Best Detail/Paint Correction Place in Chicago

Posted this in the detailing section as well....

------------------------

My Jet Black 1er is in serious need of a good detail/some slight paint correction before winter.

Can anyone recommend a person/place that does good work? I'm looking for an FMINUS (just an example) level of detail.

I DO_NOT want "Joe Schmo's Windy City Hand Wash". This isn't a pickup truck that is dirty... I've got bug guts from my cross country move/white paint-like speckles on my hood/headlights from God knows what/tree sap/and the ever present (still after a year of ownership) cosmoline smears.

My paint is swirled enough from half-ass car washes and people buffing it with dirty towels, I want someone who'll do a good job.

Any help would be great. Thanks in advance.

I had paint correction done on my car after the dealership washed my car and put swirl marks in it. The dealership ended up footing the bill to get it fixed. They took it to a body shop next door to the dealership (Bill Jacobs on Ogden Ave. in Naperville). I think they did a great job on it. I actually stopped by the shop to thank them for the great job they did and asked how much it would cost if i wanted it done in the future. They stated 400 bucks. Seemed a tad bit steep, but they did buff/correct the entire car.

Just looked through all my business cards and I think I found the place. Its birkholz-de jong bodywerks llc on Ogden ave in Naperville. Phone 630 637 9999. Like I said they did a good job, but there wasnt too much damage to the paint just minor scratches

I'm considering taking it here. http://www.lustrdetail.com/

I found it on an M3 board somwhere through a google search. The place seems pretty legit. I've had some email correspondance with Ivan (owner) and I'm to be scheduling an appointment in the next couple days to have him look at it...

Let me know how it goes Feyd. I have a scratch on my fender that I need taken care of. God I hate parking in Berwyn, to many people with hoopties that dont care about their cars.
