    Sanjay's pricing differs from Customer to Customer. I pad about 1800 odd for both. ONR is 6OZ and Duragloss is 12OZ.
    Just used Duragloss this morning for the first time while the car was heavily soiled in rain water and mud has dried all over. I'd say I am impressed with the cleaning power of DG, as good as ONR if not better.

    Too early for a comparison, will need to use it a few more times. Unlike ONR, DG has a funny bubblegum color and smell.

    You will only know the difference when you use both. I prefer ONR for some reason though I will happily use DG till my stock lasts. I personally like products that do not claim to have added Wax in them. ONR is a pure No Rinse Wash while DG is a rinseless wash with wax.

    Hey guys just thought to share the prices difference b/w car shops outside and mrp .
    today i went to shell petrol bunk @ near kamakshi hospital and saw the store to by surprise , i thought they are selling only juices and eatables , Oh No they are selling all car care products , 3d mats all type of WURTH products,perfumes towels, F1 products what else all arethere for a car @ MRP thats the main advantage and also he said as it shell shop its all original products.

    these prices below i buy in car shops velacherry

    For example
    F1 carnuba wax = Mrp 400 in shell where as in car shops its 450
    F1 mr leather wax = Mrp 325 in shell where as in car shops its 450
    sonax car wash 2 types 289 and 389as in car shops its 350 and 450 , like this list goes on

    I had a a DIY detailing session done on my Punto over the weekend. However, here's where I messed up. There is one place where I didn't properly buff off the Meguiars Swirlx that I had used and applied sealant over it. Dried polish marks are visible through the wax layer on top but can't be removed. Now, how do I deal with the situation? Do I clay over the area and apply SwirlX again? Experts, please suggest a remedy.

    Re-using swirlx on the same area should resolve your issue. Else you may have to clean up the wax layer & use swirlx.Swirlx should be able to remove the wax layer in my opinion.

    Do I need to clay again before reapplying swirlx?

    No need Ritu.Swrilx is an abrasive compound by itself. So no need to clay.
