Trust local GM dealer to detail camaro?

I live in a small town and don't really have a suitable place out of the sun to detail my car. I can get it booked in at GM and get it detailed inside and out for around 200 bucks. Should I trust them?

$200.00 is a little "steep"!

If you choose to have them do it, I'd make sure and be present during the detailing.

Personally, I'd take that $200.00, buy a nice supply of detailing products, and find a friend with a garage who will let you use it for a couple of hours.

Make sure it is not HOT outside or you will spend hours rubbing the water spots out

My dealership did an awesome job. 200 bucks may be steep, but I look at it at like this:

Get car detailed by Dealership: $200
Go in to work a 12 hour OT Shift @ $64/hr while my car gets detailed= $768

I suck at washing my car, it takes me at LEAST 4 hours to do everything perfectly right, inside and out, so 4 hours @ $64 = $256

I basically Lose $56 to detail the car by myself when I could be working overtime instead.
