Looks like they have done a top job.

How much did they charge you if you don't mind me asking.

Don't forget that the E60 and F06 are available for a fully insured swap whenever you want.

Haha, noted Andy

Price is dependent on how much work is needed so not really fair to share - although their price points are now on the website.

That is now a very shiny car and really makes the blue pop. Lovely jubbly mate.

Why did they used Crystal Serum "Light" rather than the professional use Crystal Serum.

Depends on a number of things...

Mainly because I don't keep my cars long enough to justify the product; my record is 2 1/2 years

Also, Definitions Detailing is largely a mobile service - and hence 200% more convenient to me any many others! I didn't want to commit to my car being in a garage for the curing process given my needs (above).

Then you have the cost difference.... just not worth it for me. Given the results I've seen now on the 4 cars they've detailed, I'm very happy with what I have
