My timing is predictable when it comes to getting my car washed—always before it rains, and now, before a nor’easter named Sandy. On Friday I was on the Route 5 side of town with 45 minutes between appointments, so I pulled into the new Mega Auto Spa. I enjoyed the excellent service and the chance to stay in the car as it goes through the wash (watching the suds and brushes is still a cheap thrill to me!)
You can choose your own options at the automated drive-through payment teller, but the helpful attendant did it for me. Then he guided me to the wash tunnel entrance, unscrewed my car’s attenna and instructed me to put the gear in neutral, keep my foot off the breaks, and hands off the steering wheel. After the suds, rinse, wax and dry in the tunnel, I pulled inside the clean and spacious detailing bay. The waiting room was very comfortable and I enjoyed chatting with a new friend from the college while we watched our cars get detailed. $24 and 30 minutes well spent!
If the Mega Auto Wash and Spa isn’t convenient, then my old favorite is the Buggy Bathe on Richmond Road. We’ve got two great options for sparkling vehicles as we cruise the streets of Williamsburg.
