Richboro Car Wash does pretty good work, but I would suggest that you learn how to detail yourself (give a man to fish, teach a man to fish). I consider myself a rookie still, but I'd be willing to help (I'm in Newtown, PA).

I'm in wrightstown! Don't know if I've seen your car. I have seen a beautiful (not all stock) AW M3 in the newtown farmer's market. I took my car to richboro once for a wash and after I then noticed a small chunk missing from my front wheel..Now, I don't know if they did it--or it happened previously. The do it yourself detail is great--can be relaxing, but my free time is not as plentiful as it used to be....
Oh, I did stop by a "detailing" place next to the newtown car wash. There was a new 530 outside. I went in and asked the guy some questions--he was smoking while detailing some SUV. Something tells me this is not a place to bring a luxury car.
Hope to see you around. Thanks for the offer, may take you up on it.

I dont know about this place. They seem like a rip off. When I had my car already fully detailed outside (wet sanded and buffed) I went to them a day after just to see what kind of work they do. I then just out of curiousity asked the guy how much it would be to detail the outside of my car. he looks at the car and said, ummmm looks like a tough job. Quoted me $400. Freaking scammers. Although they did have a nice S500 there.

I've had 2 cars detailed there multiple times. Unless they have changed this within the past 12 months. It's certainly worth the phone call...

I'm in Newtown, but only on weekends (I'm in NJ for school fulltime). I rarely see M3's in Newtown.

PS - Nice Car/House!

I've come to the conclusion that car washes are generally a bad idea if you value your paint. Was your experience there in the M? I'm usually around on Saturdays, and winter break is coming up soon so I'll be around more often (hopefully snowfall will be minimal).

later

yes, the car wash was a mistake-only did it 2 times We have well water and I was paranoid about the hardness of the water. Still a little worried, but it's still got to be better than handing over the keys and wondering if they're scraping my wheels.
