Fantastic Car Detailing!

The shine is like glass
I don't usually plug businesses on this blog but when I find a good one I will.

Recently I had the opportunity to get my Ford Explorer detailed at Detail 301 in Beverly Hills.  Located deep below Rodeo Drive in the garage for trendy shops, Detail 301 provides all the usual car wash and detail services you would expect.  It's sister business, AutoVault, stores some fairly high end autos for celebrities and other movers and shakers when they're not driving their favorite Bugatti, Porsche, Lamborghini, etc.

Nice clean interior
The difference here between Detail 301 and even high end car detailers around town is, well, the detail.  The crew spent nearly five hours on my car, getting it more than just polished but clean down to every nook and cranny.  By the time they were done, it literally seemed like I had a new car.

At $235 for an SUV ($215 for passenger cars), it's not cheap. It's Beverly Hills, people.  However when you consider the average detail job at your local car wash is about $75 - $115, factoring in the high level of work Detail 301 performs, I actually find this a bargain.  Unless you routinely drive through mudholes or you allow your eight year old to eat ice cream cones daily in the back seat, this clean job is going to last for a while and you may not need as many car washes going forward.

Hot looking tires!
I highly recommend Detail 301. While you wait, you can window shop at Armani or hang out at the nearby Starbucks and gawk at the rich and fabulous.

Detail 301 is located at:

440 North Rodeo Drive (parking garage for Brooks Brothers)
Beverly Hills
(near Santa Monica Blvd)
