It all began with a 1998 BMW 328i. As lifelong car enthusiast Ivan Rajic learned how to care for his prized vehicle, he discovered that proper auto maintenance involves much more than a simple wash and wax. His research and experimentation with detailing products and techniques led him to found LUSTR Auto Detail in 2007. He emphasizes quality over quantity, spending up to a full day perfecting each vehicle from the inside out. Whether he is preparing a Ferrari for an auto show with concours-level services or treating a well-traveled minivan to a basic exterior detail, Rajic approaches each vehicle with care and respect. He employs only pH-balanced shampoos, nonacidic wheel cleaners, and soft-sheepskin wash mitts to leave cars clean enough to host high tea during rush hour.

The professionally trained drivers at A1 American Limousine chauffer passengers in a fleet of fancy carriages, easing airport transit or spicing up special events. Luxury sedans whisk travelers to O'Hare or Midway from downtown ($65 to/from either airport) and suburban destinations, such as Oak Forest ($70 to/from either airport), Park Ridge ($40 to/from O'Hare; $60 to/from Midway), and Deerfield ($45 to/from O'Hare; $70 to/from Midway). To sooth stresses after long flights, clients can opt for shuttle service from either airport to a destination of their choosing. When patrons touchdown, car conductors will be waiting in terminals with signs showcasing the passenger's name and a sketch of what the driver imagines the customer to look like. Once the sign attracts the proper person, the chauffer will carry the client's cargo to the car, and motor off to the specified destination. Even though the prices listed are base prices, customers should call ahead for personalized rates.
