I have been to pitlane and they have never waxed my car. The last time I went there was a month back. I asked the guy who runs the place and he told me they never wax any car there. The final round after the washing is blowing air to get rid of all the water beads. There were a couple of cars before mine and after mine and none of them were waxed.
I wonder why he gives only you the special treatment. [glasses]

PS. This Amigos place in Technopark. How is it? There used to be another one behind the renault showroom and those guys did an equally good job too. But it seems like they have shifted to some other place now.
Vipin after blowing of hot air, the machine they sprays a whitish colored liquid which the guys there told me to be wax spray. After spraying it again blows hot air. Haven't they done this to your car? I am not talking about the foam wash which they do in the beginning.

Its probably good that you do all the washing instead of giving to service centers. I have seen guys at service center washing brand new cars with dirty cotton Waste. This alone causes lots of scratches.

Does the package contains underbody cleaning?
Here in Alappuzha , it's 300 for small cars, 400 for Indigo etc. The package contains interiors vacuuming, underbody cleaning by raising the car in hydraulic jack, dash bord polishing, engine bay cleaning etc.
Are you sure it's liquid wax applying? Its an expensive stuff.

The machine dies some kind of cleaning but wheel arches are cleaned manually using pressure washer. Don't know if this is effective or not. Raising the car and cleaning seems very effective and at 300Rs it very affordable too.

IDK Sankar. They haven't blown that white spray [glasses] on my car or any of the other cars that came in for a wash. I'll ask them if they have done it ever (waxing) for any car and why they don't do it now. He he

Good to know you guys are having good and affordable car washing stations.

SR, Payyanur seems to be a bit more cheaper. Exterior(including underbody) washing for A-star is about 400 to 450rs. There are 3 water service stations available, one in Edat, Ezhilode and Pilathara. Out of these Pilathara
Haven't done any paid washing yet. Thinking about going to one of these stations for underbody washing.

Who knows mate? The next time I go there, I will ask them how they wax some cars while they've never waxed mine even though I pay the same money. I won't tell any names or anything [:D]

Guys a full body waxing is expensive.
if you get waxed with a body wash for this price then the owner would be dead by this time.
Some Vaseline type thing would have applied for a shine i guess.
Happy to see more keralites in the forum.

Is it applicable to Jeeps? May be the amount for small cars. The washing service charges at Pathanamthitta are different. For a full service of WagonR at Pathanamthitta cost around 400rs. For a full service of Toyota Fortuner cost around 500rs. Anyway Chalakkudy is better in this case.

A tip: while they are doing the work, tell them to first work with only a small part of the car.
