    Not much of a challenge detailing garage queens though...and $5000 Zymol isn't worth the cost.

    He knows how to market himself to the rich though.

    The marketing part was really impressed me. I could'nt believe how bad some of those exotics were though. Some had so many swirls and oxidation. Wonder how if they are never driven? In all though, he is making some jack and not working on french fry infested mini-vans!

    The mentality is a $250K must require a $9k detail. The 91 Civic I did today should have cost $9k :hs: Fucking fire extinguisher rusted to the floor :ugh:

    I'm not going to doubt his skill at all. He's probably an excellent detailer and found a niche in the market that he can fill... The people who pay that much probably expect the car to be perfect after it's detailed so he has to know what he's doing.

    Great businessman as well as a great detailer.

    not really impressed, you just have to watch him wash the car. you would have to buff the car out everytime after he washes it.

    and most rich people, they have to much money to care. so if you tell them its the best, they beleive you.

    one more thing, isnt that zymol wax about $1500 in the US why does it cost $7200 pounds in england isnt that 14grand

    I believe, as with any other advertising, those are "retail" numbers. Doesn't sound better saying you drive a 60k Bimmer even though you negotiated to 52K?

    LOL....
