    When you have time... pop down! We can probably make it much more presentable!

    I never let any dealer clean my cars as they leave water marks and they are pain to get rid off.....My mates think i have OCD on car cleaning.

    Lol, not the only one. Water marks and swirls are the worst. Someone left a lovely great big scuff on the trid as they were getting out. I now removed that (required megs agressive clay!) and replaced with metallic kick plates

    Seems a few new members are fellow detailers, schweet!

    Cardiff did a very good job on my smart. They even got the mats looking like new.

    If you wanna see just how good they are at valeting a car, come down to my local dealership. 40k + Merc, swirled to fooook....

    When Chloe went in for recall work, they washed her, actually did a good job, such a good job infact that the rear brakes seized!!

I've still got marring and holograms all down one side as I've only had time to correct the other so far! TOo busy detailing everyone elses cars
    That did look really bad when I saw it. Have you got all the marks out now?

    I showed you the marks yeah?

    The one on the trid where someone left a foot scuff is gone, replaced with metallic forfour kick plates now!

    The passenger side has had the marring removed and a little correction work, the right side hasn't! Shame, but I'm always doing someone elses car so never have time to finish it!
