The line is onto the street now. I would guess an hour wait or so to finish your wash

They are still doing test runs and most are learning how to use their gear.


One of the guys there saw my RS sticker and asked if I am a member. I'd say he was the most "careful" out of all.

It's free - can't complain because I was too lazy to wash and vaccum it myself. 7/10 exterior and 9/10 interior.
I was Accord dude right behind you.

Talked to the boss, he said they charge about $25 for what they did for us.

They should have swapped the entrance and exit. Hazelbridge is way too busy for a line up.

went for a wash...

pretty decent job. took their time.


most of the staff were pretty polite.

sponge wash, cleaned wheels, rinsed underbody and had windows cleaned in and out.

all and all, pretty decent job.

would rate at about a 7.5 to 8.

one of the guys that worked there asked if i was from RS.. and i said yes. took care of the car the whole time and washed as i instructed (dont spray water directly to my Z's rubber seals.) talked to him about eventual RS members pricing... see if we could get our washes done for cheaper, or at a group rate (say 10 cars show up to do a wash meet)

worth the 15min wait..

fairlady Z.



just like GT auto in gran turismo. awww yea

I would rate the exterior 7 out of 10. Some tight spots (just before the underside of the trunk) were not cleaned well. My rims were also still dirty (read below for more). There was a bit of soap they missed, but everyone makes mistakes, so all was good. As for the interior, the windows were wiped decently and the dash still had dust on it. For the vacuuming job, I cannot say much as my car is only two months old and I vacuum regularly.

The white guy who did my wheels was not great. He was using a bristle brush with a short handle. He couldn't handle my stock SI rims. I did not say anything. When the car was being dried, the manager noticed my dirty rims and was outraged (almost none of the gunk was cleaned in between; it looked smudged all over). I pretended not to notice so he wouldn't have to apologize.

Because of the manager's doing, I would come back to this place again. It is $25 for what was offered for free today.

Well I understand it must have been a long day for them, but I did notice a few uncleaned spots on my car. But overall pretty good service.

Lucky we went before the crowd showed up. Seems like you took some pictures of the place as well?

I will be waiting for their whole pricing menu.

Honestly, I would go there for the interior and vaccum service, around $15 would be reasonable for what they did interior-wise. They did a pretty good job, even wipe down my door jambs (although I don't think it's a good choice to use the same towel to wipe dust off my dash and my windshield...)

I would stay away from any exterior work. Wouldn't want those brush on my summer wheels or those drying towels scrape against the paint.


Owner was good, LG wearing the pink waterboots and RS guy did the most work. He even wiped down my mud flaps!

The long hair white guy seems like he doesn't know what he is doing and keep on knocking the damn hose against my front bumper.

not bad at all. can't say if they introduce swirls, but their process is good (ie: sponges get cleaned with every vehicle... different sponge for each panel)

Good overall, I'll probably return.
It's a free wash - If i had a fiver on me I would have tipped. But all I had were coins and a 20

brought my dad's Impreza cause my own car was washed at home for the meet
The Camry was a joke I played for the spring meet (like I do for every meet). I just slapped a Camry badge on my TL lol

but yeah your fairlady was sick. My brother got a good face whenever you started it up.
