    Hi Arka..You can opt for any of the collinite products. Just google and you can find out good reviews about it. Well I cant personally comment on this as I have just ordered for the product and it is in transit :). You can opt for Collinite 845 Insulator Wax or Collinite 915 Marque D` Elegance. Just have a look at the following website and see for yourself. http://www.bringingbest.com/ .Both are carnauba waxes.

    I enquired at Bringthebest, but his price is like Rs 1350. Saw add in t-bhp about collinite by Auto Mall, http://www.auto-mall.in/products.html and got collinite 845 for Rs 905/- Plus MF towel(quoted t-bhp id) and shipping free in bangalore. Price almost Rs 450 less than BBI, Competition is good for us :).

    Before buying wrote to collinite about Auto Mall, They wrote back telling Auto Mall is new distributor for collinite in India and it is listed in their website http://www.collinite.com/distributors_i ... ional.html , and they told in Auto Mall you can get 845, 915, 850, 855, 476 and BBI stocks only 845.

    One of my friend uses collinite for sometime, and he says it will protect and keep your car shining 6-8 months. Even if it comes to 6 months its great in indian condition, since 1 bottle can be applied 10 times, and most alternative wax stays only for few weeks. And the shine, especially for black colored cars is just amazing.

    Hi Sham... I am not sure what has happened. His price was 959 for collinite 845 2 weeks back and for Collinite Marque D` Elegance it was 1659. I am just copying it from my mail. For 959 he was providing perfume extra compared to automall (Anyway perfume could be worth the 50 bugs u spend extra).Anyways from whereever you buy, you are getting one of the best world class product. So enjoy ur polishing and do post pics once you have done polishing. Drive safe :)

    1. Collinite 845 + 1 Yellow MF + Car perfume (Europe Import) + Complete Instructions + E.mail Support for questions = Rs. 959

    Perfume we give free:

    I inquired BBI a month ago and it was the price from 1 year. So it looks like 2nd player in market is getting price to fair level. Good for all detailing freaks

    Maybe you are right Sham. Even in some blogs I happen to read that the price was 1000+ for the 845. But you being in b'lore, your best option would be auto-mall. For others they can get a quote from both and decide. So did you place the order .?

    What is Wax?
    # Car wax comes in two main forms: liquid and paste. It may be made from natural wax, but is mostly synthetic. Paste-type wax is the traditional car wax. It is applied to add a protective layer on top of a car's paint and clear coat. This layer of wax adds shine to the car's appearance and protects the paint job itself from the elements, causing water to bead up and slide off. Wax also filters ultraviolet light and prevents the color of a car from fading over time. Wax also helps delay the onset of oxidation by forming a physical barrier between the metal of the car and the salts, oils and other contaminants the car is exposed to during driving and storage.
    Liquid wax functions in a way similar to paste wax, but is produced in a thinner form. With both types of wax, the application process involves rubbing the wax onto the surface of the car and then, once it has tried to a dull luster, removing it by rubbing with a clean cloth. The portion of the wax that stays behind provides the glossy shine and typically lasts for several months before wearing off.

    What is Polish?
    # Car polish is a liquid applied to painted surfaces to eliminate scratches and dirt. It does this by containing abrasive elements that scrub the paint surface, actually removing a thin layer of the car's paint job. Additional solid components in the polish settle into fine scratches and minimize their appearance by reflecting light and making them blend into the rest of the surface. Most car polishes contain wax to help produce the desired glossy appearance.
    Polish can be applied by hand or using a power polisher or buffer with a soft cloth attachment. Many products exist for turning power drills and other power tools into polishers. Most manufacturers of car polish advise applying several coats with lessening degrees of pressure, gradually minimizing the appearance of imperfections in the car's surfaces.

    Sunil..your information is perfect. Then one more information I would like to add on is even in wax we get the traditional and synthetic type. Traditional waxes especially the Carnuaba wax is a wax of the leaves of the palm Copernicia prunifera, a plant native to and grown only in the northeastern Brazilian states of Piauí, Ceará, and Rio Grande do Norte.It is known as "queen of waxes" (Source wikipedia..). The collinite I referred to is pure Carnuaba wax. Whereas the Zaino products are synthetic and they also give a very good result. Synthetic waxes last longer and it is easy to apply. Again the choice is left to the user.On doing some googling what I found was the kind of finish we get in synthetic and traditional wax differs. So it depends on what kind of finish you expect after waxing. Both gives good shine .
