    Can Vario roof glass be re coated ?

    2009 R171 Slk 280. I have noticed that one of the black triangular glass panels of my Vario roof is partially discoloured/faded. It's almost as if it has lost some of the paint covering (if indeed it had any) Has anyone else had this problem, and can it be restored ?

    Powder coated calipers - keeping them clean

    My calipers are powder coated yellow. When clean they look superb, but they get dirty quickly. The only way I have found to clean them is to remove the wheels and get to work on them. I don't mind doing this, but what is the best product to use to clean brake dust etc. off them? And is...
