The wayfaring detailers at Shine Bright Mobile Auto Detail & Wash cart their own soft-water supply to every job they're called upon. That way, they help drivers avoid the dreaded spotting associated with standard car washes or driving behind a leaky milk truck. Shine Bright knows that interiors are just as important as the exteriors, which is why they also offer interior shampooing, pet-hair and gum removal, and leather conditioning.
Each member of the team refreshes automobiles inside and out, whether by steady hand or thorough machine. Cars can also enjoy hand wax alongside thorough interior or exterior detail packages. While cars are getting pampered, customers can wait in a comfortable room that features padded chairs and photographs of historic tic-tac-toe matches.
A sleek white Ferrari purrs in the parking lot, and suddenly the opaque window rolls down to reveal Kim Kardashian behind the wheel, beaming with joy at her new custom-tinted windows. Fresh Window Tint’s owner Junior Ayala smiles, knowing he has satisfied yet another customer.

Using only premium products with at least a 20-year history, which includes Llumar protective window tint, insured technicians wrap windowpanes to reduce heat, solar glare, and up to 99.9% of UV rays. They also protect cars’ bodies with vinyl vehicle wrap or enhance headlights with 3M products. Like wallpaper made from dictionary pages, tinted windows are also stylish and practical for residences and businesses, allowing owners to save up to 40% on energy costs. Customers who live in the Santa Clarita/Valencia area may take advantage of Fresh Window Tint's pickup and drop-off service. Customers visiting from farther-flung locations can relax on the lounge’s plush leather sofas, enjoy snacks and beverages, and watch TV while their cars are being armored against heat and the blinding glare reflected off glass-bottom airplanes.
At Fashion Square Car Wash, winner of the Los Angeles Daily News Best Car Wash from 2010-2013, staff members dedicate themselves to more than just beautifying vehicles inside and out. With every wash, they make a small donation to the customer?s choice of charity, such as The American Cancer Society or City of Hope. As customers avoid the heat in the wash?s shaded waiting area or liquid-nitrogen-chilled gift shop, the technicians set about scrubbing exteriors until they gleam and vacuuming interiors until they?re spotless. Premium washes also include such first-class extras as Blue Coral polishes, Rain-X window treatments, and Black Magic tire dressings. Oil changes incorporate a 22-point inspection.
The technicians at Go Green Auto Spa cleanse sullied chariots and conserve H2O by using less than a quarter-gallon of water on each vehicle they service. With help from an eccentric car-wash inventor, Go Green developed rechargeable machines that add eco-friendly soaps and waxes to water and reduce excessive runoff. The auto spa’s four detail packages all couple hand washes with an interior vacuum, and augment services with an array of add-ons including upholstery shampoos and hand-rubbed wax that defends against weather and delusional cattle branders.
Using Autologic computer diagnostics, Sherman Oaks Exclusive’s factory-trained technicians can spot any number of automotive issues—whether an engine needs to be replaced or just requires a quick oil change. In addition to improving performance, the staff can spruce up a car’s cosmetic side with upholstery replacements, car wraps, flashy new tires and wheels, or racing stripes made of lipstick. Sherman Oaks Exclusive also showcases rows upon rows of domestic and imported rides that feature low mileage and glossy finishes.
