Detail Please

Can anyone who is talented with detailing Jet Black come and detail the exterior of my vehicle? I have light swirl marks and spider web marks. I live in Commerce Texas, which is about 45 minutes east of Dallas. I have been trying to find someone talented enough to do this around here and I'm having no luck. I just purchased this vehicle and would like to get it cleaned up and prepped for the harsh winter months. Everyone I have been in contact with is too distant from my location and wants to charge me insane amounts for travel. Before you make the comments of saying Why not do it your self? I need to inform you that I do not have the time, talent, or necessary accessories and products to do my car justice. Even if I did have all that, I do not have the balls to attempt something like that on my car. I would like it professionally done. Or at least from someone who has experience doing such a detail to jet black BMWs.

Autopia.org

That site has a lot of detainers. Look in the regionals and talk to many professionals. Too bad you don't live near me. I have the experience you are looking for.....

Well, that may be far fetched to say to someone from another part of the country. However, we do have some bad weather here and there in Texas during the winter months. It gets bad enough that I want to get my car taken care of.

And by the way, it's not hard detailing it yourself. Here's me detailing my wife's '11 135i:

Still can't believe this car had less than 300 miles. IIRC, owner eventually got reimbursed by the dealership:

You might want to find some BMW Jet Black experts on autopia.org and ask for referrals to your area. The top guys seem to know the other top guys in other regions.

I remember reading that write-up awhile ago. Very impressive. Always one for inspiration!
