I mostly do my own when i have the time, however on my previous motor i did use a mobile valet once after the youngest daughter threw up all over the interior... cost £75 and he even managed to buff out a few scratches lol...


If you have the time then diy... if you don't then just pay someone

Depends how much you want to spend. I do diy. A safe two bucket wash with mitts etc eat. Go onto detailing world. Since I've been apart of that forum I have spent about 1000 on cleaning stuff. It's quite addictive.

Personally I do it myself, by checking out forums like detailing world you can pick up a huge amount of info about keeping your car in top condition, in the long term its a lot more economical than paying someone else to do it for you.  You also get the satisfaction from knowing that you did it yourself.
