good detail shop in CT

Hey so i've looked at my options and found that detailer's domain in NJ is basically the best in the area but I am not sure that I want to shell out almost 1k for a car that is 5 years old and a DD. However, i'd still like it to look good so I was wondering if anyone has had good experience with any place closer, in the stamford area (but also anywhere that is fairly close), that does a good job but isn't going to bankrupt me?
Thanks

Sorry to hear that, your the first person I've heard to have a bad experience? Mind if I ask when this was and what you drive?

i'd give eric at birdies another shot...he takes very good care of his customers so let him know you were dissatisfied last time. im sure he will make it right.

ive never had a detail from him but ive seen some of the cars after detail and they look really good.
