A well-maintained car lends its driver the kind of sophistication that's usually reserved for people drinking martinis garnished with monocles. Tend to blasé transporters with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get the luxury mini detail package (a $100 value) from Shea’s Luxury Detail in Aiea.
Earning an arsenal of awards for top-notch service, Shea Mirafuentes coddles collectable and workaday cars, choppers, and street bikes with an engineer's precision and an artist's eye. Using premium products, the meticulous roadster-revitalizer turns bedraggled buggies into model road-citizens, starting with a tire, rim, and wheel well deep cleaning. The luxury hand wash gently shampoos auto husks, removing unsightly road grime and incriminating road signs. Sedans get a dust and debris detox as auto-internists vacuum interiors and trunks, and rub down dashboards, consoles, air vents, and cup holders with microfiber towels. Finally, attentive technicians restore a resplendent luster to paintjobs with natural carnauba waxes, leaving hatchbacks confident enough to flirt with sporty coupes at traffic lights.
This Groupon covers a three-hour scour and gleam, but additional charges may apply for larger roadsters—such as SUV crossovers, trucks, and vans ($30)—or those coated in mud and covered in Cerberean hound hair.
Four Yelpers give Shea’s Luxury Detail a perfect five-star average:
