Err... I am no expert in car detailing... But whats wrong with Carbrite??? Some hidden bad thing I don't know about them? I was given some Carbrite products and I thought it was the best thing I had ever used (obviously coming from mediocre products like Turtle Wax, anything is an upgrade lol)

I have been using Detailing Depot in Oakville, and been happy with them.
Premier will do a good job too.

Ever notice that your black cars don't look as nice after the first, second, and third washes? That's because they use fillers.

I NEVER use fillers of any kind, unless requested by the customer. Each defect is removed, no matter how much time it takes. So after several months, your paint should still look good as new.

This is the Apollo Detailing philosophy.

I will demonstrate it for you if you like, or you can do it yourself. Apply Isopropyl Alcohol mixed 50/50 with distilled water and apply to the surface of your paint. Remove with with a microfibre cloth.

Voila, if there are swirls reappearing, that means your car had fillers.
