I wanna get my car detailed (exterior). I have these fine scratches that i want to get out so i think if they are buffed they will come out. So what is a good price for the whole exterior to get done?

I know the guy who details the cars at Acura over on Lake and 83, he always tells me that he does side work. I can find out how much if you're interested. He's done some minor detailing on my ride and it looks good. :D

Crazy_AcurA,
Hey I use to have a friend in Palantine/ Arlington Heights area that did mine for $125 exterior only. Interior and exterior = $189
He did a 3 step shine; 1. clean/clay, 2. polish, 3. Carnauba wax. Good great for 6 months..

Crazy Acura:
Don't do it man :bash:. All they'll do is buff it and give you swirl marks...and you don't want that. Just go to Autozone, get the 3M rubbing compound they have...get a nice soft 100% cotton cloth (remove the seams!) and rub your car down where the swirl marks are. They'll come right out. If you get someone to buff it you'll just get more swirl marks. And use Zaino Z5 a lot too :D. Why pay someone else $250 to do what you can do yourself better in 2 hours with $25?
