A little Detailing done

Just off the bat I want to say that I am not in any way affiliated with the place, just wanted to give the necessary compliments where great compliments are due. I just had my car detailed at Orion Detailing (http://oriondetailing.co)and Wes and his guys did an amazing job. If anybody in the GTA area is looking for a great place to have their car detailed this is certainly it. Here are some before and after picks:

Great job man! It may be his DD so he probably isn't going for perfection if that is the case...

What's considered a reasonable amount for a detail like this? I could use a solid detail bit I don't have time for it . Also, did the detail the inside or just exterior

The car was swirled up pretty good. From the pics it looks like they removed about 80-90 % of the swirls. Do you take your car to the drive through car wash?

Brandzimm it's pretty pricey. Professional does a basic swirl removal and it's about 250$ +++..depending on what you want accomplished.

Yes, I do take the car the car through car washes, that's why the swirls started to show up. It is a DD and unfortunately I cannot stand it when it is too dirty. As soon as I see mud and crap I have to wash it, it's the OCD : )....

the detailing was inside out. This is just one step polishing, I could've done the top of the line detailing but it will cost a hell of a lot more....

First thing if you can at all.. Take charge of the wash process and get out of the tunnel wash/brush wash. Within a couple of washes you will be back to that same paint condition. It may be a DD, but it doesn't have to go back to looking like one.

+111111111 on this. After this you should not go through the drive through car washes from now on..if you do you'll really be wasting your money on the detail as the swirls will come right back.

It does not take long to wash your car once a week..and maybe quick detail once mid week to keep things nice and clean. I'm OCD as well..and try this with black..but I would never ever go through the drive through car wash unless I just didn't care about the car.

I use Optimum No Rinse (ONR), 2 ounces in 3 gallons of water, 1 MF wash mitt and maybe 8-10 MF cloths to dry and I'm set to wash. Takes me about 15 to do my g37 and maybe 20 to do my full-size F-150.

Now if the vehice is really dirty I'll pull out the pressure washer FIRST, remove the larger stuff then I'll hit it with the ONR. I might add a 2nd bucket with clean water to rinse the mitt in before dousing it back in the ONR bucket. I rarely do a hose/bucket wash nowadays.

Optimum No Rinse Wash & Shine: clay lubricant, optimum rinseless wash, no rinse car wash, optimum detailing products

The drive through car wash that uses those big brushes to clean your car will put a ton of swirls in your paint. The Touchless car washes aren't as bad. But the chemical they use is very strong, I've read that they can stain/ruin trims/moldings, making them look really old. They will also strip any wax you put on as well.
