We Wash III is a full-service auto appearance, repair, and customization facility that specializes in ride beautification. A platinum wash special is a total vehicular makeover that takes 10–12 minutes. In addition to a premium hand wash, your wheelmobile will receive a tire and rim wash and a full interior vacuuming that removes crumbs, dust, and old copies of Rodney Dangerfield's autobiography. A tire glaze helps rubber-wrought wheels look their best while careening down the highway, and a thorough window wash will allow interested bystanders crystal-clear views of your dashboard toothbrush collection.
Technicians at the 6,000-square-foot West Loop Auto Spa hand wash cars from bumper to bumper with professional-grade products. During full-service washes, the technicians go the extra mile to clean glass, vacuum interiors, and wipe down the dash and rims, while customers test-drive the shop's complimentary WiFi. With their detailing services, they shampoo all mats and carpets, clean leather, and finish crossword puzzles tucked under the seats. In addition to washing and detailing, they also offer dent-removal services and window tinting.
The factory-trained automotive technicians at Gateway Auto Service repair vehicular glitches to keep automobiles running smoothly and safely. With same-day service, expert mechanics quickly diagnose and perform curative conservation measures on domestic, imported, and classic cars, SUVS, trucks, and minivans. Automotive underbellies are kept in good working condition with general and electrical maintenance, engine repair, and brake checkups, and a visit to the auto spa pampers rides with carpet shampoos and window tinting that will keep drivers’ feet clean and faces anonymous.
Most car-wash lounges don't give customers a hotel-lobby vibe. However, the one at Tempus Auto Spa gets pretty close, surrounding guests with marble countertops, exposed-brick walls, and large windows that cast sunlight onto posh furniture. As they wait here for their vehicle, visitors can sip gourmet coffee or browse the Internet at computer stations. The designer bathrooms' warm colors add to the ambiance—even they are part of the venue's mission to pamper cars and people simultaneously.
CS magazine highlighted Tempus Auto Spa as one business that "make[s] daily duties super swanky." As its waiting area charms clients with all that's chic, so its services indulge vehicles with careful cleaning and detailing. The technicians rely on their own meticulousness instead of traditional car-wash machinery and giant car dunk tanks, even refusing to use mitts and towels for more than a single hand wash. The same manual attention goes into their most comprehensive treatments—the Spankin New Look complete exterior and interior detail, for example, includes an engine cleaning, which technicians can do with steam or by hand.
Ready your ride for the impending holiday road trips and holiday demolition derbies with today’s Groupon: $20 gets you a conventional oil change at Midwest Performance Cars (a $50 value). Your Groupon includes five quarts of Castrol conventional oil (you pay the difference for more than five quarts). Suddenly, and without warning, the unforeseen occurred. Doug’s car began making a sputtering noise. The smoke coming from his exhaust was no longer a beautiful, ashen tabby-gray, but a thick plume of black-cat black—the color of bad luck. He mashed the brake and thrust the car into stoppage gear, lurching to the pit-stop pit like a three-legged alligator.
