Good Detailer in Texas

Looking for a good detail shop in Texas. Im having my car delivered to BMW of Austin and they do not have cilajet services so Im looking for someone to seal the car and do clear bumper installation. Any leads?

I booked with him about a month ago and his earliest availability then was the first weekend in August. Worth the wait from what I hear though.

Try forum member ToadHollow for detailing. For clear bra, Sunbusters; they use VentureShield. If you want XPEL, you'd have to go to San Antonio, which from Austin can become a 3.5-hour drive along awesome back country roads if you want it to...

Texas is really big. Where are you located? If you are near DFW, I can give you some names.

Norm Schilling just north of Dallas does exceptional (unfortunately not low cost) work. Check his website out (http://invisibra.net/index.html). There's lots of information there. There are newer and better materials out there now. Norm was using a Dennison product that had a smoother installed surface than Ventureshield and was more resistant to environmental damage. I believe he's found something that's even better now.

I recommend Donavin here in Austin, TX. You gotta book him about a month in advance. He is simply awesome.
