    Hi As part of our central heating upgrade, we had a new Chrome heated towel installed, now I have the dilemma of how to best disquise the pipework. With hindsight I should have requested some chrome piping be used, but didn't think with everything else going on. The two options that I...

    Copper paste substance on strut towers of a W220

    Here is one for the experts here! I had a look at a W220 Biturbo and so far, all looking good. However, there was this unusual 'paste' on the top of both front suspension towers. It literally looked like the metallic copper 'paste' that Humbrol do for model kits and that had been wiped off...

    1998 C250 TD In Designo Copper Orange

    Have never seen a W202 in the UK with this rare colour and it really is one of a kind. I recall seeing some images on the net of a rare W202 C55 AMG in the very colour.
