I know that place but haven't been inside.
I'll check it out this Saturday.

What other car care products they have?

Can such a rim bend / go out of whack more easily than one with more spokes?

white is more easier than black as dirt and brake dust can be cleaned of regularly but damage to black paint finish cant be done up easily often.

Can anybody tell me where in Bangalore I can get a regular supply of brake dust (spray can type) cleaner?
Rudraji,

With your level of car-care, don't you think its time you invest in something like this :

Rehaan, problem is not with washing. Brake dust coats the spoke walls and doesn't go easily with washing.
In my case it's even more pronounced because spokes are sitting very close to the brake assembly.

Most of the things frequently discussed here like 3M , Formula 1 stuff. Also Bosh tools such as drills, dremmel, Bosch Aquatec washer , spanners , screwdriver sets , perfumes , floor mats and backseat organizer , steering grips , microfiber cloth.
Gosh I now sound like sales man of Spar

Big negative points
(1) Despite some 15 - 20 sales aisle there are always huge queues if you have less then 10 items then it is OK you can go to express till that is first one. On weekend expect to wait for 15 - 30 mts for billing weekdays are slightly OK.
(2) They think everyone comes in a car so allow you to take trolly to MLCP but not to main gate using lifts , So does not work out for me as I always walk .
(3) TO increase footfalls in Lifestyle they have built Spar at the top level and one has to go through Lifestyle if escalaters are used.They use a lot of polythene bags and put ties on them, Very eco-unfrinedly as lot of polythene is wasted.

(4) Lifestyle closes at 10:00 but spar remains open and Lifts and escalator close down too so you need to come out holding shopping bags in hand through backdoor.

Designed by some stupid moron who thinks that grocery shopper while entering is a potential customer for highend goods at Level 1 and 2 and potential thief while exiting.
