Extreme Makeover, Mequiar’s Edition

Suburban Spa Treatment

One great thing about SoCal is being able to snowboard and go to the beach in the same day. Even the slopes of Utah are within reach. It’s not so great if you’re a car, however. That sort of climate change can be pretty hard on your four-wheeled conveyance. You get all the grime and abuse that snow, sand, sun, and sea can throw at you in a single day trip. When we drove eight hours each way (yes, uphill, in the snow) for a snowboarding run at Brian Head, Utah, our Chevy Suburban suffered the consequences. It came home hammered from the all that grime. And having five people inside of it for 16 hours didn’t exactly work wonders for its interior, either.

In short, that Chevy needed a spa day.

One which Laguna Niguel Car Wash and Detail happily provided. They only use high end Megiuars products which not only made for a much happier SUV, it made for a better driving experience afterward, too.
meguiars wash and polish
First, our patient received a full hand wash with Megiuars wash product, clay bar, wheel polish, and paint polish and wax on the exterior. On the interior, Laguna Car Wash treated the cockpit to Megiuars leather cleaner and conditioner. They also shampooed the carpets and scrubbed the WeatherTech mats.

Treatment like this:

All of which added up to a Suburban that looked and felt like new. At least, until the next snowboarding run.

And if our Suburban doesn’t look stock to you, good catch. It’s had some work done including parts from Toyo Tires, Weld Racing, Hellwig, Flowmaster, Thule, Volant, Yakima, and T-Rex Grilles.
