    Hey all,



    I`m from Wisconsin, USA, but I`m going to be a foreign exchange student to Australia through Rotary International! I can`t wait!

    Howdy - I`ve been here since 2002

    Sadly I cannot advise on a perth pro so I`d take up mr concours suggestions
    Car care/detailing sadly isn`t high on the agenda for 98% of australians.

    G`day senojNW, I have been around here for a little while too but these days just so busy working and travelling for work that it is very hard to find time on Autopia.

    Hiyas



    Im from Perth too, been speaking to Damian from F.I for a good detailer in Perth, WA, and my conclusion is to do it myself! Do your research and buy your products accordingly. Im yet to purchase a RO, but my polylack twins, P21s and assorted MF`s just arrived today!

    I`m in Melbourne at the moment, but by November I`ll be living in Perth (much to my wife`s displeasure - her family is in Melbourne)



    I have a friend in Perth who details for a living. He says he gets too much work to handle. I haven`t seen his work, but uses a rotary and Autoglym polishes...seems to know his stuff. He charges too little for my taste - rotaries work fast. I mainly use a PC. His business is called HiShine.

    SenojNW,



    You will be happy to know there is a new place to purchase your detailing supplies in Perth.



    Detailers Obsession is a new business that stocks:



    Zaino, Poly-Lack, P21S, Edge, Optimum, Aquatouch Microfibre, Bowdens Own, QEW and more...



    Give me a PM and I`ll send you his details.



    P.S They are having a detailing course on 22nd April.

    Hey Hemi57! The only information I know right now is that I`m going to Australia, tentative departure date July 18/19 2006 and departure July 18/19 2007. Rotary Club International hasn`t given me a city or even region yet, and hopefully I`ll find out soon! I`ve been reading a little bit on Australia but I have a feeling that all of my preconceived notions (or lack thereof) of Australia are wrong



    If previous exchange students are any indication...they`ve, in general, gone to the Melbourne/Adelaide area. I believe very few go to the Sydney metro area, at least with my organization. Only about 7 students from the United States go to Australia through Rotary each year, which is dramatically low compared to other countries, in part because in the past decades U.S. to Australia students didn`t want to come home and apparently were a problem for Australia (dole-wise? I don`t really know).

    Mizzuri,



    My understanding is that you are the sales manager for AG Group AU. If so, your promotion of the products you carry is not appropriate. Please review our commercialism rules.



    Thanks,

    David
