Question Best place for detailing in Chicago

Anyone know a good detailer or detail shop? I want to get it done sometime this spring. But I want it done right and done good. Not too worried about the price if they do good work.

Just checked out his site. I think I may set up an appointment with him in a few weeks if there are no other options. His prices are pretty reasonable and judging by the cars he's done, he must do good work.

About a week or so ago, I saw a Space Grey 135i with the license plate "E82" parked on LaGrange Rd in downtown LaGrange. Was that you?

You can get professional detailing services around Detroit. They do have steam cleaning too.

Give Ivan at http://www.lustrdetail.com/ a ring. He restored an 05 MINI for me a while back. Did a nice job!

Nice, i'll probably go back again this summer and have him detail just the outside.. it did an amazing job when i went last summer. Plus his chemicals are amazing. I need to get more in the spring.

I tried Orland Park performance detail and they did an excellent job on the exterior. Especially the bumper and front of the hood which were pitted with sand and tar from a long road trip. I was almost to the point of having them repainted.
Great job on the engine too.
Best detailing experience I have had in a very long time.

Unfortunately, Steve is about 90 miles from where I live, so Orland Park performance was a great find for us people living in NW Indiana and south suburbs.

Damn spammers. These guys spam their "steam cleaning detailing" on nearly every board I've been to.

I know this thread is old, but I have to give a big +1 to Ivan over at Lustr Detail. He comes highly recommended and is national known / recognized. You can check out some of his professional articles about detailing techniques, tips, and product reviews here: http://www.detailedimage.com/Ask-a-P...or/ivan-rajic/
