How to Detail a Car

Hand Cleaning Leather Car Upholstery

Every Ferrari owner knows that it’s just as important to care for the vehicle’s materials — inside and out — as it is to keep up with routine maintenance. From cleaning the windshield to polishing the finish, every driver should have a car detailing checklist to keep their vehicle pristine. Whether you’re planning to get hands-on and take care of your Ferrari yourself or have a guideline for your detailing expert, Ferrari Lake Forest can help.
