Courtesy of Bug:

All hand washes Bro - I'll rank them in my fav order and why

1. Near North Car Wash on Superior just W of Des Plaines - AWSOME job for $25.00 - Only downside is there is almost always a line

2. We'll Clean on Clybourn N of Webster - These guys take their time and it is worth the drive - $25.00 - Only downside is it is a bit n for me with 3 others close by

3. Gold Coast Car Wash on Des Plaines just N of Chicago Ave - Good Job and in and out pretty quick but a line can form in seconds there - $22.00

4. We Wash 3 on Halsted just S of Grand - $20 somethin I think and it is okay - There is a reason it is #4

All are good and all are hand wash and hand dry and all include Interior/Exterior with AA on the tires

That's one of the things I miss the most about Chicago. I have yet to find a car wash in Cedar Rapids that does hand jobs. I cringe every time I take the BYC to the car wash.

Company car?? Sheeet, there's a DIY/Powerwash 4000 off of (it's either North Ave or Division), right off of the highway. It's like $11 for the highest wash, then again, you have to wipe it yourself or hire a hobo, which can be found under the viaduct.

Wash it every two weeks then - I hope your job does not require you to work with numbers

yeah it doesn't work that way. I only get a wash like once a month, but the expense report gets flagged on a per line item basis.

I am confident that if we think this through, we can get around this minor inconvience - I have spent a good many year ripping off corporations and consider myself to be quite good at it too - Let me know if Yoda needs to wax his ways

i go to turtle wax on north avenue and halsted. decent price and they do ok. they dry your car and do the windows inside and out, vacuum the interior and wipe down the dash.

Pierre's on Elston just north of Montrose. Hands down the best carwash value. Starts at $9.99 for hand carwash, $7.99 for early bird during the weekdays . Probably one of the few things I miss about Chicago. I have yet to find a San Diego equivalent.
