Inside Pleasant Details’ 12,000 ft. service center, technicians set to work wrapping automotive parts in protective films and detailing rides big and small—from airplanes to motorcycles—with Meguiar’s products. The shop’s specialties include installing computer-cut window tints to ward off heat, safeguarding paint with 3M films, and fitting auto bodies with vinyl racing stripes and banners so drivers can advertise a local business or creatively ask that crossing guard on a date. Throughout each service, the detailing crew pulls from high quality product lines including LLumar, 3M, and XPel.
Speedee Oil Change first opened its doors more than 30 years ago, right around the time when corner gas stations began trading their garage bays for the wide aisles and refrigerators of a mini mart. With automotive service stations in decline, the first location in Metairie, Louisiana, stepped in to take care of car owners with simple lube jobs and general tune-ups. Speedee expanded to offer a full range of services including working on brakes, power steering, and transmissions, among other things. Locally owned franchises now service roadsters in 20 states, supplying drivers with ASE–certified technicians who pamper vehicles with 17-point oil changes and immunizations against rusty nails.
At Enigma Custom, technicians don't just focus on tweaking a car's appearance?they also change how it operates.

The technicians at MasterCare Automotive have everything a busted car needs, from wrenches to the latest diagnostic technology. In addition to preventative maintenance services—such as oil changes, air-filter inspections, and tune-ups—they nurse ailing transmissions, brakes, and water pumps back to health. They back their services with 12-month or 12,000-mile warranties, which they ratify by burning a tower of tires.
The technicians at B&C Auto Glass keep glass damage on vehicles from turning into larger safety issues through services such as sealing cracks and replacing windshields. To repair small cracks in the windshield, the team injects acrylic into the fissure to help improve visibility and prevent further deterioration, and can perform full windshield replacements on the same day. The team also has a mobile unit to travel to clients and perform their auto glass services, perfect for when clients can't get away from their home or when a windshield tries to run away with a rearview mirror.
