      Smile Hello GH!

      Hey Guys,
      Prabhagar here from Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu. About myself, just a regular joe in his early 30s, who happened to buy a car about 20 months ago and sparked his automobile know-how. My ride is the cute little Tata Tiago in its petrol avatar, clocked about 23K KMs joyfully since May 2016.

      Besides learning about cars and their technical/mechanical stuff during my ownership, I also started my baby steps into the world of detailing. I have a thing to keep my rides clean which pretty much brought me to this forum (though after few months of thinking). Until last year, I only used to wash my car with a shampoo (Armor All Ultrashine is my favorite) and wipe down with microfiber towels. My first detailing began with Armor All Heavy Duty shampoo, Meg's Ultimate Polish & M26 yellow wax. Thanks to GH member, CRACING who was always helpful in guiding me throughout my baby steps. Recently I also tried Collinite 845 and liked it's results on my car. That's about it, looking forward to interacting with you all soon.

      Car looks great, love the alloy design too. Not sure about blacked rear tail lights but I like the ORVM wrap, will protect from scratch as well. My ORVM have some scratches so may as well consider it. How much did this cost you ?

      Thank you, they are actually unpainted ORVM covers which comes in gloss black for some reason. I did try Carbon Fiber wraps (ordered from Amazon India) on them but they started to peel off around the corners within 2 days. I now have gloss carbon fiber wraps from GearBest site (ships from China), waiting to be wrapped. I can share links to both products if you like.

      Glad to know that Lvramanan, yes loving the ride so far. It's been 20 months and 23K happy kilometers. I just love the ambience inside the cabin and the wonderful Harman audio system. I don't miss my 10" kicker sub anymore that was on my old car

      General question: Though I'm new around here, I noticed many Chennai folks in the the threads I visited so far. Is it just a coincidence?
