Cleaning the car is a tedious chore that—much like seeing the love of your life devour an entire wedding cake—can actually dampen your ardor for it. Keep human-car relations strong with today's Groupon: for $85, you get a full-service detail for a compact, midsize, or full-size car at Serio's Custom Detailing (up to a $225 value).
At Serio's Custom Detailing, a staff of speck-hunting specialists waits to restore buggy buddies back to their cleaner, shinier, more idealistic selves. The all-inclusive detailing service, known as the Full Auto Transformation, pampers painted surfaces with a hand wash, a chamois dry, and bug and tar removal. Technicians also break out a clay bar to pluck tiny contaminants from the car's surface and slop on two coats of a polymer sealant wax that grants long-lasting gleam. To cancel out window filth, the staff polishes windows inside and out, then rids doorjambs of grime and leftover toast crumbs before heading inside with vacuums and hot-water extractions to deep-cleanse carpets. A conditioner and a UV protectant team up to lustrate leathery surfaces, and any trunk gunk gets forcefully ejected before the detailing session comes to an end. Though each Full Auto Transformation takes a minimum of four hours to complete, service times vary depending on cars' original dirtiness.
