About Us

Brief history of LUSTR Auto Detail, your car detailing specialists…

LUSTR Auto Detail originated in 2007 out of passion for fine automobiles and enthusiasm for their proper aesthetics through quality car detailing.  At the time, Ivan was an avid car enthusiast and very meticulous BMW owner, extremely displeased with the available car detailing services in the Chicagoland area.  Through a lot of research and experimenting with car detailing products and techniques, Ivan quickly learned the hard way that detailing wasn’t just your average wash and wax.

Detailing became an art form and the goal was to constantly be amongst the select few within the industry in terms of experience, knowledge and quality.  After its start in 2007, LUSTR quickly became the place to go for proper auto detailing services in the Chicagoland area.  Our foremost purpose is to fulfill the needs of caring owners and enthusiasts who share with us the high standards of car care and paint maintenance.

Who we are…

Ivan Rajic is the owner/operator of LUSTR Auto Detail.  He’s been involved in the car detail scene since 2002 and has been detailing since 2005.  Whether it’s his care for automobiles or the background in Architecture, Ivan is detail oriented and this translates well within his detail business.  His passion and care for everyone’s vehicles is what made LUSTR known for its professional demeanor and high quality.  His favorite car is the E36 BMW M3.

Roman joined LUSTR in 2012 and has been the clone Ivan was hoping to find in an assistant, manager and partner.  His attention to detail and passion for perfection is unmatched and is what has helped LUSTR grow to where it is today.  Roman has years of detailing knowledge and assists on a regular basis with the testing of newer products and technologies.  His passions lie within the Supra and Lexus community.

What we do…

Whether performing a thirty hour long paint correction process for an exotic sports car or a five hour light polishing on a family sedan, we approach each job with the same passion and precision in order to consistently provide outstanding results.  The focus has always been on developing a process tailored specifically for each vehicle and we do this by providing a Pre-Detail Assessment before scheduling any detailing work.  This free service is greatly appreciated by all our clients as they get to see what results can be expected before scheduling, so they already know for what they’re hiring us.

By utilizing our experience, knowledge, and a meticulous mindset, we always employ the best and safest methods, tools and products to push every single car we detail to its full potential.  We stand firmly behind all our work and always attempt to get results far beyond the clients’ expectations.  Our Portfolio page and great reviews on many other websites speak for themselves and justify why LUSTR Auto Detail can consistently guarantee satisfaction, and more!
