Detailer recommendations in Chicago?

I was wondering if any of you guys had any recommendations for detailers in the Chicago area (incl. burbs)? I was thinking about treating the 1er to a thorough detail once a year from a pro.

I live close to Knauz in Lake Bluff. They are a big dealer and I hear they are one of the best. A couple guys here said they are a great dealer. I have a few names of salesmen if you want. Its very close to Libertyville off HWY 41 near RT 176. They have 1-135i demo and 6-128i's. And about 100 other BMW's.

I also went to Anderson BMW in Crystal Lake but they don't have many cars. Usually less cars means more profit per car.

Jeff - thanks for the recommendation, but I've already bought the car. I was looking for detailers, not dealers.:biggrin:

The best detailer will always be yourself. UNLESS you find someone who truly loves cars. I use to manage a VERY small detail shop in a parking garage. We did a great business because we hand washed and took care of the cars. Everything from Ferarries to mini vans.

You also have to see what products they use. If they have the ability to explain what eachone does you are golden. But I hate to say it, even a NOVICE detailer might be better at doing his own car than an EXPERT detailer who doesnt give a crap. You will pay SOOO much more attention to what you do on your car than anyone else will. I hope that makes sense. It only takes a little time and elbow grease.
