Budget around RM800 for polishing. Would want a carwash that use quality products so that the shine can last for at least a few months. Oh also various parts of my car are wrapped with 3M vinyl sticker such as my hood and roof. Would polishing these areas adversely affect the integrity of the wrap? Thank you
vinyl sticker cannot use normal polisher. just use 3m sharp shooter to remove stain.

Won't try to sway you to buy from taobao but I think the parts are the same though.

Had my top and bonnet wrapped.
Recently, when for a grooming session.
The guy informed that they won't touch these two area as they worried polish might tear the vinyl.
After much persuasion and with my assurance that anything wrong with the vinyl i would not hold them responsible, then the guy just did light polishing.

Hmm alright. I've decided to not polish in JB and instead wash the car on my own every week. Will be buying water wax, leather care and window glass cleaner tmr evening before washing it. Thank you for all the suggestion!

Oh another qn though. I just send my car for the servicing at World Auto. Seems like they're using housebrand EO 5W-40. Any workshops in JB that provide EO serving tgth with Atf fluid and install brand new Honda aircon filter? Thank you

Went for a wash this pm.
The workers kinda scared of their boss, did not slack at all when comes to washing and drying, very systematic like McDonald's, everyone knows what's their role. Not the cheapest in johor but considered cheapest in Bukit Indah area.

I usually wash car at the caltex diagonally opp sentosa. RM15 all in.

Still prefer Tuas, in and out. Less nonsense and less jam.
