Talking South Fl - Recommend me a Car Wash

Since I moved to brickell and Have no garage I need a place to weekly take my car to get a bath.

recommend me spots other than the two on us1.

The car can't be on a belt, because of my top. ( has to be hand wash only )

also if they do clay or w.e. wax.

?

gracias

Shell gas station on Key Biscayne. They are the best, and take care of tons of top-end cars. $30 for a hand wash and interior clean. Perfect for regular washes.

Yeah, but it's VERY well done. I wash myself normally, and bring the car to them once a month for the full wash/clean.

So I tried Miami Auto Spa, I had 5 cars infront and I was out by 35 minutes. I timed them, just got a regular wash. Asked about how much would it be to clay the car, was quoted $189. They have monthly and yearly specials. Oh btw I paid 18 bucks for the wash, and tipped the guy 5 bucks.

in their lobby they have 2 small tv's, I watch ESPN first take with skip bayless and steven a smith. ( awesome show ) praising lebron. haha

jimmy you were right, its 2 blocks away from me. I got a new spot!

given the fact your paint is susceptible to all kinds of damage after that without a sealant or wax on it.

Good, I need to stop by one of these days to try them out, although my favorite Carwash still the chevron on bird and 107th, those guys there leave your car spotless and it's only $15 bucks

I prefer to wash my car myself. So I go to the car wash stalls next to the 7-11 on the corner of SW67th Ave (Ludlam) and SW56th St (Miller).

I just don't have 100% confidence that the kids working at the car wash places don't accidentally drop damp towels on the ground, pick up small debris, then scratch the car up.

Same reason I sometimes use gas station car washes (no touch), and never the car washes with the spinning potential scratching rubber/cloths.

For finishing, I use Zaino products. They are easy to use and last a long time.

Yes it's near UM. It's a standard stall do-it-yourself place. Drop 7 quarters (minimum) in the machine and use the spray gun and soapy brush (which I pre-wash with the spray gun to remove any debris). I usually use about 12 quarters. Then you dry it yourself using a natural chamois, or hitting it first with their $1 blow dry gun which knocks off most of the water and cuts your chamois time by about 80%.

And then, you hit it with your Zaino products that you ordered previously:

http://www.zainostore.com

They have various products depending on what you want.

But like I said, I like to do this myself. Some of my friends aren't interested and always take it to a full service place.

Miami does NOT have very many do-it-yourself places. I used to go to one in Palmetto Bay on US1, because I just didn't know of one closer until I found this one. I live in coral gables.

I'm going to have to check out that place as well. I live in the Gables and have started washing the car with two buckets in my garage. Giant pain in the ass.
