Könings Detailing – Our Story

The driving force behind Könings Detailing is Michael Laskowski, without doubt one of the most experienced detailers and car paint specialists in the industry.

A prestigious background

Mike gained his experience by working on over 5,000 very rare and expensive cars. He worked with some of the most prestigious names in the industry and learnt from the best.

His career began at Jaguar Land Rover, working as a technician and team leader. Mike later joined McLaren as a team member in the paint department; over the years, he became a paint re-work specialist and was one of the most highly skilled people in the department – known as ‘Magic Mike’! For five years, he worked exclusively for the McLaren brand and contributed immensely to the high-quality paint finishes on vehicles released on the market. Actually, if you bought a McLaren vehicle between 2012 and 2017, then Mike will have worked on it!

Mike trained many others and passed on his specialist skills in the art of fine paint detailing and various polishing methods, before moving to Rolls-Royce. There, he supported the launch of the Rolls-Royce Dawn and a new model of the Phantom


“I absolutely loved working in the automotive industry, however I felt like I had missed a few years of my life at that time, because commuting and long hours and periods away from home were becoming more difficult to balance. Thanks to immense experience I’ve gained working with the best in the industry, I knew I could offer to my potential customers a great car detailing experience. That is when I decided to set up my own business. I am developing my customer base in and around Winchester and want to build relationships with local car owners, event organisers and collectors.”

A fresh start in the driving seat

After 15 years serving the high-end car industry, working very long days and often away from home, Mike decided to step away from manufacturing and moved to Winchester, where he now lives with his wife and dog.

In 2018, Mike established Könings Detailing, to bring his wealth of acquired knowledge and experience to a discerning wider audience. What Mike doesn’t know about the paint process – from unprepared parts through to preparation, priming, painting, polishing and protecting – isn’t worth knowing!

Mike’s unique skills and superb craftsmanship mean that he is becoming increasingly sought after for a wide range of detailing services.

In 2020, Könings Detailing moved to a new, prestigious and secure location outside Winchester where the business continues to go from strength to strength.

Mike is also involved with Könings Detailing’s research programme, developing the latest and most advanced paint cosmetics and products for the prestige automotive market.
