The specialist CARS has their outlets in the shopping centre like 1 U, MV and etc. It is worth to join as the member and they are damn good to taking care of that. But if you just want to wash 1 time only. They will wash for you. But charge very high.

Used to follow my friend to an Autoglym centre somewhere in Taipan Subang. Very expensive and the owner does cars on special requests. Otherwise he will leave it to his workers. A package of polishing, waxing and clear coating - 2 times each - will cost around RM700 :P

Wow 700 is certainly very expensive.

I did ask the one car wash inside 1 utama under new wing car park, but not sure its CARS, its only 288, so I think that is cheap already..

Does the CARS has a website where i can find more info or phone number I can call?

Do you mean wash the car engine and etc like how they wash the car? Or you need the technician to open the engine parts and wash it one by one? If you just want to wash like normal, those normal car wash will provide this.

Kevin, the Autoglym people can do it for cheaper. Just go for the basic polishing and waxing. One layer each. No clear coating.

Don't have any contact numbers. Maybe search yellow pages for car polishing or auto detailing.

hahaha. i confuse you again! actually what i mean is not wash the engine part. it just front part of car. i scare on those normal car wash did not do it in professional way. They might not proper cover those wiring, just simply wash it

Edmund....... no matter how the wiring is cover.... it still get wet... only precaution is, after it wash... leave it or blow it till dry then only move the car..... that what I did saw when my car was send to cleaning, washing, waxing and polishing at Toyota Service Center.

Kevin...have you sent your car for cleaning yet? IMHO, if it's a serious water marks...then you certainly need to consider polishing, that's the only way to remove them efficiently. Not sure whether the service provided by the Toyota Service Center includes several layers of polishing(normally it will be 1, 2 or maybe 3 layers)...coz IME, rm145 is quite cheap for a full polish and wax job (unless if they are using cheap brand of product like the ones used by the roadside car wash operator). If it is just wax...i don't think it will solve your problem. Of course your car will look nice...shining bright after it's been waxed, but later when the wax has evaporated...i'm sure you still can see the water marks on your car.

Maybe you should check on this first...that is if you still haven't sent the car there yet la. :roll:

Yeah I have send the car to polish and wax today, and the results are indeed satisfactory, all the watermarks are gone.

Im not sure how many layers of polishing but i think definetly not 3 layers, looking at the price, but for me it doesnt matter how many layers as long as the watermarks are gone.

But reading from your post, I hope it wont return after the wax evaporated.. Normally how soon will it fully evaporated?

Basically...the life expectancy of a car wax depends on several things. If the car is parked outside under the bright shining sun most of the time, it will sure evaporate much more faster and will last much more sooner. My car which i normally park indoor when i'm at work and at home, the wax normally can 'tahan' 2-3 months max.

Another way to preserve your wax to last a little bit longer is to use a good car shampoo. Don't use dish washing soap or detergent because they are natural wax stripper.
