probably not cousin. Do you know where the Caldecott tunnel is? I guess the shortest route if you want to go to Berkeley from 680.

there's one in Hayward (but I am not sure if they still have it) by Hesperian. The owner's name is Hector Tamayo and he drives this black M5.

From South side SJ, take 880N, exit Coleman, go left. At the next light past Hedding, on your left side, there's a place called "AJ's detailing." You'll probably see it right away with all the exotics and luxury cars out front. The owner (AJ) is always out front working and is a great guy. The have a full menu, but I always go for the Mini Detail. They take your car for about 40minutes to an hour and fully wash and detail the interior. The car comes out lookin like it just rolled out of the dealership.

AJ's Menu and prices.

Not ready for a summer detail quite yet, but I'll definitely keep these guys in mind. Right now, I'm just looking for a quick wash/vacuum etc.

My girlfriend asked my once why I was flipping off this driver of another BMW.

"No babe, that was a thumbs up. He's got a nice car."

ha ha ha. My wifey is so used to me everytime I see something rather amusing or odd. One time we were at a stop light and the other car (honda shitvic)was really revving hard, he then proceeded to driving real fast (a'la fast and the furious) but he saw me clapping - homeboy was clueless and shaking his head (coz I see him when the cop pulled him over..) that the light was meant for the other lane (you know one of those semi confusing traffic lights) and that the motorcycle cop was right behind him ha ha ha.
