    Re: Jaguar back for re coat

    [INSERT usual praise for Mike lambert`s work HERE]

    Mike lambert- Certainly so surprise that you did such a nice job on it and treated the client fairly, but I`m sorry you have to deal with somebody like that.

    Thank you! It’s really not a problem, just frustrating! He’s willing to spend the money which is better than the “you said it wouldn’t scratch “ people!

    Sounds like he needs a maintenance wash program. Would he be up for you exclusively washing it?
    Treat it like it`s the only one in the world.

    Fortunately I’m booked with coating work all week. I do Maintenance details on Friday, but he’s a free Guy and I get $250 for a Maintenance Detail.

    Hey, that piqued my curiosity!

    If you would please, explain a bit more about those Maintenance Details...and what $250 buys with regard to your time/services.

    Guess I`m wondering what it`d cost for you to do my version of a Maintenance Wash (including engine compartment/undercarriage, calipers/interior including vents/etc. etc. basically a no-correction, but otherwise Concours-level job). I always think that if I had somebody like you in my area I`d just farm it out, but maybe that`d get pricey!

    Other than putting a machine on it, everything else is done including Modesta Maintenance products. About a 4 hour job.

    Thanks for the response, and gee, I`m impressed that you get so much done in 4 hours! It takes me maybe half that just do the undercarriage and engine compartment

    But it sounds like I`d be spending $250 a few times every month and that could add up. Good to know that though, and I`m sure not saying that your services aren`t worth it!

    The cutting ones with no foam are intimidating and hoping I could get similar although probably not as good as work you do with the foam backed MF ones.

    I’m sorry, I thought you meant like the Meguiars ones, a cutting and a finishing microfiber. The fast cut one will cut right thru an edge and is seriously aggressive.

If I wanted someone else to clean my car there are a healthy number of automated car washes and car washes places around me which allow pretty quick service if I wanted to ruin the paint and I`m sure there are plenty of pro detailers with a mobile service if I wanted it done right. None of those options involve having to deal with a busy dealership service department and then waiting long than needed for someone to wash the car.
    Hey, DesertNate !
    Hope you guys are all doing good over there !

    If this Dealership is like the Lexus Dealership I once bought a new IS350 from, they have a separate, permanent, Car Wash 1-Booth place out in the back parking lot, and everyone who bought a Lexus from them just queues in the line and waits their turn.. Never have to go up to the Dealership building for anything; just get in line for your Lifetime free car wash-n-scratch..

    Never mind the guys who drop their Drying Towels on the ground, and pick them up and still use them on your Jet Black LX-L..

    I of course, never used that, but I always saw a line of Lexus cars out there waiting their turn when I went in for service..
