Cool "Take It To The Car Wash"

Took my hemi overland to the car wash today. Snapped a few pics.

Always fun taking it to the personalized car wash instead of the automatic drive by car wash.

Thanks bro, there's nothing more than a good car wash.

Nothing I love more than doing it myself, but I was way too tired today to wash it myself so took it to the personalized car wash.

Re: "Take It To The Car Wash"

Great pics!

Hand car wash places are great. I just got mine washed last night and it seems like they really do pay a lot more attention to detail vs automatic washes. But for $25, they should anyway LOL

Re: "Take It To The Car Wash"

In the Middle East that's all they do is HandWash. When I went to Lebanon, we got our Jeep Hand-washed there.

Re: "Take It To The Car Wash"

Yeah Chaoul in Kuwait, it costs about 2.5 Kuwaiti Dinars just for interior and exterior wash (without lifting the truck or engine wash) since the car is still brand new I didn't see the point of doing so until I get my first oil change done. I'm still at around 650km on the clock.

You usually tip the guy at least half a dinar (since they tend to pay a lotttttttttttt of attention when cleaning the ride) though I tip them a Dinar to each worker.

So 2.5 Dinars for the wash

a Dinar for the guy who does the exterior wash

a Dinar for the guy who cleans the interior

a Dinar for the guy that does the wiping down of the car and shining of the wheels/rimz.

So in total I end up paying about 5.5KD

Conversion of that to USD is about just under 20 bucks. Though I am considered to "overtip" them. The norm is around half a dinar to 750 fils (3/4 of a dinar). Some people tend to tip them a quarter dinar (250fils) each and some don't even tip. Though I regularly see half Dinars going around.

It's no surprise that when I go back there, the workers recognize me and I get better service than most people around. It's funny what good intentions can do for a person

There's only one thing better than a clean Jeep...and that'd a DIRTY JEEP ! Hopefully this weekend she's going out to the Desert with me so stay tuned for pics and hopefully some dirty jeep loveeeee. (no I'm not going to invade my jeep's exhaust just incase someone was thinking that lol)

Re: "Take It To The Car Wash"

Yeah the currency is dinar and our equivalent of cents = fils. Though 1,000 fils make a dinar. So our quarter is 250 fils. Glad to share the info
