The Most Expensive Car Wash in the UK

(YouTube Link)

If you have about $11,000 to spend, Gurcharn Sahota will give your car the most thorough cleaning imaginable. Each car can take up to 250 hours of effort, in part because Sahota uses a microscope to examine the car for blemishes. Here's how he starts:

Gurcharn first sprays the car with a degreaser to loosen any mud then jet washes it to get the worst off.

Next he wipes the vehicle with a lambs-wool mitten dunked in warm soapy water before jet washing it again.

Gurcharn sprays the car with mild wax solution to reduce the risk of scratching before drying it with a microfiber towel.

The final stage uses a special clay which is rubbed over the paintwork with wax to remove any impurities.

He then polishes up to five times using a buffer and an abrasive compound.

A paint gauge is used throughout the cleaning to check how much clear coat and colour there is to work with on the body work.

And a microscope linked to a computer allows him to view bad scratches in detail.

There are loads of pro detailers out there who work to these standards. This guy and a few other have just managed to do a good bit of marketing.
Nothing new here but the marketing has worked seeing as it's been in the daily press.
Good luck to the guy.

this is only an EXTERIOR cleaning? no under the hood degreasing?

and at $11k, wouldn't it be smarter to just have the car repainted?

i'd pay $1,000 if someone could get every last bit of playa from burning man out of my car. but we all know that's impossible.
