When you decide on a vehicle, remind the dealership to NOT touch the vehicle and get it reconditioned right away by Apollo Detailing. Dealerships use glazes and generally make a muck of a good trade. Used car dealers are the worst. I remember seeing a 1998 Ferrari Spyder a while back at a dealer in Richmond Hill. When I saw it a day or two after its arrival, it was in decent condition and only lightly swirled. One week later after a dealer wash, the Ferrari looked like it had been washed with steel wool and dawn.
Needless to say, I have more advanced techniques.
I could never tell the difference between a 700 dollar BMW "SPA" package from the dealership to a 300 dollar "SUPREME CLEAN" at a auto detailing buisness.
if you ask me those 2 money scams can easily be avoided by going to the maxbimmer detailing forums and doing the shit your self. save your self a pretty penny.
