Your options:

1. Master Polishers : Sheer value. Good job and lowest price. The "Indica" of this list.

2. Kamyo Detailers : Just got my Vtec done from them on Sunday (review coming up shortly). A little overpriced for what he offers. His charges are double of Master Polishers for a job that is 40% better. The "NHC" of this list.

3. Pervez (Mazda Motors) : Impeccable work...simply a 10 / 10. But his charges are high too. The "Benz" of this list.

3M polish is good. As per them, it lasts for around 30 washes after you polish (if you wash your car with detergent). If you use normal water for washing after polish, it may last longer. It is available in normal car accessories stores. But if you want 3M people applying it, you need to take your car to their dealership.

Default Has anybody here invested in a car polisher.

So i searched a bit and didn't get anything about a car polisher on TBHP as such. I am into furniture business and my car is generally parked about 20 feet away from where all the polishing takes place. Now all the melamine which my polishers spray on the furniture gets settled on the car along with dust and the car starts looking atrocious after a month. Then i do the rubbing and a polishing of the car and get it back to a decent shape.

Now i was browsing through ebay and came across this product eBay India: CAR POLISHER SHINER POLISHING MACHINE Hi-Speed 3200RPM (item 400104683657 end time 27-Feb-2010 20:28:34 IST)

Has anybody here invested in this. I have 3 cars facing the same fate. So this might come handy if it really works.

looks nice, but a handjob though slower & harder gives better results.

If you dont want to spend too much effort, and are not interested in using the paint as a face mirror, then this should be ok

random orbital polisher is what i would like to buy, but none is available in India and I don't want buy from abroad because of the 110V kinda issues.

i have seen this ebay item in few shops but it requires too much care where as random orbital one will be more forgiving.

At this rate you will end up having a grey car(I mean you'll see the primer after sometime)

I would recommend you invest in a good non-porous body cover - you need to prevent,not correct.

I saw one rounded head polisher at Karol Bagh. The asking price is Rs650 but I think there is scope for negotiations.It works through 12V socket and has two interchangeable heads, one an applicator (sponge) and the other as polisher (some kinda soft hairy cloth).
