Precise Auto Service’s owner and president, Philip Pierce, started his automotive career as an oil and lube technician and has worked in the industry for more than 30 years. Recognizing a need for reliable automotive service in Kensington, the Northern Virginia native decided to relocate to Maryland. Since then, Precise Auto Service has tended to brakes, changed oil, performed inspections, treated transmissions, and been awarded the Angie’s List Super Service Award. The shop welcomes both domestic and foreign vehicles and is open until 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and until 2 p.m. on Saturday. They also provide a pick-up and drop-off service and free estimates before clients decide whether to pay with cash, credit, or Monopoly money.
For more than 10 years, the crew members at West Springs Details have moved with the efficiency and dexterity of a stock-car-racing pit-crew to give cars makeovers that restore them to their natural beauty. Car, truck, and SUV exteriors enjoy spa-like treatments including hand washing and drying, waxing and polishing, and window and wheel-well cleaning. The skilled technicians vacuum interiors and shampoo and deodorize carpets and seats. For leather seats, they’ll render a deep-conditioning treatment. With these types of treatments and skills, the team can remedy any suffering your vehicle’s exterior has undergone from salty winter streets or your interior has undergone from pungent sports equipment that was sprayed with cologne one too many times.
The trained technicians at B&B Customs customize vehicles with a slew of gadgets, such as remote-start and security systems from Code Alarm. They give drivers fobs that have the power to start engines from afar and unlock doors without a key or secret password, and they boost in-car entertainment with audio and video systems, such as MP3-accessible CD receivers or custom subwoofers. In 2004, the company added a scooter shop and loaded it with a stockpile of scooters and ATVs for renting, buying, or using to patch a scooter-shaped hole in your wall.
