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 $75, you get a full exterior detail and light interior touch-up for cars and SUVs at Auto Spa (up to a $235 value).
The staff at Auto Spa extends a welcoming rag to cars and SUVs with fading finishes, bringing their drab exteriors back to full shine with a six-step clay, buff, and polish process. After drivers drop off their cars, technicians start with a hand wash, meticulously plucking dirt from the frame, chiseling chunks of road from the tires, and flushing out the wheel wells. Nimble-handed detailers then carefully rub detailing clay on the surface, extracting deeply embedded dirt particles and protecting the integrity of the paint, and perform a post-clay buffing to remove minor scratches and refine the car's complexion. Original paint colors emerge after polish coats the car, and wax sealants step in to guard the revamped finish against tar, dirt, and nauseated cement trucks. Following the exterior sprucing, Auto Spa's technicians climb inside to vacuum surfaces and saturate dirty carpets with purifying shampoos.
Though Auto Spa sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
The detailers at Auto Spa execute four treatments designed to restore cars, trucks, and SUVs to their glory days of flaunting shiny, flawless coats on the showroom floor. The team breaks out the sponges and soft cloths to hand wash exteriors—including wheels and tires—and adds meticulous touches such as clay-bar treatments and sealants to protect paint jobs and seal in gloss. They also tackle interior grime, refreshing carpets and mats with vacuuming and shampooing, conditioning leather and vinyl, and excavating fossilized french fries under seats.
