Unhappy Auto Detailing in/around Seattle

Hello Guys,

Last week I took my BSM 1er to the dealer for lojack installation. He offered to wash the car and I gave him the nod . The car is in a really bad state now with a lot of swirl marks. I was on vacation for a week and today is when I get to see the car in broad daylight since the wash and i was . The car is less than a month old now. I did see many threads about zaino products and how amazing these are. The problem is that I have never detailed the car myself and I would to get it done professionally this time. I have a couple of questions.

Do you guys know of any good auto salon in or close to Seattle?

Is it possible to fix the paint so that it looks as good as it was when I drove it off? Do the detailers get rid of swirl marks or just mask them?

Does Zaino z-5 remove or hide the swirls?

Thanks for reading and looking forward to your replies.

zaino is a chemical filler it fills swirls so they cannot be seen, you need a good detailer to use a light cutting pad and some polish to get rid of the swirls, than wax, then of course be careful when you wash and use the 2 bucket method with grit guards, wool mitts, and a nice microfiber drying towel.

Make the dealer fix it! Or have them pay for a professional detail. Why should you have to worry about it?

Post pics of the swirls so we can help!

call Aaron at 3lg.com (3 layers of gloss)

you don't want to go back to the dealer.

as well the Zaino z-5 will only mask the swirls.

you will need a paint correction detail.

tell Aaron I sent you.
