Cost is dependent on location, as well as the work desired/needed. A single pass of AIO is a lot easier than a 4 step correction for instance.

Try this guy; these are jobs he's posted here:

Other recs I tracked down for you from a detailing forum include:
Executive Detail East (I've read some of his posts too)
Peachstate Detailing
Mirror Detailing

Bryan Burnworth of Peachstate Detailing is one of the best known and most respected detailers in the nation. Autoweek rated him one of the top 9 in the nation.

You're right- darn it, it worked before, and sorry.

gmblack3 = Bryan Burnworth = Peachstate Detail

We're talking about the same person.

Thanks mikenap. I actually did wonder about that, but didn't follow through.

It's a good thing you clarified, otherwise Bryan might wonder why the heck the OP asks him twice about the servies- he might have suspected Alzheimer's or something!

When you put it like that, I shouldn't have said anything. That might have been kinda funny!:rofl:

I'm interested as to how they (autoweek) arrived at these top nine detailers as the best in the nation?

Thanks guys, I looked at Brian's website. I may need something bit cheaper...:(

My car is prety clean, I just need some good engine detail and ext. and interior detail.

I have 03 525i w/63k miles so spending $600 on detailing job is not very wise... There is a BIMMER store in Atlanta that offers this pkg for $249 and they work on some very high end cars.

Yeah, I did not want to say anything, but with the title and his work, he does change a good amount. Like they say..."You have to pay to play."

Now you still have no said what you are wanting exterior and interior wise? Bryans $600 package is a 2-Step, so I assume you are wanting upwards of 95-100% correction of the scratches/swirls on the paint? It would help a lot more with pricing if you could explain more of what you are looking for.

Also dont trust a store, just becuase they do high end cars. Cactus Car Wash in Buckhead does "high end cars" all day long...doesnt mean they do them correctly, which they dont.

Yes, I think this is what I need:

1) Engine bay detail
2) Exerior: Wash/Clay/Wax or Wash/Clay/1-Step/Wax (not sure what I need)
3) Interior:leather seats clean and conditioned, carpets and floormats shampooed and the interior panels scrubbed and dressed.


I never done it before, so I'm sorry if this is a dumb question.

Here are some pics, engine is kind of filthy and interior could use a lift. Exterior looks good, I think..

I'm not sure either, but Bryan Burnworth is a first class detailer, so whatever the criteria I agree with them on his selection

I'm not disputing his abilities as a detailer. I'm wondering how they (autoweek) arrived at the top detailers in the country? Its a pretty big statement to make considering how many detailers there are in the US, pro's and novices a like.:D

Bob, The pricing level you referred to is a starting point for a 2-3 step exterior correction. That involves at least 12 hours and usually consumes anywhere from 15-30 man hours.

I also offer a level 1 exterior detail as noted on my site, which starts for less.

Please PM me if I can help you any further with pricing.

I apologize for not seeing this thread sooner, I've been very busy over the summer.

Here are a few BMWs for your viewing pleasure.

New Alpina B7, just a one step via Zaino AIO and some Z2/Z8. the "other car" received the same treatment. :)

This 2010 335 had deep water spot etching on all of the horizontal surfaces. It got wet sanded with via air sanders (3/6") with 2000 mirka abralon discs. Polished out with M105 and M205.
