Not quite, there is a big difference between a wash to prep for a proper detail as there is for a wash on a car post detail. but thats a whole nother thread.

I wouldn't get hung up on a specific number of points so to speak, it is fairly irrelevant.

Exactly its all relative as to what you are going to do but just a post detail or top up wax can have 20 steps if you sat down and listed them...
Heck 22 years ago i would say im off out to clean the car and 6+ hours later i would come back in having just finished it..

I agree with all the others the more points you put on your valets the more the customer thinks they are getting. It is just a selling tool. You can have as many or as few points as you like.We do as many stages as needed for that valet
