Fathers Day - Boxster/M5/Benz

My son came over in his Mom's M5 and we detailed the cars and went for some fun driving. Was a nice day. Zaino products came in the other day so we got a second coat on the Porsche, one coat on the Benz, and did a quick detail on the M5. While out for a drive we took some pics and then more of the amazing finish achieved with the Zaino product, I'm a believer now.

The M5 is bad a$$ fast and handles beautifully. My son agreed he felt more connected and aware of the road in the Boxster and was impressed with the high end torque. After getting out of the 530hp M5 I figured there would be a let down but the Box held up well. I pushed the M5 hard and put up speeds in the hair-pins that were 5mph faster then I do in the Box but then I knew the traction control would save my butt, and I'm still not skilled enough yet to be sure I can control light over steer...and I would hate to put my baby in a wheat field.

Enjoy the shine and hope everyone had a nice day with their son/daughters too!

The shine looks great.

Chris Bangle was a sadist. He was canned but his style continues to mar BMWs.

I didn't know who he was until just now, interesting. Was he involved in the new 5 series design, I think it is one of the best in years. As for the M5 in the pictures I posted, I think my Benz is much nicer looking, and well you guess where I think Porsche is
