    What a detail you have for your Linea. Super and with graphs/charts, it is so easy to understand all details easily.

    Some pics (though we have seen earlier) are simply stunning.

    The car had become a bit dirty hence a quick wash. I was tired and could not wax the car. Next week full planning for a full fledged exterior wash and wax and then interiors will be cleaned especially the seats, dash and the door pads.

    A few pics after the wash.

    Recently, the Meguiars NXT car wash I had got empty. Purchased the Sonax Car shampoo based on my buddy's recommendation. Quite happy with the end results. The car looks like its waxed and it actually isn't. I had no energy left after the thorough wash of the bike and the car.

    ^^ Did use Sonax shampoo for couple of years. Was really happy with the results. There are two types - normal one and the other one is 'gloss' shampoo I guess, which is touch costlier but provides better results

    Yes, its the Gloss shampoo its a bit costlier, but had an offer of a free microfiber cloth worth 229 and 40 off the MRP for shampoo concentrate of 1 litre. Its a steal compared to Meguairs which costs around 500 bucks for 475 ml shampoo concentrate.

    Here is a pic of the shampoo.

    The car looks very clean and bright after your hard work :). Even I clean my car personally and it is time consuming and energy consuming, washing and waxing is just too tough nowadays and it has been a long long time since I did it.

    My car wash shampoo is just finishing, it was a huge bottle of Formula 1 easi wash which lasted for quite some time. Based on your recommendation I am going to buy the Sonax Gloss Shampoo, hope it is available on snapdeal.com.

    The car had become quite dirty with the cyclone rains in Bangalore. Gave it a thorough wash the past week and here is it how it turned out.

    The combination of Karcher and Sonax gloss shampoo with a couple of hours spent cleaning yielded this result.
