    ....and it's mine :D

    Bryan @ Drive&Shine did a fine job today - the car was absolutely filthy, and now looks 100x better than when I first collected it, after the MB dealer valet.

    Verrrrrry close indeed - have to lift up the nose and have airmatic suspension on it's highest setting when going up or down the drive - and if I have a passenger on the way out, the underside of the lip does scrape on the bottom :eek:

    Looks fantastic !!! I live very close to Chessington so might give them a call.

    Isnt there also a guy near Dorking/Guildford that uses the £2k wax and is at the beck and call of footballers and other such celeb folk ?
