Best Car Washes in Los Angeles

Hello everyone,

So I need to wash my car, but my hose is not working because the water is currently shut off due to a few issues, this is only temporary but my car still needs a bath!!

Does anyone know where a good place is for a hand wash?

In times like these, I usually take my car to Handy J's.

Curious to see what else everyone has to share!

Thanks

I used to goto drive through car washes.

I then started reading up on detailing. Now I would *never* goto one of those places!

I've been using Optimum No Rinse with a grout sponge or the spray your own wash lately.

Same. I used to go to Handy J, but now I either wash it myself or I go here: Lavaggio

There literally is no place like it...Every time my car looks better than new. A bit of a drive, but completely worth it. If you ever go, ask for Dusty or Lydia and tell them that M3 Josh sent you

Lavaggio is the place to go if you want the best, but it is on the pricey side.

Oh and by the way, there is a place in Newport Beach that I used to take my car to on the way back from Cars & Coffee in Irvine, the carwash is next to the Ferrari showroom. Anyone heard of it? They do a really good job too.

Yeah I think that sometimes as well But what I like to do is roll in there right after my car is filthy from a canyon run since the canyons are right there
