MODS: I tried searching for a similar thread, but may have missed due to oversight, if so, request you to move this to appropriate location. I need some opinions here. I presently am maintaining a BNW Linea. When I got this from the showroom about a month back, the guys at showroom were not supporting the Tuflon coating. Even more so when they came to know about my habit of washing my car at least once in 3-4 days and waxing it at a maximum interval of 15 days. The waxes I have used so far: Premier Padmini (used to wax it with my dad): Waxpol (that orange tin... yes, the same that took the whole day to buff) Maruti 800: Formula 1 Alto Lxi : Formula 1 But recently, I came across a thread at Team-BHP where they talked about huge fake polish market in India. Now.. I want my paint to be protected and car to keep shining. Living in north india (Ghaziabad), the car is exposed to harsh weather conditions... i.e., upto 50 degree (max) in summers to 2 degree (min) in winters. Alot of dust and some sand storms. Recently I had bought another tin of Formula 1 for my Linea (as I am not sure if I will be able to buff the Waxpol, if I get one), but after reading the Team-BHP thread, I am (maybe phychologically) not sure of the genuineness of the product I got. Suddenly I have started feeling that it is not beading the water as I would expect it too. (It could also be due to fact that the car has, so far, got only two applications of Formula 1 so far). My wife uses some 'MIN Cream' and recommends me to try it on car. I got a 100 ml bottle of '3M Premium Liquid Wax', but testing on an alternate metal surface, I found it no better than Formula 1. Collinite 845 is not available in my locality. Now, with all the above I seek your opinions on: 1. Tuflon Coating 2. Wax recommendation 3. Know the genuineness of the wax I buy. PS: Also, after I finished waxing her with Formula 1 last night, I noticed some swirl marks on the bonnet. Should I, for the time being, just let them be, or try and get them mended with some 'scratch remover' or 'polish'???
