    Hi folks...

    Looks like detailing is becoming more and more popular in my part of Europe as well...

    As I bought a second hand 2009 Accord saloon, I decided to visit a guy that does something like detailing (although I would not dare call it real detailing).

    So what he did (in no particular order):

    washed the car - 2 bucket method
    clayed it
    polished it
    cleaned the engine
    cleaned the interior
    applied rain repellent
    applied some special nano stuff to the seats
    applied Opti Coat 2.0

    Product-wise, he used Meguiar's, GTechniq, Dodo Juice, Sonax and Opti Coat 2.0.

    Here are some before and after pics

    Looks good.Some bad swirls and scratches in first picture really noticeable on black cars.
    I had my car machine polished recently and its swirls free for now.
    Good job, like it.

    Yes, he removed the swirls, but there are some scratches and stone chips that wouldn't go away with polishing, so I ordered some touch-up paint from my stealer to try and fix those by myself.

    Looks a pretty good from the pictures ... so out of curiosity just wondering why you said "although I would not dare call it real detailing" ?

    Because the guy that worked on the car was sloppy with some areas, but I attribute that to long hours of working...

    Real detailers work for several days with a car, mine was done in less than 24 hrs. But is was good job though.

    All in all, I paid almost 300 euros for the job. Perhaps I expected a bit more.
