Nice initiative. This can serve well for quick references only. But for comprehensive reviews / feedback, I would still recommend to create a new thread.

Well, I can name the Mahindra 1st Choice as doing a good job professionally and they are reasonable on the charges for service. They do all the cars and the workshop I do my work at is based in Thane, in kothari compound, near Tikuji ni wadi. In fact this Kothari compound has a lot more service stations and I think most of the cars can be serviced there.(I have stuck to Mahindra 1st choice but will not be averse to trying out others.)

Come on people from Mumbai [:)].

Really strange to see people are not contributing to this thread in particular which will help at least friends from Mumbai.

Or you never ventured out at all for any work [glasses]

Ill do the honours -

Car detailing centres:-


* 3M Car Care, Borivali - Experienced their service

They do Car detailing services, 3M sun films, Meguairs detailing products, Car cover & neck cushion. I liked the professional way by which they handled my car. Attention to detail was fantastic, they dint leave a single corner or crevice, all the dust, dirt & muck was cleared out. Adequate parking with 4 covered bays to clean & details cars. Pressure wash, foam wash, detailing, etc. is done in one roof. Genuine branded 3M products are used. They dont use diesel to remove stains or tar marks.

BUT, pricing is a bit on the higher side. I would have preferred if the car was taken on a hoist & the underbody cleaned. Instead, they use a "L" shaped nozzle to clean the underbody. I could see that the suspension springs & the area around that was not clean. No other complaints.

Pricing depends on the package you choose.

All nooks & corners of my car was cleaned well. In the interiors, they just vacuum the floors & seats. Dust on the dashboard was not cleaned.

Contact Information

- Name of the contact person: Bansi/Rekha
- Phone numbers: 9820700386/9920700386
- Postal Address: 3M Car Care, Shop No. 2 to 7, Aditya Building, A-1 Extension, Chikuwadi, New Link Road, Borivali (W), Mumbai - 92.

* Concepto Carz Spa - Experienced their service

They can be actually called as "budget" car detailers!

They offer complete packages for car exterior / interior detailing which includes waxing, ozone treatment, steam cleaning, nano treatment, etc. They will also do piecemeal jobs like exterior body wash with underbody.

They are complete value for money. Their charges start from Rs. 350 for exterior cleaning! The equipment (tools, cleaning liquids, waxes etc.) that they use are all branded. Situated in a nice place (Hiranandani, Thane) with adequate parking & no traffic!

Workmanship though good but not the best. They cleaned my car very well but left some places like the inner spokes of alloys. I would have appreciated that attention to detail. But for the price, you cant ask for more! Also, pressure washing is done in a different place & you have to drive your wet car back to the store for wiping.

Pricing is cheapest among all the other reputed brands. They charge around Rs. 350 for complete exterior wash with underbody, Rs. 950 for exterior + interior package, Rs. 1200 for exterior protection treatment, etc.

I have got my car exterior cleaned from them. I have seen my friend's cars detailed by them a couple of times.

Contact Information-

- Name of the contact person: Shardul
- Phone numbers: 9004091219 / 25316060
- Postal Address: Shop no-9, Avila building, Hiranandani Estate, G B Road, Thane (W)

* Ron & Walters - Never been there

Got a pamphlet from a car detailing outlet named Ron & Walters. They are located in Andheri which is pretty close to my place.

They do interior/exterior detailing & the normal paint renovation/polish, etc.

Details can be found here -

Ron and Walters

It looks pretty expensive to me though & maybe a good place for premium cars.

Painting/denting

Ravi Auto garage, Chandivali/Powai - 9920516907/9833703027/9869516907

This is a very small workshop but their rates are economical & quality of work is good. My office is very close to that, so you can come over & see my car to see their work.

Please note that this is based on just my personal experience with my two cars, Innova & Punto.

Any specific reviews for carnation mumbai?
Asking this because i have complimentary coupons with the HDFC motor insurance.
Considering this as a new vehicle any minor problems would be covered by mahindra's A.S.S.
So with these coupons is it worth to go all the way to chembur to encash those coupons?
