Gentle sprays of soap and water soar at vehicles of all shapes and sizes as the technicians helm a revolving-belt system that carries autos through a cleansing crucible without scrapes or scratches. After customers drive their roadsters through the wash tunnel, they can relax in Planet Auto Wash's lobby, where snacks await and a plate-glass window offers a prime view of each vehicle as it passes through the detailing area, gets an interior vacuuming and wipe down, or tackles the obstacle course.
L.A. Tint's factory-trained technicians curtail heat with scratch-resistant Formula One tint films, which come recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation. Window tints are both practical and stylish, like leopard-print Post-It notes, and keep the interiors safe from high temperatures, UV rays, and blinding glares. Drivers seeking some shade can enlist the aid of two front-window tints ($89), and a full tint job for a two-door car ($169) keeps the sun from sneaking in through a side door or rear entrance. Prices range based on the car's size and ability to sit without blinking, and all tints are backed by a national manufacturer's lifetime warranty.
Serving Northern Virginia since the 1960s, Embassy Autowash carefully cleans each vehicle that cruises through its wash tunnel. During car wash sessions, the brushless system protects automobiles' sensitive surfaces from microscopic scratches while keeping every hair in place.
