    Auto Mall is out of business since a long time. Hot Tracks Bangalore is the new Mothers Distributor. However he has priced all the stuff sky high. A wax I picked form Auto Mall costs 4 times more with new distributor.

    Better try to get Meguiar's Ali Polish, called hot rims mag and ali polish or something, its just as good.

    PS: Small tn of billet polish costs ~2k :S

    Thanks Sunny.

    Sham's prices were really good. I'd paid ~500 for both Mother's Mag & Al + Chrome polish back then. The Billet was priced around 500 then. Those jacked up prices are really ludacris. It's a pity because the product is pretty much mind blowing.

    Will keep an eye on the Meguiars. There is one Indian site (carsingh.com) offering Mothers Mag & Al at Rs. 390 , for the 5 Oz pack probably. Will mail them and see what they say.

    Cheers.

    How do the prices in the online shop look? Are they on the expensive side as well?

    most of the polish / wax seem to be on par with what i paid for other brands like Eagle one.
    So i'm guessing its almost the same (only slightly pricy)

    That's a brilliant job done! The engine bay looks pristine!
    Going by the car's age, there should have been lot of dirt and grime stuck on every nook and cranny.
    How did you manage this result? Please upload 'before' pictures too if possible :)

    Thanks! I used Meguiar's Super Dregreaser to clean up the engine and then Hyper Dressing to shine it up.

    Before. Pictures dont do justice to before or after...before looked worse and after much better than in pictures!

    Notice the area behind the left strut in the pic, next to windshield washer bottle. Did not leave even the smallest nook or cranny!

    ^^ I am floored sunnyboi. I feel guilty of not maintaining my car like you.

    OT:- What is that red container in the engine bay on driver side?
