For Nicholas Newell, it was love at first shift. As a mischievous 4-year-old, he snatched the keys to his mother's car, popped the vehicle into reverse, and started to back out of the driveway. Luckily, Nicholas's mom stopped him before he made it to the street, but his life had already changed—Nicholas had fallen in love with automobiles. As years passed, he spent afternoons washing the family Jeep, until he was finally old enough to purchase his own car: a 1984 Ford Bronco II. He worked tirelessly to maintain the car's clear coat, and along the way, he became an expert auto detailer. It seemed inevitable that he would one day either open his own detailing shop or found a republic where cars have a voice in congress.
At E46 Detailing, Nicholas and his team maintain the interiors and exteriors of most any type of vehicle, from European imports to American muscle cars. They can hand wash paint jobs, treat leather, dress tires, vacuum floors, and perform anything else needed to keep cars looking their best. In addition to these services, the auto enthusiasts also host a monthly European auto club.
