Recommended Car Wash in Los Angeles Area

Any one use a good hand car wash place for weekly/bi-weekly washes. I read in past posts some folks recommend a place called Lavaggio but that's too far out for me. Looking for a place near Downtown LA/Pasadena area.

I would love to hand wash it myself but takes 2 hours for each car and just don't have the time anymore. Some of these mobile detailers do good jobs but they don't provide regular washes. A $30 hand wash doesn't flow well from a business perspective for them to drive out to your place. Any one in the area know of a good place around town? Thanks.

Thanks bighungry. The only response is from NJ. Wow, I take it all F10 owners in LA wash their own cars.

My pleasure Decboy.

FYI Eric @ Envious is part of an exclusive network of top proffesional detailers.
He is one that I would trust with my own car.
At the very least he should be able to steer you in the right direction.

Good luck!

I can't comment because the last wash I took my car to (the one time I told myself I'd take it to a wash) f'ed it up and put me in a premature "correction mode".

I think best thing to do is Yelp them and find a HAND ONLY wash.

I wish there were mobile detailing guys who would come to your house/apt/spot and do a great simple wash job. Though for a cost effective price it would be a waste of their time.
