Robots are good for many things, including freaking out dogs and launching war on mankind, but they lack the gentleness of a human touch. Avoid automated auto roughness with today’s Groupon at Tempus Auto Spa. Choose between the following options:

  • For $42, you get a hand wash and wax (a $64.99 value for cars, a $79.99 value for SUVs, an $84.99 value for large SUVs).
  • For $42, you get an express mini detail (a $99.99 value for cars and SUVs).

Using fresh, soft terry cloths and mitts, Tempus Auto Spa's skilled shine gurus wash each wheelmobile with careful, gentle touches. They start the process by examining every inch of your vehicle's hull for filthy smudges and road backwash. Tires will be dressed to eliminate any drag-creating buildup that might slow down your land-train and inhibit it from making jumps through time, and pressurized air blowers ensure no soapy streaks dull the paint's glow. Then, a premium-quality-wax application fortifies the hides of rides against Mother Nature’s car-hating elemental fingers.

Any automobile in need of a spa-like session can opt for the express mini detail, bolstering the hand wash with a spray wax and dust-busting of the interior. Mats are shampooed, and a leather and vinyl shine ensures any mix CDs resting on the passenger seat stay polished and scratch-free.

While you await your vehicular makeover, lounge on a comfy couch in Tempus Auto Spa's chic waiting room. Opt to admire the condo-like decor or to sip hot coffee while cruising high-speed Internet for videos of mini Al Gore dancing in Al Gore's palm.

Tempus Auto Spa

Most car-wash lounges don't give customers a hotel-lobby vibe. However, the one at Tempus Auto Spa gets pretty close, surrounding guests with marble countertops, exposed-brick walls, and large windows that cast sunlight onto posh furniture. As they wait here for their vehicle, visitors can sip gourmet coffee or browse the Internet at computer stations. The designer bathrooms' warm colors add to the ambiance—even they are part of the venue's mission to pamper cars and people simultaneously.

CS magazine_ highlighted Tempus Auto Spa as one business that "make[s] daily duties super swanky." As its waiting area charms clients with all that's chic, so its services indulge vehicles with careful cleaning and detailing. The technicians rely on their own meticulousness instead of traditional car-wash machinery and giant car dunk tanks, even refusing to use mitts and towels for more than a single hand wash. The same manual attention goes into their most comprehensive treatments—the Spankin New Look complete exterior and interior detail, for example, includes an engine cleaning, which technicians can do with steam or by hand.

I was a little skeptical at first because they kept reminding each other in the shop that "I had a groupon" and I wasn't sure what that really meant. So I was hoping for a good experience and at the end it went pretty good. So, I will recommend it.
