Hey guys, first time poster here that just bought his first M3 (late-2011 AW w/ competition pkg., premium pkg., cold weather pkg., premium sound and black novillo leather).

Got what I thought was a great deal, but I've noticed a smoke smell develop over the past few days that was well-covered up when I bought the car (shame as it was advertised as a non-smoker car and def. smelled nicer last week).

I'm hopeful to get the car smelling normal in the near-term before I spend on getting all the interior upholstery redone in a couple of years. As such, I was going to have the dealer replace the cabin air filter this week and then head down to Rhino this weekend (40+ mile drive for me from West Hollywood) to have the interior cleaned thoroughly w/ shampoo, etc. and to have them perform the ozone treatment (wasn't able to track down many places that offered both services).

Wondering if you guys think Rhino is a solid bet to do the interior cleaning, ozone treatment, etc. (vs. exterior detail work which I think I'm good on for now) and if it's worth the 40+ mile drive (i.e. are there a couple of places that'll do as good or better of a job that are closer to the general LA area?).

Thanks in advance!

Also curious about recommended detailers in the LA area as my 2010 needs serious swirl fixing... :-)

I was pretty happy with Rhino overall, but I had a scratch he said he could buff out and I paid $20 for it. He didn't do shit and I still got charged. Went to tlp's place and he buffed out 85% of it for me with his big ass buffer.

There's a guy in Whispering Bomb (LA Chapter CCA mailer) who seems to really know his stuff.
There's also someone on the detail section who's suppose to be good here.
