Perhaps you are a person that is very concerned with appearances in your daily life and to that end you are always worried about what people are thinking or saying about your appearance. Since the car is an extension of the self, perhaps you are having a dream of getting a car detailed because it is you who feels like he needs to be detailed a bit. You are the one that needs to take on the new detailing process because you want to look your best.
Taking into account that the car is an extension of the self, you can also say that if you are getting something detailed you are trying to mask the truth in yourself. Auto detailing is a market that is built on the basis of taking something slightly old or unattractive and changing the outside so that it is attractive once more, but no updates are made to the interior or to the components which are what really make a car run. You can wax the hood all you want but until you open it up and change it out, the car is still going to run the same as it did before you started waxing. Basically you probably feel like you yourself are a bit outdated and you want to see what you can do to update yourself a bit. Either that or you are feeling unattractive because of who you are on the inside when really you shouldn’t be worried about changing your appearance but changing who you are as a person.
Sometimes a dream about the world detailed does not necessarily have to relate to cars though. Maybe you just had a dream in which you were able to remember everything exceptionally well and it was all incredibly detailed for you. You can also have a dream about something which has been heavily detailed. To dream of something being detailed such as a car or a general description of something means that your mind is really active lately. Generally the times in which this happens are when you start to really consider an issue of importance to you. When something really serious has happened in your life and when you are trying your hardest to think of something good and nice and instead you come up with something like a really highly detailed dream it means that you need to take just a little bit of time to consider thinking about issues that have been really important to you lately. Thinking long and hard about issues of unequivocal importance to you at your very core is the main reason why people have dreams that involve lots of strong details that are easily memorable when you wake up.
