Car owners are enjoying sitting around in dealerships a little more these days while their cars get worked on. Need to check your e-mail while your car is getting an oil change? No problem, log onto one of the computers over there in the corner. Forgot your lunch as you're taking in your truck for a broken window regulator? No problem, just hook yourself up with a sandwich and some oreos at the little cafe.

Read on for some specific upgrades to Detroit-area dealerships.
