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 $50, you get an express auto-detailing package at Lakeside Auto and Marine Detailing (a $100 value).
The team of licensed and insured technicians at Lakeside Auto and Marine Detailing facilitate glossy, hand-waxed car frames and sparkling interiors. During the one- to two-hour express package, the deft detailers sniff out crumbs and reformed antimatter with a vacuum in preparation for a sanitizing surface wipe-down and crystallizing window cleaning. Meanwhile, technicians on the outside of the car dexterously hand-scrub dirt, tar, and road film off the frame, and gently buff the car's finish to a gleaming dry with chamois. Next, they gild the frame with a hand-application of detail wax, which heightens the paint's reflective lustre while protecting the shine from being dulled by dust, dirt, or rain's incessant water-cycle jokes. Concluding the service, detailers spruce up the exterior windows and groom all four puddle-plowers with tire dressing.
