Dubai has no shortage of detailing and car workshops, but having tried quite a few of them, Crystal Shine definitely stands apart from the rest. I recently purchased a Nissan Patrol which was a limited production version, but unfortunately had been used by a family with kids before me. The car was parked outdoors and the paint had faded from the sun. The shared parking lot it was parked in meant a lot of scratches and more than a few door dings. The interior was dirty, and the seats were not only a different shade from the original, but one even had chewing gum in it (very difficult to remove).
After buying the car, I took it to a neighboring garage for some paintless dent removal work and attempted to have it polished by them. I brought the car immediately after to Crystal Shine, where the owner Adel was very quick to point out the shoddy job done by the previous garage. I had originally brought the car to Crystal Shine with the simple intention of having it cleaned, but a short conversation with Adel convinced me the man knew what he was talking about and could potentially do more to improve the car’s condition even further.
Crystal Shine did a thorough interior clean, not only managing to restore the seats to their original color, but also getting out the chewing gum that had been rubbed into them. I initially wanted to have the car ceramic-coated for an extra shine, but despite my wishes as the customer, Adel advised me against wasting my money as the car’s paint coat was far from the condition they required it to be in. Under promising, and over delivering, Adel had me leave the car with them for a few days, as they attempted to restore the car’s paint to see if I could still apply some protection to it.
The results were beyond amazing, with them undoing a year’s worth of sun damage, and almost completely taking out all the car’s scratches. The ceramic paint protection I had applied is brilliant, and gives the car a factory-finish permanent shine and protection from new scratches and Dubai’s harsh sunlight. All of this was very fairly priced, and there is not a shred of doubt that you are getting your money’s worth. Having seen the miracles these guys are able to work, I definitely will not hesitate to partner with them for my next car restoration. My Nissan Patrol was basically turned back into factory-new condition – I’ll let the pictures do the talking for me! Thank you Adel!
