I’ve a little confession to make, since I got my car back in 2009 I never took it to any detailing car wash center or even made polish to the paint, all I did was get some stuff from ACE Hardware and wash it at home when needed. I was asked from a newly opened detailing auto center in Al Rai area called Q Design to pass by to review their services, so I thought to myself ok let’s give the detailing a try and see if it’s worth the hype and money.
A little brief; Q Design Auto Center is a Kuwaiti-based concept for car washing, detailing, tinting, and paint protection ran by two young Kuwaitis. I arrived around 7:30 pm and took a quick tour around the center, it’s nicely designed with a total area of about 1,000 sq. meter. I spoke with the owners who explained their idea, what I liked about them is the transparency, they didn’t give me magical words or promises but they said they’ll do their best to make my car look fresh.
I liked how they divided the cleaning process into steps, first they have registration and checking point to write down any remarks, then there was an auto preparing section where my car was deeply washed from outside, I saw they use special chemicals and equipment for every part of the car which is good, they also used different brushes to clean each part separately such as the rims, exhaust, tires…etc. They also hoisted the car to clean the bottom, I never imagined all this dirt would come off. Then they started cleaning inside my car, the trunk, the leather seats with different tools and special cleansers.
They also had a machine to check the micro scratches for the paint, they said with their full detailing they can remove most of those micro scratches but I’ve to leave the car for couple days, but this time I just wanted to review their regular detailing.
They finished around 9:30 pm, so totally 2 hours but the end result was impressive, the car did look really fresh and clean outside and inside. It also smelt good, and the stubborn stains on the dashboard and paint were mostly gone. I asked them about their prices, they said they have three packages; silver detailing for KD45, gold detailing for KD65, and platinum detailing for KD85, and the normal washing for KD5 and for cleaning the bottom of the car it costs KD7. They said they also offer paint protection (using 3M) for KD180 (currently they are running promotion KD150) and tinting for KD120 including thermal insulation and 5 years warranty.
Personally I was satisfied with their service level and quality. The fun part though is that as I was enjoying my driving my car this early morning it suddenly started raining, but the car still looks cleaner than before.
