I went for an exterior detail - wash, clay, polish, sealant, wax, wheel clean and seal, tyres, windows. Took about 4 hours. Paul used Chemical Guys products which I think look great. He also offers Zymol. Very affable and knowledgeable guy. I recommend him w/o hesitation.

Wow, that is CHEAP! Miracle Detail (although arguably the best) are I believe £75/hr so you would've been looking at £300. Mind you, it would have been Zymol which in theory is "better", although I did mine with zymol and I don't think it looked as good as yours!!!!! I suspect technique is a lot of it, also have to look at durability.

Will you be maintaining the finish now with CG products?

Would you say it looks better than new now? I often see that with detailers.

Thanks. I must admit I'm now a fan of CG. I was going to go with Zymol but thought I'd give CG a go - glad I did.

Paul will do Zymol Concours for 25 more - good deal I'd say.

Your car look's stunning Mate, I bet you over the moon, and for £120, I've emailed Paul to see if he covers Kent.

Thanks for posting the photo's.

I'd hire him but I think I wound him up a little (or possibly that was my interpretation) with some posts on detailingworld (and vice versa). Bit silly to get wound up by someone on a forum if you are looking for business Wasn't even about detailing IIRC. His work looks pretty damn good though and seems highly regarded on detailingworld tho.

Did 120 include a machine polish to remove the swirls etc?? That's normally where the cost goes up.
