Though it originally sold only two things—audio products and wireless phones—Car Toys has gradually expanded its repertoire. Today, with 50 locations spread across four states, electronics-certified technicians install everything from Alpine in-dash navigation units to phone-integration systems that sync iPhones, Androids, and tin cans to car stereos. Meanwhile, in the garage, detailing technicians meticulously spruce up cars inside and out, using deionized water, paint-friendly shampoos, and high-quality wash mitts to protect against scratches, swirls, and water spots. The team also sweeps through interiors with vacuums, hot-water extractors, and ozone deodorizing treatment, which kills airborne bacteria and nasty smells in one fell swoop.

Import Auto Center offers a clean space with an educated and straightforward approach to car repair. A synthetic blend oil and oil filter change ($24.50 value for a four-cylinder car; $27.50 value for a six- cylinder car, including tax) gets engines purring and mufflers puffing with the happy fumes of robust vehicular health. A safety and service inspection for four- and six-cylinder autos ($47.38, including tax) ensures the only danger you face in your car is the mind-washing zombie disk-jockeys that rule the AM airwaves. Should an expert serviceman find a worn belt or nearly tapped-out alternator, an impressive inventory of OEM parts (Honda, Acura, Toyota, and Lexus) stands at the ready to facilitate a speedy repair.
