I did it once!
Crappy location insomuch you'll have to get a ride from them to the neareset GO train station.
They are not cheap, fly-by-night bunch of hics like you will see elesewhere, but they do fine work.
Guys from Legendary Motorcar (Speedvison programme) use them all the time, so, you'll see Hemi Cudas, and such there.

Another guy you may want to try is Cato's at 148 Cumberland St. (Yorkville area) - he's downstairs in the parking garage.
T. 416-925-6600.
Again, not a fly-by-night outfit - does lots fancy cars for the filthy rich. You'll pay about 300 bucks for a complete job, including the engine shampoo, leather cleaner/conditioner, wax and polish.

The car will look brand spanking new when either shop is done with it.

Just remember - you get what you pay for!
A 100 dollar wax job will look like a 100 dollar wax job.

hell, alex do it from me, I'll give super discount everything for 100 bucks. (half serious though. my dad owns a dealership and I worked there as a detailing man:D ) including engine shampoo, steam vacumming, leather treatment, 3stage waxing. so on and so on

Autobahn
123-A Laird Drive (South of Eglinton, East of Bayview)
416-429-7717

Ask for Mike, he runs this location (he used to work at their central location and the owner sent him to run Laird location about 3 years ago). He has been doing this for many years so you know it is not some kid practicing on your car.

Autobahn is a cheaper than Beverly Hills but also do excellent work on high end cars. You will get excellent value for your money but at the same time don't expect a full shopping list of cleaning for $100.
Their standard wash/wax is all by hand; if you want to remove scratches, then polishing with buffer may be required. Just tell him what you are looking for.

You can mention that Alex with Black 330 sent you (he knows me).

Or you can try their central location at 3211 Dufferin St 416.785.6684, whatever is closer to you.

Not sure. But if you call one of the numbers I listed above, I am sure they have their hours on answering machine.

P.S. If you call Laird location, their phone is sometimes forwarded to Dufferin location. If you are going to make an appoitment, tell them which location is better for you.
I haven't been to their Dufferin location, so they don't know me there.

Just an update:

I ended up calling DAVE (mpower1226) to do it for me. great guy to deal with and the work is amazing. highly recommended. My car was all covered up by swirlmarks and he simply cover them all up with his work (compound, polish and wax). The best thing is, he did it for me overnight, I dropped off the car at 3 A.M and i picked it up the next day. you can't get a shop to do this.

A good detailing job does makes a day and night.
it looks so wet and the shine is really smooth
