The focus of the event was to provide MCF members with the necessary knowledge and skills to care for their cars, and to check out the range of Sonax products available.

Thereafter, a hands-on session with Sonax products was conducted to illustrate the proper ways to wash and clean a car, both for the exterior as well as the cabin.


blogentry-129174-0-56339000-1542712646_thumb.jpgSonax showcased the two-bucket wash method, which allows for less water usage, as well as techniques to keep your wash mitt clean from dirt and grime.


A number of Sonax products were highlighted during the MCF Hangout, as well as the techniques to apply the products used.


The Sonax Xtreme Spray+Seal is a convenient spray-on sealant that offers lasting protection and repels dirt. Just spray it on the car and within seconds, the paint is ready to repel water and dirt. It can be applied to body panels as well as rims, and provides a nice water beading effect once applied, too.


blogentry-129174-0-86162100-1542712726_thumb.jpgAnother product that was mentioned is the Sonax Xtreme Brilliant Wax 1 NanoPro, Xtreme Polish + Wax 2 NanoPro, and Xtreme Polish + Wax 3 NanoPro. Not to be confused as a product that you buy in stages, rather one which reflects the condition of your car paint - Xtreme Polish + Wax 3is for body panels that have been heavily weathered and not protected before.


The Sonax High Speed Wax was also used. With an easy spray-on bottle, all you have to do is spray on the paint surface and wipe it off with a clean cloth.


The rims were cleaned with Sonax Xtreme Wheel Cleaner, an effective spray-on cleaner which reacts to brake dust and dirt with a very cool purplish colour. This can be easily washed off with water, leaving the rims clear of brake dust without much scrubbing.


blogentry-129174-0-92816200-1542712784_thumb.jpgAs the exterior of the car had black plastic trims, the Sonax Xtreme Plastic Restorer gel was applied to these surfaces. Plastic trims after being weathered down may start to turn white, but this product helps rejuvenate the blackness of plastic trims, as well as help prevent it from happening again in the future.


A lucky draw was also held, with the lucky winners walking home with Sonax products worth up to $150, as well as a weekend driveaway opportunity with Renault.

    Owner unwilling to pay after workshop rendered service

    A post about a customer who refused to pay after a battery replacement workshop rendered its services has gone viral online. Spotted on its own facebook page, FastFix Car Battery Replacement Service explained how the whole issue came about.  It wrote in its post that its client, Mr C, reached out to them saying that he needed help as his car could not start. After listening to the symptoms the car showed( car still cranks and aircon is not as strong as before), the workshop concluded that it needed a new battery. However, upon reaching Mr C, whose car was parked in the CBD and hence the need to pay for ERP charges, the guys from FastFix realised that it wasn't the battery that needed replacing.

    Concluding that there was nothing the guys from FastFix could do to help, Mr C was then asked to pay for the labour fee that had been pointed out before in their Whatsapp conversation. Unfortunately, Mr C disagreed and refused to pay the $50 that they had agreed on as nothing has been done to his Kia.  There was not much FastFix could do which probably prompted them to 'share their story' of the client on their facebook page.     Here are some of the notable comment in the post.
