After emigrating from east Africa in 1974, Bashir Hirjee started detailing cars in a small bay in his father's Texaco station. Today, Bashir's detailing center, Bashir’s Auto Cosmetics, could swallow several such bays, as the sprawling facility covers 16,000 square feet and services up to 150 cars per week. Inside the center, autos enter a 110-foot tunnel for a thorough lambscloth car wash before a slew of protectants enhance paint and inhibit rust. Customers can take refuge in Bashir's 800-square-foot lobby while they wait, running fingers along the handmade mahogany furniture or easing into a leather sofa to enjoy the view of a flat-screen TV. A 150-foot red carpet also runs adjacent to the auto wash tunnel, letting drivers keep watch over their sudsy vehicle like a school chaperone on a class trip to the water park.

Originally a mobile detail service, The Detail Shop expanded into a brick-and-mortar business and augmented its growing detail service with auto-glass installations.

Additionally, certified industry professionals replace windshields damaged by flying debris or bit by feral hood ornaments. While cars revel in the attention, a lobby with free coffee, WiFi, and TV entertainment gives motorists a break from the drivers seat, and an in-house showroom doles out detailing products, car accessories, and audio equipment.

Neighbors and co-workers will whistle at your roadcraft's shiny new exterior while mechanics and sewer dwellers gape at its immaculate undercarriage.
