Well I should get a discount because I'm an ATS member. $200 bucks is highway robbery.
"highway" robbery. I get it: "highway" Ha ha! I bet you never thought of it so I get the points. Actually it's the market rate for a well-detailed
car, inside and out, looking like it came from the factory when done. This includes multiple applications of professional products such as Zaino,
which can chemically bond with the paint for an eye-popping swirl-free mirror-like finish, complete with separate treatments for chrome, plastic,
wheels, and tires (or tyres), and a complete detailing of carpet and interior not leaving a speck of dust anywhere, much less a french fry or gum
wrapper. Plus a squirt of the "New Car Smell(tm)" and you'll think you drove it off the factory floor. Plus, as an added bonus, for the OCD among us,
it's fun and satisfying to do.
ATS members, such as yourself, are not really a good market segment to target because, as a whole, they are unappreciative and at least pretend they
are poor. Rather than a discount, a surcharge is warranted, if for nothing else but attitude. A smart businesperson would target luxury car delerships
(Acura, Mercedes, Lexus, Jaguar, BMW, etc.) with slick advertising brochures and even negotiate that every new customer be given your material in his
"new car packet," in exchange for a cut of the deal if their customer becomes yours. Yes, that's how it's done.
I say $20 bucks and I'll let you detail it for free.
Actually, I would be willing to pay you $20 for a picture of your automobile, under which I would put the caption: "This is what happens if you don't
pay attention," knowing that would motivate a few folks to sign up for my service, making me several hundred bucks, while also giving me the
satisfaction of knowing you will continue to enjoy living in the squalor that you do. Besides, you can always harvest those french fries for a daily
