Seven days a week, the trained technicians at Ultimate Car Wash & Detail Center usher dirty automobiles through a drive-through wash before manually vacuuming and wiping down their interiors. In addition to these general cleaning treatments, they perform detailing services such as headlight restoration and flux-capacitor calibration.
Gotham Dream Cars lets drivers grip the throttle of exotic speed machines such as the Ferrari F430, Lamborghini Gallardo, Aston Martin DB9, and Bentley Continental GT for personal rental or specialized thrill experiences. During the Dream Car Sprint, auto enthusiasts slip into Ferraris or Lamborghinis on a closed course and whip their more than 500-horsepower ride three times around the autocross track, learning how to tame their power with the aid of an instructor before coming out of the third lap on a straightaway to open the engine up to its full potential. Riders conduct an orchestra of firing pistons and camshafts for three laps before crossing the finish line and parking to the pianissimo of the softly purring V8 engine. Gotham Dream Cars snaps pictures of the sprint, so drivers are sent home with hands they will never wash and a CD of images to parade before jealous coworkers and humbled shopping carts.

Hollywood Shine can also take apart, clean, and restore headlights.
Bear Transmission’s ASE-certified mechanics revive shopworn engines with oil and transmission fluid changes. Each oil change outfits vehicles with pristine new filters that strain particulates and other contaminants from quarts of fresh standard oil, lubricating engines’ delicate parts to reduce wear, strain, and restless piston syndrome. During the transmission service, techs hone in on the hydraulic system, whose specialized transmission fluid helps regulate clutches, planetary gear sets, space telescopes, and other nuanced machinery. After mechanics remove and inspect transmission pans for metal shavings or other signs of damage, they select and insert new fluid according to manufacturers’ specifications and cars’ favorite flavors, leaving vehicles road-ready and purring.
