The steam is really cool to see them do, with no soap and it comes out really clean. I heard the machines are super expensive and they use less than a galloon of water per car.

-2 side notes, the exterior wash is not 15 anymore its 20 now. and we weren't to impressed with the $30 in/out package. The door panels didn't really even look like they cleaned them. not to knock on them cause the exterior was flawless.
really bro? half ass interior? why does it gotta be that way? you also recommended this to a friend to and all you said was that the door panels were not cleaned. If you call door panels not being completely cleaned a half ass interior job, then i really dont know what else to tell you.

lets keep this simple since your the first dis-sastisfied customer.

1) go somewhere else
2) tell the owner.

Haha cool yourself bro. I'm not even hating on Eric's place cause like I said, I recommended it before. I'm only making a comment on the previous posters statement that 30 for in and out was cheap.

And on the "half ass job". Sorry man but if you tell me your package is $30 and your going to wipe down and vacuum interior, then I actually expect you to wipe it down. Mine wasn't. Just telling the truth man
I understand where your coming from. But in my opinion the comment "half assed" was a pretty strong one.

To each their own on their expectations of service.

Maybe...put it this way. if you pay for cable tv service and they don't give you all the channels your paying for, would you care? I don't see how its any different. Maybe I just expect someone to complete the service I'm paying them for, and you don't.

Sorry to bring your thread off track. Eric's a cool guy and ill definitely bring cars back to them. Id most likely skip the interior clean though, thats for everyone else to make their own decision. I was merely just putting the info out there. Thats what this thread is for isn't it?
Yes. Apologies. a little spaz moment...

If you are concerned, best thing to do is call Eric and he will explain the cleaning process to you. I am not a detailing expert but for the past 15 years of getting car washes I can say that this is the best of its kind I've been to and has the customer service to go with it.
As a former professional detailer, why do you wax your car once a month? Is it an outdoor car? Even though they are some really good products out there that would hold up well, and you could then stick to a high quality spray wax that that you could use to "freshen up" the car after each wash.

Sorry for going OT....

Get a hand wax once a month. Why? Provsbly obsessive. . Like keeping the coat fresh.

Yes an outside car and driven daily.

Get a compound 2 times a year.

No worries going off topic.

Pics will be back up tonight. Removed because i will need to remove plate #'s from the pics.

What do you get out of promoting this and staying on top of this thread? Free washes? Money? Just curious.

Lol. Nothing at all but an occasional free wash. Eric is one of my best friends from high school so im just trying to get him exposure and I want to see him do well. He has put his blood sweat and tears into his business and he loves what he does.

I finally got my car so I can maybe come down Saturday. What time were you thinking of going? I think there's also a station that sells e85 near so i may have to go try out the new JB4 e85 map

You will literally drive by it and can pretty much see it from Birdie's. I've been filling up E85 there and my only complaint is the hours (closed by 7 PM)

That's great, hopefully i'll be able to go this weekend. Do you notice a difference in map 5 between that and regular 93 octane?

It was ridiculous... Tried an 80/20 70/30 and 50/50. Each mixture was stronger than straight 93. I did get the cel to display a few times when I ran 50/50, but it pulled like a damn freight train.
