Recommendation for detailer in OC?

I need to get my new interlagos blue M3 detailed (clayed, buffed, polished, etc.) and am looking for a really good detailer in Orange County that knows what they are doing and will do a perfect job and not give me any scratches, etc. in the process. My car had some minor scratches in the clear coat and the dealer offered to buff the car but I don't trust them to touch it (they already buffed out a small area and put some nice swirl marks in my paint that will need to be buffed out). If anyone has any recommendations I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

It's white. Just gonna have them give it a nice detail. There are still some lines on the car from the plastic wrap from the factory. Some swirls on the new trunk lid. Minor things, but I wanna start with a good base before doing the upkeep detailing myself.

I'm in the same position as you but my car is interlagos blue. I have a fair amount of scratches/swirl marks as well.

John is the best detailer in the valley. He's done my brothers wife suv and I was blown away. I detail my car myself and I am extremely picky about everything so when I say he's the best that's a huge statement. Hit him up and tell him ammar sent u.

John worked on my (new to me) '08 Red M3 Coupe. While I didn't get to see the final product until after the sun had set this evening, what I did see looks very good. I'll try and get some pictures up in the next day or two.

I can say that based upon what I can see, I recommend Exclusive Auto Detail.

I'm looking for a good detailer as well. I wasn't happy with the job I got from John.

Thanks for the info. I was thinking about using him. What did you not like about what he did? You can PM me if you prefer.

Eric at Envious Auto Detailing has detailed a bunch of cars for me, and does fantastic work. Thought I'd throw his name in the hat considering he is based in Huntington Beach. Besides doing great work, he's down to earth and a nice guy to deal with.

I would post his contact info, but since I'm new to the forum, I'm not sure if it would step on any toes.

Heard the name before. Is this a shop or a mobile guy?

Eric is mobile, and is willing to travel some pretty long distances (based on some of the stories he's told me). I did my homework before deciding on Eric, and he did not let me down.

Glad you found his info. Feel free to contact me if you have any other questions. If you decide to go with him, let me know how everything turns out. I have no hesitation vouching for Eric, and have a strong feeling you'll like his work.

Lucci elite. Hands down the best in all of SoCal I would say. Jimmy just made an account on m3post and has already posted up two bugatti veyrons, a 1m, and e60 m5 which were full paint corrections. If that isn't enough just go check out their Facebook or you can find all their threads on l4p. He has worked on hands down all the exotic/performance cars you can think of.

He PMd me. They do full corrections only. So if you're looking for a standard detail, they are not the ones for it.

I will be trying Eric at Envious next most likely. He has done some nice cars on here. You can search his username, Envious Eric, here and it will show a lot of his work.
