Default Speed Car Wash - Powai, Mumbai

Went to this place today after I got to know from my mechanic. The car was due for a wash after the monsoons + being the open garage for a week.

I was told that the guy had recently started this; infact less than a month. Landmark - just before Sealand Restaurant @ L&T Gate 6, when you come from Andheri to Powai.

Disclaimer :: I have no affiliation. Just that I clicked a lot of pics as I was getting bored.

Likes:
  • A neat place which is very easily accessible
  • Have a decent lounge to wait while your car is being worked upon
  • Hard working chaps, listen to you without any qualms
  • Not too expensive, quality justifies the cost
  • They have a machine to do underbody wash to compensate for no ramps / lifts
  • They also use an air freshner (standard inclusion), I liked the fragrance. You may need to check it before they spray.
Improvements:
  • No card payment yet
  • Though honest, I doubt they have the technical knowledge of Subject Matter Experts
  • They use a polish for the leather / doorpads which gives a nice shine. But it could prove to be a bit sticky, especially on the steering / gear knob.
I'll attach the pics of the water service + paint treatment done today. For the 2000/- I paid, the quality is good. I wouldn't take an expensive car there though.

Car wash (Gold) = 500/-
Paint treatment = 1600/- (discount of 100/-)

Door pad

Disaster - this is something which leaked from the overhead pipe in the underground parking. Noticed this a bit late and am sure the paint has been damaged already. The wash didn't remove it and I was suggested the paint treatment. This has been rubbed off but I could see the impressions in certain angles. Don't want to blame the guys as the damage was already done.

Buffing in progress

Those scratches were 'gifted' by someone some time. The paint had cracked too; the insulation tape is the temporary fix to prevent the paint peeling off further while wash & wipe.

The paint treatment removed all the scratches.

Wash after buffing. Strange as I never had this done by anyone else.

I have been experiencing this problem with the guys at MASS. They wash and polish the car in such a manner that the steering wheel, door pads, Headunit buttons etc drip of polish!

Every time I brake, I come forward as the seats are coated with the polish making the surface slippery. I have told them million times to not polish the car but this does't get communicated to the working guys down there

It takes me 3 washes of the interiors to get it in normal state. With blazing afternoon sun, it is impossible to drive the car after I get from service due to the over-polishing efforts on the dashboard.

I just visited this place today!! I was looking for an ATM in the area before collecting my car from Maithri Motors. Happened to walk past it, dropped in to check out what it was. Haven't noticed it before this.

There was a guy with an XUV when I went in. I might soon give him my car for an exterior and interior clean up.
