Default Hi guys, just moved to Torrance... Looking for a place to get my car detailed...

So if you saw it on Off Topic, I just got a Corvette (after owning a SICK swapped GC8 and then a modded '05 STI) and drove Florida - New York - LA. Now I'm living in Torrance (outside LA) and was hoping to get involved a bit with the car scene here...
First of all I was wondering if anyone could help me with:

1- What is a good place to get my car detailed around here? Hopefully without paying a fortune or ending up with swirl marks galore...

2- Where can I take my car to have my rear window re-tinted? I had a horrible hack job done in NC and need it re-done

3- Know of any good stereo shops? I want a double DIN navigation put on my car but it comes with a 1.5 Din slot

Any car meets, cool places to hang out at that I should be aware off?
I may drive a Corvette but I'm still a Subaru enthusiast

I got my car done at a little place on Hawthorne and Manhattan Beach BLVD. I got the back windows at 5%, fronts at 30% and a windshield strip (was originally 5% but the windshield cracked and 30% was put on the new one) for $200. The guy is cool and does really good work. I'm very happy with it.

As for detailing, that's something I prefer to do myself.

And definitely come to the 190th/Anza meet Friday nights
