Kimberlee understands luxury service. She called me before hand to see if there is anything extra she could do, she picked me up at the airport, walked through what I need to know, suggested great roads, and then picked up the car at my preferred location! Car is an attention getter. People complimented throughout the day. Drives as well as it looks. I loved the loud exhaust. Only manual Cayman in San Diego, I have no regrets.
