Had a bad experience with my brand new car. Never again. Besides, they use
dubious stuff on your car. You don't know WTH they using and if its
abrasive/damaging to your car finish or not; not to mention the dirt
encrusted cloth's they use. Also, it cannot compare to your own work in
terms of quality.
DIY is the best. You choose your fluids/material and with your own effort,
get to see the kind of results that you want (same goes for polishing &
waxing) while getting to know your car better.

NOTHING compares to the high you get when you see the result of your own handiwork......
and when you park it next to someone who has paid for it to be done.......

Yes, i defintely agree with you. I also prefer DIY because you can
spend more time on your car, see the best result produce from the products
and you may know well which product perform the best result for your car.
Normally, i alwasy DIY during weekend. Just a regular steps such as
1.) Wash Car - using Perma Glass
2.) Ploymer Sealant Wax (2 Months) - Using Perma Glass
3.) Remove Tar - Perma Glass
4.) Windscreen Cleaner - Maxcillin
5.) Tyre Shine Long Lasting - Perma Glass
6.) Engine Wash - Crystal wash
7.) Dashboard shine - Perma Glass
This will take me half a day, i alwasy prefer morning time. If you do
carefully on your car, then you may save a lot of money to the car care
shop which they only do simple simple wash & Polish & wax. Cost you a lot
of money. Why dont just go to ACE hardware shop or Eneos or Brothers to
buy your car care products and DIY. It just cost you +- RM100 only.
I like DIY.

constrain and level of dirt. If too dirty then I sent it to the carwash.
But not all car wash are good...some will even scratch your car and some
dun ever care to wipe the dashboard.

What the diff from waxing?

faith in the chemicals they use and also the cloth they use. :P Haha.
The proper use of polish is to help enrich the colour of your car through
application of a pure polish. A pure polish has no cleaning properties and
is only suitable after the surface is suitable cleaned. A pure wax also has
no cleaning properties. You would apply a wax as the final layer in your
detailing process to protect the paint and shine. Also a good wax will
increase the shine and depth of a car.
However, most materials we find outside cleans, polishes and waxes at the
same time or so they claim. So most ppl would take polishing and waxing to
mean the same thing, which is cleaning, polishing and waxing in a single
