Exclamation The Most expensive Car detailing ever

I was just going through another Car forum ...where I came accross this superb post ....read on....

Paul Dalton, the UK’s leading car detailer, has just launched the world’s most expensive ‘wash and wax’, for owners of super-premium cars including the new £840,000 Bugatti Veyron supercar.

About the detail
The Miracle Pinnacle Detail takes 64 hours to complete, over a period of 1-2 weeks
It consists of 61 separate stages (excluding the preliminary paint measurement process), inside and outside the car
At least four layers of Zymol Royale wax are applied, at 24 hour intervals; Zymol Royale is the world’s most expensive wax (£5,800 RRP) and was named after the famous Bugatti Royale
Paul measures the paint before polishing to prevent too much paint being removed in the process
No bucket and sponge is used; they are replaced by a warm water pressure washer and 100 per cent cotton towels
The shine and protection of a Pinnacle Detail should last up to 6 months
Paul has a fully equipped vehicle in the UK, but will travel anywhere; The Pinnacle Detail is available worldwide
At £4,800, the 61 stage car detail costs just over £100 more than the UK’s cheapest hatchback, the Perodua Kelisa 1.0EX
About Paul Dalton
Paul worked at a Ford dealership before discovering a passion for detailing cars. He now has an extensive client list and has detailed hundreds of supercars and luxury cars.

“When the Bugatti Veyron was launched, I decided to create the ultimate detail to do it justice,” explains Paul. “Even a normal valet could devalue it, let alone the use of a bucket and sponge. Hence the Pinnacle Detail, the ultimate detail for the ultimate car.”

It's preposterous that he uses 100% cotton towels! I think Microfiber is vastly superior in many regards.

I disagree and many people who go on car shows also disagree with you on this...
