All the small details, I received a new engine badge in the post today. Pretty minor but looks loads better!

Original badge was letting the OCD side down.

Put some OEM floormats, rather ridiculous lookin' aftermarket....
I've got OEM mats but these are more practical. I'll replace the OEMs with some some new custom mats eventually not jet black AMG ones it came with.

It's officially mine now I've got my plate on and some new number plate frames!

I'm surprised the previous plate on the back stayed on, it was held on by about 1cm of double sided tape and some prayers it seems!

Hold up a minute. You're saying W221 boot mats are a direct fit in the CL? 😯

I've been looking for yonks for a mat for my CL. 😵
Sorry to break it to you but it does appear that is the case!! haha

I was going to look for a boot protector for the CL but thought I'd try the S Class (221) I already had, just in case. Turns out it fits just fine.

Even the floor mats are almost a direct fit, the rears are a little big but the front are identical.

Well, the C216 is really just a SWB W221 for the owner driver without children…

Or for one who has children but karts them around in the other half's ML or my old Shogun! haha

I've actually ordered some more conventional luxurious mats for the CL. It came with some AMG mats which were a bit tatty but also black so don't match the interior. I found a firm called Autostyle which came up a few times on a rather large detailing forum. A bit of back and forth on e-mail and I received some samples. The new ones should be with me, in about 7 days.
