You haave PM...
if you dont mind travelling to Aberdeen you will find the best in the business IMO.
Hey Street, I recently got 2 mobile valeters out to check my 2005 E60, expect to budget around £300. I can certainly recommend some linkies if you want.
Just be aware a lot of detailers do not repair stone chips, so you may want to get that tarted up before paint correction.
The 2 guys I saw said you do not really need paint correcting (cos of the year and condition I guess) but if you want it, and it will bring it the car all nice etc, approx £300. That is for one pass correction, if it needs more....
It's up to you, but I am about to get mine detailed and extras, but not paint corrected, for a lot less as per recommendation from a detailer!
Guy will pick it up for me or I drop it off the night before and he will collect me etc. Very friendly!! Red :-)
PS I stay in Cumbernauld! Pah!
For my X5 I've been quoted from 250 for a minor correction to over a grand plus VAT up here. The first quote was from a guy in Livingston that used to sponsor the RRS forum and Ive seen his work first had along with the work the company up here wanted over a grand to do and to be honest Johns was every bit as good as theirs is. So I know where I'll be going one day when I've nowt on. A thousand pound saving cant be knocked in anyones book!!!
not too sure if we are allowed to link to other forums, but check out www.detailingworld.com its full of useful info about doing this sort of stuff DIY and it also has a gallery section of people showing off work they have done recently this is normally a good way to gauge how good some one is.
MODS please delete if breaking any rules.
Being a BMW with a tough clear coat I always advise customers to go for the full correction, although an enhancement detail can make a massive difference it will not offer fully corrected paint on a BMW paint finish.
Prices will vary quite a lot sometimes because of the area but mainly because there are a lot of people jumping on the detailing band wagon out there. There has been a massive increase in this over the last couple of years, people going out and buying a DA and then calling themselves a "Detailer" But the fact is most of these people are operating with no insurance etc and have very limited experience in detailing and correct tools for the job (paint depth gauges etc), we certainly couldn't run a profitable business by charging what some of these guys charge and keep our unit where we operate from. Mainly because these people are in full time employment and operate at the weekend for some beer money, there is a bit more to detailing than just buying a DA and attacking your car. Like I say I'm not trying to put you of in anyway as you are miles away from me anyhow, just trying to paint a bit of a picture for you.
But that being said you would be hard pushed to cause any damage with a DA so long as you use your common sense, but if you really don't fancy investing in the equipment and having a go yourself then I would be happy to PM you and advise you with some reputable companies in your area. They would most prob be on a similar pricing structure to myself, if not slightly more but at least your pride and joy will be in safe hands
