While i was at work i dropped my car off in the morning, and was picked up and dropped back in the afternoon to see this:
LOVE IT!
(pictures are from a few weeks back, just got time to upload them now)

there appears to be a crease on the left hand panel. i think its a reflection or something wrong with the camera. there isnt one on the car!! i think its the reflection of the front door!

Modifications (everything else is standard)
Black refurbished wheels in gloss black
EK9 grill
Square rear numberplate

he can do but do the backs of the wheels need cleaning? detailing is more about polishing and getting the paint colours to match panels (not after a spray-more on good bodywork to perfect the colours, remove oxidants etc). you start by getting a smooth surface with clay, then do the detailing, then apply a sealant to the paint (before the wax) then apply the wax to get the shine. once its done properly the results are above. even after 2 months the water still beaded off the car and i was getting looks all over the place. brilliant

I'll have to ask him how much but from when we got the car (he's done it 3 times now) it looks so much better. not like the faded yellow mismatch paint it was. (my car has had bumpers sprayed, and the left-hand side). its now as good as it can get without a proper sprayer matching the bits back up. (the bits were sprayed before i got the car and there's over spray on the interior and they've sprayed the inside of the wheel well (the plastic stone guards). probably how I got the car for so cheap! Just got to make it as good as we can get it without spraying made it look 1000 times better!

there are holders at the top to hold them in. i have people in the back occasionally and havent put them back up there for ages.


DETAILING:
Depending on the car's condition, Usually anywhere from £80-160. Also depends on how long it takes.
