Taking delivery soon...

Should I let the dealer detail or hire a professional to detail? I can't decide what to do. I'm afraid they are going to cause swirl marks but on the other hand, why pay for something that would have other wise been free. Plus I can always get it professionally detailed later. Any suggestions?

I would use a professional detailer... at least that's what i'm having done with my one week old car.

Yeah that's what I'm leaning towards. I've found a good pro detailer in my area too. I just hope he are available the date of my delivery.

Thank you. I can't wait... It should arrive at port in NJ on the 2nd. Hopefully it will be at my dealership by Saturday.

I wish I could have you detail it. Nice work.

If you have the dealer do it, chances are you'll need to then contact a pro to fix it...so bypass the middle man and go straight to the pro to start it off properly!

Congrats, and best of luck.

Yes I've decided to use a pro. I've already scheduled an appointment. It will be worth it!
