Well, if you got the money for those cars then $85.00 ain't Squat!! But for us normal folk that's a lot of hard earned money!! RD I can see the perks!! But , I'm just talking $$ for the average Joe!! From the receiving end sure good money and all . But in this town or any town for that matter you can't have a decent car anymore! Put your money in the engine forget the looks ! Other than a 2 or 3 dollar self wash!! I've always done my own waxing and polishing and armour all ing !! It's late it's just I guess if you got money to burn happy flambeau!!!!!

Well, that was really the only reason I did it. I already had a job that paid enough to support my lifestyle at the time. Plus I am a perfectionist when it comes to washing a car, or at least as much of a perfectionist as you can be with two of the three cars being black. The worst part was they were both smokers, so it took forever to get the ashes out.

I got you !! I'm sort of a bit of perfectionist in ways. Although , I'm pretty sure I've never done anything perfect. Car enthusiasts and such of course they're into fine details. But, for a car to drive around in this town. I wouldn't want the bad drivers to have it but good ones need a 56' Buick. Big boat with cattle guard bumpers. You get one of these jerks that never stopped at a stop sign in their life. I'd love to drive a really nice car but could you really enjoy life? Leaving it unattended in a parking lot in S.A. ...nightmares!! I had a tree fall on my Suburban in my own driveway a year or two back. Guess your vehicle isn't safe anywhere!!

sOUTH side!! i got a BMW convertible and take it to Big DADDYs carwash on Culebra approximately 4miles inside loop 410. They do an excellent job and it only cost me $10. Well i go on ladies day wednesday or friday when it costs $7 and I leave a $3 tip. I've never done a full detail that includes a wax but what they do for $7 is: hand wash, dry, clean windows in and out, tires, vacuum, armorall on inside and tires, and finally fragrance but I never get that.

Zaino Bros products are the best in the industry. they are a bit pricey, but i use less than an ounce for my entire car so it lasts a long time for the money.
