Performance Detailing's experienced technicians buff, wax, and polish cars to a professional shine. Their nigh-invisible, clear-bra protectors ward off scratches and rock chips, and their two-coat wax jobs protect painted surfaces for up to four months with layers of polish and carnauba wax. The techs promote comfort and safety by deflecting 99% of harmful UV rays with ceramic and nonceramic tint, or boost nighttime visibility with headlight restorations. Though the automotive artisans routinely buff, polish, and steam-clean car outsides and cabins, they also undo damage from hailstones or wayward shopping-cart stampedes with paintless dent removal.
Tidal Wave Hand Car Wash's talented staff stabilizes chipped windows and swaps too-far-gone windshields for clear replacements. During the chip-repair service, technicians stymie small glass divots before they can grow into large, dangerous cracks that spell out cursive obscenities. One or two chip repairs seal over rock and debris damage before the entire window becomes impaired, leaving glass clear and driver visibility restored and safe. Skilled staffers replace windshields that have been damaged beyond repair can be removed and replaced with high-quality glass that allows commuters a clear view of the road and the thumb of a hitchhiking diplomat ($225+).
Drive & Shine's lengthy wash tunnel scrubs muck and mire from auto frames with eco-friendly soaps and nimble-fingered soft foam wraps. During the 10- to 15-minute service, an underbody wash cleanses the car's road-facing parts, and autos beam like a smiling hologram after being lovingly smothered in applications of clear-coat sealant and foam polish. A layer of Diamond Wax projects the radiant luster of the finish far into the future, and Wheel Brite and tire dressing keep the vehicle's rubber boots looking spick-and-span. To keep the interior looking sharp, technicians climb inside to vacuum dirt, debris, and crumbs from the rugs and seats, beat particles out of mats, scrub windows, and wipe dashes and door jambs with soapy foam wraps. Ten percent of Drive & Shine's proceeds will be donated to United Way, an organization that promotes healthy living and helps humans reach their full potential.
Technicians at the 6,000-square-foot West Loop Auto Spa hand wash cars from bumper to bumper with professional-grade products. During full-service washes, the technicians go the extra mile to clean glass, vacuum interiors, and wipe down the dash and rims, while customers test-drive the shop's complimentary WiFi. With their detailing services, they shampoo all mats and carpets, clean leather, and finish crossword puzzles tucked under the seats. In addition to washing and detailing, they also offer dent-removal services and window tinting.
Professional detailers at Ritz Hand Car Wash & Detail Center rejuvenate autos inside and out with a range of cleansing services.

The temperature-controlled, pet-friendly facility stays open seven days a week while autos roll ever closer to nirvana.
The professionals at Bucktown Hand Car Wash & Detailing groom vehicles inside and out during cleaning and detailing services that leave rides glistening. Technicians squirt sponges with Meguiar's Soap and scrub the body from bow to stern by hand; this allows them to deliver a car wash that's more thorough and gentle than sending cars through a machine wash or parking them atop a geyser. Cars pull out of Bucktown Hand Car Wash & Detailing with heightened night vision after having their headlights cleaned, or the ability to make riders feel like they're driving in an eclipse following a window tinting.
