    Noticed that my Diff heat sink was looking a bit shabby, so with an ever-so-light spraying of (744 Brilliant Sliver) on the rear cross-section (only) it looks as good as new:

    Update for late 2015:

    Affalterbach logo for the gear selector. I always thought it looked odd on the non-keyless go models to have no logo on it:

    Got myself a DAS-6 DA Polisher, I think the results speak for themselves. Amazing considering I dont really know what im doing: :D

    A 10 year old car with leather seats is bound to have the odd scuffs. Bought a kit off eBay which dyes the scuffed areas making it look as good as new (apart from the creasing which I have stopped in its cracks now with various products)

    Wasnt a quick lap, it had been raining extremely heavy for nearly 10 hours before. One thing is for sure, the CLS55 AMG is no track car - far too heavy!

    They did a good job there. Looks very tidy.

    How long did they keep your car for Karl?
