How much are you willing to spend?

68 auto detail is good, but its somewhere between 20 and 30 for a car wash I believe, but its completely hand wash and they do a good job.

http://www.68autodetail.com/

Pacific Car Wash is cheaper, but they just wash your car real quick. But they put your car on some kind of pulley system as they wash it, which makes me antsy. Not sure if thats an issue for a lowered car. Not exactly the best, but they get the job done I suppose.

Those are the only two places I've been to so far in Fremont that don't run your car through an automated machine.

The 76 gas station on Automall off 680 does car washes as well, but I don't remember much about it, but quite a few people go there.

I use http://autopiacarwash.com/location.htm in Martinez. No problems with my stock height E92. They also do hand wash. I get a killer VIP deal, $40 a month for unlimited washes, and -10 cents per gallon of Union 76 gas there. Not sure if the Freemont location has gas though.

I take my car to AJ's in San Jose. $55 ($50 if you get on their mail list and get their monthly coupon) gets you a hand wash, dry, wax, vacuum, and interior clean. They call it a mini detail. I don't know what products they use, but my leather makes more fart noises after and the pedals squeak against my shoes after. This is a sign of quality to me.

when i have to go to skool and can't wash my car at home i just take it to those self wash car washes. U dont need soap just use the pressure hose and rise it. In my opinion its the best option too for a quick wash because you dont wanna run it through a car wash. Also they have a brush there that looks like a mop. DONT use it! i was trying to wash some bugs off my front bumper and it scratched it up a bit, but its good for rims. I think its usually like 1.50 for 5 minutes and i usually spend 3 bucks to give it a real good rinse.

That's what I do most of the time when I use to work in San Leandro. But I don't think there's one here in Fremont area. Is there any here that I don't know?

+1 for AJs but not really convenient for Fremont. Autotopia will hand wash your car off the line. I've seen them do it with other cars. Not sure if extra charge. I know there's a self-wash place in Hayward off Mission.
