If I told you that I drive a car older than yours, 99% of the time I will be right, and if you’re born after 1991, my car is actually older than you. Yeap, my ride is a 1991 Toyota MR2 that I have owned for more than 9 years.
And I am ashamed to say that while I’ve washed the car myself and even taking it for car wash on occasions, I’ve never gotten it polished or detailed. Until I did that a few weeks ago at Summer Splash at Aman Suria, PJ.

To be fair, I knew what waxing and polishing does, but was never really quite convinced how coating can benefit a car. So when Mimi (a friend) introduced me to this professional car wash & detailing shop operated by his sister, I had to give it a try.
After all, the Japanese mistress has just gotten a new paintjob and should be pampered a little after all these years.

The treatment done to my car:
- Exterior Wash & Vacuum – Premium
- Hd Paint correction
- Nitro seal wax
- Leather Protection
- Dashboard protection
- Anti bacteria Mist
- Tyre dressing
- Front Windscreen Repellent
- Watermark remover on front windscreen for car
applying coating is a pretty delicate job
The entire process took about half a day, and it was actually quite a lot of work that was being done to the car. Masking tapes were used to cover the areas that were not supposed to be affected by the chemicals, and pretty strong strobes were used to ensure that every square inch of the car is covered. It was some real professional work.
all nice and shiny, Shah got his bike detailed too, looking awesome
The result is that my car has never looked as shiny, and I don’t think it’s ever as shiny even when it was new.
The coating also does a marvelous job of repelling water. When it rains, the body now accumulates water in small droplets and it is very easy to rinse away all the dirt. The windshield coating also does a great job to increase visibility when it is raining, expelling water droplets as with the case of the coating. As a bonus, car washing is now easier too with the car not attracted to dirt as much.

The coating lasts about 12 months and I was recommended to give it a touch up wax/polish every 3-6 months or so.
So if you want your car (or motorbike) to look as good as it should, check out this place.
