    CAR Culture, Pune Exterior and Interior complete cleaning, care & Treatment.

    My Alto car used by wife has completed 4 years and was due for interior and exterior cleaning. In Jan month when i gave it to service at Tavhare Motors, Bhavdhan, had asked Vittal the owner of this service center to do exterior and interior cleaning and polishing, which he did, but was not happy with end results as the shine dint last for long and i had the A/c typical dust smell coming from the ac vents. Was planning to take it to 3M car care but was avoiding as they costs were high, but after my May holidays, once i am back thought of getting the work done from 3M, at the same time in our whats app group One of our member shared about this Car Culture, where he claimed 80% he was happy with work and the price was far less than 3M, even though they use 3M car care products along with Wurth products. I took my car to Car Culture which is located at Karve Nagar and just less than 5Kms from where i live, there i greeted by the owner Mr. Harsh, who explained me what all work he does and he surveyed my Alto and said its better to go for UV protection for exterior and then Interior cleaning foam and steam along with treatment for AC. He asked me to drop the car and come and collect at 6:00PM in the evening. Later he dropped me in his i20 to my place.

    Below is the address of the shop:

    As i could not stay their to take photos of my Alto getting pampered i asked him to send the photos; He has sent me below snaps:

    Re: CAR Culture, Pune Exterior and Interior complete cleaning, care & Treatment.

    By the way for my Alto i spent INR. 650.00 for Exterior cleaning and INR. 1350 for Interior cleaning, Polish and AC spray. Which i felt is reasonable price. Would recommend this place to people who wanted to do the interior and exterior but avoiding due to high price.

    Thanks for sharing this Ganesh. This looks to be a really good option for official 3M outlets.

    I need body polish to be done for my Palio and will check their services at that point.

    I had been to Car Culture today for car wash with prior appointment and must say for the cost he charges and the work done is too good. For my Safari he charged Rs. 350 which includes body was with form, engine wash, interior cleaning with vaccum and then finally wiping the body with dry cloth, tyre polish. 3 M charges Rs. 650 for wash. The car looks neat and clean:

    Jeetu bhai - With all the shopping that some of us had done during the Jopasu factory visit, you are making us envious now

    Anyways, based on the feedback of so many members, this looks like a must-visit place in Pune in case you are lazy to do the job yourself. Thanks for sharing your experience.

    Sid Bro - Thanks yaar...It was long over due & mainly since I had decided to do the Lamination, I wanted the Foot board thoroughly cleaned.
    But the irony is I'm ordering the Jopasu Pack.
    After spending at Car culture, the car has become dusty in a day.

    The Duster is a must have product for anyone with some DIY approach. I hope & am sure it collects dust as easily as its been advertised.

    Keep then shining.

    Its been more than 8 months and i thought of getting my Alto interior and exterior cleaning as well as polish and took appointment with Car Culture. Dropped my car around 10:30 am and got it back by 6:00PM. below are few snaps after the polish for exterior. Car looks like newly painted, they have removed most of the scratches (i have not taken before polish pictures).

    Re: CAR Culture, Pune Exterior and Interior complete cleaning, care & Treatment.

    Hello Guys,

    I am back with another very good experience with the Car culture. My Punto is a Sept 2009 model where as 800 is 2004 model. Over these years I was mainly washing my cars at home and that too only when it was needed the most. I generally avoid taking them to local car wash centers where they are hardly bothered about the quality, proper washing methods etc. i have always used the microfiber and good quality car shampoo (Wurth, Meguiars, Jopasu etc.)to wash my cars and bikes. Also, I do apply turtle carnauba wax every 3 months.

    Though I have used my cars with at most care now the aging effect was visible. The body had quite a many swirl marks on it and car had lost it's original shine. Harsh had worked on my Punto in July-Aug 2013 and since then we were always touch.

    over these years many of my friends got their Fiat's and other cars done from the Harsh and every time received the good feedback about the work which was carried out. I wanted to get my Punto, Linea and 800 detailed from Car culture but then because of some or other problem i was not able to take out some time.

    Finally, in a last week I managed to take out some time and got Punto and 800 detailed at Car culture. Where as Linea is still waiting in a queue. This time I had two options either to go for paint protection treatment or to go for the Ceramic coating which is a step above.

    I finally got the Ceramic coating done for both the cars and the result is simply superb. Now, i will let the pics do the talking.

    Re: CAR Culture, Pune Exterior and Interior complete cleaning, care & Treatment.

    The result looks great, how long this process takes in case of your Punto and the life of the same?

    Oh and the cost too compared to usual exterior detailing done like by 3M?

    It takes one complete day and if you take care of it properly then you can easily extend it's life up to 10-11 months.
    It costed me 5k for punto and i guess 3M doesn't do ceramic coating. What they do is a paint protection.
