Is There Any Really Good Detailing Place in The Bay Area?

I just purchased an 04' M3 and was wondering where the best place is to get it washed or detailed without getting swirl marks because it is black and they stand out. I KNOW the best thing to do is to wash it myself but sometimes I just dont have time to wash it and I hate it when it looks dirty.

If you're cars not lowered, goto Marlin's carwash in Santa Clara, Stevens Creek car dealer area. I used to wash my previous 330i there before it was lowered. At first, i was worried about swirls and such, but I figured that if I did get swirls, i'd just use some 3m swirl remover on the whole car.

But back to topic, they didn't put any swirls on my car and my car is black too. So its pretty easy to see everything.

But if you can, just DIY. Nothing else is better. Especially with ZAINO!!
