The Detail Medics – We Bring Your Car Back To Life!

When I saw I had hard water stains on my car the sickening feeling hit me in the guts. One car wash told me that once you have it there’s nothing you can do to take off the stains and you’d have to repaint the whole car. They said that the hard water stains eat away at your car’s clear coat then the paint itself. I literally felt like throwing up when I heard that. I poured over everything I could find online on how to remove the stains but everything seemed it could just as well harm your car as it could take the stains off. Some articles and forums suggested combinations of chemicals that read more like an apothecary’s concoction from ancient times and old wives’ tale of curing potions. Then if you were actually foolish enough to try it yourself, it was a trial and error process that could strip the paint off the car. In short, the cure would be worst than the malady. I was pulling my hair out. Then someone must have taken mercy on me because I found Mike from Pro mobile Auto Detail. I read up on him, his process, looked at his carfolio and read the testimonials and said to my self “Is this guy for real? Car shows go to him to prep their cars? He travels to you to fix your problems? He puts up tents at the location of your car? He has microscopes linked to a computer and special lights? Man, either this is an elaborate hoax or this guy is one of the best.” When I spoke to him on the phone I was very skeptical and did not want to buy into the hype.

Came game day for him to see the car. He traveled from Orange County to West L.A. and even showed up 30 mins early. He brought his special light, paint meter, and inspected the car like a Crime Scene Investigator processing a car for evidence. He pointed out other problems such as swirl marks/webbing and a dull finish due to incomplete prior detail of the car. He answered all my questions with patience. After listening to me attentively and how devastated I was he told me his game plan: he was gonna need the car for 2 days! He said not only will he take off the hard water stains but would like to do preventive care for the car to ensure that other dirt and grime do not eat away at the paint underneath and in between crevices of the car. I was thinking yet again ”Is this guy for real?” He worked with me on the schedule and location where to do the car since we could not do it at my place. He even gave me a ride when I could not drop off the car! What a guy!

2 days later I came to pick up the car and standing in front of me was a shinning car whose finish I did not recognize at first. The paint was shinning like I’ve never seen before, the hard water stains were gone, and the crevices of the car were cleaned. I inspected the swirl marks against the sun and saw a major reduction in the paint’s webbing. The shine on the paint looked like there was dull film over it before that now had been removed. The interior of the car was just as brilliant: leather was supple again and he even removed a stain I was told before could not be removed. I popped the front hood and the hard water stain on the plastic and metal underneath was gone! This guy saved my car! Very few people deliver the hype about them. Mike was courteous, punctual, dedicated, and passionate about his work. This is the guy who’s gonna treat your car problems as if they were his problem. With this level of professionalism, traveling to the rescue of your car, and the level of detail he formulates to treat your car, he could not have picked a better name for his service: Pro mobile Auto Detail. Suffice it to say, he will be working with me on professional car jobs. Thank you very, very much, Mike!



I never even knew what car detailing was before I was referred to Mike by a body shop that did some work on my car. My 6 year old Buick Regal was in pretty bad shape from years of wear and tear, transporting my dogs around town, and general lack of attention. After Mike was done, my car absolutely looked brand new, like it was just driven out of a showroom! The leather seats were gleaming and the exterior was spotless. Mike even cleaned under the hood and in the spare tire well in the trunk. Promobile detailing was completely worth the price and so convenient since Mike came to the house to do the work.

I am convinced that Mike put as much care and attention to detail into my car as he would a Lamborghini or Ferrari. I have already recommended Mike to my friends and will continue to recommend him to anyone and everyone. I couldn’t be more pleased with the work Mike did. His meticulous attention to detail is fantastic and I am absolutely astounded by his work.

Showcar Client from the Italiano Concourso says:
My car looked just fine to me before he started. Just goes to show you what a layman I WAS. The results have been very satisfying. I can wholeheartedly recommend Mike. DESPARADO can also give a perfect satisfaction testimony as well!! as DESPARADO has the cleanest white R8 around. mmobile auto detail form the detailmdics is the best

A TOTAL detail inside, under, outside, engine every nook and cranny. I was hard pressed to find any places Mike failed to enhance. I watched most of the process, and asked what I could do to help…But Mike just said–sit back and watch the MAESTRO with the experience and his exotic products. Even the water was DOUBLE filtrated. He spent a total of 16 hours in two days to finish. One of the wax coats (after first clay barring) was left to sit overnite. After removing this first wax it was my option to clay bar again. Just for that extra bling. So my package is called Paint Correction with Full Detail. I went for the GOLD, because I took this R8 to the Italiano Concourso 8-14-09.
Some TOUGH competition!! My R8 along with 3 others practically stole the show. (From a photographers viewpoint). I shit you not…There was a swarm of picture takers around the R8s (mostly mine ,thanks to Mike) . I didn’t see any swarm of picture takers attacking any of the other Ferraris, Lambos etc. at this show. My head HAS grown a bit larger. And my girlfreind who went with me, still hasn’t stopped talking/laughing about our accomplishment. I do most of the work on my cars myself. It was a recommendation from DESPARADO (Bill) that made me decide to even let Mike touch my car. I am a big baby when it comes to my baby.
Mike made my car look BETTER than new, light lenses, tires,wheels and all. He certainly puts meaning into the word “SHOWTIME” And his array of tools is amazing. I asked if his equipment was new? NOT…He cleans his tools as if they were an ENZO. He even has a Microscope he hooks up to his laptop,the thickest magnifying glass I have seen (apart from maybe the HUBBEL TELESCOPE!), A special halogen light that is brighter than the sun too. He brought his own tarp/canopy, as he did the job in front of my house.
I really don’t think a better job could have been done. Thank-you Mike !!

Mike at Promobile Auto Detail has been taking care of my Nissan GT-R since I first bought it and his commitment to quality shows every time he handles the car. Most recently he did a paint correction procedure for me to take care of a few scratches and wear and tear from time at the track and a couple road trips and it was amazing to see the scratches and surface defects removed (some of which I thought wouldn’t be fixable without a repaint). The changes were visible under both ambient and intense lighting conditions and I can’t ask for anything more. Highly recommended!

I bought my 2004 TL used and the exterior had definitely been through a lot.. swirls and scratches all around, I was hoping for just a reduction in the number of visible swirls. I knew it was really bad. So I decided to go with Mike’s Vintage Detail package and from the outcome there is simply no denying that he has worked diligently and professionally. He did an incredible job and I am thoroughly impressed and elated by the work he has done. Mike has easily exceeded my expectations and like many, many others I am very satisfied.

Mike has been very patient and flexible, I changed my appointment three times on him due to my finicky schedule and he was very accommodating. I highly recommend Mike as I have not met anyone so dedicated and in tune with their craft.

I am so glad to have finally found a real professional detailer like Mike. He did an awesome job with the paint correction on my black 2007 Mercedes E63 and he was able to remediate the work of a previous detailer. It now looks better than when it came off the showroom floor.

I would highly recommend him to anyone that is fanatical about the appearance of their car. I look forward to using his detail and maintenance services in the future for all my cars.

Mike from Pro Mobile Auto Detailing did an absolutely fantastic job on my BMW M6. My car is black and had quite a lot of swirls, so Mike suggested that the Vintage glaze would be the most appropriate on my car. The result exceeded my expectations, almost all the swirls were gone and the car looks amazing. I highly recommend Pro Mobile detailing; Mike is honest, meticulous and extremely hard-working (he worked on my car from 9am to 7pm!). I have had quite a few detailers work on my car and I can say with great confidence that Mike is truly one of the best in Southern California. I look forward to my next detail with Pro Mobile Auto Detail.

I scheduled an appointment with Mike of Pro Mobile Auto Detailing for the Concours Detail on my 2004 Lexus GX 470. Mike arrived the next day at 9AM to work on my SUV and what can I say…QUALITY Pro Detailing. Mike Tawekjian has the best detailing service I have ever used.
Cory Minor


Pro Mobile Auto Detail was able to shine my  the it‘s supposed to!  I took it to Cars & Coffee immediately after their work, and several professional photographers commented on the finish and took many photos.  Their service was detailed, friendly, and professional.  I would recommend them to anyone looking make their car have a true showroom look!

I think I was going for a record this time around because it had been FIVE months since my car last got a bath. I guess that’s one of the disadvantages of living in an apartment. And anyone in Los Angeles will tell you that your car stays clean for about a day and a half after you wash it. I had been searching for a detailer for a number of months, but only in just the last couple of weeks got serious about it because I was sick of having a dirty car.
The trouble was that my detailer back in Florida, where I moved from, couldn’t be beat (pander5 from this board) so the standards were extremely high. I finally found Mike at Pro Mobile Auto Detailing and gave him a call because from what I heard, he is the best of the best out here in Southern California.
We set an appointment and he made the 2 1/2 hour drive out to the San Fernando Valley. All there is to say is that my extremely high expectations were met. Mike arrived at 9AM and worked on the car until 4:15PM. He is truly one of the hardest working and friendliest guys in the biz and pays attention to every detail. Many detailers forget that the world “detail” is part of their job title; not Mike. I’m definitely looking forward to having him come out regularly for that Premium Gloss Wash Service he offers.

Mike from Promobile Auto Detailing took his 100% Mirror Finish Guarantee to my brand new 2009 Nissan GT-R and made it look better than when I drove the car off the dealer lot. His work is meticulous and detail driven and I couldn’t ask for anything more.
On top of the quality of his work, he was also very friendly and very receptive to the many questions I had regarding the treatment. Highly recommended!

Mike Tawekjian of Pro Mobile Auto Detailing is the real deal. He’s the guy you can trust with your auto investment to keep your car looking as good, or in my case better than it did when I drove my ’07 Z06 off the showroom floor.
Dependable mobile auto detailers are hard to find as you may know. Mike always keeps his appointment commitments, and if for some reason he can’t, he will contact you well in advance to re-schedule.
Mike continually provides the highest level of quality in service and materials; he uses McGuire’s products exclusively, and more importantly doesn’t try to sell you some detailing aspect that you really don’t need.
The biggest flaw I’ve witnessed with other auto detail services is they neglect the word “detail”. From my experience, you won’t find that with Mike’s operation. He will always provide his customers with the ultimate in complete auto detail services.

I recently began using Pro Mobile Auto Detail based on a recommendation from of one of my coworkers.
After my first wash appointment, I was immediately impressed with the prompt service, level of detail, and the quality of the products used to clean and enhance the appearance of my Mercedes Benz.
I especially appreciate the careful and gentle treatment given to my automobile during the washing and treatment processes. For the interior, the leather treatment was applied cleanly without leaving any over wipe marks on the windows or any other areas not intended for the leather treatment solution. After the car wash, the outside of the car was clear and bright without any residual water spots or soap streaks.
The price is certainly well worth the quality of service I received. I will recommend Pro Mobile Auto Detail with confidence to my other friends and coworkers.

I am meticulous when it comes to caring for my 2006 Ford GT. I even took a full day class at Meguiar’s to learn how to properly wash, wax, and detail a car. But you know what? It’s a lot of work.
After I saw what a great job that Mike did with my 2005 Land Rover LR3, I decided to relax and have someone else do the detail work for a change. I was confident that I was in good hands, after seeing him work on my LR3 a few days earlier.

My car is black and with the various vents, scoops, and curves, it is not an easy job. But Mike is truly a sports car enthusiast and takes obvious pride and care in what he does.

The end result, as you can see in the , was phenomenal. The car has never looked better, and I have owned it since day one. It’s a driver too, and has over 6,000 miles on the odometer.

Compared to what the commercial high volume detailers charge and how they work, Mike is an excellent alternative, and will do a significantly better and more thorough job.

Mike at ProMobile did a full detail on my 2002 chevy truck that took him most of the day and my truck ended up looking better than new. I had my truck done by another company before and Mikes work is considerable better. I didnt have to drive to his place and it cost me less.
Bruce Crotteau

Mike, you did a fantastic job. I can honestly say you have the best detailing service I have ever used which I think is due to your keen interest in high end cars.
What a Ferrari, Mercedes, BMW owner wants is someone who knows how to get the exterior and interiors back to the original factory finish.  This is an art and requires an artist as I know all to well having personally  tried and failed many times to do it myself.  Excellent work.  Thanks for offering to detail one of my lower end cars a chili red Mini Cooper S.  She is the baby in the family but is a blast and definitely will appreciate your expertise!

My 2005 Land Rover LR3 has been off roaded over rocks, through muddy streams, and dusty trails throughout California. On the interior, it has seen daily duty for my family, and also toured dirt construction sites and playgrounds.

It was definitely long overdue for a thorough cleaning and detail.

Mike, of Pro Mobile, took care and pride in his work. He spent time washing, clay bar, waxing, and polishing it to showroom condition. Every time I close the door or rear hatch, I love the way the now smooth paint feels. It’s like a new SUV.

I was definitely impressed and pleased with not only the result, but the process.

I’ve temporarily postponed my off roading trips, since the car looks so beautiful now, I don’t have the heart to take it off road. The inside is as impressive as the outside too.

Mike worked hard, but also efficiently. I would have no hesitation to recommend him and his services.


Just want to thank you so much for the good experience I had with you on the detail of my boat. What a detail job you did on the boat!! It is beautiful, As you know, the boat is for sale and I know that the appearance will make a difference to a potential buyer. Thank you so much, Mike, for taking such an interest in making the boat stand out and also, for the help you can me on the battery and other items on the boat I know nothing about.I received the greeting card on my e-mail from you . Thank you for your kindness. As far as I am concerned, you went out of your way to be kind and to serve your customer on satisfaction. I know I will see you again as I want you to do my Yukon.
