San Diego detailer

Anyone know of a great detailer in the SD area. I live in North county.

I have minor imperfections on my M2 and lot of water spots, especially on the rear bumper.

Anyone? I am looking for an artist.

The car:
2019 M2 Competition.

Bumper has a light scratch on the clear coat and water sports all over the car. It needs a good detail.

I would suggest ABC recon on Convoy Street. I am told that he is the guy who does the paint repair work for BMW San Diego. I took my 328i to get my bumper chips, and paint issues fixed. Top class finish.

Did you ever find a detailer? I usually wash my own car but with limited space it's a hassle sometimes so I'd love to have a trusted detailer on hand for the bigger washes.

I did not.

Anyone here can recommend?

I have never found a good detailer in SD.

There was one guy who retired now. I think I might have to look on the detailing forums.

I'm still on the lookout too. I tried two different places in San Diego but found the work to be a little subpar but if I find someone worth recommending I'll pass on the details.

I've had great luck with CE Detail in Sorrento Valley with my Audi S5, a coworker's X3, and another's high-end Mercedes. Regular detail work, Xpel film application, ceramic coating all professionally done. Chris, the owner, was easy to work with.

Really? I did not feel the same when I met him. He sort of sub-contracts the job, I think.

Are you sure it wasn't a partner? A lot of times these shops have a partner enlisted to do specific projects. You can't go wrong with Adonis.

Try 5 Point Auto Spa by Palomar Airport. They have rave reviews and supposedly fair priced.

They aren't as skilled or let's say attention to detail as some others in SD. Another vote for Adonis.

Adonis getting pretty busy wouldnít be surprised he would have a few people helping now. He used to do it all himself. Thatís attention to detail if anything.

I don't often frequent this forum but the best detailer hands down in San Diego County is 5 Point Detail. They're in Kearny Mesa but recently opened another shop in Carlsbad. They're the national distributor for CeramicPro. They also do tints and wraps. If you're a BMW CCA member they offer a 10% discount.

Ask for Adam and tell him that Tom with the Sakhir Orange M4 sent you. He also did my wife's M3 and our Z4 M Roadster.

5 point did my PPF install and I highly recommend them over Adonis. 5 point team, including the owner is a very honest and super customer focused kinda guy. You will know when you see him the first time.

I respectfully disagree. 5 point isn't bad, but Adonis will have more knowledge. I haven't had a bad experience with either.
