If your shady parking spot rests beneath bird-filled trees, or someone scrawled carpetbagger into the layer of grime on your car window, today's Groupon can give your vehicle its original off-the-lot shine. For $18, you'll get Auto Spa Hand Car Wash's Wax Works Way package, including a complete hand wash, wax, and interior clean, a $38 value. Baltimore Magazine's Best Car Wash of Charm City, Auto Spa is located a cool 15 miles outside the city in Cockeysville, making the return trip in your newly perfected vehicle a ride you'll wish would never end. This Groupon isn't just great for sprucing up your own car: it also makes the perfect passive-aggressive gift for your dirty carpool driver.
The Auto Spa lavishes ordinary rides with the careful attention normally reserved for celebrity coupes and supermodel Ts. Your Ultimate Works Wash begins with a thorough, environmentally friendly wash, applied with soft cloths to prevent scratches, while an underbody flush rinses dirt and debris from your car’s sensitive underbelly. Wheels will be left looking shiny and new after a wheel blaster service and tire dressing, while a triple foam polish, spot-free rinse, and towel drying rid besmirched auto bodies of dirt and water spots, and also protect against unjust road-pirate mutiny. After locking in your car’s newfound radiance with a protective layer of sealer wax, the careful technician will then move inside, wiping down the dashboard, door jambs, and glass, before vacuuming all floor carpets, floor mats, and upholstery to rid them of dirt, dust, and hibernating marmots.
Next Level Handwash Carwash spruces up metal chariots with five different levels of washing that remove dirt and oil by hand and shine car coats so that their hides resemble that of a seal catching waves atop a newly waxed surfboard. During services, patrons relax inside one of two lounges, staring up at plasma TV screens instead of down at their watches. Car-wash customers can also request mobile service, which dispatches Next Level car cleaners to home driveways so washes can be witnessed through the venetian blinds in your living room. Next Level also offers paintless dent-removal services and auto detailing, in addition to pickup and drop-off services.
Seven cosmetic car-care packages attract soiled vehicles to Performance Window Tinting & Auto Detailing's shop, where dedicated motor maids vacuum, hand-wash, wax, and buff them until they're clean and idling happily. Thanks to the garage's tinting services, drivers can hide their autos' insides from prying eyes once technicians equip windows with SunTek or Hüper Optik films. The vehicle doctors also perform a number of auto-body repairs, patching up hail damage, fixing windshield chips, and nursing black headlights received in fights with bullying mail trucks.
Excessive Detail's car caretakers polish roadsters of all shapes and sizes. When they aren't scouring cars, motorcycles, RVs, and boats, they're repairing windshields, removing dents, and shielding paint jobs with protective films. They also ready vehicle peepers for safer nighttime jaunts by installing HID headlights or purging old lamps of haze for clearer beams, reducing the risk of collisions with families of yield signs trying to cross the street.
