    Any recommended pro detailers in Dorset?

    Looking to get a proper detail done on my year old Golf. Ideally I need someone local to me in the Bournemouth kind of area. It needs machine polishing to remove the swirl marks and some other slightly deeper scratches, as it seems the previous owner was not very good at looking after the car. Would probably want it de-badged and ceramic coated as well. I have found some possibilities, but none of them have an indoor area for the work, they would just do it on a driveway. Does anyone know of any good people in the area who would also have indoor facilities?

    These sort of people seem to be thin on the ground due to the general public not wanting to pay for their services, I am struggling to find someone in my area.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Yeah, this looks to be the case. People seem to be happy to get their cars washed with sandpaper by the supermarket car washers.
    Unfortunately it's looking like I might have to go further afield and get a rental car while its worked on.

    If anyones interested I found a good local detailer. I used Alex at www.valexdetail.co.uk.
    He did a great job on my Golf and for a good price too! I got him to de-badge the rear while he was at it. Looks much better.
