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.
Since its inception more than 30 years ago, Just Brakes has expanded from one auto shop to more than 160 outposts across eight states. At every location, ASE-certified technicians maintain vehicle safety with professional brake services including a lifetime warranty on parts, labor and platonic love. Though their specialty is brakes, the techs also perform routine maintenance and repairs such as oil changes, suspension repair, and belt replacement.

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.
A relaxing trip to Colorado's high country is disarmingly full of nature's beauty. The scene is replete with birdsong cascading from the skies, trees rustling gently in the breeze, and the roar of a V10 engine and its 500 horsepower screaming from a pearl yellow Lamborghini Gallardo as it rips shreds through time and space.
That's a scene most familiar to Exotic Drives of Denver, which sends its customers swooping and soaring around curves behind the wheels of exotic cars. Along with the pearl-yellow Lamborghini, the company's fleet walks tall with a Ferrari and three Porsches whose motors purr in harmony to classic barbershop quartet songs after the last mechanic leaves for the night. Four routes—ranging from 11 miles to nearly 50 miles—give drivers plenty of opportunity to zip around different neighborhoods, including Denver's southeast metro area and the rural roads of Douglas County.
