    Best car wash in Edinburgh (value for money :-)

    Aye the best one would probably be one of those top rated detailing/valet jobs in the £100s if not £1,000s (so I qualified it :-).

    So what's the best drive through or hand job where the boys get all wet and soapy?

    Oh course it's a serious thread!

    My motor is dirty enough to grow tatties and doing by hand isn't going to happen in this weather.

    Perhaps it would be safer if your wife done it for you.
    I would have replied earlier but only just managed to pick myself up from the floor from laughing.

    I've used the one on Ferry Road (near the Morrisons) and the one on the Glasgow Road and both did a good job. A mate swears by the hand wash one at Chesser.

    I've not owned a car for 7 years, but I used to take my last car over to the one on the ground floor of the car park at Ocean Terminal. A wee Polish guy called Jarek did a cracking full valet service at a very decent price.

    I can't comment on the availability of "happy endings" or any such additional services as I was happy just having my car cleaned.

    Had mine done for the first time by them a few weeks ago when passing by there and they did an excellent job.

    I used to use Glasgow Road until I tried the one in Edinburgh business centre car park down towards Seafield. Cheaper and a far better job done so now a regular.

    Before all the car wash suggestions came up (thanks :-) I went to the one opposite the Shell garage at Seafield.

    A wee spray down, power wash then though a automatic wash ... and yes Crops I was blow dried to finish off! £5.

    I'm pleased with the finish.

    Thanks for the other replies too!

    That's what you think.

    He hasn't detailed the 'ins and outs' of his 'wax down' yet.

    Hopefully they managed to clean all that WD40 out of your keyhole.

    Wasn't such a happy ending as he didn't get anything from his wish list.

    On second thoughts he didn't end up in jail, so a happy ending after all.

    Find a decent local detailer, I use a guy through here who uses nothing but Angelwax products and itís £10 a pop!

    Local scratch and shines that use dirty sponges and cheap watered down traffic film remover give me the fear!

    Always heaving and full of taxis a sign itís good and value for money.

    Personally I think itís always best to do yourself itís about the only maintenance I can do these days and letís you spot a lot of things to take to the garage.

    On the subject of petrol the new Costco is cheap and seems ok fuel. I used to fill up at Asda/ Sainsburys but after keeping a tab on mileage I found you didnít get as many miles out a full tank as you did at shell.

    Also while Iím here I used the shell loyalty card for a year about 15 years ago spent £2000 in a year and all I got was a £10 gift voucher.

    Finally does anyone use the premium fuel I do sometimes but donít really see any benefit. Remember redex?

    The car wash at the wisp is excellent. For £10 they wash, wax, dry, wipe down your sills and do your tyres. You get an air freshener as well.
    For efficiency bubbles in seafield is the best, they have by far the best system for washing cars.
