    Does anybody have a car cleaner they would recommend in Sydney? I need to get "The Homer" cleaned and I've run out of excuses to take her into Tesla for minor fixes and scam a free clean at the same time.

    Yes, I would like to know too. Funny, I created a similar thread the other day trying to get some recommendations. Mobile car wash would be handy.

    I can't nominate a 'car washer' as all the mass car wash cafe's process is flawed, resulting in paint swirling at best.
    If you use one of theses services there is a trade off.
    I bought a pressure washer and a foam lance attachment and try and keep the car as clean as possible between washes. If the car gets dirtier I use the 2 bucket system.
    Yearly I have the car detailed and the Opti Coat topped up by Reflect Effect in Parramatta.

    Thanks meloccom, my car cleaning attempts have been pretty bad in the past, gave up a long time ago. I just get impatient and rush towards the end. I do however have a pressure washer. I may try and give that a go in the interim until I find someone good.

    We can't wash here. We are in a strata block of terraces with no wash bay and we're within 150m of the harbour so we aren't allowed to wash on the street (unless you live at #14 but then what the hell do rules mean to you...but I digress). So I was hoping for a recommendation on where I could take the car to be cleaned, other than a dreaded car wash cafe or underneath a Westfield...

    I do much the same as Meloccom. Opticoat goes a very long way to making the process easier. There are one or two mobile applicators of the product who also offer detailing service and I would expect them to take more care of your finish on a regular detail than a car wash cafe.
