Advanced Auto Spa's staff prepares vehicles for winter's visitation with the interior and exterior cleanings of the super wash. At the spa, which saw The Situation's Bentley to cleanliness, buggies ride through the tunnel's automated sprays to clear their outer parts and underbodies of grime and erase dissertations scrawled on dirty windows. A coat of Armor All cleans and protects wheels and tires, and a layer of wax seals in shininess. To keep interiors sparkling, the cleaners vacuum up detritus and wipe down dusty dashboards, then give rides a quick towel drying and send them back out to cruise the world's highways.
