Wash n go

I must say that cars in HK look immaculate!

At the end of an evening at a posh restaurant.
Diners waited inline for their cars to be driven to them.

Each car that arrived before me for their waiting owners was nothing short of showroom gloss standard. The spot lights on the porch combined with the cars xenons, bling bling wheels and ultra deep wet detailing redefined what a mirror should look like.

Then mine arrived...I was pretty ashamed when the spot lights revealed how grotty mine was. Even the waiting diners fainted in aghast! My date went missing and it was all going so well!

I've not washed it since I've got it and it doesn't help that where I'm staying they won't allow me to hose down or throw buckets of water over it like you do outside of HK.

So where in the New Territories can I just arrive and get the car clean for a reasonable price?

Cheers!

don't goto the guys at wilson wash and wax. I had previously purchased one of their bundles out of empathy for the sales person. Recently i was nearing the expiry date and he used the same schtick on me again. I told him no because i was never really satisfied with their work. Came back the car wasn't washed very well, had dirt stains on the lower skirts. My chair was put into the most forward position, passenger seat was put into the most back position and my mirrors were fucked around with. Bunch of douche bags. Also it seemed like my car had a few minor scratch marks that i don't know if it came from rocks (which it would be too tidy) or from menacing low paid workers and because i had signed his little disclaimer stating car had "imperfections" i can't do shit about it either. I live in the New Territories too but i either goto cars in TST or i bring it to Carsland in north point.

Hi! Which part of New Territories are you living in? Castle Peak Road? Tsuen Wan, Sham Tseng, Shatin, Tung Chung!? Let us know which area is convenient to you, then we can give you some suggestions.

I'm from Tsuen Wan and work in Kwai Fong, not so sure about Shatin.
But I saw few car beauty shops in Tai Wai charged from $70 to $80 for a shampoo wash.
