This thread looks like slowly shifting towards car care thread.

salil_kulkarni, I'll be only happy to polish your car if you're in Bangalore.

Sahil, once in six months polishing may not be a good idea especially if you're in Bombay.

v12, rain, not monsoon is still here in Bangalore. Yes you're are right it'll be a pain to clean them. But I get almost erotic pleasure in cleaning cars. Need to think it through to take this as business in future.

Here are the stuffs I use:

Inside: 3M Vinyl cleaner & restorer for plastic parts. Once in 15 days. Armorall leather Care for leather upholstry. Once a month
or as and when needed.

Outside: Pennzoil Blue Coral carnauba wax in liquid form. This is also for long wash/wipe swirl removing. Once in 15 days.
Eagle 1 carnauba cleaner wax and sometime Vivid Soft 99 wax for polishing. Wax polish is more of a protection than gloss.

Wheel: Armorall tyre foam. STP Son of a Gun for rubber. Armorall QuickSilver wheel cleaner for rims. This great product also repels brake dust by creating anti static coating.

Glass: Black and white news paper. *

Finally for wiping: Little bigger than a hanky.. Chamois leather from Stanley. Expensive proposition as they cost 600/- for one

Lets park our cars with Rudra and let him "reach heaven" (actually would say something else but with due respect to board rules)

How often u suggest i do the polishing? I get it done from this guy who uses that machine round brush thing with 3M products not sure what all he uses. As for the Chemois leather i have been using that for quite a while now but i dont really like it that much coz it leave like a whitish coat when u wipe with it.

Hey Rudra,

You mentioned which brand your tyres are, but (I don't think) not the size. Did you go for the 205/60/15??

Back to the wheels, I like that chrome finish, really suits a black car, more so the Optra. What it needs now are some dark tints to complete the effect....that is the "PIMP DADDY" effect !!

As for the 16 spokes, well, those are not my first choice, but then everyone has their own likes and dislikes.

And Rudra...my car is waiting for a good spit polish when you come down this weekend

205/50R15

Phew! I was expecting much more tough comments from you rtech.

50R15Dark tints are on the wish list. Which one to go for? I don't like those vertical scratch marks after a point of time.

Ok I'll do the polish but let's fix the rate first

Well, if you want to splurge...you could go for tinted glass instead of tinted paper!

Tried a Mondeo before putting them for my car. Didn't feel that bad. And almost zero noise.
I don't want tinted glass cause I won't get the OE stuff.

Holy Cow!! You are Team-BHPs Bling man....Rudra, all you need is dark windows, really dark sunglasses (even at night), yellow suits, L-O-O-S-E pants that start from your knees, thick chains and yes...oversized Tees. Dont forget to have usher or juvenile pumping bass out of your potential subwoofers - You have it made!!

Haha, just kidding. Your Optra looks perfect. Multi spokes rock on mature cars.
