Let me first say I really like my WRX to look clean. I use the California duster on it every night before putting the cover on (I have no garage). Occasionally I'll dust it during the day between jobs if I have time and it's really windy.
The issue for me is that I simply lack the time to properly detail it myself.
I'm assuming that there are plenty of others who run into the same problem. I work on average, 65-70+ hours a week between two jobs. Occasionally Sunday will be the only one I have off. Throw in laundry, shopping for food, etc. There's just no real time for detailing.
Now, I do have time to stop by a car wash. So, I figured this thread can be used to point out good and bad places to get your car washed around the country/world if self-detailing isn't always an option.
I'm in Las Vegas and so far the best place I've seen is Regency Auto Spa, across from UNLV on Maryland Parkway.
It's a hand vacuum, hand wash that really seems to pay attention to detail (most of the time).
Even better, every now and then they'll throw in a wash+wax special. For $30 they'll wash your car, wax it and even shampoo your floormats.
I get very little water spots/drippage out of my seams afterwards and what really caught my eye was that they waxed around and under my side mirrors.
There were a couple spots they didn't get all the wax off. But they were very minor and I got them off with a soft cloth myself later on. It seems they use a very soft wax and it wasn't difficult to fine-tune the detailing later that night.
Anyways, they're the best place I've found in Las Vegas so far. Any others?
