Beach fun

I went to Houston to visit my sister and brother in law and found a beach. Took a few pictures. Enjoy.

Glad to see I'm not the only one that takes my E39 off the road! Looks like fun.

Shame. You don't feel bad at all? I took mine up to a cabin in the mountains past Park City, and was kicking myself because of it.

I once realized that my 540i was a nice car, but not a show car. So scrapes on the underside don't bother me. The E39 is a well designed car, and as a result it can do many things. The only catch is that you have to be ok thoroughly washing it.

Salt water never sleeps

What's done is done, but I would not make a habit of splashing salt water on to any car.
Most people who live near the ocean feel the effects without splashing in.
Make sure you wash the bottoms of your doors as well.
