Autoscope Foreign Car Care's factory-certified technicians detail and service nearly all European makes and models, including Audi, Mercedes, and Jaguar. At the two Dallas locations and the one in Plano, they execute plans to fix everything from cooling systems and brakes to engines that foolishly thought they could, stamping each car's maintenance book to keep the original manufacturer's warranty valid. They also hand wash and vacuum every car that comes in for a service. However, the shop's team can perform a more thorough cleaning with detailing services, scrubbing frown lines from bumpers, peeling off contaminants such as tree sap and bugs, waxing, and completely cleansing cars inside and out.
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.
If it rolls, there's a good chance the technicians at DFW Camper Corral can improve upon it. Their stock of camper shells and tonneau covers from A.R.E., SnugLid, and BakFlip fit diverse models with flat makes or styles with aerodynamic curves, ideal for when trucks need to visit their second cousins, airplanes. After protecting upholstery with Llumar window tints or outfitting rides with car and truck accessories, the techs can even safeguard their handiwork with alarm systems and other high-tech gadgets.
Millenium Custom Car Audio's technicians turn automobiles into drivable works of art. They can coat windows in tinted film that blocks UV rays, line trunks with glowing green sound systems, and install Viper and Prestige security systems that protect cars by sounding alarms or spraying potential thieves with engine oil. They also transform car and SUV cabins into mobile theaters, with fold-down video screens to entertain passengers on long car trips and powerful stereos to turn parking lots into impromptu dance floors.
For more than 25 years, the authorized 3M window-tinting experts at Moonshadow Window Tinting have masked cars in decorative and protective window tints that tote the Skin Cancer Foundation's seal of recommendation. They wrap windows in 3M FX HP hybrid films, engineered to maintain visibility while still rejecting up to 55% of incoming heat and up to half of light. Interiors can be outfitted with NOC Vinyl covers, which protects dashboards while maintaining the aesthetic integrity of interior wood-grain or carbon-fiber designs. Additionally, car bodies can be wrapped in NanoShield protective covers, which block debris, gravel, and other dangers from the car?s body to prevent damage to its paint or self-esteem.
Dallas Pro Audio & Tint specializes in mobile electronics and security. On the electronics side, they boast the products and the staff to bring cars into the 21st century. This includes sound, video, and accessories from leading brands and technicians with the knowhow to seamlessly integrate the new technology.

Then there's the security side of things, which helps protect newly installed electronics. Technicians outfit rides with alarm systems, remote starters, breathalyzers, and window tints. They offer window tints from brands such as 3M, which add a sleek look to the car and keep its insides safe from the sun, the heat, and the envious gaze of horse-buggy drivers.
