Three flat-screen televisions, a DVD player, and a CD player with AM/FM radio entertain up to 10 passengers in single-window Lincoln Town Car limousine. In addition to these accouterments, the 14-seat Excursion also enthralls riders with an MP3 player, laser and strobe lighting, and a moonroof carved out of authentic lunar rock. Professional, punctual chauffeurs pilot both vehicles from Xquisite Limo’s fleet, which whisks wedding guests, bachelor and bachelorette parties, and prom attendees on leisurely rides throughout Iowa. Meanwhile, Lincoln Town Car sedans, the fleet’s third member, transports customers on business travel and trips to and from Eastern Iowa Airport.
Behind Budget Auto Detail Center's shiny fleet of cars for hire and moving trucks, teams of dedicated detailers clean up customers' precious four-wheeled friends. Rather than outsourcing the cleaning chores to cyborgs, technicians remove offending stains and blemishes by hand, touching up paint chips or working in protective coats of wax to create a handsome sheen. Their power washes, steam cleanings, and interior scrub downs leave cars as grime- and grease-free as a germaphobe's favorite bar of soap.
The employees at Detail Plus are old hands when it comes to restoring cars to the glory of their showroom days. Staff members draw from years of experience as they gently detail the interiors, exteriors, and secret undercarriage glove compartments of roadsters. They hand wash outer frames and snatch any lingering environmental grime with Clay Magic products. Inside, conditioners care for vinyl and leather and steam removes contaminants from carpet. Protective extras include an undercoating that muffles noise and vibrations from the road as it shields wheel wells, gas tanks, and other fixtures from rust and corrosion.

Drivers can peruse magazines while seated on the waiting room’s cozy tan couch, or they can hop aboard a shuttle or into a loaner car to continue the day’s errands.
