What You'll Get
We normally feature Groupons that give you the royal treatment: exotic facials, indulgent massages, frilly manicures, reconstructive surgical procedures, etc. Today's deal spins the wheel and offers a top-notch pampering—not for you, but for your car. This offer gets you an impeccably detailed cleansing for your vehicle, inside and out. What's more, Mr. Detail Auto Salon's car-grooming experts provide the ultimate convenience: they come to you at your home, office, or favorite park bench anywhere in the greater Seattle area.
This Groupon entitles you to a huge discount on the Starter Package interior and exterior cleaning by the wizards at Mr. Detail Auto Salon. These specialists give cars such a thorough scouring that customers say they hardly recognize their newly pristine rides when they first get in. A Mr. Detail cleansing is the ultimate pick-me-up after the beating every car endures from hostile teenagers with bats and stale loaves of French bread. A semi-annual 75-cent gas-station vacuum job, while succeeding in removing a half-eaten Almond Joy, fails to clean the nooks and crannies that collect gunk and grime over time. And gas-station car washes last as long as it takes the water to dry into translucent grime halos. Mr. Detail's service, on the other hand, will leave your car shiny enough to clean your teeth in its reflection, and with more olfactory élan than a flower shop.
Note: This Groupon applies to standard passenger cars only. Use it to clean your minivan or SUV and Mr. Detail will charge you an extra $10–$20 at the time of service.
Yelpers wax poetic about Mr. Detail Auto Salon with a perfect five stars:

- ...Mike and Tom spent FIVE HOURS cleaning my car from top to bottom, inside and out. That kind of dedication and hard work is just what I was looking for, and is what detailing should be about. – Karyn K.

Rebel with a Car
The year was 1961 and Ace "Johnny" Brandish was 16 and wild. He pulled a comb through his slick, blond hair, swirling it up like a peak of meringue. There were only two things he loved in this world: being a rebel, and his 1957 Mustard Shang Automododge with rapid-fire steering, hamlocked brake chargers, custom chrome pinions, aerodyne sport caps, and an AFM radio with all the top hits. He popped his chewing gum, and also chewed a toothpick, while he rolled a cigarette. He threw it away (tough guys don't smoke).
Just then, Blondie Mondell came out of the bowling alley with a cotton-candy-colored sweater and an armload full of schoolbooks, running late for singing practice. She gave him a once over, like the trouble he was. "Want a ride?" he asked, already knowing the answer. Singing practice could wait.

About Mr. Detail Auto Salon
Trusting an auto detailer with your car may be a decision that requires a little research, but what about when Air Force One needs a cleaning? Mike Rafael and Tom Shearer, owners of Mr. Detail Auto Salon, joined a handpicked team of auto professionals chosen to detail the first presidential jet plane, now installed at Seattle’s Museum of Flight.
When they’re not scouring a piece of American history, they work out of the shop they started together, a joint venture based on their mutual love of cars. Their services range from simple hand washes, wheel polishes, and scuff removal to more involved processes such as paint-less dent removal and fuzzy-dice randomization. Mike and Tom lead a team as they work on cars both in the shop and out of their mobile unit, which is equipped with water and electricity so vehicles can be taken care of anywhere.
