Got the 135 detailed! pics

I got lazy over the last 6 months and had been going to regular car washes instead of doing it myself.. We also had a bunch of fires last year so there was a ton of ash in the air which didnt help matters..

Anyways, got my car polished up and it turned out awesome..

Before:




During:



After! :










My friend Andrew from aficionauto.com really knows what he's doing.. If anyone on the central coast of cali needs a good detail, he's your man!

Random question i'm sure there are many variables but.. what do you guys think would be an average price for a details considering they wash, wash, polish, clay, do a leather treatment, and shampoo the floors/mats for your car. No engine work cleaning. I only ask this because I always see people advertising this stuff for like 150 bucks or so and wonder if this is a really good deal... or too good to be true? Don't mean to thread jack...

That's about right, a good job will be about $250.

Thanks for the compliments guys! Of course it rained a few days after it got all shiny.. and the car will be hitting the road course in a few days so it won't be clean for long.

Andrew came up and did my car today to get rid of my dealer induced swirls. It came out great! I second this recommendation.
