A different look at Palomar Mtn

Hi All,
So my oldest son and I went for a cruise on Saturday after being told the wait time at K1 Speed in Carlsbad was 2.5 hours. I decided to take him up to Palomar and man was I surprised. Things started getting a bit interesting at about 4,000 Ft, here is a picture at the store.

Sweet looking E39 M5. On another note I went to K1 Anaheim on my spring break last week and they were booked with JR Races for 6 hours. We went for a drive to GMR instead.

Thanks Yaphet!
I really like the way the muffler delete sounds sounds with the S62, I think the RPI E60s are louder though. Heading up to the LA BMW CCA performance driving event on 5/4 at Fontana so I will be primed and ready for another Palomar Run.
