Though it originally sold only two things—audio products and wireless phones—Car Toys has gradually expanded its repertoire. Today, with 50 locations spread across four states, electronics-certified technicians install everything from Alpine in-dash navigation units to phone-integration systems that sync iPhones, Androids, and tin cans to car stereos. Meanwhile, in the garage, detailing technicians meticulously spruce up cars inside and out, using deionized water, paint-friendly shampoos, and high-quality wash mitts to protect against scratches, swirls, and water spots. The team also sweeps through interiors with vacuums, hot-water extractors, and ozone deodorizing treatment, which kills airborne bacteria and nasty smells in one fell swoop.
The certified technicians at Lynx Customs know that, with a few simple upgrades, an old car can become something new again. That’s why they retrofit rides with quality equipment and services, most of which arrive with lifetime and extended warranties at no additional fee. They protect auto interiors and passengers with sun-blocking 3M window tints and guard exteriors from road debris with clear-bra film. Simple transportation pods become entertainment machines after techs install mobile video systems and wholesale car audio products such as head units, amplifiers, subwoofers, speakers, and gramophone horns. They extend entertainment installations to sea vessels and further protect rides and pedestrians with alarms and backup cameras.
As part of the international WaterSavers program, the green-minded team behind Car Wash Express urges drivers to eschew the potentially harmful environmental effects of at-home car washes in favor of quick, thorough cleanses. 100% of the water used on your wash will be recycled and 80% of that will go toward the next wash. Across Car Wash Express’s five Denver-area locations, an automated tunnel attacks exterior buildup with biodegradable cleaning products and shine-enhancing protectants. The wash’s express lanes expedite the scrubbing process and cater to drivers in a hurry, and its fleet/bulk sales program meets the high-volume demands of people who own multiple cars or frequently race roadsters through the local pit.

The licensed and insured technicians at Tint Crafters of Centennial Inc. deftly apply 3M clear bra treatments to protect cars’ pristine painted surfaces. The durable clear coating repels debris, keeping stone chips, gravel, or pithy bumper-sticker slogans from scratching the finish. Clear bra treatments on the hood and fender vary by size ($199+ for 12 inches), and techs can affix the damage-defying treatment to headlights ($50/lens), fog lights ($20/lens), and side mirrors ($20 each) as well. This Groupon is valid for a 12-inch treatment, measured from the lowest point on your car's hood. 3M has a five-year warranty on all materials, and all services from Tint Crafters are backed by a lifetime warranty.
