Whether by suds, professional polish, leather conditioners, or tinted window film, the technicians at Miami Auto Spa keep cars looking sharp enough to make a stop sign blush. All washes are performed by hand. Details, with the help of Wolfgang sealants, Klasse polishes, and shampoos, reach every crevice of the car and transform it into a shiny, new-looking ride. Cars don’t need to be dirty to benefit here, though. Window tinting gives the car a sleek look and the driver protection and privacy, and rim repairs further add to the car’s overall aesthetic.
Everything is done by hand at Miami Car Spa, where cars roll into individual stalls for sudsy hand washes, waxes, and interior cleanups. Patrons can choose from four wash styles, each named for a southern Florida hot spot, such as the quick and simple Miami style, which starts with a wash and ends with a spritz of air freshener. At the top of the list is the South Beach style, during which the crew treats paint to a clear-coat protectant before guiding rides to a shaded tent for a full interior cleanup, including shampoo, conditioner, and french braids for the seat belts.
Yellow and blue signage near the parking lots of shopping malls, offices, and entertainment centers indicates the presence of ProntoWash, a car wash and detailing powerhouse that boasts more than 350 operations worldwide. Its business model revolves around accessibility—ProntoWash sets up shop where cars already are, saving drivers time and preserving all the gas and corn dogs that engines would have otherwise consumed during a trip to a traditional car wash. Helming special yellow Washing Karts, the company's technicians use biodegradable detergent and about a pint of low-pressure water to render each car clean. They also care for cars by vacuuming carpets, restoring headlights, stuffing multivitamins inside ailing glove compartments, and making arrangements to hit the road with their mobile car-wash service.
The automotive aestheticians at TintWorld beautify rides with a variety of detailing, window-film, and modification services. Window-tint treatments offer privacy and sun protection, and are available in custom designs such as flames and skulls. Installation services include electronics, alarms, audio and video systems, and spring-loaded ejector seats. The outlet also supplies do-it-yourself detailers with car-care and performance products.
Now in operation for more than 40 years, Sudsy Car Wash & Detailing Center envelops each visiting vehicle in a shower of soapy bubbles. Foam ferries across windows while a polymer-sealant rinse provides protection against the elements. The detail center uses only Meguiar’s quality products to primp paint or fortify the soft folds of leather interiors. Technicians can pore over the whole vehicle with packages or attack auto’s piece by piece, deep cleaning just the vehicle’s seats, carpets, or rims.
Seven days a week, the trained technicians at Ultimate Car Wash & Detail Center usher dirty automobiles through a drive-through wash before manually vacuuming and wiping down their interiors. In addition to these general cleaning treatments, they perform detailing services such as headlight restoration and flux-capacitor calibration.
At El Car Wash's two brushless locations, you can drive your car into a series of sprayers and dryers to get it clean from bumper-to-bumper. At the end, clients can use the free vacuums onsite to get rid of dirt and debris on the inside. Staff members are on hand to assist drivers when ordering their service, and for the premium service, they hand-dry cars so clients don't have to park in front of 20 box fans.
