    Waxpol Dashboard & Vinyl Polish

    Got Waxpol Polish for the Dashboard & Vinyl today. I was in search of this polish since long as i used it earlier on my 800, it gave very good results :up , now going to try on my Dzire.

    Had been polishing Dzires Interior with Armorall Dashboard & Vinyl Polish, but the results were not satisfactory.

    Attaching Pics.

    There is none in Mumbai. Apparently, 3m does not operate out if its own centers. It has tied up with most major car manufacturers & operate out of its dealerships.

    Micro Fibre Cloth @Rs. 29/-

    @VP, as we discussed. Today during a visit to Hypercity, saw Micro Fibre Cloth @Rs. 29/- :) i was :shocked to see the Price.
    The Pack Contains 2 Cloths, 1 is a Smaller one & other is a Bigger one, is it an Original / Genuine Micro Fibre Cloth ? The picture is attached for your reference.

    Awaiting Expert Comments ::D

    It looks good. Rs. 29 is dirt cheap & can't be genuine Micro Fiber at this cost. But then who cares? This cloth looks good, even the throwaway yellow cloth costs Rs. 15-20. Share your experience tomorrow

    Amit Bhai, Super Quick Reply :) agree with you that at this price point, what more we can ask :lol:
    Yes, i will share the experience tomorrow. I will give a wash to my M-800 & Wax Buffing with the Fibre Cloth. The Good Old M-800 will be the Scape Goat for Buffing :)

    Amit Bhai, You were Absolutely Right, when you felt it will work :) With the Micro Fibre Cloth.
    Early Morning today burnt a lot of Calories ::D Firstly gave the car a Good wash with the Amway Car Shampoo & after drying up, applied Turtle Hardshell Wax Polish & Buffed it off with the Micro Fibre Cloth.

    The Cloth did an amazing job, very easy to buff the car after the wax has been applied, on top of that there was no Lint & any kind of residue after buffing. The Surface was just SMOOTH and in the End Left with a Mirror Finish Shine :up

    In the End, washed the cloth with a Gentle Detergent, and it is very easy to wash it, just a swipe of the Detergent & Voila all the Blackness is gone from the Micro Fibre Cloth.

    The Pics are attached to support the above statements, the pics were taken in low light early morning conditions. Kindly Excuse for the Quality of the Pictures.
    Thank God it didnt rain today when i was polishing the Car.
    Final Verdict A BIG :up and at a Price of Rs. 29/- only for the Fibre Cloth, this is a Steal..!!
