    I know there are a lot of services called details on the go i was in one this past summer where they come to your work/home bring it to their shop and then return it to you, i did some porsche, lotus, benz's a lot of top end cars and a lot of normal cars, i can hit up my friend if u want to see what the deal is if he is still doing it....

    The price is usually very nice such as around 150$$ i know thats extremely low compared to the main line shops but they dont really care about the money they care about doing a sweet job. They have done tons of the same size of your car they do it all by hand which is hard to find anymore. They are all fire fighters and love cars and we have been doing it before we were 16.
    I know this is like the standard stuff he does for that much
    Exterior
    Pretty much standard stuff
    -Takes out small scratches (he has his own formula that works amazingly)
    -Washes the car and wheels, and the wheel wells
    -Does a base wax which he usually lets you decide what kind of wax u want on it (compound/liquid) In the summer time i know he waxes the windows also to help with the bug marks
    Interior
    -Vacums everything
    -Dry foam's the carpets to get out the stains if any
    -He uses all "armor all" solutions for cleaning your seats and puts on UV protection onto your leather, basically anything inside the car gets cleaned
    -Cleans all the windows inside
    -Also I think if your trunk is empty he will do your trunk which is nice and cleans out the any build ups near door hindges....

    If you want some pics I have some of an sl500 he did and a white B5 passat

    He will come to you or meet you where ever such as work and leave his car there and bring urs to either his parents house where he has his set up
