    My car is coming up to 5 years old and i think it's time to give it a treat and pay for a professional paint correction/polishing service.

    Paintwork is in very good condition but has the usual slight surface markings/swirls etc etc which are inevitable during daily use and frequent washes.

    Anybody recommend a good company to do this sort of thing?

    Thanks

    Depends on how far you want to go mate, but £300 seems a round figure for a good days work from my checks.

    £300... which makes me wonder what a 'full body machine polish' would be like from williams BMW manchester for £50

    Seems too good to be true that price

    for £50 you won't be getting a detail mate you will be getting a valet totally different things

    oh i know that - still it does say 'machine polish' not valet - but guessing would be a quick whip over the car with no masking edges or anything liek that - must be risky
