    ONR seems very interesting. has anybody used it on Team Fiat with good results? I could only find a thread started by Auto mall about it.
    I have the Jopasu duster which does a good job except when there are bird excreta or stains like somebody spat a paan from the window. I am not keen to wash more than twice a month.

    Also, going to 3M tomorrow to put CS 50 sun film on all 4 windows and will get a quote for the paint sealant aw well. Any products worth picking up at 3m - shampoo, wax, 3M equivalent on ONR etc?

    3M car care has a product quick detailer. It will help you in removing the bird drops. I am yet to try this product. I may also visit 3M tomorrow to pick this if time permits.

    Enki - If you lived in Chennai, you would know how dirty your car gets in an hour. I am just trying to simplify my life by using the Jopasu every morning and not wasting my time and energy on water and shampoo. If ONR helps with cleaning without water, that just makes my life easier.
    BTW, I drove all the way in 3rd gear today and it was a breeze :)

    Yes, it's a breeze, no doubt. That's what i mean when i say get the essence of these vehicles. They will reward you every-time.
    Now pls don't try to convince me that coastal areas have more dust content than comparatively less humid areas like North India. We have full 6 months of sand storm here, dear. Don't wash, rub & polish too much the car. It peels off some microns of layers every-time you do one. Just ensure it's clean instead. That's what i trust & maintain. How would i suggest you anything else? I am very stubborn & keep trying my best to convince you all my lifetime even if you are an aquatic Humanoid in an oceanic blue aquatic ride:mrgreen:.

    Our fellow TFIan Anoop has been using it for quiet some time & he personally recommends it to all his friends as he found it to be very easy & effective . In a place like Chennai where we face water scarcity at times & the quality of water which can sometimes create water marks, ONR is highly recommended. I am sure you wont regret after buying it. I can guarantee that much. Even I am planning to get one soon.

    I have been using ONR for a few months now. My cleaning schedule is only on sundays. Following routine I follow once a month:

    1. Dust off with Jopasu.
    2. Wash with ONR.
    3. Buff with MF.

    Last time I applied Collinite 476 was 45 days ago and it is still good to go. I intend applying collinite 476 next month after the ONR.

    Apart from this, every sunday it is dust off with Jopasu, wipe with a damp MF and buff with another MF. Car stays clean through the week.

    On the Kaarlson leather seats, I am using collinite 845. The cleanliness lasts for about a month.
