Finally have my euro car part wings on, surprisingly good fit.
Had a lot of drama with this car, nothing to do with drivability, but the corrosion was the worst i have seen - Think old sprinter.
any way underneath its like brand new.
fitment of the new wings is not 100%...
I have a CLS350 with Diamond cut AMG 18" alloys, which were refurbished about 18 months ago. After about 9 months the first signs of milkiness appeared again around one of the hubs and now all four have gone again despite me following a strict cleaning, drying and polishing routine. I...
I posted these over on the AMG Lounge section but thought they would be relevant here aswell....it may give people some inspiration when having their wheels done or callipers painted. if anything, it might rule out what not to have as the colour on the callipers is proving a bit marmite.
Had my local body shop re-paint my calipers, wasn't sure if would make much difference as the wheels pretty much cover them! But after picking them up today I am pretty pleased with the results despite the costs!
Will probably refurbish the wheels next, luckily only one of them has any kerb...
Following on from my Mb project, i've just got my front bumper back from a good friend of mine in Basildon.
He done a awesome job as always and by god the car looks good.
The bumper was badly stone chiped and had a bad spray before i got it and it had been buggin me since i got the car lol
After ages i got time to paint my c43
Whilst stripping the car down found rust on all 4 doors on edges where rubber seal sits
Both front wings were rusty
Bootlid was far gone too
So i then found a complete w202 which i purchased for all the panels as they were mint and rust free
A little aggressive scraping at the bibbles on the wing showed the front edge to be a colander so I shoved a load of plod in to cover the holes up.
Time to buy a new one. Looking around the bay, I came across a company called Car Parts Express who would supply a new wing painted to my colour...
Sorry if this seems a dumb question but I’ve never owned a car with colour coded plastic bits before…
I’m sure someone here can tell me if the plastic body parts are sprayed the same as the rest of the car paintwork or manufactured as colour coded…I’ll probably want to replace my rear bumper...
Need some help please. My W211 E55 has a rubber kind of spoiler on the boot. My wife thinks it looks okay but to me it look like a bit of draft excluded stuck on the boot.
So Im planning on getting a better one, but unsure what to get and whether to go the carbon route.
Rear undertray off my SL55 - painted obsidian black (so when you look at the back of the car you don't have a grey weathered undertray peering back at you from underneath the nicely polished bumper).
£30 plus delivery or buyer can collect from Lancashire.

This is my first post of the forum so be nice! I have just got myself a 2010 E class coupe with some very rusty brakes and hubs, so i decided to paint them. I could not make my mind up between red or silver so did both in the end! I have decided I prefer the silver and will be painted...
The non painted bit on lower rear bumper (62 reg sport plus) has gone blotchey, tried wd40 which worked for about an hour then it went blotchy again, someone suggested using peanut butter presumably smooth, this cant be true can it? Eddie :crazy:
just come across something quite interesting and grabbed my set from these guys. They are offerering painted (colour matched) mud flaps for the W219 CLS
Can't get them from MB dealers as much as i've been searching and ringing

After quizzing the forum a few weeks back, and receiving a considerable amount of helpful advice, I’ve finished painting the callipers on my SL.
Colour choice was the big problem, but after resisting red, I went for black rather than silver, in particular metallic matt with white MB decals. I’m...
