    Depends on the size of the vehicle. For a clay and 3 step on the paint, plus dress the tires, vacuum and clean the windows inside and out, $100-150.

    when you say "dress" the tires what all do you mean? tire gel?

    and what do you use for the windows? i had this armor-all window spray that worked pretty well....
