Been to Executive Auto Salon just for regular car wash and wax, it is no different than other normal detailing and cost me 160 USD, but if u doing there stage 1, 2, 3 the car will looks like just come out from factory. (smooth like baby skin)

For complety stage 1 may cost 250 Up and they need your car for whole day.

I called executive and they quoted me $365 for full detail. Then I called Park & polish, they do the same thing for $175. I dropped the car this morning. We'll see how it turn out in couple hours.

For a full detail, 365 is normal. That is assuming that it includes wash, claybar, paint correction, polish, wax, sealant. Then vacuum and detail interior. Also tire and wheel cleaning or under wheel well detailing (brakes, shocks, springs)

Thats usually how I would do it... its an all day event by myself.
