The sign in front of Manhasset Hand Wash & Detail Center reads "100% Hand Car Wash," a tip of the cap to the old-fashioned service its technicians provide. From inside a full-service car wash tunnel, they draw on Rain-X products and Rosie the Riveter-levels of elbow grease to administer tiered hand-wash packages each named in tribute to the East Coast, such as the Bay Breeze Wash and Light House Wash. The staff works under the gaze of Elvis Presley and vintage automobiles, thanks to a wall-sized art piece designed like a strip of black-and-white film. As cars receive a hose blast from the past, their owners wait in a modern shop filled with automotive accessories, including a Technicolor forest of air fresheners.
Drawing on half a century of automotive service, Midas helps drivers to prolong vehicle vigor with factory-recommended maintenance services. Mechanics pop car hoods to perform oil changes with standard and temperature-durable synthetic solutions, taking time to inspect belts, hoses, fluids, and the air conditioner's resident penguin. Armed with EPA- and CARB-complying catalytic converters, the staff helps to shrink harmful emissions during muffler and exhaust-system checks. Trained technicians augment brake services with lifetime guarantees and curate healthy, evenly worn tires with rotations or replacements from Goodyear, Michelin, Firestone, and Bridgestone.

Stereo installation and window tinting fall within its vehicular wheelhouse, as well.
