    Evening!

    Finally got round to having a chance to clean up my newly aquired C55 today.


    Still need to give it a full machine polish, but its looking pretty respectable I reckon!

    Just had the wheels powder coated and the front bumper sprayed.

    Anyway here is how it is at the moment:

    Thanks for looking.

    Terry.

    It looks fabulous - a lovely car (but a bugger to keep clean).

    Looking in great condition Terry, you've also got the best colour combination - IMO (black & black leather) - same as mine! I've also changed my front grill to the larger Merc star like you! Enjoy.

    Thanks for all the comments guys.

    I got them done by Chameleon in Renfrew. The finish is second to none mate, and I am fussy! They have recently changed hands so are doing good prices for a 1 day turnaround at the moment. Feel free to have a look at mine if you want.

    It can be retrofitted;)

    Oh yeah I know mate, I am no stranger to dismantling and messing about with pretty much every car I own - its just getting hold of the trim at a reasonable price!

    Get the 3M carbon wrap.

    I know this is a BMW but it shows how good it can look.....
