free services to avail)

Their customer care number is 97425 12345. I called them up to ask what products they use. The guy said "its all imported". A little more persuasion and i heard some name like "Ferracala" (from UK, allegedly) and Vista for paint rejuvenation. I remember seeing some Vista products in Food World!!

In interior cleaning, they clean the roof, upholstery, dashboard, sides of the doors, everything, including the insides of the boot. As per the CC guy, its an All Purpose Cleaner from Valvoline. Cost me nearly 700 bucks.

They have different rates for different sizes of cars. Apparently, Lancer is one size bigger than OHC

I dont think they use off-the-shelf products though.

I have some pics of the car in better light. I'll upload them tonight.

Yes. I have used few times. It won't damage the paint. Diesel also works well.

Pavan, just post his contact. Rather than PMing so many, it'd be useful to know people who can do this kind of good work.

i have a 6 month old car and i guess i have goofed up royally by using a newspaper to clean the car (when it was wet) after waterwashing it (to avoid watermarks). today when i saw my car there were lots of fine (very fine actually) scratches. can i get them removed or are they here to stay?also, courtesy of using a chamois cloth at midday, i have lots of very small rubber spots (something like millions) all over my paint and rear windscreen.
what do i use to get rid of it?
can i wait for 20 days?(car service due) or should i do it immediately?
is anyone aware of a good bodycare specialist at chennai?
also, there was something like a bird dropping on the roof (at an inconspicuous place) which has left a dark stain even after a water wash, how do i get rid of it?
lots of users in this thread have recommended turtle wax for car care, but i have not found it at any shop so far in chennai.if anybody is aware of such a store here, please pm me.

Can you please guide us on where to purchase it from. you could post the website or the contact details of people/showrooms who sell it.

Pavan,
Still waiting for your contact details of that "8hr" polisher.

I was reading the thread from the start when i encountered the following statement(on page 13)

So is that one shouldn't use Dusters like the Jopasu Duster, which has got excellent reviews from tbhpians or some other locally available dusters to dust-off the Dust on the car
