We can colour and wet sand the surface flat then polish to a mirror finish. Prices vary per vehicle and time required to perform the highest quality finish, please contact us for an accurate quote.


Most experts advise to have your car detailed every 4-6 months. This will keep it looking and feeling like a brand new car whilst providing interior protection from the sun, wear & tear and other environmental factors.

As well as hatchbacks, family cars SUV’s & off road trucks, we specialise in detailing prestige vehicles to have them looking like they have just came off the showroom floor. From a basic detail package to the ultimate detail, each and every customer is insured they will receive value for money with the service of our trained & experienced detailing technicians leaving your vehicle looking radiant.

Each car detailing service is different at our Sunshine Coast car detailing centre. Depending on the size and state of the car the time may vary. In order for us to provide an accurate quote it is best to bring the car in.

A smaller car will obviously not take as long as a truck or SUV, size is a major factor when it comes to accounting for the time frame to detail a car to our high standards.

Professional products which cannot be purchased over the counter of a retail shop, we use high end industrial equipment to make the job easier so it does not take as long as it may take someone at home or a mobile car detailer attempting to carry out a mobile service who does not have access to the wide range of equipment, we have acquired the best tools, equipment & technicians we could find.

Know your vehicle is in the best hands at Auto Emporium as our technicians are all car enthusiasts we live & breath the automotive culture here on the Sunshine Coast.

Today many people are opting for ceramic protectants rather than a standard wax. This is because they provide a more reliable cover with stronger durability. Being resistant to the harsh sun & heat, environmental & rancid contaminants means this coating penetrates deeper than the surface.

9H hardness ceramic coatings are the choice of auto enthusiasts all over the world, not just on the Sunshine Coast.

Wax is applied to the car and sits over the paints surface however does not create a chemical bond like the ceramic coatings do.

Now we come to the sealant. This would be on parr with the second level of protection. Generally sealant is more expensive than wax but at the same time will provide at least 6 months to 1 years worth of protection on your car.

A polymer sealant bonds to the paintwork better and also has higher heat resistance.

The protective paint products used and offered at the our Sunshine Coast car detailing shop is like a liquid polymer sealant that chemically bonds to the vehicles factory paint, forming a layer of protection on the car.

This is called ceramic coatings and using this product at our car detailing shop makes it much easier to wash and clean the the paint as it creates a super hydrophobic surface that repels water, dust & dirt. This type of protection can last anywhere from a couple of years to a lifetime depending on the protection used and also how often the car is used.

It is important to remember that we offer scratch and paint repairs to improve the appearance or your paintwork, however we do not offer cut rust and weld patch panels. We do offer surface rust preparation prior to paint repairs.

We are happy to recommend another top local business that will take care of you if you cannot provide the full service required.

Exterior detailing includes cleaning and restoring or exceeding the vehicles original condition of the surface. This is usually paint with a shiny finish, chrome trim, windows, wheels and tyres as well as other visible segments on a vehicle’s exterior.

Each and every detail that is completed by the Auto Emporium team is thorough yet affordable. Surfaces and materials of the vehicle are restored back to prime condition while the paint protection will protect the surface from harmful rays and other environmental factors such as bird poo and insects.

Exterior detailing consists of decontamination which is usually done with a soap like solution and clay bar followed by paint correction and then either a wax, sealant, or ceramic coating is applied for protection.

It is important to take car of your vehicles interior as well as the exterior. Cleaning the surfaces only removes the dirt & grime from visible areas.

It’s no secret that the harsh QLD sun creates damage and drys out parts of your car when left out in the harmful uv rays not to mention fading the paint work.

This detail includes vacuuming the floor mats, carpets and dash surfaces to cleaning & polishing the vinyl, removing the seats, carpet shampooing followed by leather conditioning.

Interior Surfaces Cleaned

The interior of a car easily collects dust & dirt which builds up to grime. A professional interior detail is guaranteed to remove dirt, dust, grime and also stains that you can’t usually get out with general cleaning products as well as reaching to those hard to reach places like the cracks and crevices you cannot get to on your own while improving the appearance and condition of the upholstery.

This service includes all surfaces including the dashboard, console, door interiors and under the seats which are removed for maximum benefit.

Leather Seats & Surfaces Restored

Leather is different to standard upholstery & requires appropriate treatment & conditioning. Standard products can be damaging and may end up doing more harm which is why it’s important to only use reputable quality interior protection products.

Each and every surface will be professionally cleaned and conditioned which will assist in returning the leathers condition to its natural state while protecting it from future damage such as spills and stains. 

Carpet Cleaning

upon removal of the seats, all of the carpets will be properly shampooed, dried and deodorised. The team at Auto Emporium have been trained to get every single bit of dirt and dust out from where the seats sit and ensure to remove any stains bringing back that new car feeling.

A car wash is generally some soap and water that is used to get the primary dirt off the outside of the vehicle and maybe a vacuum over the inside.

A vehicle that has been detailed on a standard level can generally take anywhere from 3 hours up to half a couple of days in a professional wash bay. This type of package includes full exterior wash, claying, polishing and waxing to remove scratches.

The interior cleaning includes washing, shampoo, removal of dog hair and other hard to move nasties which are easier to get to once the seat removal is completed along with windows cleaned, steaming, dash & upholstery (restoration for leather) and fabric protection.

A professional detailing service from a reputable car cleaning company like ourselves does not skimp on the minor details. Our car detailing Sunshine Coast cleaning service goes above and beyond for each and every job, ensuring every spec of dirt and dust is removed in order to have your car look brand new again.

Our Caloundra car detailing services provide other services upon request, such as steam-cleaning engine bay area, paint touchup (protection paint) and full paint correction services.


There is many Sunshine Coast car detailing & mobile service operations that offer detailers who come to the clients local home or office and provide cheaper car detailing packages.

Although most of these car detailing businesses do a fantastic job, they can tend to lack some of the most important equipment required to complete a high end finish as they simply cannot carry all the equipment around that our shop is already equiped with.

Our car detailing business and car wash sector has been growing for over 10 years and today we have the complete range of the best products and equipment on the market.

If you want guaranteed results with a prompt turn around time we highly recommend to get in touch with our Caloundra detailers to discuss your car detailing options. No job is too big or too small, call our amazing car detailing team for an obligation free quote.

Fantastic service from Robin and the team! Very thorough and efficient. Scratch repair looks great
A combination of great tradesmen who know how to mix difficult paint mixes and apply the paint & blend it in so you can’t see where the repair was made. I hope I don’t have to use them again because of my careless driving but if I bugger up that is where I will go.

Great service and repairs. I had a dent in the cab of my 2021 f250. 2 other local panel shops didn’t want to repair it as the f250 is all aluminium and was all to hard.I called in on Wednesday and was told no worries and they repaired it the next week.Great service Great Repair the next week Great people Thank you.
The customer service from Robin and his team has been fantastic. These guys have an incredible eye for detail, I had my Range Rover overhauled and I couldn’t be happier with the result.
Best panel beater on the coast by far. Robin went the extra mile to get my car that was heavily damaged all fixed up and very fair pricing. Would recommend 100x over! Thanks Robin and the team!!
Highly recommended the team at Auto Emporium. Had my C63 wheels repaired and resprayed to factory with the addition of yellow brake callipers.As can be seen, the team lead by Robin did an awesome job and the wheels now look like they've just come new out of the factory.The team there is very professional and pride themselves on their work. Robin was great to deal with and their prices are very competitive.
Great service by a great team. Highly recommended if you’re in need of quality and easy service.
Robin has done a great job with my Patrol, exactly how I wanted it. Always great to have competent professionals locally at the coast.
Told 4 weeks & $10k for a complete outside paint job. Quoted $600 for brake calliper painting. 11 weeks later charged me $800 for brake calliper painting because price as gone up. Had the car been completed when they said it would be ready, would the price had gone up. Fuel tank was bone dry. Running on vapours. But I dropped it off with 3/4 tank. Mind you every complaint I made to them they told me they were professional. Like Why 4wks took 11wks. Why the car hadn't been touched within the first 4 wks.Had some dramas in the shop. Yep constantly told by them they were professional. Well, I finally go to pick my baby up. I gave them an extra day seeing as their track record was it was never ready when it was supposed to be. Low & behold they've just started washing it and gotta put the plates back on. Other than that it's now ready for me to take home. Ha, after stopping to get fuel, which he claims is only $20 not the $120 it cost me, I notice noises coming from the front of the car. Get home all the under panels are coming off. Plugs missing, not put in properly. 1 tailight, 1 brakelight opposite side to tailight, 1 reverse light, 1 headlight, 1 parking light front opposite to headlight all not working. But they're professional remember. Next day I take the car down to get new tyres put on, I get called out by the tyre fitter to show me the side skirts weren't on properly & could fall off at any time. How I got home with them still hanging there is a mystery. When I phoned the professional to complain, he did say to bring it back & he would fix any problem. But my problem is these professionals had the car for 11 wks and they didn't put it back together properly. Broke parts and said it was the cars age. But they're professionals. Also broke my car door lock and said they'd replace it with a lock & key from the wreckers. 1 key to unlock & 1 to start it. But they did say i had keyless entry. Such professionals. So would you let them touch your car. There's more they did wrong , but I won't go into that. I think you get the idea how professional they are. Especially when it's your pride and joy. I've been left gutted.
I'm stoked with the results of my Chrome delete, tint and other modifications done by Auto Emporium!Quality work at a great price, thanks guys.
Highly reccomend auto emporium, yes you may pay more but its for quality. Robin was easy to deal with made suggestions to help you choose on what he thinks would look good if you havent already made your mind up on what look you want. My y62 now looks like it should coming out of the factory!
Robin and the team went above and beyond in working to improve the look of my vehicle. I was extremely happy with the effort they put in. Talking to Robin his passion for cars was evident which reflected in his business as a whole. I highly recommend Auto Emporium to anyone who wants to improve the look of their vehicle.
Robin and the boys did a fantastic job on the paint protection and badge removal! Highly recommend
Car looks immaculate after taking it to these guys. Very friendly staff and very knowledgeable. Went above and beyond. Highly recommend 😊
Impeccable service and delivery.I got to speak with the owner of the business. He took the time to explain options and outcomes.The final delivery was flawless.The price was more than I expected to pay when I walked in.But after a thoroughly professional consultation, I left my items happy in the knowledge that I would receive great value for money.And I did.Pick up was beyond my expectations.Auto Emp is now my ‘go to’ for all future projects.If you don’t go there, I’m certain you will miss out on some small part of your dreams for your toys.
Very happy with my experience with the team from Auto Emporium. They did exactly what I wanted and explained their process in detail so I knew what I was getting done. Will be back
Robin and his crew did a chrome delete and Ceramic coating on my Patrol and they absolutely knocked it it out of the park. I couldn’t be happier with the result and highly recommend them.
Awesome work. Had my wifes brake callipers sprayed yellow, turned out perfectly! The guys did a great job. Thanks Robin!
