Free from aerodynamics-inhibiting dirt and grime, clean cars can focus on what they were originally built to do—dominate in the 200-meter butterfly. Smooth your vehicle's surface with today's Groupon: for $7, you get an Express Elite treatment car wash at Ankeny Auto Spa (a $13.77 value).
Ankeny Auto Spa’s cleaning technicians rescue paint jobs from the clutches of road grime, scrubbing the nooks and crannies of cars with environmentally safe products. Automotive rescuers begin the Express Elite treatment with a trifoam bath and conditioning service to make colored coats shine. Next, four-wheeled horses get an undercarriage and tire scour. For top-to-bottom hygiene, a soothing wax swirls across hoods, followed by a clear-coat protectant to shield motor buggies from bugs, rocks, or other pernicious vehicle pests. A warm blow-dry removes the majority of water before a detailed towel dry leaves a streak-free sheen bereft of any lingering moisture. Finally, rubber toes receive a coat of rim cleaner, ensuring that their gleam can be seen by impressed airplane passengers. The treatment lasts 7–10 minutes, the average time it takes to smash an apple with a copy of José Canseco’s autobiography.
Although Ankeny Auto Spa sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
