looking for car wash/detailing recommendations

As title says. Has anyone got any recommendations on a quality car wash/detailing that you would trust your baby BMW with in MA?

Well I agree with you. I actually used to do these stuff myself before. Sadly, living in condos does not give me the luxury of having my own garage where I can do these stuff.

Rick Nelson @ Unique Car Care in Wakefield got rid of all the swirls on my black sapphire metallic 1M and did a custom clear-bra instal. I highly recommend his work.

I wash the 1M myself with a few products I buy from Detailer's Domain and take it to UCC about once a month for a good wash and minor detail. Full detailing to follow after the winter...

Keep in mind that BSM swirls easily; VO is probably a little more forgiving...

Thanks for the heads up. I PMed him for contacts. I'm probably gonna give him a call next few days(actually, probably after the holidays) to set something up.
