Car Wax Costs £100,000

Some people love their cars way more than is healthy. I don't find that an impressive trait in a person. In that respect I am like Shania Twain. But there's a new service for car lovers that shocks even me and Shannie.

A company in Fife is offering an "Ultimate Shine" car wash for £100,000.

For that much money wouldn't it just be easier to buy crap loads of other cars and throw the one you're using away when it gets dirty?

The wash uses special Carnauba wax, also known as Brazil wax. Hang on. You pay to give your car a Brazilian waxing? I guess that's where they remove all the hair off the car apart from a small strip that leads up to the driver, because in this metaphor he's the tw... well, you see where I'm going with this.

The wax along costs £65,000. But you have to pay an extra £35,000. For that I'd hope you get a really good tree-shaped air freshener.

Paul Wilkins, who runs and owns the company, said: "For that price I will fly out to any location in the world." Mate, if you even told me that price I'd tell you to "fly off", ish.

He added: "Each job is so different but what I say is that, for the £100,000 price, I will work on the car for as long as it takes. I'm a perfectionist so sometimes it's taken me a few months before I'm happy to hand the keys back."

Are you sure it's perfectionism and you're not just trying to roll the odometer back from the extra miles you put on it? I'm not falling for that ever since I saw the documentary about Ferris Bueller.
