    Im showing my car tommorow to a potential buyer. I already showed him once, and he was impressed. The only thing he said was that it needed to be a bit cleaner. Now, i cleaned my car in 30 min before i showed him, and i had one product to use for everything, for my girlfriend has all my stuff. So, hes comming again tomorrow, i cleaned the inside for 2.5 hours. I used a leather cleaner, mguiers dash cleaner, a 1:1 simple green:water mix for the carpets, cleaned all the vents, did the windows, vaccumed, hit all crevices with a q-tip, etc, etc. Im just worred its not clean enough, should i condition the carpets? if so, what should i use? is there anything else i can do? Id take pics, but its noting special.

    Thanks for the help and the click.

    hows the paint look?

    it sounds like the interior's spotless for what you did.. that should be good enough.

    when i was shopping for my car i looked for

    interior:
    carpet stains
    ripped vinyl or leather

    exterior:
    rust
    scratches
    swirls
    oxidation
    brake dust etched on wheels

    dust is negligible, if you shine the tires shine the wheel wells as well, also dress all plastic/rubber trim on the outside of the car

    i think meguiars has a rubber/vinyl/plastic protector or something. only if your trim is in bad condition though, don't worry about it

    car sounds clean i don't know what he could complain about if the price is right. cheers!
