M Roadster at OTDetailing

I took my Imola Red M Roadster to OT Detailing in NJ, near Newark. Frank is a very nice guy who is OCD about cleanliness! Every single towel or sponge is stored in it's own ziplock bag to prevent dust settling on it.

I got the "Enhancement Detail" package to get rid of most swirls and scratches. He did an awesome job and I will definitely bring my car back for future detailing.

Looks amazing.

I love the way fresh Imola looks after a detail. Mine is currently in that state!

Amazing! Looks great! But why detail it so early? We've got the rest of February and March to go. How much did it cost to detail?

I'm guilty of not having the car detailed for 2 years, it's finally time to do it. I won't be taking it out during winter time, so it'll stay clean in the garage.

The pricing can be found here http://www.otdetailing.com/service.html

If you guys get it detailed at OT, I can try to help you take some photos after

OP - i'm thinking of reaching out to Frank @ OT. Do you know him or did you just happen to pick his shop randomly?

I had picked OT randomly from a recommendation on forums, but he did amazing work I would only go to him... unfortunately he's moving out to LA soon!

Spoke to him today... seems like he is still here and is booked out about 7-10 days right now... he certainly has an elaborate process he follows.

i have shards of road grit now embedded in the side of my car near the side blinkers... need to get them out!

OK, so I just picked up my wifes black X3 at OT, for the 'minor paint correction' detail. Let me tell you, the car looks absolutely incredible! inside and out! It was about a 15 hour job, maybe more, (he had the car for 3 days and 2 nights).

He photographed himself using timer and tripod and you can see the (probably 10 step?) process he did, the foaming, the powerwashing, the ironx, the clay, the multiple layers of polish, sealant, and wax on top of it... everything. and yes, each group of microfiber towels are in separate ziploc, and the rest of his work space is meticulously organized. I saw the depth of the paint on the 'paint depth finder', noticed he masked the edges so as not to burn them, and the list goes on.

very well worth it. I will try to get another car over to him before he moves to LA in early july. the LA area folks should be on the lookout for him, he should do well there. Bummer he is moving, he is really passionate about this and is excellent.
