At Richie's Express Carwash, cars roll through an automated tunnel where a cutting-edge computer system hones in on each vehicle's dirtiest spots. Soapy soft cloths clean vehicles and then a special eight solutions cleans exteriors, before suds are blasted away with high-pressure clean water. At the end of each session?which takes about four minutes?cars travel through a drying tunnel whimsically decorated with stuffed animals. There, a system of 15 high-velocity fans brings exteriors to a spot-free shine. Drivers can blow raspberries at their newly cleaned rides from the viewing station before sprucing up interiors at complimentary self-serve vacuum stations.

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.
