    Need Reputable Detailer in/near Citrus county FL

    Hi guys,

    Bought this black '09 M46 with 17K miles a few months ago & it's making me crazy.

    This car has their "scratch resistant" clearcoat and it just doesn't seem to be working - at least not like it does on my wife's blue '09 G37.

    This particular car has a LOT of water spots, particularly on the pass. side. Not sure if it was routinely parked somewhere where it got hosed by a sprinkler system, or something dripped on it a lot ?? Even the glass is spotted. It also has tons of fine scratches that run horizontally down the sides from the window trim down about 6 - 8", across the back of the trunk and on the front fenders & hood. Look to me like it was dry wiped a lot or dragged thru a crappy car wash.

    I have a PC 7424 and have tried twice to work out some of the crud with M80. It's a lot better than when I got it and the Tech wax 2 has temporarly "hidden" some as well, but I'd really like to have it looked at professionally.

    Tried to get some pics of the waterspotting and scuffing:

    If you click on the pics, they will expand so you can see the details.

    Also, for you mobile guys - I have a large garage with power & fans and a 20 x 20 carport that also has power and is shaded until early evening.

    Todd Helme (Bella Macchina) came out yesterday and spent the entire day (11 hours !) working on my car and the results are simply awesome.

    There actually WAS a black car hiding under all the hazing, waterspots, scratches etc.
    I keep sneaking out to the garage just to admire the shine - hee hee.

    THANK YOU Todd for a great job on my new "baby" !!
