Being new to car cleaning stuff as i have always stuck with professional help can you help me out with the stuff i want. I basically have no idea on what all stuff should i buy. My new Dzire will be delivered probably by next week. Can you please shortlist some products for my car and their prices. My car is a White Dzire LDi.

Get ONR for washing your car along with some good microfiber towels. This you can get from Mr.Sanjay of bringingthebest.com. It costs a little over Rs 600. If you are not inclined to this and wants to wash the car the usual way, get Sonax shampoo from any of the online stores. Meguiars carwash is also good. Remember, swirls are produced due to incorrect washing techniques, so less you wash, the better; of course with rain and mud, you may have no choice. With ONR and good MF towels, you have less chance of swirls.

Polishes help to a grat extent in getting rid of small scratches and swirls, Meguiars ultimate polish is good. Your new car may not need it straightaway, unless you are very quick in getting swirls all over it. Polish also gives the paint a lot of depth, especially in dark colours. Polish should always be followed by a paint sealant, which are polymer based, like Meguiars quikwax or NXT . Instead, the same protection can be given by Cornuba wax, which can be paste or liquid. The present waxes are mostly of the spread on wipe off type and quite easy to apply. Cleaner waxes will help to eliminate the need for a separate polish, especially for new car like yours. Meguiars and Mothers California gold have a wide selection of waxes.
For daily use, get a Jopasu duster from snapdeal or ebay and get Meguiars ultimate detailer spray

Lastly, read how to wash your car and tips on detailing. They are all over the internet forums. Feel free to ask to clear any doubts. Soon you will be thanking the stars that you chose a white car and not a black one. They are like women, they need a lot of attention

ONR means Optimum No rinse and I have just checked the bringing best website. The link is www.bringingbest.com, New Delhi, India. you can even send a mail to Mr. Sanjay to find out the prices of items. Contact him on sanjay@bringingbest.com

Polishing and waxing can be ideally done with an orbital machine, but can be done by hand also, depends on your inclination. The present day polishes and waxes are easier to apply and wipe off without using a machine.

Most of the Meguiars or Mothers stuff are available with bringing best or with vicky.in.

Before you start anything, just follow these links to know how to wash your car and tips on detailing your car. Modify the steps to tailor to your needs, as your car will be a new one.

Meguiar's G14422 Ultimate Quick Detailer-QTE | eBay

Regards,

Yes, these are some of the items, but the prices are unreasonably high, as the seller imports from US. Dont buy from such sites. If you go to vicky.in, you can get the same stuff for a fraction of the price. You can also look for the same items at sites like autofresh.in or carkhana

SHall post pics of the products i bought from them soon.

Its from the accessories shop where i am fitting my car. Products costs very less like Meguiars Ultimate Polish which costs 2k online retails at 600rs. I was a bit shocked at the price variants and had to reconfirm if they are original or not. Have already confirmed the bottle capacity which is same.

Congrats for your vento highline,
I too purchased a vento diesel highline ob 29 Mar 2013, silver colour, very disappointed, with the in car entertainment system installed.
Though the brochure shows the music system with sd card reader, aux in, bluetooth, usb in thenew vento, but none of the features are visible on it, looks like some obsolete version of music system has been mischieveously fitted.
Need to share your feedback and experience on this aspect

Hey can you post the picture of the stereo?
I guess you have got the earlier Vento which had the MDI cable inside glove box where you can attach USB and Aux cables?
Please check inside glove box and let us know

Hi Prem,

Hope you are doing good.

I have bought some of the products that you recommended. As my car is a white Maruti Suzuki Dzire it needs regular attention so that color doesn't fade. I must say after using the products that you recommended the result were marvelous. I am uploading a pics of the products that i have bought.

Glad to know that you have bought some quality products there. See that you get some decent MF towels also, do not use anything else to dry your car. Get Jopasu car duster (available at snap deal.com for Rs.499).Wash your car if you must, otherwise use the duster and wipe the car using quick detailer spray. Use the quick wax, when you feel that the water beading has become less, may be once a month should be okay for your new car.
I now use ONR as a diluted spray to wipe down the car after using the Jopasu duster , you can increase the concentration of ONR to use as a detailer spray as well, that is the best way to reduce swirls on your car surface. That way, you need to do real shampoo water wash only for the rainy season, when the car will be smeared with dirt and you may not be able to use the duster. Even in this situation, ONR will be useful.
Enjoy your detailing sessions.

So can you explain how to do the cleaning of my car?

As per my understanding of suggestions i am using the following steps.

1) Wash the car using shampoo using a microfiber towel. Then use wax polish to wax the car. Do this only during rainy season when car gets very dirty.

2) Use quick detailer along with Duster to give the car a polished look. Apply wax once a month if polish fades away. To be done only in non rainy season.

3) Clean dashboard with natural Shine Protectant during regular intervals to prevent the dashboard from fading.

Please correct me if i am wrong.

Regards,
Sankar
