Full Detail Devon Hill BMW - any experience?

Devon Hill BMW in Philly area advertises full detail service. Has anyone used them for full detail? How were they? Would you use them again?

Also, in general, do new car dealers do a good job detailing or would you recommend going to a small shop for better quality?

Thanks!

Never let a dealer wash and/or detail your car!

I have used a private guy for years, he details and will even color sand the car down later on in life when it needs it. His prices are good $300 as I recall for the full on service, and is the only man I ever trusted to do my Black Vette. No machine ever touched it otherwise.

I would recommend him in a minuet. If you want his info, PM me, I will dig it up. They are right in Philly and the car looked Brand new (it was 7 years old)

+1000

To the OP:
The REAL detailers are artists.. the ones working at dealerships/car washes are all hacks. Avoid them, they will destroy your paint and find a real artist to detail your car. You can also ask the same question on Autopia (a detailing forum). The link is http://www.autopia.org/forum/index.php

A lot of professional detailers hang around there who will be willing to detail your car and you can also ask for references.
