I bought my car used 2 months ago and I think the previous owner parked the car in an automatic car wash each nightor at least the paint looked that way.

Couple weeks ago I dropped the car off at Word of Mouth detailing here in Memphis and two of their guys worked on the car from 8:00am until a little after 6:00pm.

Now I just have to make sure the Cadillac dealer doesn't run it through the next time I get my oil changed...

Did you do it yourself or have a shop do it. ? If you did it, would you please tell me what you used. I have some very light ones on my car that I would like to take out. My wifes car
has something close to yours. I need to do hers for sure. Cecil.............

Looks awesome! Having mine done Monday. Black looks awesome but sucks at the same time :)

Looks fantastic! Wish I had the courage and energy to own a black car again.

My car looks like your before pictures. I'd love to get mine detailed but then I'd want to not drive the car.

What did this type of service run? I'm in desperate need of someone good in Vegas... (for my Range Rover)

Looks amazing. Nothing like some TLC to perk up the clear coat.

No, and I've attended one of their detailing seminars and the process is a bit intimidating as you can really damage your paint if you don't know what you're doing.

Man that looks very good. I thought my car had too many swirl marks but nowhere near what your car looked like. I can't imagine how good mine will look when I get a paint correction done.
