Detailing for me at least is exactly that. i will take each wheel off the car to clean under the arch and the inside of the wheel. That's the attention to detail i go for. Not OCD about it i just enjoy getting out and doing stuff to my car to make it look better. It chills me out. Think the term detailing came from the USA.Hello from the Isle of Wight.
I polished a car once.
I've always wanted to know, why is the OCD version of polishing called detailing, can you explain?
