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.
Studies show that a vehicle bonds with its owner the most during the first five minutes of its bath. Mr. Brightside Auto Wash ensures a healthy human-car relationship by providing self-serve, manual car-wash systems.

The bays offer lighting during nighttime cleaning and while reading your vehicle a bedtime story. For hands-free cleaning, Mr. Brightside Auto Wash offers automatic car-wash lanes.
Specializing in making cars look their best, the technicians at Colorado Springs Collision Center can repair even the grisliest dents, often without the use of paint.

The bilingual technicians also detail dirty vehicles and write out lifetime warranties on all their repairs.
