Recommendation For High Quality Detailing Services - Bellevue, WA

New to area. Any recommendations for high quality detailing services in immediate Bellevue, WA. area (Seattle area if fantastic work)? Bradley's in Bellevue was recommended to me but in checking up on them they seem to be "temporarily closed". Also, please let me know any detailing shops that any of you have had ultra-bad experiences with (poor service, bad attitudes, damage to vehicle etc.).

Thanks to my fellow Pacific Northwesterners !!

Metropolitan Detail >> Park Place Ltd IMHO, much more personalized touch and their employees care about your car.

Metro Detail. The owner there came from Park Place. Ask for John and tell him David sent you over.

I use Northwest Auto Salon in Lynnwood. They do an awesome job and are the only detail shop I've ever used that will give you a loaner for the day while they do your vehicle. I used to use Park Place in the past but I think NWAS does a better job these days.

Thumbs down Disappointed In Park Place Ltd "Hand Wash" Service

I'm on the interest list for the Metropolitan Detail group buy arranged by Johnny however I want to report my disappointment in Park Place Ltd "hand wash" service.

Just left there a couple of hours ago. Decided to at least get the storm dirt off my car. Bought a VIP wash package and really disappointed in outcome.

Door, hood, trunk sills were all dripping wet. Mirrors were still half dirty. Interior dashboard and console panels were still dusty and door panels still showing shoe scuff marks. Water was still dripping from many areas - guess they don't use compressed air to blow. Tire dressing looked like a quick wipe. Got them to clean up much of the incomplete work but still pretty shoddy.

Biggest issue was paint was showing a bunch of hairline scratches. I know these will buff out during the detail but still disappointing for a $39.00 "hand wash" car wash.

The shined up chrome exhaust pipes looked good!

I live in a high rise condo in Bellevue so self washing is not really an option. Not sure where I might take the car in the future for in between detail washes. Kind of soured by Park Place service.

Plus they always, I mean ALWAYS, scratch your window trim! They gouged out a big piece on my E92 M3 and just recently scratched my S4's window trim. Luckily, the S4 is vinyl, so I can just have it redone, but still a hassle nonetheless.

MD does basic car washes too! They are a one stop shop for all your detail needs.
