    @Zen, here you go. Bought them from Reliance Autozone, HSR Layout. :)

    Glass Shampoo: 429 INR
    Car Polish: 379 INR
    Car Wash: 329 INR
    MF Cloth: 190 INR
    Wash Mitt: 226 INR each

    Currently they have an offer when you purchase 3 Sonax products, the cheapest one is waived off from the bill.

    @Arnab: Are those stains white? Asking cos it might really not be the shampoo, can be the hard water to blame. :)

    Anyway, I also have Meguiars NXT and Amway shampoos, so I can set the benchmark of where this one stands.

    Yes, white it is..but initially I did suspect it as being hardwater but when I started using meguiars nxt car wash with the same water and same conditions but no white stain like that...I still have almost a half bottle of this shampoo...
    Whatbarenyou using on your cars plastics?
    I never had any problem with the interior but for me the outside plastic material is simply horrible..initially when I purchased the car the outside plastics used to be black, now greyish, maybe a month or so it will transform to white..

    No, I didn't. It was an impulsive buy, as I went there looking for Minda Trumpets. They gave a fairly good deal. Like I said, buy any 3 Sonax products and cheapest one is free.

    I use a 3M spray, not sure of it's actual name, will get you the name while I go to my hometown. It restores the shine on plastic and vinyl-work.

    One of the top 5 polymer sealants in the world. DG looks very organic and lasts a very long time. An all time favorite of mine.
