Default Re: Car cleaning & washing at the service center, or an independent shop outside?

My service centre visits are limited to once a year (touchwood) during the car servicing and even then I do not opt for any additional cleaning & washing from them. It's not only about money but also about the quality of the job.

At any busy ASS, there are 30 to 40 cars at any given point of time and the time given for cleaning the car cannot be more than 10 mins (on average). Also, car cleaning is not the primary job ASS so they generally don't put that much effort also. It's primarily limited to jet wash, vacuuming and putting that "Welcome" paper on the floor mat.

At the car washes / detailing shop, they not only give more time to clean the car but since cleaning is their primary job they do better justice to the money spent. Of course, they do upsell other cleaning packages/treatment but as long as you know what you are getting into, I guess it's better to go for car washes / detailing shop.

Having worked as a service advisor, I can tell that washing is the biggest bottleneck at every service centre. Service centre having 50 service bays would also have just 4 washing bays. They struggle to wash their own service cars on time. Not sure if they would really entertain cars just for washing.

Prefer getting it done outside, unless offered free as mentioned above too. Tried Metro Motors a couple of times but its been really meh.
Hope its the right thread to ask, any reccos for a good independent shop in South Mumbai preferably?
Need to get my 7 yr old C200 detailing done. Also what should I ask for especially to treat the ‘yellowing’ of the white exterior & upholstery as well. Thanks!
