The presenters at the 2011 Hoodie Awards couldn’t hide their shock when, for the fourth year in a row, Showroom Shine Express Detailing took home the prize for Best Detail Shop, exclaiming, “They defend it every year!” The award was no surprise to the shop’s lengthy list of regulars, a loyal group that includes professional athletes, tons of locals, and the annual Ferrari calendar’s racy centerfold car. The staff sends rides from its lot to gleam in the sunshine, or it deploys its mobile detailing team to you. The meticulous detailing packages cover cars and SUVs from bottom to top as the team members scrub tires, shampoo carpets, wipe consoles, and wash and wax exteriors. They can also tint windows, repair windshields, and clear out foggy headlights.

While customers relax in the waiting area, John's Premium Car Wash technicians scrub sullied chariots with triple-foam polish, scouring undercarriages to expel unsightly chunks of mud, sand, and snow. During the express polish, team members clean and condition paint jobs to remove mild oxidation and preserve a deep and durable shine, and detailing services remove dirt particles from all car crevices. Scotchgard protects against interior spills and stains, and carpet dying restores the original color of worn or splotched fibers. John's Premium Car Wash also offers a 20-point full-service quick lube that includes up to 5 quarts of conventional oil to keep cars running smoothly, like a cheetah sprinting across a moving walkway.

Splish Splash Car Wash welcomes cars into its automatic wash tunnel for quick five-minute baths seven days a week. Once customers redeem their Groupon, a small tag will be placed on their windshield that allows them automatic entry into the wash every day, once a week, or whenever they want to reward their car for changing its own oil. During the ultimate wash, coats of triple-foam polish and LustraShield swarm the outer shell as tire cleaners blast earthy accouterments from the rubber. Applications of bug goo wrestle clingy critters off the exterior, and a procession of rising geysers unhinges grease, grime, and demoted bumper stickers from the undercarriage. Soap and residue dissipate after a spot-free rinse, which reveals an unscathed, glowing finish ready to face a touchless blow-dry that sweeps away remaining moisture droplets.
