While the techs at Coast Carwash are experts at washing dirty autos, their expertise doesn't end there. They've got everything they need to make sure grungy cars leave looking as good as the day they drove off the dealership lot. Waxes by Meguiar's and Nanoskin help seal in the car's restored shine and repel incoming filth, while Meguiar's leather treatments keep seats and other interior surfaces soft, supple, and crack-free. While they're inside, techs can also freshen the upholstery and carpets, shine all gauges, switches, buttons, and vents, and remove any foul odors left behind by forgotten take-out containers or hitchhiking trout salesmen. Tears in upholstery or isolated scratches on the car's finish are swiftly brought to rights, and the crew can also handle full headlight restorations or repair cracked windshields to ensure each auto drives away safely.
The team of professional chauffeurs at Shack's Luxury Limousines could tell you some stories. But they don't because they're professional.

In the client's choice of vehicle, drivers spirit singles, groups, or demanding alien overlords wherever they'd like to go, from weddings and proms to parties and airports. Frequent rollers can sign up for membership in Shack's VIP Limo Club for regular pickups and drop-offs and access to the bar, which comes stocked with Grey Goose, Patron, champagne, or other select bottles.

Gabriel Mejia lathered his first car in 1985—a modest attempt that soon blossomed into a full business serving Boca's prestigious clubs and neighborhoods. As his clientele increased, his number of arms didn't, so he taught a small crew how to perfectly replicate his hand-wash technique by strengthening their muscles with lead shoulder pads. Today, Gabriel's 12 mobile technicians perform washing and detailing services around town with the help of 10 fully equipped vans. When they aren't polishing roadsters, they also re-dye leather, remove dents, and block UV rays with window tinting.
