    I also got similar offer from 3M hinjewadi when I got the paint sealant treatment done for my Jet last week. Paying 15K upfront is quite steep and hence politely declined.

    Polishing the car multiple times is not advised. Each time you polish the car, it eats away the paint thickness. So think before spending high amounts upfront for polishing the car multiple times.

    Agreed but its necessary to do paint sealant annually and UV protection twice a year

    Did you mean to say rubbing using a compound and polishing or just applying a coat of wax polish?
    Agree that we should not be rubbing and polishing every time but just applying wax should not do any harm.

    I am looking for DIY cleaning of head liner. Please suggest a good cleaner that anybody has tried. Or if a simple mild soap water will suffice.

    If you want to remove (or hide) the scratches without cutting the clear-coat, then the best option is to use a glaze like something below, this will fill the scratches instead of removing the clear-coat.
