For 30 years R & D Automotive has pampered and primped German automobiles, catering to collectibles, racecars, and everyday street vehicles. Car aficionados can restore the innards of their four-wheeled steeds with an oil change, which incorporates a factory filter and a dose of fresh synthetic oil to impress passengers with a smoother ride and a healthier engine. The four wheel-alignment services employ state-of-the-art Hunter-alignment systems—whose computerized alignment sensors attach to the outside of the tires, rather than the wheel—to ensure sensitive tires don’t get damaged. Signs vehicles need alignment include excessive tire wear, vibrating steering wheels, and cup holders curled in the fetal position.

Colonial Car Wash's octet of basic exterior washes keeps the outer hull of your road-ship unsullied by gunk, funk, and air pudding, so that it always looks like it just drove out of a commercial. The trinity of Rain-X-enhanced cleanings keeps your shining steel steed spotless and streak-free, with a high-gloss formula that repels rain, snow, and slurs against Andrew Jackson written on the hood's dust by bitter, wandering Whigs.

Boxley Services' friendly auto-body beautifiers have preened and primped Capital Region roadcrafts for more than 50 years. The deluxe wash begins with a thorough hand wash, followed by a tire dressing, sparkling of windows, and interior vacuuming to clear cockpits of crumbs, gum wrappers, and orphaned jelly beans. Alternately, the exterior-focus detailing package eliminates car skin contaminants with a meticulous scrubdown including removal of brake-dust build-up on wheels and polishing of rims. Before reuniting drivers with their four-wheeled friends, detailers swathe auto façades with a thick coat of wax to stave off wayward weather and incontinent pigeons.

Tint World’s automotive detailers have been tinting car and truck windows since 1982. What started as a single location in Tamarac, Florida mushroomed across the state, and eventually led to locations in Oklahoma, North Carolina, and California. At each franchise, automobile specialists keep roadsters looking sharp and running resolutely with meticulous detailing packages, state-of-the-art auto audio and video systems, and custom wheels and tires. They still perform their original service, tinting car windows with a precise, computerized method that prevents harsh UV rays from distracting drivers, overheating interiors, and leaving dashboard hula dancers with unsightly tan lines. To keep its clients protected and comfortable in all aspects of their lives, Tint World has expanded their tinting services to include residential, commercial, and boat windows.
