    Restored my AMG E63 alcantara steering wheel

    The car has done 29k so relatively low miles, but the car had horrible alcantara on the wheel. I used elbow grease and car shampoo foam, and I think the results speak for themselves! Very happy and the wheel feels amazing now. :bannana:

    W208 CLK steering alignment?

    Hey, when driving in a straight line my wheel isn't exactly in the centre. I knew on older mercs you could remove and replace the steering wheel to adjust this, my local garage says not so on this car, can anyone confirm this or make any suggestions?
