@CrazyDiablo, what was your question ?

If you want references to detailers, then (IIRC) Jaggu had given one reference, of a person who can come & do the detailing at your place.

Even if Mohan is not available, you can approach any good painting shop and get the job done. I did waxing twice myself and didnt bother with Mohan.

I am highly impressed. The car interiror is spotless, and all plastics have been coated with an Armor-All type coating, which makes them shine with a deep black sheen. The carpets are fresh, all nooks and corners really squeaky clean. Only the roof liner could have been done better, it still looks a little grubby.
The engine bay is astoundingly clean and shiny. It really looks like a car one has collected from the showrooms, not a speck of dust or grease, all plastics deep black, all metals ultra clean. I think this is going to be on my service lists from now on.
Let me see if Maruti can provide the same for the Baleno.

I suggest you try Mohan's service or 3M Car Polish services, either one seems good ones.

I havenot tried Mohan's service from last 6 months, recently my driver has washed Innova with Amway car shampoo and then dried the vehicle fully and applied Amway Silicon Glaze which is car Polish material starting from doors to other panels on exterior of the vehicle and rubbed with white cotton waste which we had purchased from friend's shop, it worked like wonders, Blue Innova shines very much especially Metal parts. Next time when we do Polish I will make sure I find material which would give better shine on bumper too!

Next month after 30,000km service I am planning to have Mohan Polish Innova once!

Regards,

Ravi.

Who is next best in Pune and how much do they charge?
Thanks
We've heard only good things about them. But yes, they are very expensive.

New car detailer in market!! Thats me.. got the polisher a few days back. Got all the polishes / rubbing compounds from the sole 3M distributer in AP. Got a little bit of training too from that guy on the products as well as the polisher machine.

I have already done 2 cars. 1st my Innova and then my Fiesta.

There was v very much noticeable difference after the buffing and polishing- Specially with the Fiesta (coz thats dark in color - Maroon). To see the difference, I had first dome Half bonnet and woooaaah. All the swril marks had gone and the half bonnet looked much shinier!!! Sorry.... Couldnt take the pics though...

Will be doing my swift soon!!

Default car detailing

I want to get car detailing done for my zen. I have two options:
1) I read about Mr.Mohan in one of the threads and contacted the given number. charges - Rs.1000
2) Mr.Shashi from the care care club (THE CAR CARE CLUB). The charge here is Rs.2250 for exterior detailing, and Rs.700 for interior detailing (Total Rs.2950). They are authorised dealers for 3M and Dupoint and claim to do detailing for many car dealers.

There is a huge price difference. But, from the looks of the site of the car care club, it looks to be of very good quality.

Can someone help me out here? Has anyone got the detailing done at the car care club - if so, feedback please.

I have seen some good feedback about Mr.Mohan's work too and thats the reason for the confusion.

Please help me in deciding by providing your valuable feedback.

Default Detailing in Mumbai

I have had the best experience for detailing with MASS.

My car was in my office parking for a week, I returned to find it covered in cement splatters, which had hardened and set over 1 week in the sun.

Everyone I approached, including the place at inorbit mall, acted like they had never heard about cement splatters on a car, were unsure about how it could be removed, and quoted extra for the job, apart from regular polishing charges. On top of it, no one was wiling to give a guarantee for whether the cement would come off, and whether the cars finish would be scratched.

I finally approached MASS, to my surprise they acted like it was no big deal, said it would get cleaned up in a regular 3M polish job, cost Rs.1500/-, no extra charges, and assurance of no damage to my finish. The end result was perfect.. no sign that there had ever been any cement on my car. And I also got the interiors cleaned and shampooed for just Rs.500/- extra.

And no, I am in no way affiliated to Maruti, am just pleasantly surprised by their service standards. The job was done at Spectra motors, Malad workshop.

Default Upholstery Cleaning For Innova In Mumbai

Am looking for a place in the eastern suburbs (upto Chembur/Ghatkopar) or
western suburbs (upto Andheri) to get the seats of my innova dry/steam cleaned.

Need someone who wont leave the oft quoted. moldy smell in the car.

Most of the articles in this thread deal with polish. hence a separate post.

Thanks

Hi. If you want to try a DIY, try this:
take a sponge and some PRIL. dip a corner of sponge in PRIL mixed with water. Wipe the seat with this corner and then wipe it off with a clean damped cloth. It worked for me and the seats look like professionally cleaned.
