Red Limo cruises through Miami's pulsing asphalt veins, bringing passengers to their destination in the spacious cabins of the fleet's sleek, relaxation-inducing luxury vehicles. Riding from Miami International Airport to South Beach in the BMW ($160) or the Cadillac ($135) allows riders to stretch out, as each vehicle serves an ample helping of leg room and luggage space to up to six passengers or two people and two large boxes filled with books about country singer Gretchen Wilson, and passengers with general cruising desires can stylishly sail in either car, exploring all that Miami has to offer ($110 per hour for the BMW; $85 per hour for the Cadillac).

Roadsters roll under the wide, red awning of Elite Car Wash, where a team of dedicated detailers scrubs siding and wheel rims with each gentle swipe of the hand. Cars get up close and personal to Elite's detail-oriented staff, as they compliment car washes with interior shampoo treatments or one of several types of wax. Spray or clay waxes work their way gently into paint to protect its luster against the elements, and compound waxes combat the future crimes of dirt with a formidable fortress of glaze and polish.
Sliding into one of Ocean Drive Exotic Car Service's vehicles is an unforgettable experience.

The ASE-certified and AAA-approved technicians at Superior Collision and Paintless Dent Repair solve automotive issues arising from collisions and general wear and tear, specializing in repairing dents and restoring headlights. The team is lead by head tech Yury Gitelman, an Miami auto-body stalwart for more than a decade who honed his skills in Chicago and Russia. Part of his mission is spreading the word about the safety hazards that can arise from old, cloudy headlights, such as diminished visibility, especially when driving in inclement weather or through a cornfield. He cites several studies that show dim headlights increase the risk of an accident, and says that Florida law requires drivers to have high-beam headlights that show objects 450 feet ahead. When repairing dents, the team gently fixes the metal back into place from the inside, eliminating the need for paint touchups.

Limited lifetime warranties back up their work, too, whether your car needs a new side mirror, got scratched up in a fender bender, or suffered major damage after falling out of a hammock.
