Question Auto Detailers in the South Jersey area?

Does anyone have any recommendations for an auto detailer or a mobile auto detailer in the Cherry Hill/Mount Laurel/Moorestown, NJ area?

If you are willing to spend the money, there is a guy named Ryan that is well known in the area (beware he is a bit "eccentric"), cleans most of the 200k+ cars at auto toy store, his shop is in Berlin I think it's called Classic Auto Fitness Center. He is pricey though. When I got my E46 M3 it had the worst swirl marks I've ever seen. He got all of them out...but charged me 340 bucks...and wouldn't let me take it home because it was drizzeling...and gave me a 1 hour lecture on how to and not to wash the car.

For a regular detail, I highly reccomend Euromax on 561 in Voorhees, he is very good and the prices are fair. Tell him Keith with the audi sent you.

If you're still looking for a detailer, I'd recommend Autobsessions. Guys name is Nick. Did a fantastic job on my E36 AND E46 M's.

There's a plethora of different packages some of which can get pricey...definitely worth it though.

www.autobsessions. net is their site.

Thanks for the recommendation, but I already had the detail done. Ryan Kates at Classic Auto Fitness Center (856-753-3700) did an amazing job.

Ryan is the shit, seriously there is no one in the area like him. Little crazy though, huh?

I can also vouch for Nick, he's a great guy and skilled at his craft.

btw...awesome m3...going for a test drive on a dct e92 today at desimone, my car ADD has me a little bored with the S5.

Yes, Ryan is a unique individual! I love his passion for cars and perfection. He's a good guy and has lots of great stories, plus he does a great detail job.

How did your DCT M3 test drive go at DeSimone? I was there Thursday and they had at least 4 DCT M3's on the lot. I'm surprised to hear that you're bored with the S5. That is one great looking car!

Ryan removed swirls in the paint (caused by the dealer) and he did a full detail as well. (PM me for price)

BTW, cool license plate!

Great looking indeed...and it is an attention whore. But the ride is more subdued than I prefer. The dct is outstanding, i was very impressed overall by the car. It hasn't motivated me to part with the 10 grand that would keep my payment where i want it. Considering an M5 also as the lightly used one's are going for a steal these days...I think half the fun of being a car enthusiast is shopping for the next one .

So you're keeping the S5? I haven't seen you around, but I'll keep my eyes on the roads. I haven't even seen any other S5's, so if I see one, it'll probably be you.

You're welcome. If you take your car to Ryan, tell him Steve with the 2008 Interlagos Blue M3 sent you.

Yes, I use DeSimone for service. I've been using them for over 15 years.

For now it's staying, but I have a lead on a 2006 black/white m5 loaded with 12k miles for about 55k. My game plan was always to go from the e46 to an m5 until I saw the S5. I would go with an m3 if I could get into a dct w,19's premium and tech for under 60, but it doesnt look like that's happening unless I keep the audi till some used inventory gets out there. I'm all over the place with this decision...

And yeah, if you see an S5 it's either me or one of the flyers has one in SJ...it's me if the driver looks nothing like a proffesional athlete

That's too bad that you can't get an M3 for the target price you're looking for, but I agree, a DCT M3 with 19's and Prem/tech packages will be difficult to find for $60,000, even if it's dsitting on the dealer's lot. The 2006 M5 sounds like a sweet deal. If you're not happy with the S5, go for the M5...that's one hot sports sedan!

See you around South Jersey...

Does anyone know if Ryan is still at Classic Auto Fitness Center? Are there any other local detailers anyone can recommend?

Ryan is the owner of Classic Auto Fitness Center, so I'm sure he is still there.

Another recommendation is Nick at AutObsessions (www.autobsessions.net). He is mobile and does an awesome detailing job.

Call Glen Halfhide, owner of Clear Choice Detailing. All he does is clear bra installs, and he is 3M certified. He is mobile, or you can go to his shop in Bala Cynwood, PA. He is an excellent clear bra installer.
