Ditto... I want to take care of my car. Want to learn how to do it myself... but I'd really like someone who knows what they're doing to get it into tip top shape first....

That engine bay looks clean.... I've got all the products, just don't have the time. Plus, it's never as good as a real detail. Definitely come up to Brissy!

Sure, if you get it detailed properly and the paint corrected, all you have to do really is maintain it properly and you're set

There is a lot of information available and you can read all you want, but until you try and test products/techniques, you'll never know the true result.

BMW X5 4.8is - Intensive Wheel Clean

Car: 2005 BMW X5 4.8is
Service: Intensive Wheel Clean
Comments:
- Front wheels show bad brake dust build up and tar marks
- Stubborn contaminants don't come out with a simple wheel cleaner, so this is where the IWC service comes in to play.

The car will be in for a full exterior and interior detail later on in the year.

I know many people experience this issue with their wheels, so get TWD to the problem.

Enjoy the before and after photos below!

Before - notice the areas I've wiped off with a cloth to reveal tar spots under light brake dust:

That's great. If you can let me know how many cars you need and the price for each to make it worthwhile then I can look into it - 4 from me already!

Also when you would be able to come would be nice.

Sure! It won't be any time soon, but you will be the first person to find out when it does happen

2005 Porsche 911 C2S

Car: 2005 Porsche 911 Carrera S
Service: Stage 2 Paint Correction & Tail Pipe Polish
Comments:
- Even though the car did seem fairly clean, an up close inspection revealed that it was covered in swirls and light to medium scratches all round.
- Plenty of stone chips on the front (can't get rid of those) but otherwise fairly happy with the result. So was the owner
- Black paint now is like a mirror and feels a lot smoother too.

Check out the before & after photos.
Apologies for the after photos (overcast weather didn't do the detail or car any justice)

Befores - Swirls and Scratches:











After - Imperfections removed and deep gloss finish

Come up soon. We have some fun toys in Darwin too!

Actually around April/May would probably suit as we'll be crossing over to the dry season. Pretty pointless when it's raining this much.

Cheers! No idea yet. Come up to Sydney? The owner of the silver 325ci with the BBS RCs does! Not a bad drive either.

I wish you would list the products and processes you used on each car.

I really love reading autogeek when it comes to detailing

Unfortunately, I don't have the time to list everything down. I'm quite busy as it is. My clients know what process is involved and what products have been used, so I don't keep them in the dark. Of course, there are a few secrets I prefer to keep to myself

1998 BMW E36 M3 Individual

Car: 1998 BMW M3
Service: Stage 3 Paint Correction, Leather Clean/Condition & General Interior Clean
Comments:
- This vehicle is rarely driven (maybe around 500km a year). It's parked in an undercover parking lot, but covered in dust and bird droppings.
- Very heavy scratches all over the car especially on the bonnet and the boot. Swirls/spiderwebs everywhere!
- Bonnet is covered in watermarks and bad etching in the paint work.
- Sand and dirt on the leather, Steering was chalking & interior needed a good clean.
- No panels have been wetsanded, under owners instructions.

There are plenty of photos taken, so keep scrolling down.
I've divided this up into 2 parts - Exterior and Interior. I've also got Before, During and After for both parts. Enjoy
