I've complemented you on your work before... however I'm on the east coast... hence I wanted to see what this caliber work costs... that way when I get quotes near me... I could compare....

IMHO, I don't think you can compare. You'd be hard-pressed to find a professional detailer who would put the time and level of work into it that FMINUS does. There was no one else I wanted to touch my car and he does this as a hobby, not as a profession. I've looked at prices for professional detailers here on the west coast and they charge anywhere from $150 - $600 and don't do anywhere near the level of work that FMINUS does. Not to be rude, but it's not my place to tell you what he charged me....and to make my point clear, I don't think you can compare because no one I've talked to puts the time, skills, equipment, labor and, dare I say it, love, into the work like he does.

Thus, based on the above, I would suggest that $400 is probably about what you would pay for the "best" so-called professional detailer but I still feel that the work would pale in comparison to FMINUS's work and thus, there is no comparison.

Pay no attention to "Hester"....that's a friend of mine from law school way back who "inherited" a porsche from one of our law school professors. If anybody wants to read the story about it, it's a good one and is posted up at pelicanparts.com:

Just incredible detailing work. I've never seen Jet Black that pristine, and I owned and obsessed over a Jet Black M3 for 3 years. I am not familiar with the product abbreviations, but would like to know what was used. Again, just amazing.

FMINUS, as usual amazing work, if you saw my 330i jet black you'd probably faint from the work you'd have to put in - lol, but I hope to get her back in shape soon and have been watching the threads to pick up any details.

FEMINUS how do you clean the engine and under hood?

I'm sure that you have commented on this before. But how exactly do you go about the under hood detailing and what products do you use? Thanks in advance.

Are you a detailer? That is, do you do this kinda work for money or is this for fun?
