Intending to use Happy Car..

Any feedback from users who used their service many many months back?
I intro Happycar to a lot of my friends, those who used them didn't regret.

While those who has the mentality that expensive must be good, cheap is no good. Regret big time after doing those expensive ones

Cheap or ex, can pass my inspection is good, I doubt any can pass my inspection so far, apart from Zaino which the branch I like at Toh Guan has closed down.

I love my car, to me $949 is well spent if the groomer did a professional job. However, it's only 80% to my best gauge. Oh well...


My friend did the same coating as me, and he feels it's okay. I told him, if I'm to inspect and check, sure fail. He also agrees

If I'm to check yours, I think also will be thorough fail but as long as you're happy, that's all that matters.
Hi EJB,

Zaino @ Toh Guan, but the branch closed. That's the one that really gives me results I wanted.

For now, I don't dare to let any others touch my car again. A lot of people recommend HappyCar, you can try.

PPS most useful for making it easy to wash car. Water marks naturally reduced when water flows off easily. Don't really protect against swirl marks.

Reduced but still have

Swirl marks, fine scratches still have

Still have to wash car

End up every 6 months also need to wax and polish
My advice is to skip PPS (even though I have done it)

Since I redid my PPS, I have washed with clear water for 2 weeks before I went back to my routine of wax + detail. Swirl marks are starting to appear, and on bad days when the water dries up on the boot, it actually stains and I need to rub harder to get it off.

There are also some water marks, a few droplets size here and there that I can't remove.

Water beading still remains because I wax weekly. However, it doesn't fly off as fast as before anymore when I drive with a wet car.

Happycar did told me but I am just too lazy to wash car by myself.

After doing PPS, strictly wash with water ONLY and it will lasts.
No soap no snow wash no nothing, just plain tap water.
