Default Got a new Part Installed, and can anyone recomend a good Detail Shop?

Well I had the guys at The Power Source install my 3" Downpipe. Pretty good pull all around. Next will be the Cat-Back setup. Wanted to do it all at once, but the for a full Turbo Back (even buying the DP and Cat-Back seperatly). Was still over $1000.00, do yall have this problem too? Freaking spendy exhaust's, lol. The Guys at The Power Source did a really good job. Didnt even really have to make a appointment Also can anyone recomend a good Detail Shop?

When I was there, they quoted some kid $70 for exhaust install (1hr). Might have been $30 but I think Im just tired and have that number stuck in my head for some reason....

Ok yeh I have heard of Real Deal (Always on the Radio and what not) so you would say they are "Top-Notch"?

And yeh it costed me $70.00 for the install (Hours worth of work, which it would have taken me about 2 hours or so, lol). I am going to have them install my Exhaust to when I get it.

I don't let Detail shops touch my car. I do all my own detailing, I have all the stuff to do it. But, i have heard the real deal is ok. I hate it when they put armor all on everything .

**** they better not use "Armor All", I hate that stuff. Any "real" detail shop would never use Armor All. Anyways. Its not really the outside part that I cant do, its the shampoo and what not on the inside. I have a beige intereor. A freaking pain to clean, and after a winter like we had, its not to pretty on the inside. Next year I am getting rubber floormats

I dont really know how good of a Job Eero does. They dont detail they out source to the shop like right next door, lol. But me and my girl at the time both bought Jetta's about 4days apart, and I wouldnt say they did a good job detailing either. I decided to go with "Strictly by Hand", it was highley recomended to me. They charge about twice as much as Real Deal. But they can get me in tommrorow. And said they work on each car about 10hours. So it should turn out pretty good.

I suggest that you wait if you can and let real deal do your car, anything you do not want done to your car (armor all) they will not do. it was 80$ when we had ours done and they do everything by hand. the inside of our car in the winter had never looked so good. we liked the fact that unlike the dealerships they did not put any perfume, powdery smelly stuff in our car. tinting was not damaged , they do not mess with your stereo ect. we had a great experience. maybe someone should hit em up for a group rate for the club !! hint hint kris!

Why didn't you try to attempt to install the downpipe yourself? I would have done it for half that price or even a case of beer. Damn, just feed me and I'd be happy. Let me know when you're ready to do the exhaust.

If you don't use Armor All, what do you recommend?

Well my dash is kind of odd, where it doesnt take a shine good, the texture on it is not smooth, kind of rough. I found that Meguires Shine is pretty easy to manipulate, and can get good results.

You know I should have hit you up and helped me do the DP install. lol. Part of the reason I went with Power Source, is that I just walked in and mentioned it, and Bam, they could pull me right in. You know, Just got the part that day, thought it would be awesome to get it on the same day. But yeh that sounds good. Exhaust will be comming soon, and I will have to get you to help me out with that. And then buy you a $35.00 meal, Maybe try to tackle the springs too. My car is starting to remind me of a SUV.

Yeh the only thing is, is that you have to cut off part of the stock exhaust. I am sure that is easy to, seeing how people are doing it on the vortex in less then a hour. Hey, how hard are clutch/flywheel installs? lol.

On my car HARD. You have to unbolt the engine and raise it up to get the tranny unhooked so you can install it. I didn't do it for my car. I had EERO do that for me.
