Brea Car Wash and Detail Center glams up autos from tire to antennae tip—the only choice owners need to make is how to get it done. For everyday grime, the car wash will suffice—cars are lathered in water, soap, and waxes that give the car a bumper-to-bumper shine. The detailing center takes care of more advanced forms of filth; auto-artisans buff the finish and apply Meguiar’s waxes before foam cleaning the interior and degreasing the vinyl, leather, and dashboard pancake griddle. Taking pains to keep the mechanics as smooth as the cosmetics, Brea Car Wash also offers oil changes complete with inspections and fluid refills.
