Much Needed Detailing @ Al Falah

Its been too long since I have had my car detailed, I have even drove it much over the year. I took it for a very necessary service to get the beemer in optimal state, and I still had a few of the GulfRun stickers on the car. They fully detailed the car which took about a day and a half so I picked it up the next morning. Full exterior, interior, and engine detail brought the car back to a beautiful shine, damn it looked even better then it was at the dealer for the first time.

Whenever I leave Al Falah Car Wash I have to keep in mind that my tires were shined and just washed so I have to take it easy when I leave. But I just couldn’t help myself in such a clean car I just wanted to drive like a bat out of hell, and the roads were completely empty, I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face as I was driving down the highway with the music blasting.

Some Detailing Needed

I have had a very busy time over the past couple of weeks and I haven’t had a chance to move my beemer in a while, so I decided to go for a little drive and get the blue devil cleaned up. Being busy with work and spending the weekends by the water I haven’t had much time to move the car, and you should always take a day out of a week or two to drive your car, its not healthy to keep it parked. So after a short drive I decided that my boy needed to cleaned and prepped, so I drove over to Al Falah Car Wash.

It had some dirt spots and some dust since I kept it under a cover for a while. When I first started the engine it sound like music to my ears, and now I remember why I always get a ticket when driving this machine. I always have the urge to drive faster, it pulls you, you push harder, your blood is pumping and it feels damn good. So I thought it would be best to get off the street soon. They started washing the car, soap as usual, then really getting the grime out of the wheels and getting rid of that annoying brake dust.

I enjoy when they dry of the car using high pressure air to get the water out of those annoying spots that spray water as soon as you drive leaving dry water trails. They got the tire and wheel shine after drying the wheels and tires, one guy working the interior with a brush for the A/C and cleaning it out thoroughly. I never get tired of that brand new car look, I love taking care of my car. Al Falah is my favorite one and only spot to bring out that blue shine.

GulfRun 5 – The Car Wash

At last the videos are coming up! I knew some videos were coming but I wasn’t sure what video was going to be released but I really like this cool video. It looks better then how wet and messy it got, they did a really good job of detailing those cars. I really liked how my M6 came out, too bad we can’t keep our cars like this all year long the police wouldn’t let us drive at all with those on. They were really shuffling through the cars, jumping from one to the other with all the different stickers and positions, some of those cars looked really good.

Detailing In Kuwait

Detailing is a real artform and very few have perfected it in Kuwait, and these few places that I have listed below have done a good job of coming close.

I am one person that likes to drive and ride all forms of machines, I also take care of those machines. One aspect that people forget about is taking car of the vehicle’s exterior & interior, not just the mechanical parts.

falahdetailing190408-006

We have bad washing practices in Kuwait, not including bad weather, dust and all possible forms of damage to a cars exterior. You lose the color, the vibrance of teh car, your interior might even change shades of color and you might not notice.

Detailing Steps:

  • Air Pressure
  • Clay
  • Full Wax
  • Leather Treament
  • Engine Detailing

All these steps will bring back the color and shine of your car, getting rid of those annoying scratches on the car, getting rid of the circles from washing your car with crappy quality cloth. Getting the color of your leather back to its original look and feel. I recommend a full detailing at least once every 6 months, you will love the way your car looks and your car will thank you. I’m doing this to my Landcruiser after taking it for a major beating in the deserts of Saudi for five days.

Recommend Companies:

  • Al Falah Car Wash (Al Soor Street, Kuwait City)
  • Zeibart (Al Rai on the way to Avenues from Safat Alghanim)

First Stop Al Falah

Got my car back at last, on a flat bad at the end of the work day on Thursday, it was dirty so the first thought that came to mind even before food was to head to Al Falah Car Wash. The car really needs to be detailed, there were smudges inside all over, dirt all over the car so there was no way I could leave it this way on its first day back in my control. I took off to Al Falah Car Wash, and I knew the timing was perfect and it wouldn’t be too busy at the end of the work day on a Thursday. As soon as I got it, the guys even remembered that they needed to cover my intakes when I forgot, they got to plastic bags to cover the intake while they wash the car, and they did give it a thorough cleaning.

I knew that I wanted to detail the car but I missed it too much to leave it their for a day, I wanted to drive it, anywhere and everywhere. The best part is these guys knew what they were doing, I love when they use an airhose to get the water out of all those annoying places. It drives me nuts that I see water coming out of these small places leaving dry trails across the car. The leather was cleaned, it looked really good and there were no longer those blotches in the interior, but they said they need time to really clean it up and bring back the normal look. The tires were given the right shine, they worked on it for about 35 minutes before it was really done, and as soon as I got back into the car it felt brand new, that is one very satisfying wash.

Insane Vehicle Detailing

I don’t think there is a person out there who doesn’t like to a have a clean car, but this is one amazing job. I probably detail my car once every three to four months and this person detailed his car to another level. This detailing was done by a UK company it took four days and 1300 British Pounds. It includes all forms of cleaning as well as major scratch and paint correction. They also take pieces of plastic off the car to clean it correctly which is great, the picture above is before the wash and the picture below is after, but take a look a link below for a detail breakdown of all the steps taken, its fantastic.

The car looks amazing after all that work, they really cleaned it up. The only place I know in Kuwait that even comes close to it is Al Falah Car Wash after the work they did with my vehicle. They usually take a two days per vehicle or a little more depending on what they are doing.

Al Falah Car Wash Detailing!

Within 36 hours I got a phone call from Falah Car Wash telling me that my car was ready. I was honestly excited to pick up the car but I delayed it from Friday to Saturday due to the insane dust storm, I just wanted to enjoy the car being clean for one day before getting all dusty again. I have heard from friends of the quality of work of their detailing, I have already tried their was and it is fantastic, so I had high expectations from their detailing department.

A friend picked me up since he was heading in the direction of the city, I just told him to drop me off, didn’t need him waiting for me. When I got there it wasn’t too packed which is great, I walked straight to the cashier, my bill was 55 KD for detailing and wax, they also have paint protection but I didn’t want that option since I wanted to bring back the car to them in a few weeks or max two months. They have a two car fully enclosed garage for detailing, which is fully A/C with a filter system to keep the dusty/dirty air out and to keep the air inside clean.

After paying for the bill I went straight to my car, and I was simply speechless. I was smiling like an idiot the whole time, it looked amazing. They showed me the before and after of the interior, and that is what I kept hearing about. I was completely shocked by the color of the leather before, and after, it seems that from usage the color change to light-dark grey, and after the detailing it was so clean it extremely light grey as it was before. I just forgot what the original color was, they left me at a loss for words, after showing me the old patch, it took 10 minutes to clean that spot and make it perfect as the rest of the car. There was a moment between man and machine, and I knew that I have should have done this long ago and I will be doing this more often. They even had another vehicle next to me which was spick and spam, clean as whistle, even their detailing area is well kept.

For any person looking for detailing or to bring their vehicle back to life, then this is place to go. I was hoping that the car can look like this everyday, too bad its so damn dusty these days. The contact person is Krishna and his mobile number is 5084003.

Detailing @ Al Falah Car Wash

Its been sometime now since I wanted to take my car detailing at Al Falah Car Wash. They do wonders with cars when they take them in for detailing, they bring back the color of the interior and give a new shine to the body.

I know some people that take their cars detailing once every couple of months, but I haven’t had a chance due to luck. Sometimes they were booked up and other times when I decided to go a weather anomaly takes place such as dust storm, hurricane, or rain, so I stay home instead of taking the car in.

This time I called and they had an opening so after my last meeting I went straight there to drop off the car. It was perfect timing, by the time I got there I just parked my car outside for a little while. Half an hour later the owner of F355 convertible took has care from detailing so I was able to park my car indoors at that point. They have an enclosed garage for detailing and it takes about half a day to a day for full detailing, and the garage takes 2 cars. For only 55 KD you get fantastic results which bring your car back to life, that is what I have seen with every car they detailed, and now it was my turn. A friend of mine picked me up and dropped me off, and on the way back I dozed of in the passenger seat after a long day.
