Seasonal And Long-term Safe Storage Of Luxury Cars

Luxury car owners in the United States are responsible for 6% of all vehicle purchases in the country. Studies show that some of the main motivators behind this exclusive group include status acquisition, comfort, safety and convenience, resale value and in many instances, sheer passion. Whatever the case, no one is ever on the road 100% of the time with just one luxury car. This brings us to the critical question – what is the best way to ensure the safety of one of these mean machine whenever it’s not in use?

The perfect location

Luxury cars are best stored in a dry and dust-free environment. Accumulated dust eventually wears out the paint on the car and can cause permanent damage to its body and functionality. Crucial to protecting the durability of the wheels and tires is a clean floor. A garage lined with a parking mat ensures that a vehicle is fully protected in this sense. A car’s exterior can also crack and fade under excessive exposure to light, so it is recommended that vehicles are stored in dark, indoor spaces.

Super cars such as the Cadillac Escalade and the Chrysler 300 are listed as among some of the most stolen vehicles in the United States. Top notch security is a must-have. CCTV surveillance and security guards should be the bare minimum for a luxury car storage unit or campus.

A full tank and changed oil

For an extended period of storage, filling up the tank ensures that there is no moisture condensation and prevents rusting. This is especially applicable with some of the recent all-time low temperatures being reported across the country. Adding a fuel stabilizer protects the fuel system from gum, varnish and rust. It also keeps the fuel from hardening for as long as one year or more. A short drive-around is good to ensure that the stabilizer spreads well throughout the fuel system after which the tank should once again be furnished to the brim. Changing the oil and oil filter is also necessary to protect the engine while the car is in storage.

Clean, fully prepped car

The car itself should be clean and fully prepped for storage. This should start with washing off of any visible dust and dirt, and then use of a clay bar to remove unseen dirt particles. Polishing and waxing the car is important to buff off any scratches and protect the exterior. The interior requires a thorough clean up of the dashboard, air vents and upholstery. Sprinkled baking soda or an open bag of charcoal are good options to absorb any bad odors in the interior.

The exhaust should be covered – preferably with aluminum foil to keep away pests and insects. Door hinges, window tracks and the gas tank lid need lubrication to reduce wear and ensure they do not jam. When storing the car, it should be covered with a tight-fitting cloth that allows for breath-ability.

The place for the super car is on the road, but everyone’s hand is forced when winter comes. At times, people have to be away for long and in some instances, there are just too many cars to be driven at the same time. Whatever the case, proper storage procedures will always help to protect the value of a luxury cars, or any other car for that matter.

Extending the Luxury Automotive Experience Into Maintenance

Why invest in a car that costs more than some homes if you can’t keep it looking and performing its absolute best? When it comes to luxury vehicles, a luxury approach to maintenance may be necessary. Thankfully, there are plenty of options for the modern driver. From the clothing that you wear to the quality of tools you utilize, you can invest in luxury items that will have your vehicle gleaming and running like the high-performance machine it is.

Dress for Your Role With Clothing Protection and Boots

Those committed to maintaining their own luxury vehicles know that wear and tear know no season. In fact, colder months and times of increased precipitation may increase the need for maintenance on your vehicle. One of the first things you need to invest in, regarding luxury vehicle maintenance, is the right set of coveralls, as well as a sturdy pair of work boots.

Steel-toed boots are not just for factory workers. They are there for anyone handling heavy items that could prevent a risk to the bones in the feet if dropped on the toes. That will include you, if you are doing work on your car. There are many luxury brands of work boots that combine the function of reinforced toes and protection of integrated leather and rubber with the fashion you would expect from a higher-end product.

Of course, your feet aren’t the only thing you want to protect. Although you likely have a pair of older jeans and a shirt that you don’t mind getting dirty for when you work on your vehicle, you also need to think about your skin and your hair. Obviously, a hat will suffice for protecting your hair, but you will want to invest in the specialized coveralls for when you’re working under your car.

Long sleeves and long pants, ideally in a single piece, will prevent the incursion of fluids from the vehicle and keep your skin and clothing clean. There are many upscale options, including fireproof and even cold weather insulated work suits that will ensure you can comfortably maintain your luxury vehicle even during the worst weather.

Invest In a Quality Set of Basic Tools

The quality of the tools you use will impact your success, as well as your enjoyment of vehicle maintenance. There are certain tools that every home mechanic needs, which include:

·         an air compressor
·         air tools, such as an impact wrench or air powered drills
·         AN wrenches
·         professional-grade crimping tools
·         wire cutters and pliers
·         tap and die sets in both American and metric
·         automotive screwdrivers
·         a torque wrench
·         a comprehensive ratchet and socket set

Although you will only need to use most of these tools occasionally, having them on hand ensures that you can assess and complete any vehicle maintenance tasks quickly and efficiently. Buying luxury tools is important to maintaining your vehicle, if for no other reason then it will keep you enthusiastic about your maintenance tasks.

Handle each tool before purchasing, checking for adequate handle padding and durability. Invest in higher quality metals and more comprehensive, complete sets. There is nothing more frustrating than discovering you simply don’t have the right socket in your ratchet case. To get the best quality items, you may need to speak with a mechanic, who can advise you about the brands that will work best with your make and model of luxury vehicle.

Keeping a car clean and waxed reduces the damage to its exterior. Proactively handling any issues with aging or in the engine and transmission can prevent larger issues from developing. Keeping track of routine maintenance needs, from new filters to oil changes, is critical. So, too, is the ability to identify when you need professional help. However, with the right tools and equipment, you can surely handle most routine cleaning and maintenance issues for your luxury vehicle on your own.

The Lamborghini Urus has Arrived!

We have been waiting a long time , and I honestly cannot remember the last time I was this excited for a new vehicle to hit our fleet. The anticipation has been building for what felt like decades for this one of a kind suv to hit the market. Lamborghini first showed the Urus concept in Beijing back in 2012. Our own staff member Tom went to an unveiling of the production version Lamborghini Urus in Philadelphia in 2018.

Now however, the cycle is complete and Imagine Lifestyles luxury and exotic rentals has received their very own Lamborghini Urus suv, and you can book a rental or chauffeur service in this raging bull today! Fully optioned out to meet the demanding taste of our clients we chose a tasteful black, with bright green accents. 23 inch wheels and tires were also added to make sure that this luxury SUV stands out from the crowd.

The interior features every option available on this model as well. From the alcanterra covered pillars, to the rear seat charging station, we wanted to make sure that you would experience every comfort available. The Lamborghini Urus is no slouch when it comes to performance numbers either. Boasting a 600+ hp powertrain, and a 0-60 time under 4 seconds, the Urus will certainly be a fun drive, as well as a head turner.

Currently in Miami, FL the Lamborghini Urus rental is available for immediate reservation. Imagine Lifestyles has plans to bring the Lamborghini Urus rental to Philadelphia area for prom season as well, where it will be available for both rental, or chauffeur service in 2019. Imagine Lifestyles can even bring the Urus suv rental to your door in New York or New Jersey with our VIP Delivery Service.

Dining in the Dark only in Vegas

Dining in the Dark??? Is that an actual thing? They say Las Vegas is a great town where you can experience almost anything. They certainly got that right if you go to Dining in the Dark. Now here is the breakdown, I booked my reservations for my wife and I to go when we were in Vegas. I knew it was going to be a unique experience, however I did not realize how the simple idea of turning off the lights while you eat would be the most interesting thing I did in Vegas. Yes, that is a bold statement as there is an infinite amount to do in Vegas.

Vegas Eating in Dar

Great time Dining in the Dark with Blackout

We arrived at 7PM for our reservation. After a short wait we had a formal introduction with our waiter in the lobby where the lights are on and you can still see. Our waiter instructed me to put my hand on his shoulder and my wife put her hand on my shoulder (I thought this was quite odd). Next we made our way into the dark abyss. I could not believe how freakin dark it was in that room. I held onto his shoulder for dear life as if I lost him I would be gone forever. That is how dark the room was!!

We made it to our seats without falling or losing each other. I believe we had the best seats in the house, but who knows. The waiter explained where everything was on the table and we felt around as he explained. I was thinking ok my eyes will adjust and I will see brief glimpses soon, 5 mins went by…. still dark, 10 mins went by…. still dark, now I knew I was fully in the dark with no eye adjustment left. It was similar to when I went camping in the mountains of denver but even darker, much darker and without a flashlight or my phone!!!

The room was incredibly loud and I am not sure if that is because of the lack of sight or just the room itself. You could hear all the talking from table to table, but it was hard for me to concentrate on one particular conversation other than talking my wife through the experience. My wife, by the way, is not a fan of haunted houses or scary situations so I am not sure if this was making her uncomfortable to be in such a dark room, but what the heck when in Vegas!!

First our drinks came and navigating my cocktail was pretty easy. I think I have that down to a science so my concern for eating the food lessened. I was wrong about that……

When the first course arrived, our waiter explained where the Crab Cakes with Calamari they just tabled in front of us was and how to eat it. My mind was very confused. I could not see it and I was very nervous. Also, this is a vegetarian restaurant so I was interested in how I was eating crab and calamari. I used my hands on the first round and took a bite of the crab cake. It tasted crunchy on the outside and smooth in texture inside exactly like a perfect mini crab cake. I was happy and relieved as I finished the first course.

Next course was carrot coconut soup which I am not a fan of in general. Mostly it was an interesting game of trying to get the spoon to my face without spilling anything, not that anyone could have seen a stain on my shirt if I did. Our 3rd course was Almond and cheese platter which was simple yet fun as you picked up each morsel with your fingers to bite into. My favorite course was the 4th course which was zucchini garlic noodles. I do enjoy zucchini noodles and the chef did a great job preparing them. The main dinner course was the 5th course which was Seared scallops which seemed to be made with mushrooms. Last course was desserts which was Halva caramel crumble and Coconut chocolate truffles both a very good way to end the meal.

MENU BREAKDOWN

  1. Crab Cakes with Calamari

  2. Carrot Coconut Soup

  3. Almond Cheese and Fruit Platter

  4. Zucchini Noodles

  5. Sear Sear Scallops

  6. Dessert:

    1. Halva caramel crumble

    2. Coconut chocolate truffles

By the end of the meal, I was ready to get out of the dark. I knew I had enough as I put my hand up as the waiting instructed us to do if we needed anything. It took more time that I would have wanted for him to arrive but I was glad he came to our rescue.

I was very happy with this new experience that I embarked on. It may seem silly to some or not a thrill to others but to me this was an incredible unique dining experience. One that I would suggest anyone who want to either experience something new, unique or just anyone who loves a new way to experience food. Most importantly we left full, with a great memory and a great story to tell.

If you are going to be in the Las Vegas area and would like to try this unique dining experience for yourself, make your reservations today by going to their website: https://dineblackout.com/

Gift Ideas for Car Lovers that Can Fit Any Budget

The good thing about holiday shopping for someone who loves cars is the bounty of options ranging from stocking stuffer-level cheap to holy moly-level extravagant. The tough part is that car lovers are often very specific about what they like and you may not know a lot about cars. If you need some help buying the perfect gift for the automobile enthusiast in your life, consider these ideas.

 

First, consider their main relationship to cars

Being a car lover can mean a lot of things. When you’re deciding what to give the car lover in your life, you’ll want to first consider what they specifically love about cars. This will help guide you toward the right gift. They could be an amateur mechanic or at least a tinkerer. They could like racing (either in real life or virtual). They could simply love keeping their car in tip-top shape. They could be into toys and models. Find their sub-passion, and you’ll unlock the key to a perfect gift.

 

What to get the budding mechanic

If your loved one likes to work on cars (or just tinker with their own) one of these gifts may excite them:

  • Budget: A solid pair of mechanic’s gloves. Working on a car is dirty work, and you can get them a solid set for fairly cheap.
  • Mid-level: A piece to add to their tool collection. Think a torque wrench, power drill, auto jack, or a driver set.
  • Impressive: A fixer-upper (read: used car). Yes, you can get the budding mechanic their very own project to work on. It’s a great gift, and it’s actually more affordable than you think if you take the time to look online.

 

What to get the speed demon

Does your car lover feel the need … the need for speed? If so, try one of these:

  • Budget: How about something to watch or play? A classic car movie (Bullitt, for instance) or a modern video game make great gifts.
  • Mid-level: Racing gear. A new racing helmet, bodysuit, gloves, or shoes could be a great gift for anyone with a racing hobby. Check out this guide before buying.
  • Impressive: Get them the gift of an experience they will never forget. There are plenty of driving schools, racing experiences or even luxury rentals if you don’t mind spending a little more.

 

What to get the clean freak

Want to help your loved one keep a spotless car?

  • Budget: Home car care. Think sponges, rags, special cleansers, wax, buckets, etc.
  • Mid-Level: A nice shop vac or handheld cordless vacuum. It’s pretty much impossible to keep a car clean without one, especially if your loved one has kids or pets.
  • Impressive: Car detailing for a year. Buy your loved one gift certificates to get professional cleaning done every couple of weeks. Nothing says I care about you more than the gift of a constantly-sparkling car.

 

What to get the kid at heart

Car-related holiday gifts should be fun, right? Try these:

  • Budget: A model car kit. From the hundred-year-old Model T to a brand new Mustang, there’s a model for any type of car lover waiting to be built.
  • Mid-Level: A slot car race track. Remember these from your childhood? Well, the technology has improved and they are still a blast.
  • Impressive: This cooler designed to look like a Volkswagen van. Because, well, look at it!

 

These ideas are sure to wow even the most difficult to please auto aficionado on your shopping list. When you take the time to think of your car lover’s true passions, you’re sure to find something that will make them smile.

Luxurious Holiday Hosting for Newlyweds

The holiday season is upon us, and families across the world are in top gear prepping for the festivities. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Diwali or Festivus, the occasion will surely be best enjoyed surrounded by family and friends. While the notion of hosting may be daunting – especially for young couples and newlyweds – proper planning and the stylish, savvy touch can ensure you have a luxurious holiday that will be remembered through the years!

Presenting Your Home

If this is your first new home together, there’s no better time to show it off than the holiday season. Wreaths are an especially tasteful, understated way to decorate your home – it can put your curb appeal in a refined middle-ground between totally unfestive and Clark W. Griswold’s yuletide effigy! Have some candles on hand to create the perfect mood as you unwind, pour a few drinks and catch up with your family and friends; some great holiday scents include spruce, warm vanilla and gingerbread. Installing mood lighting with dimmer switches can be a great idea, especially if you host in the kitchen. The lighting can give you the best of both worlds, leaving you with a mellow space for carousing at the center island, or preparing Christmas dinner. However you plan to visit with your guests, be sure your home is looking its best!

 

Tableside Design

When hosting a gathering for the holidays, it is important to know what to expect and how to plan accordingly. While you don’t need a Victorian banquet hall to entertain, this can provide a great opportunity for new couples to host in style. If you’ve just moved into a new, luxury home, be sure to showcase it as such. One of the best ways to shine light on your new house is to have an elegant dinner with a tasteful design. You will need a sturdy dining table to seat your guests, which can also serve as a focus point for those homeowners with refined taste and uncanny design sensibilities! Think about a centerpiece that reflects the theme of your dining room – is it overstated with contemporary art and loud focal points? Or perhaps, if you’re going for a more eloquent, subtle vibe, consider a crystal centerpiece with candles and an elegant table runner. When it comes to serving, it is important to use dinnerware and silverware that match the table ambience, and don’t be afraid to throw patterned cloth napkins into the mix! When your guests arrive and sit down to dinner, they will be amazed by your keen eye for luxury.

 

Accommodating Guests

Whether your in-laws are planning on crashing for Christmas or your college friends will be staying to ring in the New Year, it’s important to have enough living space for your guests. While couches may be nice, your guests won’t want to sleep on them long term; it’s best to invest in new beds for your home. Splurging for a finely crafted, well-made mattress will provide your guests with a great night’s sleep (especially if they’re coming in from Seattle to JFK on a red-eye!) and will make their stay even better. Along with luxurious sheets (think Egyptian cotton or silk) and comfortable pillows, your guests will enjoy plush towels and an artisan soap to clean up with! Taking into account your guests need for self-care and rest will be gratefully appreciated by your friends and family, and sure to score you some points with your mother-in-law!

By sticking to these tips, any newlywed with a passion for luxury can confidently host their first holiday smoothly. Make sure your place is clean and in order when your guests arrive, and then prepare to dazzle them with your style and attention detail.

3 Fantastic Travel Credit Cards For the Digital Nomad

There are numerous guides on the internet that discuss the best travel credit cards. However, when you are a long-term traveler for work (or play), you may be looking for different things from your travel credit card to compliment your career and lifestyle.

This article discusses three fantastic cards at three different annual fee points (premium, mid-level annual fee, and no annual fee) that are all tailored to the digital nomad life. All three cards discussed have no foreign transaction fees.

Premium Travel Card: Chase Sapphire Reserve

The Sapphire Reserve is a Premium card, offering some of the best travel benefits and rewards on the market. However, it also has a premium $450 annual fee. While this fee is steep, don’t let this scare you away. If utilized correctly, the Sapphire Reserve can be a significant weapon in the wallet of the digital nomad. The 3x points on travel expenses are highly valuable to someone who is always on the road and can quickly add up to significant value. If you include this to the $300 in travel credit, the annual fee can very easily be neutralized. The Sapphire Reserve also has excellent travel protections including travel and emergency assistance, emergency medical and dental protection, and trip delay reimbursement. It also caters generously to the intrepid flyer, with benefits such as access to 1000+ airport lounges worldwide and credit for an expedited airport screening program.

Standout Rewards and Benefits for Digital Nomads

  • 3x Chase Ultimate Rewards points per dollar on travel and dining worldwide

  • $300 annual credit for travel

  • Visa Infinite Concierge – A personal phone concierge that can assist with non-emergency related requests such as reservation, tickets, and travel information

  • Priority Pass Select Membership – Access to over 1000 airport lounges worldwide

  • A Global Entry or TSA PreCheck Application Fee Credit for expedited airport screening

  • Significant travel protections including travel delay reimbursements to emergency dental and medical benefits

  • Signup Bonus: 50,000 points for spending $4000 in your first 3 months

Mid-Level Annual Fee Card: Capital One Venture Rewards Credit Card

The main draw of this card to digital nomads is the 10x miles on hotel bookings through Hotels.com. If you are someone who lives on the road and often stays in hotels, this 10x miles can be a major boon getting you effectively 10% cash back. The 2x miles on every other purchase is also fantastic if you want solid flat-rate cashback on all other purchases with minimal hassle. The annual fee is $95, however, this is waived for the first year.

Standout Rewards and Benefits for Digital Nomads

  • 10x miles per dollar at Hotels.com/venture

  • 2x miles per dollar on every other purchase

  • No blackout dates

  • Miles never expire

  • Signup bonus: 50,000 bonus miles for spending $3000 in the first 3 months

No Annual Fee Card: Discover It Miles

The Discover It Miles is a no fuss, no annual fee travel card that gives 1.5x miles per dollar for all purchases made on it. The miles you earn in your first year are also doubled, which equates to 3x miles per dollar. However, unlike more premium travel cards, it does not come with a plethora of amazing or luxurious benefits. If you don’t want to worry about different purchase categories or annual fees, the Discover It Miles is a great stress-free card offering some solid cash back.

Standout Rewards and Benefits for Digital Nomads

  • No annual fee

  • Unlimited 1.5x miles per dollar on purchases

  • Double Miles in your first year (given to you at the end of the year)

While these are 3 fantastic cards that can greatly assist digital nomads, it is always worth asking yourself what are your main expenses when you travel. Not all digital nomads have the same expenses, for example, one may heavily use air travel while another may prefer hitting the open road. If you are the latter, make sure to take a look at some of our luxury car rentals.  When searching for a travel card, keep your main travel expenses in mind and tailor your card choices to them to get the most bang for your buck.
