How do YOU HDR?

So I've been TRYING to do some HDR shots, but they just aren't coming out great.

What I'm looking for is a very general workflow for those who have had good results doing HDRs for automotive photography. Please list program(s) used and general steps taken.

I have registered versions of both Photomatix Pro and Dynamic-Photo HDR and both are fine. I haven't played with either enough to get "awesome" results but they both work. Take multiple exposures of the same shot (tripod works best here, I'm thinking you already know that) and upload them into the program. The tone-mapping that comes built in to the programs does a pretty decent job but on occasion I'll mess with the settings myself.

My problem with HDR pics is that they almost always come out looking too grainy/noisy/oversatured/etc and I'm not a fan of the look.
