Good Car Detailing

Finally found a good place to get my car detailed - Somerville Car Wash and Detail Center.

I've been trying different places in the greater Boston area, as hate to do it myself, and finally found a place that I like. Ask for Craig, the owner, and drop my name (L.D.) to get a showroom finish quality job for $70. Everything was done by hand, using my products, and as I instructed (believe me, not trivial). Really looks great! Nothing replaces doing it yourself, but this is as close as I've seen in the area.

Happy to hear other suggestions if you have some place you really trust (assume that I've run down the list on Yelp).

What did they do for $70? Exterior/interior/clay/wax?

Seems like a pretty good deal...

Seems like a pretty good deal...
Exterior: hand wash, pre-soap, soap, rinse, very good dry, after-clean finishing product. No wax (I tried the Swissvax wax, but didn't like the results on frozen, so just using their other opaque products).

Interior: vacuum, shampoo, leather treatment, all the little nicks.

Notes: all products used were mine, and it took a little over two hours (longer than I expected, but happy with quality). Also, the price would probably include a little more (wax, buffing, etc.), but I just don't need these options.

They used your products? What kind of detail shop uses their customers products?
