Camaro's getting detailed, starting to freak out!

I took my car into a detail shop to get a full detail done, and it's out of my hands for the day (they give free loaners).

Maybe I'm paranoid, but I took down the milage beforehand, and I have visions of this happening...

I check the mileage every time I leave it with someone other than myself. Like yourself, afraid of joyriders. LOL, just recently watched FBDO. That movie is so halarious! Timeless classic from the 80s.

The problem with just taking down the mileage is that they can just say it came in here with something else. I'd recommend taking a picture with your cell phone . I have a personal 'horror' story I've mentioned a few times so I say my paranoia is just caution.

Got the pic, just because I'm sure I would have forgotten what it was otherwise

I'm starting to get the shakes...withdrawal from Camaro...

It will be fine relax. And if they take it for a joy ride just be thankful that you have such an awesome car that can bring joy to others as well.

Use your cell phone to take a picture of the mileage and show it to the guy/gal who takes your keys.

You left your car with someone else?! HAHA! Your honestly asking them to go and drive the thing, I mean, come on, your not around. Just around a block or two won't hurt right? A few unnoticeable rock-chips here and there, no harm done right?

Do yourself a favor, LEARN to detail your own car. If you have as much love for this car as I do, I'd never leave it in the hands of another man, including the dealer, without supervision, YOUR SUPERVISION. Once I learned to detail my car, I couldn't think of bringing it to another man. I can be proud of my work, it's free, and if any damage is incured to the car, I know it's because of my own doing. When I detail my car, it takes me 12+ hours to give it the high class works; washing, drying, claying, washing again, drying, polishing, applying wax, then interior cleaning, engine bay cleaning, exhaust. I clean the entire car. If you don't want to get these panic attacks, learn to do it yourself, it can actually be fun, and if your good enough even make YOU some money.

I bet when you get the car back, it's going to look great though, .....until you see the swirl marks they've added, which only can be seen when you cock your head to the side when your cars exposed to light. Just kidding, hehe, if you left it with them, I hope they know what they're doing.

dont get it detailed?

Seriously, why would it need to be cleaned that good, just spray it down or run it through the auto wash.

Solution? Detail your own car.

Got it back. As far as why get it detailed? It wasn't fully clean when I got it from the dealer, and just wanted to give it the full-meal deal, far better than I could have done. From this point on, I'll be doing my own work on it. And, milage was same, so I feel much better now

Its not the detailers that you have to worry about, its valet parking services that are bad. I had a few friends who valeted in high school and college, after hearing some of their stories about the things they did in cars, I will NEVER valet EVER lol!

Someone once told me that blue cars or really shiny black ones look like water to birds so they are more inclined to poop on them. I didnt think birds preferred to poop in water but it made sense at the time?
