Driving a shiny car is a great way to experience luxurious transportation without the hassle of chartering a yacht or riding a peacock to work. Transform regular vehicles into ritzy rides with today's Groupon: for $22, you get three gold car washes at Hippo Car Wash in Coeur d'Alene (a $45 value).
Hippo Car Wash's 90-second Gold wash eliminates dirt and shines up automobile exteriors. As soaps comb the vehicle's shell, side sprays blast the wheels, and geysers rise from below to scour the underbelly and unhinge manhole covers. Next, a seal-coat protectant and triple-coat wax wraps the newly minted shine in a protective embrace, and a shining solution glosses up tires.
A teflon protectant secures the radiant finish of the factory paint, and a power-dry wicks away residual moisture. On completion, customers can swipe surfaces with a damp cleaning towel and ferret out dirt, sand, or moon dust with free vacuums. Before pulling away, drivers receive a complimentary air freshener and a punch card for redeeming their remaining washes.
