A good detail job will take more than a couple hours. I don't think for a new car with fresh paint it'd take a full day but still a few hours but the only way is to have a detailer take a look at the condition in person instead of over the phone.

A few years ago I went the mobile detailing route where someone came to my place with their own water, etc.. and it took a few hours for them to finish. I was happy with the results at first, but after a couple weeks the nice glassy surface disappeared and I started to see some of the old swirl marks. So if you do go with a mobile guy, you should ask what products they will use on your car because it does make a difference.

One place you may also want to consider is Detail Addict located in Santa Clara close to Great America. Leo does a great job and he can answer any questions you may have because he's been in the business for a while. If you buy your own detailing kit he'll even give you a tutorial of how to use each product!

A good detail can be pretty pricey. Just do it yourself....it's good to learn and know how to do. If it's too time consuming, you can do a few sections at a time.
